A cookie is a small text file which our website asks to store on your computer. We do this in order to learn how our website is used and how we can improve it for our visitors. We also record visitor statistics and data on how you reached our website. There are two types of first party cookies: those which are removed once you leave the website (session cookies), and those which are stored over a longer period (usually 30 days on this website) or until the user deletes them (persistent cookies). This website makes use of both types. Even third party cookies can occur on this website. These come from a source other than BlueStep, eg. an advertising firm we employ to measure the effects of our marketing efforts or the behaviour of our visitors on our website. We try to be restrictive in our use of third party cookies and in the case these are used, it is to better understand how our visitors behave online, in order to be more relevant in our online marketing. Our cookies do not contain any personally identifiable information.
