The profile built up in this way is not linked to your name, address, email address and so on, but is only used to tailor advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant to you as possible.
With your consent, our advertisers place "tracking cookies" on your equipment. They use these cookies to keep track of which pages from their network you visit, in order to build up a profile of your online surfing behaviour. This profile is partly built on the basis of similar information they receive from your visit to other websites from their network. This profile is not linked to your name, address, e-mail address and the like as known to us, but is only used to tailor advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant to you as possible."
