Functional and analytical cookies

Functional cookies (cookies that are necessary to make the website operate), and analytical cookies that have little to no impact on your privacy, will always be placed when you visit our website. These are the following:

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (Google). We use this service to track how visitors use the website, with the aim to improve the website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses this information to track how you use the website, to compile reports on website activity for website operators and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage.

We have signed a data processing amendment with Google, which states that Google acts only as a processor in the processing of the personal data of our website visitors. Google may disclose the information to third parties if Google is legally required, or if third parties process the information on Google's behalf. The European Skull Base Society (ESBS) has no influence on this.

We share data with Google for no other than for the reasons mentioned above, and also don’t make use of other Google services in conjunction with Google Analytics cookies, except for the mutual exchange of web analytics and campaign statistics with our Google AdWords account, to monitor website usage and conversion events. Exchanging measurement data in this way has no or very limited impact on your privacy, because there is no personal information collected and because we do not use this data to tailor ads to your personal preferences.

The information that Google collects is anonymous as far as possible, in accordance with the advice of the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens. Your IP address is masked in part (i.e. the last octet).
