The EU Directive 2009/136/EC states that we have the right to store cookies on your device that are essential for the proper functioning of the website, but that we need your permission for others.

The ACB website may use non-essential cookies. We do not do this to track or identify particular users, but to obtain useful information about the use of the sites in order to be able to improve it for our users.

The types of cookies we use

ACB likes to understand how visitors use its website using specialized analytics services. They track the number of visitors and tell us more about the overall behavior of visitors – they shed light on the search engine keywords that led the user to the site, the average time spent on the site or the average number of pages visited by a user. To do this, we place an «internal analysis cookie» on your computer.

We use the services of Google Analytics to track web statistics. In this case, Google places a «third party cookie» on your computer. This is also the case when we use Google Maps.

ACB uses a cookie during the visitor’s session to find out if Javascript is enabled in their browser.
