How do we use cookies?

The LABIOMISTA website uses Google Analytics, a service offered by Google, Inc. (hereafter ‘Google’) for analysing website traffic. To do this, Google Analytics uses ‘cookies’: text files that are placed on your computer.

We mak sure to anonymise your IP address before sending it to Google.

In accordance with its privacy shield certification, Google certifies that it complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield Framework. Google may pass on the data collected by Google Analytics to third parties, if required to do so by law or if those third parties process these data on Google's behalf.

Under the terms of the Google Analytics contract, Google may not link the IP address of the person concerned to other data held by Google.

You can refuse to use cookies from Google Analytics by downloading and installing the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

Cookies also serve to record whether or not the data subject agrees to the use of cookies on the city of Genk website, so that this should not be requested at every visit.
