As a website administrator, BOM can place cookies on your device with your consent. Such cookies are also referred to as 'first-party cookies'. However, cookies can also be placed by third parties. In such cases, they are referred to as 'third-party cookies'.

b) Permanent cookies and temporary session cookies

With the help of a permanent cookie, we can recognize you during a new visit to our website. The website can, therefore, be specially set to your preferences. Also, when you have given consent for the placement of cookies, we can remember this through a cookie. This saves you time as you do not have to repeat your preferences continuously, making it easier to use our website.

With the help of a session cookie, we can see which parts of the website you viewed during that visit. We can thereby adjust our service as much as possible to the surfing behavior of our visitors. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.

c) Google Analytics

A cookie from Google is placed on our website as part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to track and get reports on how visitors use the website. Google may disclose this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so or to the extent third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We have not allowed Google to use the acquired analytics information for other Google services.

The information collected by Google is anonymized as much as possible. Your IP address is explicitly not provided. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Concerning the transfer of cookie data, including personal data, to the United States, for example, in the framework of Google Analytics cookies, we emphasize the following. We are aware of the judgment of the EU Court of Justice of July 16, 2020, with implications for the transfer of personal data to the United States. We are currently investigating how we can best address this. When we have found an appropriate solution, we will inform you through this privacy statement.

d) Facebook and Twitter

Our website includes buttons to promote ("like") or share ("tweet") web pages on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These buttons work through pieces of code originating from Facebook and Twitter, respectively. Cookies are placed and personal data is processed using this code. We have no influence on this. Read Facebook’s and Twitter's privacy statements (which may change regularly) to see what they do with your (personal) data processed via these cookies.
