We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize our website experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users’ experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our website with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices. This includes a device's IP address (processed during your session and stored in a de-identified form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), and the preferred language used to display our website. Hotjar stores this information on our behalf in a pseudonymized user profile. Hotjar is contractually forbidden to sell any of the data collected on our behalf.

We pay for adverts to increase awareness of our services. Some of these are 'targeted' at people who have been on our site before, or have viewed other relevant sites. To do this we provide information to the advertising company by placing a small pixel on certain pages. This information can't be used to identify you.
