Everything about the use of cookies on this website.

What are 'cookies'?

For collecting and analyzing information about the use of the website, Erasmus MC uses so-called 'cookies': small files that are sent along with pages of a website and stored by your browser.

Only analytical cookies does not use cookies to collect personal data or pseudo-anonymous data. We also do not use remarketing or personalization (so-called 'profiling') and we do not store IP addresses. We therefore do not use so-called tracking cookies: cookies that can follow visitors while surfing other websites.

We only use cookies for research and web statistics, so-called analytical cookies. Erasmus MC does this to understand how visitors use the website. This information helps to improve the site and increase user-friendliness, for example by remembering the menu item of your choice and used search terms for a subsequent visit.

These types of cookies have no impact on your privacy. Because we meet all conditions (we do not collect data for advertising functions and we do not share data with Google or other third parties), we do not need to ask you for permission to place our analytical cookies.

No Google
