What are 'cookies'?

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 make it easier to use, for example by remembering the menu item you chose and search terms used for a next visit.
These types of cookies have no impact on your privacy. Because we also comply with all conditions (for example, 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.
