Which cookies do we use?
Social media buttons
The ‘share’ and ‘like’ buttons of social media are cookies. Visitors with accounts on these platforms (facebook, twitter, etc), may be tracked by these third parties, even while ignoring their buttons.
These risks go beyond our reach.
Statistics of the website’s success
To learn which parts of the website are less successful and need improvement, we observe how pages and posts are frequented.
To study in what languages we need to translate this site, we watch the countries visitors surf from.
Embedding of Youtube videos
This enables you to watch videos without having to leave this website.
Protection against spam
When we receive a comment or email, a cookie is sent to the sender to check if the message is not coming from a bot or spammer.
When we are passionate about a product WE USE OURSELVES, we tell the world through an affiliate link. In this way, we will be able to earn a commission if eventually you would buy the product. Only if you click on that link the product-software will remember that your click came through our site. Usually they remember your click 6 months.

WordPress session cookies
The site is powered by WordPress. WP uses session cookies (PHPsessid) to connect your browser to our server. We assume one of their main goals is that you can return to a previous page within the site without reloading all the time. There are also functionalities in the cookies like how often to update the page during the session and even in between your visits. So WordPress remembers somehow your visits to websites. We set the limit to one month wherever we could.
Email safe under EU rules
When you subscribe to our newsletter, a connection is made to our email marketing provider Sendinblue. This company will automatically save your email-address on a list at one of their servers.
Sendinblue is based in Europe and is compliant to the strict European laws. Only the KORPOS-team and the help-desk of SendinBlue can see your address, and only after login.
After you clicked the subscribe button, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a link to confirm, so that we know for sure that you are not a robot and really wish to receive messages from us.
You can unsubscribe from this list any time, no questions asked. There is an unsubscribe link in all our messages, always below in the middle.
Which cookies we DON’T use?
We do NOT remember your preferences in order to offer advertizing.
We do NOT gather your data to sell to third parties! In our opinion this is very immoral.
In general: how to stop cookies while surfing?
There always is the possibility to delete cookies in your browser after you visited sites. See this link for instructions.
But it is easier to install software that automatically disables cookies wherever you surf. We personally have good experience with Ghostery. You can white-list your favorite websites as trustworthy. Ghostery is FREE of charge.
