We only install those cookies which are strictly necessary for the correct functioning of our website.
We also use the services of third parties to analyse the use of our website and to monitor when, where and how people access information so that we can adapt the site to better suit our users' needs. For this service we use PIWIK because it fully respects your privacy. For example, it anonymises your IP by removing its last octet, so we will never know your full IP address.
Cookies we use
- Session cookie: This cookie remembers the information you have been searching for on our website. It is deleted as soon as you close your browser.
- Cookie banner: This cookie is used to remember your choice when you land on our website for the first time and you decide whether or not to accept our cookies. It expires after XXX and is not set again unless you change your browser’s cookie settings.
- Analytics cookie: We use PIWIK to monitor and analyse traffic on our website. PIWIK will collect usage statistics such as the number of page visits, documents downloaded etc. and provides us with aggregate numbers. Any IP addresses collected have the last octet removed and we will therefore never know your exact IP. This cookie is very important for us to evaluate the correct functioning of our website and is therefore always installed by default. Further information on how PIWIK respects your privacy can be found here.
- Social media: Normally, social media buttons install cookies on your website. We do not use any third party social media plugins and therefore no cookies are installed. However, our website offers the possibility to share content with the most common social media platforms. Only when you decide to share a piece of content with a platform, our website will link you to that platform. Be advised that when you use such social sharing media you are bound by the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies of each social media platform.
When there is a vacancy at BEUC, candidates apply via a recruitment form on our website. The recruitment form collects personal data such as your name, last name, email address, or CV. This information is never stored on our webserver and is directly emailed to our Human Resources Department.
