When you visit our website, “Google Ads” installs a cookie on your device. With that cookie, Google processes the information generated by your device about the use of our website, interactions with our website and advertising measures as well as your IP address, browser information, your previously visited websites and the date and time of access for the purposes of analyzing and visualizing the reach measurement of our advertisements and to display personalized advertisements.

To increase the protection afforded to your data when you visit our web pages, these social media services are implemented as “2-click buttons.” This form of integration ensures that, when accessing a page from within our website containing such tools, you are not automatically connected to the providers’ servers. Only if you activate the social media services and thereby permit for data transmission, the browser will create a direct link to the providers’ servers. The content of the various tools is then transmitted by the provider concerned directly to your browser and then displayed on your screen.
The social media tool tells the provider your previously visited websites, your IP address, browser information, and the date and time of the server request. On making use of any of the social media functions (e.g. clicking the “Share” button, leaving a comment), this information too will be transmitted by the browser directly to the provider for retention. Those providers may use your data for any own purposes as for analytics, marketing, profiling and linking your data to other data collected about you (such as through your user account with the respective provider) even if you are not logged in to your social media account.
The providers process the data partly also in the United States. Under European law, the US does not guarantee an adequate level of data protection. State authorities may have access to this data due to mass surveillance laws. Once your personal data has been disclosed, it will not enjoy the same level of protection and you may not be able to exercise your rights in relation to the data.
By allowing cookies on the Zwart Studio website you agree to the use of the above-mentioned data and the previously described processing by the providers.

Further information on the collection and use of data by the providers and on the rights and possibilities available to you for protecting your privacy in these circumstances can be found in the providers’ data protection/privacy policies:
