In this way we can make the structure, navigation and content as user-friendly as possible. These cookies have little or no impact on your privacy. These cookies do not require any consent, but we think it is important you are aware of them.

 Tracking Cookies

An example where we use Google Analytics is to measure our marketing campaigns. How does this work? Aceragen places advertisements on, for example, LinkedIn. If someone comes to our website via such an advertisement, we can see that. Aceragen knows that there has been someone who clicks through the ad. We don’t know who that is and of course we don’t need to know. In this way, Aceragen can still see through which advertisement is effective.

We allow Google to combine the analytical cookies with its marketing information about you. Therefore the analytical cookies are also tracking cookies that record your web surfing behavior on our websites and on other websites on the internet that have advertising through Google.

We use the tracking cookies to:

  1. Measure the effectiveness of our advertising campaigns.
