Cookie statement 

What are cookies?
The website of Stichting Mars Pensioenfonds (hereinafter referred to as ‘Mars Pension Fund’, 'the Fund' or 'we') uses cookies. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer, tablet or mobile telephone. Cookies are placed when you visit the website. Some cookies ensure that the website functions properly. Others help to align the website more closely to the wishes and preferences of the users. The Mars Pension Fund uses functional and analytical cookies. These cookies have very little impact on your privacy and therefore can be placed without permission. See our privacy statement for further information.

Functional cookies
Functional cookies are technically necessary for the website to function properly, for example to remember your settings or login sessions and for website security. Without these cookies, you would not be able to use our website efficiently. The period of validity of these cookies is limited to the length of the browser session.

Analytical cookies
Analytical cookies allow us to track information about visits to the fund's website. Mars Pension Fund uses Google Analytics. Google Analytics is an analysis program created by Google LLC ('Google'). Google Analytics uses 'cookies'. These cookies help the fund to analyze how visitors use the website. This allows the fund to improve the website. The information generated by these cookies about your website use is anonymous and cannot be traced back to you.

Mars Pension Fund has set up Google Analytics in a privacy-friendly manner, in accordance with the requirements of the Dutch Data Protection Authority. This means that we have instructed Google to remove the last octet (consisting of 3 digits) of your IP address before it is stored by Google. This reduces the risk that the IP address can be traced to a specific visitor. We have also disabled the 'data sharing' option, which means that your data will not be shared with Google for Google's own purposes, including, for example, for advertising purposes. In addition, the fund has concluded a processor's agreement with Google, which includes agreements on the protection of your personal data. We do not use other Google services in combination with the Google Analytics cookies.

The validity of the Google Analytics cookies is limited to 14 months. The limited information shared with Google through the use of Google Analytics is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google bases this transfer on the standard clauses approved by the European Commission. Google may provide the information obtained to third parties if Google is legally required to do so, or to the extent that these third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
