    • Functional cookies

These cookies enable us to improve the usability and performance of this website by allowing it to remember choices and customizations you make during your visit, such as your preferred language.

    • Performance cookies

These cookies collect information about how you use our website and help us, for example, to understand what interests our users and measure how effective our communications are. In this way, we can adapt the content of our website more specifically to your needs and thereby improve what we offer you, for example by ensuring that you can easily find what you are looking for. These performance cookies include those set by social media platforms and by Google services deployed on the site.

For example, we rely on Google Analytics to obtain statistics about the usage of the website. Data are sent to servers operated by Google (which might be located outside the EU) and are used to provide Dartco Transmission with aggregate statistics about the number and duration of visits, usage patterns, traffic sources, users’ demographics and searches performed on this website.

Additionally, we may also conduct A/B testing with Google Optimize.

We collect data to keep track of the number of visitors to the various parts of the site, manage visitor traffic and improve functionality and usability. We do not identify individual visitors and we receive anonymized aggregate data.

Google has its own privacy policy. Google self-certifies compliance with the EU-US “Privacy Shield” framework that the US Department of Commerce developed in consultation with the European Commission in order to meet the European “adequacy” standard for privacy protection.
