Information about NDP cookie: The NDP cookie stores your last selection regarding the country for Nationally Defined Parameters (NDPs) e.g. Belgium, in order to re-select it for your next pageview. If you choose an NDP set other than CEN Default then a cookie must be set in order for the calculations to function property. This is because certain aspects of the calculation results are modified depending on the value of the NDP cookie that is sent to the server when the calculation is performed. For this reason if you modify the NDP dropdown menu your selection must be remembered either by a temporary session cookie or a persistent "Functionality" cookie. To sum up:

You will also be notified that Google reCaptcha uses third-party cookies already installed in your device by Google to perform its functions. The plugin will be launched only if you provide your consent to permit its usage of third-party cookies in our contact form.

We use reCaptcha version 2 to protect our contact form from malicious spam bots. To perform its function reCaptcha reads various third-party cookies already installed in your device by Google when you have visited other Google pages (such as the search engine google.com or GoogleMaps) or if you have signed in to your Google account, Gmail account etc. The values stored in these cookies are used by reCaptcha plugin to determine if a user is an actual person or a malicious computer bot trying to abuse our contact form. For this case the typical "I am not a robot" checkbox is displayed. If not enough information is present in Google cookies then you will be presented with a series of image problems to solve (e.g. clicking on certain images).

Therefore third-party cookies by Google are not installed by using this website, if they exist they are already present in your device. We do not have any control over these cookies, we cannot read, modify or delete them. If you choose to not allow the activation of Google reCaptcha plugin then our contact form cannot be submitted.
