Cookie Statement

As our Website uses "cookies", we want to inform you about the different types of cookies we use, which cookies our service providers use and how you can manage and block cookies.

What are Cookies? What types of cookies are there?

Cookies are small text files that your browser receives when you visit a website and that are stored on your computer, tablet or smartphone for a certain period of time. These text files store information such as your language preference or your login details for a website. Do you visit the website again at a later time? Then the website can immediately apply your language preference or you can automatically log in.

Functional cookies - Purpose: Basic service, always mandatory

Functional cookies are cookies that save the preferences of website visitors with the aim of increasing user-friendliness. They are often necessary for the proper functioning of a website. Think for example of websites with a login function or shopping cart. Cookies remember that you are logged in as a user or that you have placed items in the shopping cart. With a multilingual website, the language preference or country preference of the visitor can be remembered.

Analytical cookies - Purpose: Statistics, optional

Does a website use analytical cookies? Then statistical data about the use of the website will be processed. This is very useful for the further development of websites. You can find out which information visitors find useful or superfluous. Analytical cookies keep track of, for instance, how often a website is visited or how often an article on a news site is read. They can also keep track of what region the website visitors come from, and whether the mobile version of the website is more popular than the desktop version or not.

Tracking cookies - purpose: statistics, optional

Tracking cookies are used to build a profile of the website visitor. Based on this, an adjusted version of the website can be shown, for instance. These cookies follow your surfing behaviour so that you can receive personalised offers or advertisements even while you are surfing on other websites. You may, for example, see a previously viewed webshop article reappearing on other websites.

Social sharing buttons in websites often make use of tracking cookies. It is therefore important that you take this into account in your privacy and cookie policy.

First-party cookies versus third-party cookies* : Purpose: statistics tracking, optional

First-party cookies are cookies that are created and sent by the website you are surfing on. The information therefore goes to the website manager itself.

There are also third-party cookies. These cookies are placed when a website contains elements from an external party. Examples are embedded videos, social media widgets, advertisements or integrated software. The external party then sends cookies from its own servers.

*For cookies placed by third parties (such as Google Analytics), please refer to the statements these parties provide on their respective websites. Please note that we cannot exert any influence on the content of these statements or on the content of the cookies of these third parties.

Via the following organisation, a transfer to outside the EEA takes place. 

Google Analytics - USA (Standard contractual clauses)
Facebook - USA (Standard contractual clauses)

Hubspot - USA (Standard contractual clauses and EU data centre)

How to disable cookies?

It is possible to disable cookies via the browser settings. Please note that it is possible that certain page elements will no longer be displayed correctly when cookies are disabled, although we make every effort to ensure that the use of the website runs as smoothly as possible.

Rights of visitors

As cookies can constitute processing of personal data, you as the data subject have the right to the lawful and secure processing of the personal data. More information on the rights of visitors can also be found in the Privacy Statement.
