A cookie is a simple small file that is sent with pages from a website and saved by the browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Safari, etc.) on your computer's hard drive. Information is stored in these files. During a subsequent visit to the website, this information is sent back to the server. Cookies do not damage your computer.
Cookies can have various functions. Based on these functions, cookies can be divided into four categories, which are: functional cookies, analytical cookies, performance cookies and advertising cookies. See the table below for an explanation about the various cookies.
These are cookies that are needed for correct functioning of the website. These cookies are, for example, used to enable you to place products in a shopping cart in a webshop or to ensure that personal settings are saved. Without these cookies, the website will not work, or will not work as well.
These are cookies that are used to improve the website by enabling visitor statistics to be viewed, for example, the duration of the use of the website. Based on this information, it can be concluded whether the website meets the visitor's expectations.
These cookies record data about whether or not the users' objectives are being achieved on the website. These data are combined with data from a page that you visited in the past; that is because the party responsible for this cookie will receive a small fee if they have directed you to the website. These cookies are not used very often.
Advertising cookies are used to display relevant adverts to visitors to (social) platforms and other websites. The objective is to display adverts that are individual and as relevant as possible. This enables us to arrange our adverts and marketing as effectively as possible and to offer the best experience to users.
As well as the various types of cookies, cookies can be installed by various parties. To ensure transparency about the party that installs the cookies, these have been given names: first-party, second-party and third-party cookies. Read below exactly what this means.
The cookies are installed by the owner of this website.
Second-party cookies are the same as first-party cookies, except the data is shared with a second party with which a processing agreement has been entered into. You will not notice this.
Cookies that are installed by a company that is not involved directly with the website. For example, Facebook, which enables you to easily share articles.
