What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files. When you visit a site, they are stored in the folder ‘temporary internet files’ on your computer. While visiting a site, your browser checks if these files are there and what your desired settings are. This way, a website can edit your preferences on the site.
Cookies show us how you use our website. Therefore we can improve pages to make them more relevant for you and you’ll be able to find what you are looking for more easily. Cookies are also used for marketing purposes.
Cookies are not harmful for your computer.
A distinction is made between different kinds of cookies.

Social media cookies
All the articles and videos that you view on our website can be shared on social media. For the functionality of the sharing option, cookies are being placed by Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google.
Behavior-dependent content cookies
Our goal is to provide information that is as relevant as possible to the visitors of our website. Therefore we try to adjust our site as much as possible to every visitor. This applies to both the content of our website as to advertising and offers that are being shown.
To be able to do this, we try to get an idea of your probable interests without building a profile that is traceable to a person, based on the websites you visit on the internet. We modify the content on our website to different groups of customers based on these interests. For instance, you can be categorized in the group “Male, aged 30 to 45, married with kids interested in soccer.” based on these interests. This group can get other content than “Female, aged 20 to 30, unmarried and interested in traveling.”
These cookies make it possible that the website registers your visit to estimate your interests.
Other / unforeseen cookies
Because of the way the internet and websites work, it can be that we don’t always have insight in the cookies that are being placed on our website by third parties. This is particularly the case when our web pages use embedded elements; these are texts, documents, images or videos that are stored at another party, but that can be shown on, in, or through our website. If you come across cookies in this category on our website and we haven’t mentioned it, please let us know. You can also contact the other party directly to ask which cookies they placed, what their reason is for doing so, what the life cycle of these cookies is and in what way they guarantee your privacy.
