Types of cookies
Cookies can have different functions. Based on these functions, cookies can be divided into three categories, namely: Necessary cookies, analytical cookies and advertising cookies. See the table below for an explanation of the different cookies.
These are cookies that are required for the proper functioning of the website. These cookies are used, for example, to ensure that you can put products in a shopping cart at a webshop or that personal settings are saved. Without these cookies, the website will not work or will work less well.
These are cookies that are used to improve the website by viewing visitor statistics. Consider, for example, the duration of use. Based on this information, it can be concluded whether the website meets the expectations of the visitor.
Advertising cookies are used to show visitors on (social) platforms and other sites the relevant advertisements. The goal is to display ads that are individual and as relevant as possible. In this way we can organise our advertisements and marketing as efficiently as possible and offer the best experience for users.
In addition to the different types of cookies, cookies can be placed by different parties. To be transparent about who places the cookies, this has been given a name. The so-called first-party, second-party and third-party cookies. Read below what this means exactly.
The cookies are placed by the owner of this website.
Second-party cookies are the same as first-party cookies, except that the data is shared with a second party with whom a processing agreement has been concluded. You won’t notice anything else about this.
Cookies placed by a company that is not directly involved with the website. Think of Facebook, which makes it possible for you to easily share articles.
