What are cookies?
When you visit this website, we place cookies on your computer, tablet or phone when your browser settings permit this. Cookies are small, simple text files that are neither harmful to your device nor to the files stored on it.
What cookies do we use and for what purposes?
Some cookies are necessary so that the website works correctly and fully. They ensure for instance that you do not receive (or have to enter) the same information each time you visit our website. We always place these cookies when your browser settings permit this. Unfortunately you cannot unsubscribe from this on our website.
We use Google Analytics cookies to collect information about the use made of and the visits made to our website. Google analyses this data for us. We obscure the final digits of your IP address that is sent to Google and have disabled the option 'gegevens delen'/'share the data' in the Google Analytics environment. Furthermore, we do not use other Google services in conjunction with Google Analytics cookies unless you have consented to this. Because we have taken these measures above, the Google Analytics cookies are classified as 'necessary cookies'.
We also use what are known as 'tracking cookies'. We use these cookies to obtain more information about our visitors and to generate user profiles, which we use to make the website more personal and user-friendly and to show you offers, promotions and adverts that are as relevant to you as possible. We only place tracking cookies if you have consented to this. By accepting marketing cookies, you agree to the placing of tracking cookies, for instance.
The cookies used can be classified into the following categories:
Necessary cookies ensure that a website works correctly and help to make a website more useful, by enabling such basic functions as page navigation and access to secure areas of the website. Without these cookies, a website cannot function correctly.
Preferences cookies ensure that a website can retain information that affects the website's design and the way it works, such as your language preference or the region where you live.
Statistical cookies help to analyse how visitors use a website, by collecting and reporting anonymised data. They analyse the use made of the website and monitor for instance whether particular adverts have led to purchases.
Marketing cookies are primarily used to track visitors when they visit different websites. The reasons for this include enabling certain social media functionalities to be offered and enabling adverts to be displayed that are tailored to and relevant for the individual user. This gives these adverts added value for publishers and external advertisers.

Cookie retention periods and deletion
Most cookies have an expiry date. This means that after a certain period of time, they expire automatically and no longer record any details of your website visit. Please see the List of cookies for the respective retention periods. You can also opt to delete cookies manually before their expiry date has been reached. Please consult your web browser guide for more information about this.
