We respect your privacy and take the protection of your personal information very seriously and do so in strict accordance with the Dutch GDPR Implementation Act (Uitvoeringswet Algemene Verordening gegevensbescherming) (UAVG), the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) and the Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (“PECD”).

 

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that websites store on the visitor's computer or device when they are accessed and store information about the user and the website. Cookies can serve different purposes.

 

Cookies can be very useful for you, as they increase the user experience for multiple website visits. If you use the same device and the same browser for multiple visits to a website, the visited website can adapt displayed content to your interests and needs.

 

Why do we use cookies?

In order to be able to offer a personalized and appealing service and improvements to the website, we collect and store information about how you use our offer. We use cookies, for example to personalize pages or to keep users safe for the duration of their visit. These cookies are completely secure and do not contain any sensitive information.

 

What types of cookies do we use?

We use both first party cookies, which are issued from our website’s own domain, and third-party cookies, which belong to and are managed by other parties, such as our partners or service providers.

 

The cookies used on our website can be divided into two categories:

 

a)       Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that will be deleted from your device once you close your browser. They are used to remember your device as you move within our website.

 

b)      Persistent cookies: These are longer-lasting cookies that remain on your device even after you close your browser. They are used to recognize your device each time you use our website and to remember your preferences.

 

The classification as technically necessary or technically non-necessary also determines the cookies we use:

 

Technically necessary cookies

Technically necessary cookies are required for our website to function properly; they enable you to navigate our website efficiently and use its functional features. An example of this is, for example, the reminder of recently performed actions (e.g., entered text) when you return to a page within the same session.

 

Technically non-essential cookies

Technically non-essential cookies are not necessary for the proper functioning of our website, but they enable us to improve the content of our website, compile statistics for internal market analysis purposes, provide you with a more personalized online experience or provide additional features. In particular we use advertising and analytical cookies.

 

Advertising cookies are used to provide content that is more relevant to you and your interests (direct marketing). They can be used to provide targeted advertising or to limit the frequency with which you are shown an advertisement. They also help us measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. In addition, we may use these cookies to store which websites you have visited.

 

Analytical cookies are used by third parties. These cookies allow third parties to recognize that you have visited our website. We and our third-party providers may also combine information obtained from these cookies with personal information available from other sources, including data collected about you when you use other websites and data collected about you when you are offline, whether on our website or data maintained by the third-party provider.

a) Hotjar

We use Hotjar, a web analytics service provided by Hotjar Ltd, Level 2, St Julian's Business Centre, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julian's STJ 1000, Malta ("Hotjar"), to better understand usage patterns, to better understand the needs of our users and to optimize our services and user experience. Hotjar enables us to better understand the user experience on our sites (i.e., how long users spend on which of our sites, which links they click, what they like and dislike, etc.) so that we can tailor our offerings based on user feedback.

 

Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect information about user behaviour and user devices (in particular, a device's IP address (which is collected and stored in anonymized form), screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic information (on a country-by-country basis only), preferred language for viewing our web site). Hotjar stores this data in a pseudonymized user profile. Neither Hotjar nor we will use this information to identify individual users, nor will the data be merged with other data about individual users. You can object to the creation of user profiles, the storage of data about your use of our site by Hotjar, and the use of tracking cookies by Hotjar on other sites at any time by following this link https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out. The use of Hotjar is based on your consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

 

b) Facebook Remarketing

Within our website, so-called "Facebook pixels" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Meta Platforms Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA, or if you are a resident of the EU, Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland ("Facebook"), are used. With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our offer as a target group for the display of advertisements, so-called "Facebook ads". Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our website. This means that with the help of the Facebook pixel we want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad.

 

You can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data for the display of Facebook ads. To do so, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising: https://www.facebook.com/settings?tab=ads  or declare the objection via the US page http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU page http://www.youronlinechoices.com/. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR, our legitimate interest. The use of Facebook Remarketing is based on your consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.

 

c) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc. This means that the data collected can in principle be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, whereby the IP addresses are anonymised by means of IP anonymisation so that an allocation is not possible. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can object to the collection and processing of this data by Google Analytics by setting an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR, our legitimate interest. The use of Google Analytics is based on your consent according to Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR.
