Cookie Policy

To make your experience on our website as pleasant and positive as possible, we need to use cookies.
You can learn all about how cookies work on this page.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your smartphone, tablet or computer. The information contained in this text file is used for functional, commercial or statistical purposes. We will explain the differences between these three things below. In addition to cookies, there are other methods we may use to store and read certain information on your computer, tablet or smartphone. Local storage is one example. This works more or less the same way as a cookie. For your convenience, we will group both concepts under the heading 'cookies' in this explanation. To set cookies, we use some common techniques, such as Javascript and pixel tracking. Are cookies safe? The use of cookies is quite safe and very common if you use the Internet a lot. A cookie never contains personal information such as your name, phone number or e-mail address. For this reason, cookies can never be used to contact you directly via e-mail or telemarketing campaigns. It is very important to us that you know exactly what kind of cookies we place and what they are used for by third parties. To learn more about this, read on.

What are cookies used for?

We use cookies for several different purposes:
Below you can read exactly what cookies do in these categories. You can also find out which companies may place cookies on your computer, tablet or phone when you visit our website, as we don't always do this ourselves. Sometimes we use the services of other companies and they place the cookies. Google is a good example. Google provides us with products that we can use to measure the number of visitors we have to our website and provide us with advertisements. To do this, they have to set a cookie.
When another company sets a cookie, we refer you to their privacy statement or privacy policy. That way, you can read for yourself what these companies do with the cookies they set.

Functional cookies

That's why we use them:
You do not need to give permission to use functional cookies, nor can you disable them.

Analytic cookies

Cookies that allow us to optimize our website.
We want you to have a good time on our website. Since we can't keep asking every visitor what's good or bad about our website, we continually optimize our website based on the statistics we collect.
These statistics may include the following:

We collect these types of statistical data using Google Analytics. To do this, Google Analytics sets analytical cookies for us.

Advertising Cookies

Cookies that allow us to show you relevant ads
Maintaining our website and updating content takes a lot of time and labor. In order to fund all of this, we need income. This income is generated by the ads we display on the pages you visit. We want these ads (and possibly videos) to be as relevant as possible to you. To do this, our advertising partners set cookies for us.

We do our best, but unfortunately we can't always control everything.
Despite the fact that we try to keep a complete understanding of the type of cookies that our website sets, it can still happen that third parties set cookies that are not included in this statement. This is simply due to the way the Internet and websites work. This could happen, for example, when we use embedded content in our articles; this is text, social media posts, images or videos that are recorded by a third party, but are displayed on or through our website.
We do our best to try to keep the list of cookies and the companies that set them on this page up to date, but there may be times when a cookie is set by a company that is not on this list. If you notice this happening, please let us know via our contact form. We would be eternally grateful and, of course, we will update the list as soon as possible. If you are looking for information about cookies placed by a third party, it is best to contact the party in question directly.
This statement is subject to change without our visitors being informed. Therefore, we recommend that you check this page regularly to see if there have been any changes since your last visit.
