What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences (e.g. preferred language), either for a single visit or for multiple repeat visits. They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register, remain logged in, and use the webshop. Cookies make it easier for you to browse through the site and for us to maintain it. They also help us to control the operation of the website. Most cookies do not contain any personal information and you as a person cannot be identified through them. It is also important to note that we only keep the so-called hash of your password, not the password itself. All the stored data is necessary for the website to operate correctly and to ensure that its functions are working, and they are stored in a way that no unauthorized person can get access to them.
Our website records and handles the following data:
- your IP address;
- the type of your browser;
- settings of your OS (e.g. preferred language);
- the date and time of your visit;
- the visited (sub)page, function or service.
It is not mandatory to accept all cookies. Most browsers accept them automatically, but these settings can be changed so that you can have a choice each time to accept them or not. Please note that some functions of the webpage may not work properly if you do not accept the cookies.
