What are cookies?
Are cookies safe?
Using cookies is completely safe and very common if you use the internet a lot. A cookie never contains personal information like your name, phone number or email address. Because of this, cookies can never be used to approach you directly via email or telemarketing campaigns. It is very important to us that you know exactly what type of cookies we place and what these are used for by third parties. You can read all about this down below.
- Functional cookies: to make sure our website is user-friendly and safe.
- Analytical cookies: to be able to analyse how our website is used.
- Advertising cookies: to be able to place the right advertisements.
- Social media cookies: to make sure you can share or save pictures and articles.
Below you can read exactly what the cookies in these categories do. You can also read about which companies can place cookies on your computer, tablet or phone when you visit our website, since we do not always do it ourselves. Sometimes we use the services of other companies and they place the cookies. The Google company is a good example of this. Google offers us products we can use to measure how many visitors we have on our website and supplies us with some advertisements. To be able to do this they have to place a cookie.
When another company places a cookie, we will refer you via a link to their privacy statement or cookie statement. That way you can read for yourself what these companies do with the cookies they place.

Cookies that enable us to show you relevant advertisements

This income is generated from the advertisements that we show on the pages you visit. We want to make these advertisements (and possibly videos) as relevant to you as we can. In order to achieve this, our advertisement partners place cookies for us.
The advertising cookies make it possible to:
- To ensure you do not see the same advertisement too often.
- Show you advertisements that are relevant to your in particular.
- Show you targeted contextual advertisements (for example: an advertisement for a mascara brand to go along with an article on mascara).
- Keep track of which advertisements are viewed the most.
