What are cookies and why are they used?

Cookies are small information files that are stored on the hard disk of your computer or mobile device via your browser. The Belgian Electronic Communication Act (transposition of the European e-privacy directive) applies to this.

Some of the cookies that we use on our Websites are essential to make the Websites function properly from the technical viewpoint, while other cookies are used to offer you a better, faster and more secure user experience.

Cookies are often divided into the following categories:

  • ‘Session cookies’: cookies that are automatically deleted when the user closes the browser;
  • ‘Permanent cookies’: cookies that are stored on the user’s terminal equipment for a specific time period (cookies can expire after, for example, a few minutes, days or even years);
  • ‘Own cookies’; cookies developed and stored by the operator of the Website; and
  • ‘Third party cookies’: cookies placed by a website that belongs to a different domain than the domain shown in the address bar of the website concerned.

What are social media plug-ins or Facebook Pixels, and what do we use them for?

Besides cookies, we also make use of Facebook Pixel.

Social media plug-ins make it possible to recognise you via your social media profile and to import certain data (such as your identification details and your profile photo). They also make it possible to use social media share buttons (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook). You can find more information about this in your social media platform’s privacy policy. If you do not wish to connect with your social media profile, you can log out of social media before using our Websites.

A Facebook pixel is a piece of code used on a website to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns and derive insight into the actions that people perform on this website. The pixel code is stored in the Website header. If anyone visits the Website and performs an action, then the Facebook pixel is activated and it reports the action. In this way, it is possible to trace which customer performs which actions and the customer can be reached again via future Facebook advertising, targeted at your areas of interest (also called ‘remarketing’). We use pixel data for: (i) ensuring that our advertisements are displayed to the right people, (ii) producing advertising target groups and, (iii) unlocking additional Facebook advertising tools. You can find more information in the Facebook privacy policy. We also advise you to check your own Facebook privacy settings regularly and set your preferences in that way.
