What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that a web page places on the visitor's computer or mobile device. The cookie stores information such as certain preferences of the visitor. Each cookie includes a unique code that permits the website to recognise your browser during the visit to the website (a "session cookie") or during later, repeat visits (a "permanent cookie").

Cookies can be placed by the website server which you visit, or by partners with which the website collaborates. The website server can only read cookies placed by it; it cannot access other information on your computer or mobile device. Cookies are stored on your computer or mobile device in your browser's folder. The contents of a cookie generally comprise the name of the server that has placed the cookie, an expiry date and a unique code.

Cookies generally make the interaction between visitor and website easier and smoother, and help the visitor to navigate among the different sections of the website. Cookies can also be used to make the contents of a website or the associated advertising more relevant to the individual user or the user's personal tastes.

However, cookies and similar technologies cannot be used to systematically gather information that could identify users to our website. They only help us to improve the operation of our website, to understand the interests of our users and to measure the effectiveness of our website content.

You can specify how cookies are used on the sites that you visit, by adjusting your browser settings to accept or reject cookies, or to accept them partially. In the latter case you can for instance specify which websites can place cookies and which not. The site administrator can then take this "consent" as a legal basis for processing your personal information. You can withdraw this consent at any time, although this does not affect the legality of processing your information before the consent was withdrawn.

On the other hand you are entitled, on request and free of cost, to oppose any processing of your personal data that has already been done. You are also entitled to consult your information, to have it corrected or to have it deleted. You are further entitled to impose limitations on the processing of your personal information, to oppose its processing, and to oppose it being passed on to third parties. Finally, you are entitled to submit complaints to the Privacy Commission concerning the processing of your personal information.

The information gathered is held for a maximum period of one year, after which all information must be deleted.
