Do all cookies work in the same way?


There are differences between cookies, in terms of function, duration and the party installing the cookie.


The different cookies according to their function:


A technical cookie is strictly necessary in order to ensure, for the benefit of Internet users, the proper functioning of a website and certain functions (on a technical level). For example, it is used to ensure access to protected parts of a website. Without this type of cookie, certain services (such as login, shopping cart and electronic payment) cannot function.


An analysis cookie collects information about how a visitor uses a website, for example which page is visited most often and which page displays error messages. The purpose of this type of cookie is to provide information to the website provider about how the website is working and how it can be improved.

This cookie also improves the user-friendliness for visitors.


A functional cookie makes it possible to retain the choices made by the user, whether it is a choice about, for example, currency, language or region. Thus, the user does not have to systematically indicate his or her elements and preferences. In this way, the functional cookie improves the user-friendliness of the site for visitors.


An advertising cookie is used to send website visitors the advertisements that best suit them, to ensure that the site does not systematically display the same advertisements to them and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They are usually installed by advertising networks with the permission of the website operator. They record all visits to a website.


The different cookies according to their duration


A session cookie is installed on the visitor’s computer and collects data for as long as the visitor actually visits the website in question. This cookie is deleted when you close your browser.


A persistent or permanent cookie is installed on the visitor’s computer for a specific (extended) period.


The different cookies according to the installing party:


A direct or original cookie (first party cookie) is a cookie that is linked to the website visited at that moment by the Internet user.


A third party cookie is a cookie that is placed by another party. This includes, for example, entities displaying advertisements and (external) application providers, whose advertisement or application is integrated into the visited website.


How can I express my choices?


In accordance with Directive 2002/58/EC of 12 July 2002, the Publisher collects your prior consent to the deposit of advertising cookies.


You can configure your browser to indicate whether you accept cookies, and if so, which ones.


The configuration of each browser is different. It is usually described in the help menu of your browser. This will tell you how to change your cookie wishes.
