What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or application. Your web browser (such as Internet Explorer, Firefox or Chrome) sends these cookies back to the website or application at each separate visit. This allows the website to recognize you and remember things such as personal information or user preferences.
Cookies are very helpful and perform different functions to make your experience with the website as easy as possible. For example, they allow you to easily switch between different web pages, remember your preferences, and improve the functionality of the website.
Dutch law requires that you explicitly request permission for the use of non-functional cookies (so-called opt-in).
