Which Cookies Do We Use?
Our website cannot function properly without certain cookies. We use the following types of necessary cookies, also known as functional cookies:
- Consent: stores the user's cookie and marketing consent state for the current domain
- Cart & Currency: necessary for the shopping cart functionality and secure checkout/payment function on the website.
Analytical cookies, also known as statistical cookies, allow us to further develop and improve the functionality of our website by analysing your use of our website. In some cases they improve the speed with which we can process your request. These cookies channel back information to our data analytics tool, Google Analytics from Google LLC (Google). We receive information on how you use and interact with our websites as well as on the amount of time that you spend on it. We also collect basic information that relates to the request that is made from your browser when you visit the websites. These data may include information such as your last visit date and time, the duration of your visit, the timestamp of the browser request, your IP address and basic HTTP header information (like referral URL and user agent), information about the website you have previously visited as well as demographic information.
We have followed the Manual for Privacy Friendly Google Analytics Settings of the Dutch Data Protection Authority. This means, among other things, that we have instructed Google to delete the last three digits of your IP address (making it difficult to trace the IP address to a specific visitor) and that we have disabled the default settings for sharing data with Google. In addition, we have entered into a data processing agreement with Google. We do not use any other Google services in combination with the Google Analytics cookies. The limited information that is shared with Google through the use of Google Analytics can be transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
You can choose not to consent to the use of analytical cookies or withdraw your consent at any time as is explained in the section “Enabling, disabling, and deleting cookies” below.
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors across websites. The intention is to display ads that are relevant and engaging for the individual user and thereby more valuable for users, publishers and third party advertisers. You can choose not to consent to the use of marketing cookies or withdraw your consent at any time as is explained in the section “Enabling, disabling, and deleting cookies” below.
