Cookie Information

Please note: This page has been made to inform people using our website what exactly a cookie is and what it does.
If you would like to know how long a cookie from us is saved, you should take a look at our Privacy Policy.


What is a cookie and what does it do?

Cookies are messages that web servers pass to your web browser when you visit Internet sites. Your browser stores each message in a small file, called cookie.txt . When you request another page from the server, your browser sends the cookie back to the server.

Why do we use cookies?

Our Web Server uses it as an ID to identify YOU from others and save some of your settings.
For example, when you select the dutch version of our website, a cookie will be saved so that you don’t have to switch every time you connect to our website.
It is also used by some programs on our website (eg. JavaScript) to store temporal data used in the program itself.

What is a cookie policy?

The Cookie Law is a piece of privacy legislation that requires websites to get consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer, smartphone or tablet.
Almost all websites use cookies – little data files – to store information in people’s web browsers.
If you do not like these cookies, you can disable them in the settings of your web browser.

Are Cookies secure?

Cookies that are sent over HTTP (port 80) are not secure as the HTTP protocol is not encrypted.
Cookies sent over HTTPS (port 443) are secure as HTTPS is encrypted.
So, if Facebook sends/receives cookies via HTTP, they can be stolen and used nefariously.
That’s why you should always check for a green padlock right beside your browser’s url bar.
A website without a green padlock is insecure and all data that are sent and received can be hijacked with Man-in-the-middle attack.

Since we would like to serve our users and clients the best service, we always use the encrypted protocol.
All the data you send over our website is secure, this can be verified with the green padlock right beside your browser’s url bar.

Are Cookies bad?

No, cookies are stored in txt files which will never cause any trouble to your device.

Txt files can not be run as a sort of program.
Files saved as a bat, exe or anything similar are not safe as they can be executed and possibly harm your device.
luckily, your browser wouldn’t accept such a file as a cookie, so you do not have to worry, everything is safe and secure.
