Cookies on Aarti2.nl
Around June 5, 2012, new regulations came into effect regarding the use of so-called “cookies” on web pages. These rules have been incorporated in Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act (Tw). The new regulations also relate to your privacy. Because we think your privacy is very important, we would like to inform you about this subject on this page.
Because the new legislation regarding cookies is not yet entirely clear to all authorities how it will work in practice, Aarti2.nl will continue to closely monitor all developments and do everything it can to continue to comply with the new cookie legislation.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on a computer, telephone or tablet. The cookies are read by the browser (including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) when you open an internet page. The creator of a cookie determines what text files he places in the relevant cookie.
As long as you as a user do not enter any personal data on the site you have visited, the cookie cannot contain this information. There are direct and indirect cookies, also known as first- and third-party cookies. In principle, cookies are not dangerous; they are not computer programs and cannot be used to spread computer viruses.
Type of cookies
3.1 First party cookie
With a first-party (direct) cookie, the website in question places a cookie with the user who opens the website. First-party cookies have different purposes. For example, one of the purposes is to remember the user’s login name and to remember items of selected items in a shopping cart.
3.2 Third-party cookie
A third-party cookie ‘follows’ a user over various websites for a longer period of time and is thus able to build a so-called “profile” of a user. These cookies are often used for targeted online advertising. An advertising network then places a cookie on a user’s computer, phone or tablet via a third-party site. This cookie can be read by the network on the various websites that are located in the advertising network.
3.3 Share to social media networks
You will undoubtedly already have experience with companies placing cookies on your computer, tablet or telephone. This happens, for example, when you share products or content from such a site with friends via social networking sites (such as Twitter or Facebook). For more information about this, we refer you to:
