It applies to the following website: www.vredestein.com.

When you use our website and services directly, the entity identified in the "About us" section of the website acts as a data controller.

The term 'cookies' is often used as a collective term for various types of techniques, such as HTML cookies, Flash cookies, scripts, web beacons and pixel tags. With each of these techniques, a web server places a small text file on a visiting device, and the file can be read during further use. For convenience, these techniques are collectively referred to below as "cookies." Cookies are used, among other things, to provide website security, store settings, log in to a website, analyze how a website is used and personalize website content to the user.

 

2. Types of cookies we use

We use the following categories of cookies:

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential to enable you to move around the website and use its features, such as accessing its secure areas. Without these cookies, services like passwordless login and shopping baskets cannot be provided. Because these cookies are essential for using a website, they cannot be turned off without severely affecting your use of it.

Analytic cookies

We use Google Analytics cookies to help us understand how customers arrive at our website, browse it and use it, as well as highlight areas where we can improve it, such as navigation, shopping experience and marketing campaigns.

Performance cookies

These cookies collect information on how people use our website and enable us to improve functionalities and performance. The data stored by these cookies never includes personal information that can identify you.

Functionality cookies

These cookies remember your login information and preferences so that you do not have to type in your username every time you access the website. It also stores your language preferences. Functionality cookies provide you with a personalized experience based on your selections, making your visits more efficient and pleasant.

Advertising and social media cookies

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an ad as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.  Usually, third-party advertising networks place these cookies.  They remember the websites you visit, and that information is shared with other parties, such as advertisers. For example, we use third-party companies to provide you with more personalized ads when visiting other websites.

In addition, social media platforms, such as Facebook and Twitter, can use cookies to see if you are logged in, enabling you to "like" content or forward it to others. Depending on your settings, these third parties may use your information for their own purposes, such as advertising. If you would like to know more about this, refer to the privacy notice of these external parties.
