What are cookies and why do we use them?

Cookies are small data files stored on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device via your browser. The Belgian Electronic Communications Act (in implementation of the EU e-Privacy Directive) is applicable to these cookies.

Some of the cookies we use on our website are essential to keep the Websites functioning properly from a technical perspective, while other cookies serve to offer you a better, faster and more secure browsing experience,

Cookies are often broken down into the following categories:

  • “session cookies”: cookies that are automatically deleted when the user closes the browser,
  • “permanent cookies”: cookies that remain stored on the end-user equipment for a specific period of time (these cookies may expire after a few minutes, for example, but also after days or years),
  • “first-party cookies”: cookies developed and placed by the operator of the website itself, and
  • “third-party cookies”: cookies placed by a website that forms part of a different domain to the domain shown in the address bar of the website concerned.


More information about the specific cookies we use on our Websites can be found in Section 4 below. Section 5 provides more detail on how to manage these cookies, or delete them if you prefer.


What are social media plug-ins or Facebook Pixels and why do we use these?

Aside from cookies, we also use Facebook Pixels.

Social media plug-ins enable us to recognise you based on your social media profiles and import certain details (such as you identity and contact details and profile photo). They also enable you to use the social media “share” buttons (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook). More information about this can be found in the privacy policy of your social media platform. If you prefer not to link your social media profiles, you can log out from your profiles prior to using our Websites.


A Facebook Pixel is a piece of code that is used on a website to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns and gain insight into the actions people perform on the website. The Pixel code is placed in the header of the website. When someone visits the website and performs an action, the Facebook Pixel is activated and it will report the action. This means the Pixel can then be used to monitor which customer is performing which actions, and to reach out to the customer via future Facebook advertising tailored to your interests (also referred to as “remarketing”). We use Pixel data to (i) make sure our adverts are shown to the right people, (ii) create advertising target groups and (iii) unlock additional Facebook advertising tools. More information about this can be found in Facebook’s privacy policy. In addition, we recommend that you regularly check your own Facebook privacy settings and use them to configure your preferences.

All main internet browsers give you the option to manage cookies installed on your computer or mobile device.

If you prefer this Website not to place cookies on your computer or device, you can easily change your settings and delete any cookies by adjusting your mobile or desktop browser settings. In many cases, you can configure your mobile or desktop browser setting to show you a notification every time you receive a cookie on your computer or device, you can decide whether to accept such cookies or not. We would like to point out that if you turn off certain cookies we use, there is a possibility of certain parts of our website functioning less well, meaning your browsing experience will no longer be optimal.
