2. What are cookies and why are they important?

Cookies are small text files that websites save on your computer or mobile device.

They gather information about, for example, your personal preferences, website visit and device, in order to improve the functionality and user experience of those websites.

Some cookies directly or indirectly gather personal data and are therefore privacy-sensitive. For that reason they are also covered by European and Belgian legislation.

The use of cookies is regulated by the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union via the e-Privacy Directive 2002/58/EC.

In the meantime, all EU Member States have transposed this Directive into national legislation. This implies that the use of cookies and the legislation on cookies is regulated differently in each European country.

In Belgium, this is done via an adapted version of Article 129 of the Law of 13 June 2005 on electronic communication.

II. Functional cookies

Functional cookies gather information about the choices and preferences of visitors and offer the possibility of remembering and customising language and other local settings.

III. Analytical or performance cookies

Analytical or performance cookies gather information about visitors’ behaviour, to measure the performance of the website in question and improve the user experience.

IV. Targeting or advertising cookies

Targeting or advertising cookies follow visitors (through their browsing behaviour) to compile customer or user profiles.
