What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files. When you visit a website, these are stored in the Temporary Internet Files folder on your computer. When visiting websites, your browser checks whether these files are present and what your desired settings are. A website can therefore apply your preferences to the site.
Cookies give us insight into how you use our website. In this manner, we can improve pages so that they become more relevant to you and you can more easily find what you are looking for. Cookies are also used for our marketing purposes (via the tool Hubspot).
Cookies are not harmful to your computer.
A distinction is drawn between different types of cookies.
- Remembering information entered in (contact) forms or when ordering.
- Saving preferences such as language and location.
- Saving desired settings for video playback, such as buffer size and screen resolution.
- Saving log-in data so you don’t have to re-enter it every time.

Social media cookies
You can share the articles and videos you view on our website through social media. Cookies are placed by Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Google for the functionality of the share option.
Behavioural content cookies
Our aim is to provide visitors to our website with information that is as relevant as possible to them. For this reason, why we try as far as possible to adapt our site to each visitor. We do so through the content of our website as well as through the advertisements and special offers displayed.
In order to make these adjustments, we try to gain a picture of your preferred interests based on our websites you visit on the Internet. We then adapt the content of our website to the requirements of different customer groups on the basis of these interests. For example, you could be included in a particular category based on surfing behaviour, such as ‘men aged 30 to 45 years, married and with children interested in football’. The content presented to this category may differ from that presented to the ‘women aged 20 to 30 years, unmarried and interested in travelling’ segment.
These cookies allow the website to register your visit in order to make an assessment of your interests. We use the tool called Hubspot for this purpose.
Other / adventitious cookies
Because of the manner in which the Internet and websites work, we may not always have insight into the cookies placed by third parties via our website. This is all the more the case if our web pages contain embedded elements; these include texts, documents, pictures or videos saved with another party, but which are displayed on, in or via our website.
If you should encounter cookies on this website that fall into this category but that have not been mentioned above, please let us know. You can also contact the relevant parties directly to ask them what cookies they place, what their reasons for doing so are, what the respective lifetimes of the cookies are and in what manner they guarantee your privacy.
For all cookies placed by third parties and the possible data they collect with said cookies, we refer to the relevant statements provided by these parties on their own websites. Sentech BV has no influence on this.
