Cookies is constantly looking for ways to improve its services and to adapt them as much as possible to the needs of visitors. The website uses cookies. You will need to give your consent to store them on your computer or device.

The following KVK websites are covered by this cookie statement:

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small piece of information that an internet page stores on your computer, smartphone, or other device. Cookies are not harmful to your computer and can be removed from your browser at any time.

Storing and editing cookies

You can choose which cookies you accept. This allows you to manage and modify the cookie settings on this page. If you do not accept cookies, you may be asked whether you accept cookies each time you visit the website. We always place cookies that ensure a well-functioning website. If you have given your consent to storing cookies, you can change your preference at any time.

'Functioneel': Cookies for a well-functioning website

We always place functional cookies for the proper and secure use of our website. For example, this allows you to log onto our website automatically. We also place analytical cookies, such as from Google Analytics, to keep track of visitor statistics, for example. We do not use this information to create personal profiles. However, we use analytical cookies to measure, for example, which sections of our website you visit and how often you do so. With this data, we can improve our website. We do not need consent for this use.

'Persoonlijk': Cookies for a more personal and user-friendly website

In addition to functional and analytical cookies (as described under ‘Functional’), these cookies make the website more personal and user-friendly. We will present you with information on KVK products and services that are relevant for you. This concerns only our own cookies, not third-party privacy-sensitive cookies. When choosing ‘Personal’, we follow your behaviour on our website. This will allow us to show you items that meet your interests or profile. We can also show you relevant products and services that match the profile you have built up.

'De beste ervaring': Cookies for the best experience on this and other KVK websites

In addition to the functional and analytical cookies, as well as the cookies mentioned under ‘Personal’, we place third-party cookies and cookies that enable us to monitor your internet behaviour. Thanks to these cookies, you will get the most out of our website. For example, these cookies enable you to watch videos. We also inform you about KVK products and services that are relevant to you. Both we and third parties monitor your online behaviour and collect your personal data, such as your IP address or web pages you have visited. This information will also be stored on the server of the website provider or on the server used by Social media cookies allow you to connect to social networks and share content from our website on social media. Third parties, such as Google, can also perform an analysis or display a video and place cookies.

Google Analytics uses Google Analytics cookies. KVK has installed Google Analytics with privacy-friendly settings, according to the Dutch Data Protection Authority guideline ‘Handleiding privacyvriendelijk instellen van Google Analytics’. This means that the last digit of your IP address is masked, and datasharing with Google is disabled. We do not use other Google services in conjunction with Google Analytics.

The website is not responsible or liable for third parties’ use of cookies, such as the responsibilities of the websites to which the visitor can link or otherwise use, such as social media providers including YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn, Facebook, etc.
