What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer, tablet or mobile phone via a website of Jaarbeurs and are read when you use our websites. An explanation of the various types of cookies used by Jaarbeurs is provided below.
Jaarbeurs uses a number of functional cookies. They allow us to store data for you that enhance your experience of our websites. The functional cookies that we place via our various websites have the following purposes, among others:
- to remember your preferences, such as the language you may have chosen; or
- to allow access registration.
We use analytical cookies to enable us to adjust our websites to the wishes and interests of the visitors.
Jaarbeurs uses Google Analytics of Google Inc. (“Google”). Via Google Analytics we obtain information on the manner in which our website is used. The information consists of user statistics, such as the number of different visitors, the pages frequently visited and the average duration of a visit. We do so on the basis of the “Privacy-Friendly Way to Use Google Analytics” handbook of the Dutch Data Protection Authority. This means that we have instructed Google to remove the last three digits of your IP address (so that it is difficult to trace the IP address to a specific visitor) and we have disabled Google’s standard data sharing settings.
Jaarbeurs has furthermore entered into a data processing agreement with Google. We do not use other Google services in combination with the Google Analytics cookies. The limited information that is shared with Google, when Google Analytics is used, is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the USA. In order to ensure that the personal data processed by Google maintains the same equivalent level of protection, we take the necessary and appropriate measures.
