In that regard, DUSE Magazine ensures that the impact on your privacy is kept to a minimum. If you object to your data being processed, you can object.

4. Cookies

4.1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are saved on your computer when you visit web pages. They contain information linked to a web browser and the specific website. They are saved in a specific folder on your hard drive. If you return to a specific website, this page can recognize the visitor by means of the cookie and further elaborate the history.

Cookies are used to increase visitor-friendliness: by identifying visitors with a cookie, they do not always have to enter the same data such as login information or screen settings every time you visit the website.

4.2. Which kind of cookies exist?

Often a distinction is made between two large groups of cookies:

  • First party cookies: these cookies are created by a website to have the web page function better. They regulate the technical part of a site, such as language choice or remembering the products in the shopping basket in an online store. The visited website creates and places first party cookies.
  • Third party cookies: these cookies are created and placed on your computer by another (third) party than the website you visit. They remember the behavior of a surfer. Examples are social media such as Facebook or Twitter, but Google Analytics as well. This is the system used most to measure website visits.

Cookies required for the correct functioning of the site do not require permission. All other cookies do.

4.3. Which cookies do we use?

We will only use first party cookies to help improve your user experience on the Site. We do this by recording specific information about the user such as the language chosen, the pages visited and the duration of the visits.

The Site also uses third party cookies such as cookies from Google Analytics.

Google Analytics is a free service by Google to collect statistics of websites and to represent them in detail. The website administrator thus has a clear view on visitor flows, traffic flows and page displays. This way it is possible to adapt parts of a website or complete websites to the behavior and interests of the visitors.

We will only use other third party cookies (such as targeting cookies by Facebook), after receiving your consent (through an opt-in or through the consent given in your web browser).
