Cookies for website statics

Cookies for advertisements

These are doubleclick cookies and have the following purpose:

  • To serve out the advertisement (on time, place, browser, etc).
  • To prevent irritation. To take account of the frequency with which an advertisement is shown, sometimes called frequency/family cap.
  • To make reports for the advertisers (unique area).

These doubleclick cookies are known as third party cookies.

We use Tripadvisor, Facebook, Youtube, Twitter and other social media on our site. We find that it is practical and useful to place reviews and give the option to write reviews on e.g. Tripadvisor or Facebook on our sites. In turn we analyse the click behaviour of these external parties.

At the moment the precise implementation of the Telecom Act is still very unclear. The Netherlands Public Broadcasting (Nederlandse Publieke Omroep, NPO) is still looking into how it intends to actually implement this act.
