Your privacy en our cookies

This section explains how Frank Pouwer handles personal data and which cookies are placed by ourselves and third parties.

Privacy

We handle registered data such as e-mail addresses and names with care. We do not sell e-mail addresses or other data and do not hand over any information. The purpose of registering is to respond to the site and to be able to present yourself. However, in case we intend to send you commercial messages in the future, this will of course be opt-in and you will not be approached unsolicited. We also handle data sent to us using contact forms or by e-mail with care. These personal details will be handled confidentially.

Cookies

In order to be able to show our website to you, we use cookies. A cookie is a small file that is sent together with pages of this website and stored by the browser on your computer’s hard drive.

We place some cookies that are necessary for the proper functioning of the site. For example, being logged in and making it possible to respond.

The use of cookies is very important to make our website run properly, but also cookies of which you do not immediately see the effect (such as Google Analytics), are very important. Without anonymous input from visitors, we do not have a clear picture of the use of the website and how we can improve it. The advertising-cookie that is placed ensures, by means of a so-called ‘frequency cap’, that you are not continuously targeted by the same advertisement.

Tracking cookies, which are placed for analytical purposes or advertisements, are so-called ‘third party cookies’. These cookies are not placed by ourselves, but by third parties. For this reason, we cannot take any responsibility for them.

You do not want cookies to be installed? Then you can easily disable cookies via your browser. You can find out how to do this using this article on wikiHow.

Overview of cookies used

Below is described which cookies we place ourselves and which third-party cookies are used.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics to collect anonymised data on surfing behaviour. This allows us to see how visitors like you use our website. We use these data to make informed decisions about the layout of our website. We also use this information to optimize the functioning of the website. The information obtained is stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google also provides this information to advertisers in order to provide insight into the effectiveness of their campaigns. Google is allowed to provide the data to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or to the extent that these third parties process the data on behalf of Google. We do not have any influence on this. However, we have not authorized Google to use the analytical data obtained for other Google services. Please read Google’s privacy policy for more information, as well as the specific privacy policy of Google Analytics.

You do not want your click pattern to be tracked? In that case you can download a browser plugin from Google’s website to prevent this. This option applies to all websites you visit, not just ours. You can download the browser plugin here.

Functional cookies

Key features

These are cookies that are strictly necessary for the proper functioning of the website. Certain features cannot be used without these cookies. For instance, cookies are used on our website to log in and to be able to respond. Cookies are also used to remember settings and preferences.

Sociale knoppen

The site includes buttons to promote or share pages on Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus and LinkedIn. These buttons are bits of code from the social media itself and make use of a cookie. This cookie remembers that you are logged in so that you do not have to log in every time you want to share something on Twitter or Facebook. To see what they do with personal data that they receive with this code, you can view the privacy statements of Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and LinkedIn (which are subject to regular changes).

Embedded content

Blog articles may use content hosted by other sites and made accessible on our website. For example Slideshare presentations, YouTube videos and Storify. Similar to the social buttons, these tags often make use of cookies. You can find out what they do with these cookies and personal data in the privacy policy of the respective company. This is beyond our control.
