Cookie legislation

What does the Cookie legislation entail?
The cookie legislation has been in force since 5 June 2012. This law describes that visitors to websites must be properly informed about the placing of cookies (these are small text files with information about your visit, which are stored on your computer). Companies are also obliged to explain for what purpose cookies are placed. The Independent Post and Telecommunications Authority (OPTA) supervises compliance with the Cookie legislation.

Cookies are safe
First of all, it is important to know that cookies do not damage your computer and personal data. They only aim to increase the user-friendliness for visitors (for example: remembering a product placed in a shopping cart or viewing anonymous click behaviour to improve the website).

What does Libéma use cookies for?
Libéma uses cookies to improve the experience of the visitor to the website and to serve the user. There are two purposes for which Libéma uses cookies:

  1. Google Analytics:during your visit a cookie is placed in order to register your visit anonymously.
    Libéma thus acquires statistics in order to analyse the use of the website. The figures are used to look at adjustments for the purpose of improving ease of use and, for example, to give popular pages a more prominent place. The objective of this is to make your experiences as a user as pleasant as possible.
  2. Remarketing: The purpose of placing cookies for relationship marketing is to remind you a number of times with banners about our products and/or offers when you visit other websites. This happens in places that Google makes available.

If you object to the use of cookies, you can keep your computer free of these by changing some settings. Cookies can be:

  1. Manually uninstalled
  2. Automatically uninstalled
  3. Rejected

Uninstalling cookies manually: uninstall the cookies yourself at any time.
