Where do Cookies come from?
Based on the origin of Cookies, we make a distinction between first-party and third-party Cookies.
are direct Cookies that we manage ourselves. They are specific to the Site or the EOS Contentia online service such as the debtor or partner portal. It is the online service that creates and places the Cookies in order to function properly, for example.
Third party Cookies
Third party Cookies
are Cookies that are managed or placed by a third party and not by ourselves. This happens during your visit or use of a EOS Contentia online service. Third party Cookies therefore ensure that certain data is sent to third parties through your visit or use of an online service. These are, for example, social media Cookies or Cookies from advertisers, which ensure that you get to see advertisements. Although we do not manage or place these Cookies ourselves, we do our utmost to ensure that the placement of these Cookies by third parties via our platforms is as controlled as possible.

These Cookies are indispensable for visiting our websites and using certain parts of the websites. For instance, they allow you to navigate between the different parts of the website, and fill in forms.
We use these Cookies to guarantee the following benefits, among others:
- Remember information that you enter or indicate on the various pages. This way, you do not always have to fill in or indicate all your data or preferences again.
- Save settings for an optimal video display, such as the desired buffer size and the resolution data of your screen.
- Read out your browser settings for an optimal display of our website on your screen.

- Load the website evenly, so that it remains accessible at all times.
No permission is required for the use of these Cookies and they cannot be disabled.
Functional Cookies are Cookies that make it easier for our websites to work, make them more pleasant for visitors, and ensure that you have a more personalized browsing experience. For example, these Cookies can remember your language choice and customer segment.
We use performance Cookies to obtain information about visitors’ use of our websites, in order to improve the content of our websites, adapt them to the wishes of visitors, and make them more user-friendly. For instance, there is a Cookie that counts the number of unique visitors, and a Cookie that keeps track of the most popular pages.
Performance Cookies are also called statistical Cookies. They collect general information about how our online services are used. We may make statistical analyses of the information we obtain in this way. How did you end up on our webpage? Which (mobile) application do you spend most of your time on? Thanks to statistical results we can make the structure, navigation and content of our online services as user-friendly as possible. We also use this data to report on EOS Contentia performance or in the context of surveys in which we participate.
Advertisement Cookies track your browsing behavior on our websites to build your user profile. This profile is then used to show you advertisements that match your personal interests.
Advertisement Cookies can only collect data that tells you something about your use of the website. Personal identification data such as your name or address, which you have entered in your EOS Contentia profile, for example, will not be used for this purpose. We will always ask for your permission to display customized ads on our online services. We do this through the Cookie settings that appear on your screen when you use our online services. You can also revoke your consent using the same settings at any time.
For your understanding, even if you have not given your consent, you will still see or hear advertisements on our online services. This advertising will then only be less relevant, because it will not be adapted to your likely interests. So we leave it up to you to choose whether or not to receive tailored advertisements.
Recommendation Cookies - just like advertising Cookies - follow your browsing behavior to create your user profile. That profile is then used to give you an online experience that matches your interests. These Cookies tell us something about your use of our online services so that we can make more targeted recommendations and suggestions. Furthermore, these Cookies ensure that the information you have already viewed do not appear as suggestions again. In this way, we hope to bring you into contact with new information that you might find interesting and that you might not have thought of right away.

This may be content stored with another party but displayed on, in or via our online services. In addition, EOS Contentia content can be shared by buttons on social networking sites on our online services. Examples of these social media are Facebook, Google+, YouTube, LinkedIn and Twitter. These third parties may place Cookies on our online services in order to collect data. We ourselves have no influence on what those social media do with their Cookies. For more information about these Cookies, we would like to refer you to the statements that these third parties provide on their own websites.
