1.1 Google Analytics (analytical cookies)
Through our Website, a cookie is placed from the company Google, as part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to keep track of and to get reports on how visitors use the website. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or insofar as third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this.
The information that Google collects is anonymized as much as possible. Your IP address is emphatically not given. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google claims to adhere to the Safe Harbor principles and is affiliated with the Safe Harbor program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.

- Functional and technical cookies (necessary cookies)
Technical cookies are cookies that are necessary for the evanwijk.ro website to function, to create an account, to be able to log in and to detect fraud with your account. Functional cookies remember your preferences. At E van Wijk, this concerns, among other things, personal data entered on the personal profile page and remain logged in during a session.
1.2.1 Use of session cookies
Many of the cookies E van Wijk uses are session cookies. Using a session, we store status data and preferences during a particular session. We can therefore adapt our service as much as possible to the surfing behavior of our visitors and increase the ease of use of the website during the session. These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.
Please note: we use all these cookies for proper functionality of the website and guarantee increased ease of use.
1.2.2 Use of permanent cookies
With the help of a permanent cookie we recognize you when you visit our website again. The website can therefore be specially set to your preferences. Even if you have given permission for the placement of cookies, we can remember this by means of a cookie (for example a cookie tool). This means that you do not have to repeat your preferences every time, which saves you time and allows you to use our website more pleasantly. You can delete permanent cookies via the settings of your browser.

2.1 Tracking cookies to better tailor advertisements to your preferences
With your permission, other parties place “tracking cookies” on your equipment to better tailor advertisements to your preferences. They use these cookies to keep track of which pages you visit outside their network, in order to build a profile of your online surfing behaviour. This profile is partly built on the basis of comparable information that they receive from your visit to other websites in their network. This profile is not linked to your name, address, e-mail address and the like, as known to us, but only serves to match advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant to you as possible.
2.2 Social Media
Buttons are included on our website to promote (“like”) or share (“tweet”) web pages on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These buttons work by means of pieces of code that come from Facebook or Twitter itself. Cookies are placed through this code. We have no influence on that. Read the privacy statement of Facebook or Twitter (which can change regularly) to read what they do with your (personal) data that they process via these cookies.
The information they collect is anonymized as much as possible. The information is transferred to and stored by Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn on servers in the United States. LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+ adhere to the Safe Harbor principles and are affiliated with the Safe Harbor program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.
