Cookie Policy

1/ What are cookies?

A “cookie” is a small text and number file that is sent by the GS COM GCV server or a third party and placed on the hard drive of your computer. The information stored on these cookies can only be read by us or that third party and only for the duration of the visit to the websites. In this way we can remember your preferences when using our websites.

2/ Why do we use cookies?

Our websites use cookies and similar technologies to distinguish your usage preferences from those of other users on our websites. This helps us to provide you with a better user experience when you visit our websites and also allows us to optimize our websites. For example, we also use JavaScript. In combination with cookies and (web) beacons we can, among other things, remember which products you looked at, which articles you read, what is in your shopping cart or can we view you earlier or show related products and articles.

As a result of recent legislative changes, all websites aimed at certain parts of the European Union are required to request your permission for the use or storage of cookies and similar technologies on your computers or mobile devices. This cookie policy gives you clear and complete information about the cookies we use and their purpose.

3/ Types of cookies:

Although there are different types of cookies, distinguished in terms of functionality, origin or storage period, the legislation mainly distinguishes between functional or technically necessary cookies on the one hand and all other cookies on the other.

Our website uses only the following cookies:

First-party cookies are cookies that are placed by us via one of our websites that is currently being visited by the user.

Third-party cookies are cookies that are placed by a domain name other than that of our website (s) that is visited (t) / (en) by the user. If a user visits one of our websites and a third party places a cookie through that website, then this is a third-party cookie (e.g., cookies placed by Google, Twitter and Facebook).
For the cookies that the third parties place and the data they collect with them, we refer to the statements that these parties provide on their own websites. Please note: we do not exert any influence on the content of these statements, nor on the content of the cookies of these third parties. We encourage you to consult the privacy and cookie statements below on a regular basis:

Facebook

Google+ / YouTube

LinkedIn

Twitter

Instagram

Functional cookies are cookies that ensure that our websites function properly (e.g., cookies for log-in or registration, language preferences, shopping baskets, etc.). Functional cookies are logically first party cookies.

Non-functional cookies are cookies that can be placed for statistical, social, targeting and commercial purposes. They have nothing to do with the purely technical support of our websites. Non-functional cookies can be first-party or third-party cookies.

Types of non-functional cookies

Cookies with statistical purposes allow you to check which pages of our websites you visit, where your computer is located, etc. (eg Cookies placed by Google and Hotjar)

Cookies with social purposes enable the user to share the content of the website visited via social media directly with others. These cookies are placed by the social media websites themselves. When you click on a social media button on our websites, a social media cookie is placed. The social media channel can recognize your IP address when you want to share a page from our websites.

Cookies with targeting purposes allow you to build up a profile based on your surfing behavior so that the displayed advertisements are tailored to your interests. There are advertising cookies on our websites and we also place advertising cookies on third party websites. The information from all advertising cookies can be combined with each other to enable you to make the most relevant offers on the basis of your online surfing, searching and buying behavior.

Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements were shown to a user.

Permanent cookies: These cookies remain on the user’s device for the duration determined in the cookie.

They are activated each time the user visits one of our websites that has placed this cookie (e.g., cookies placed by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics etc). Most non-functional cookies are permanent cookies with a certain retention time that is longer than the browser session.

Session cookies: These cookies allow to simplify the actions of a user and to link to each other during a browser session. A browser session begins when a user opens the browser window and ends when the user closes the browser screen. Session cookies are temporarily placed. As soon as you close your browser, all session cookies will be deleted.

4/ Your permission:

On your first visit to our websites you will be asked to accept our different types of cookies. You can accept our cookies in two ways: click on the ‘Accept’ button or simply surf the web on our websites.

You block cookies by activating the browser setting that allows you to refuse the placing of cookies. However, if you use your browser settings to block those cookies, you may not have access to (certain parts of) our websites. Read this cookie policy carefully for more information.

If you wish to withdraw your consent, you must delete your cookies by your browser settings. For further information about the removal or blocking of cookies, you can visit the following website: http://www.aboutcookies.org.
