Summary

We are Privacy Company from The Hague, Netherlands. We can be reached via info@privacycompany.eu. You can call us via 070-8209690, but you can also send mail to Privacy Company B.V., PO Box 95315, 2509 CH The Hague.

This statement is about our cookies and similar technologies. The cookies we use are analytical cookies with a limited intrusion on the privacy of our website visitors. We use these cookies to show video content as well as analyse and improve the use of the website. Because of this limited intrusion into your privacy, we are not obliged to ask for your permission via a cookie notification.

To ensure that cookies have a limited intrusion into your privacy, we have taken several protective measures. An example of this would be the removal of the last two octets of the IP address when analysing the use of our website.

Cookies are only stored for a limited period. Often this is limited to the duration of the session.

For more information about the type of cookies, the specific functions they perform, the parties that place these cookies, and the retention periods, please read the full cookie statement.

Cookies used

In order to inform you about the cookies we use, we give you an overview of the different cookies and the function these cookies perform.

Video content

To give you an idea of what our software looks like, we have made several short videos. Thes videos can be seen via an embedded link on several parts of the website. In order to play these videos, we use Vimeo. The Vimeo player places a first-party session cookie which is necessary for the playback of the video. This session cookie is only needed for video playback and therefore expires automatically after one day. Vimeo cannot view our website and does not place any other (tracking) cookies of itself or third parties.

Analysing the website

To analyse and improve the use of our website as well as the ways in which our visitors visit and find our website, we place analytical cookies on your device. We use an application called Matomo to do so. To our knowledge, this is the most privacy friendly analysis tool currently available. The software creates visitor statistics based on these cookies. We do not share these statistics with third parties. Because the software only runs on our own web server, and does not connect to Matomo's servers, Matomo cannot watch your visit to our website.

What exactly happens during the website analysis?

When you visit our website for the first time, the software will see your IP address. Your IP address will then be marked ('visitor A1' for example) so that the IP address can still be recognised when visiting a next page or during a subsequent visit. We will then anonymise the IP address itself. After doing so, you can no longer be traced back to the IP address. This is a measure that ensures that your privacy is protected well, but still allows us to 'count' unique visitors.

By means of the website analysis, we collect the following data, linked to the anonymised IP address (/our characteristic):

  • City & country (of the IP address),
  • Browser type (Firefox, Chrome, Explorere, Safari etc),
  • Operating system (Microsoft, Apple, Android, etc.)
  • The presence of plugins (such as Acrobat or Flash Player),
  • Pages visited, how long the visit lasted and when they were visited.
  • Used links to access our website ('refferrers').
  • Used links on our website that refer to external websites.
  • Downloaded files.
  • Other information, such as screen resolution and website speed, in order to be able to show the website properly on both mobile phones and laptops and to be able to optimise the website if it does not work fast enough.

Privacy measures

With regard to the website analysis by means of Matomo, we have taken the following measures:
Before we have the IP addresses saved in the software, we have the last two octets of each IP address deleted (so we only see the following: 192.168.xxx.xxx). We remove one octet more from the IP address than, for example, Google Analytics does. This way, the IP-address can be considered anonymous.

Because the impact of our analytical cookies on our website on your privacy is very limited, you do not have to give permission for this.

Do Not Track

If you do not want us to place cookies on your device, we recommend that you enable the Do Not Track feature in your browser. When enabled, our software will not place cookies. For more information about Do Not Track and how to turn it on in your browser, see the website of: All About Do Not Track. We are aware that the Do Not Track-functionality is only a request to the receiving website and not an obligation. Whether the receiving website complies to that signal is not a given. We will comply with any Do Not Track request. Nonetheless,if you want to make sure that cookies are blocked, you can also configure this via your browser settings.

Change of Cookie Statement

We may change our cookie statement. If so, we will announce this change on our website. If we want to substantially change the purposes of the processing, and the processing is based on your consent, we will ask for consent for those new purposes.
