Cookie usage

Information about our use of cookies.
The website and the company SmartMed B.V. of Zeist, will be referred to as our Website and us.

Cookies and similar technologies are used to distinguish your usage preferences from those of other users of our Website. This helps us to provide you with a better user experience when you visit our Website and also allows us to optimise our Website.

Cookies and similar technologies do not allow for the systematic collection of data that could identify the users of our Website. They only help us to improve the functioning of our Website, to understand what interests our users and to measure how effective the content of our Website is.

Due to recent legislative changes, all Websites targeting certain parts of the European Union are required to obtain your consent for the use or storage of Cookies and similar technologies on your computers and mobile devices. This Cookie Policy gives you clear and comprehensive information about the Cookies we use and their purpose.

What's a Cookie?

A Cookie is a small text and number file that we store in your browser or on your computer's hard drive. This allows us to remember your preferences when using our Website. As soon as you visit our Website, you will be asked for permission to place the various Cookies that we use.

Types of Cookies

Cookies can be subdivided according to their origin, their function and their lifespan:
  • First-party cookies are cookies placed by a Website currently visited by the user (e.g. cookies placed by (EMAIL ADDRESS)). They are activated each time the user visits the Website that has placed that Cookie (e.g. Cookies placed by social media like Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics etc). Most non-functional cookies are permanent cookies. Session Cookies are Cookies that allow to simplify and link a user's actions during a browser session. A browser session begins when a user opens the browser window and ends when the user closes the browser window. Session Cookies are placed temporarily. As soon as you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. Most functional cookies are session cookies.
  • Third-party Cookies are Cookies that are placed by a domain name other than that of the Website visited by the user. If a user visits a Website and a third party places a cookie via that Website, then this is a third-party cookie (e.g. cookies placed by Google, Twitter and Facebook).
  • Functional Cookies are Cookies that ensure that the Website functions properly (e.g. Cookies for login 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. These have nothing to do with the purely technical support of the Website. Cookies used for statistical purposes allow you to track which pages of the Website you are visiting, where your computer is located, etc. Cookies with social purposes allow the user to share the content of the Website visited directly with others via social media. Targeting cookies allow you to build a profile based on your surfing behaviour so that the advertisements displayed are tailored to your interests. Cookies with commercial purposes keep track of how many and which advertisements were shown to a user. Non-functional Cookies can be first-party or third-party Cookies.
  • Persistent Cookies are Cookies that remain on the user's device for the duration defined in the Cookie. They are activated each time the user visits the Website that placed this Cookie (e.g. Cookies placed by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics, etc.). Most non-functional Cookies are permanent Cookies.
  • Session Cookies are Cookies that allow a user to simplify and link a user's actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when a user opens the browser screen and ends when the user closes the browser screen. Session Cookies are placed temporarily. As soon as you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted. Most functional Cookies are session cookies.
