A cookie is a small text file that a website stores on your computer or mobile device when you visit that website. The cookie is placed on your device by the website itself ("first party cookies") or by partners of the website ("third party cookies"). The cookie recognises your device through a unique identification number when you return to the website and it collects information on your online behaviour.
There are various types of cookies. We distinguish between the cookies on the basis of the purpose they serve: there are essential or strictly necessary cookies, and non-essential cookies (functional and analytical cookies).
The Belgian Law of 13 June on electronic communications contains a number of provisions on cookies and their use on websites. The law is a transposition of the EU e-Privacy Directive, which means that the cookie legislation could be differently implemented in other EU member states. OUTSPOT is located in Belgium and consequently complies with Belgian and EU legislation in respect of cookies.
When you turn off cookies this could affect how the website works. Some of the website’s functions could be inaccessible or only accessible to a limited degree. If you opt to switch off cookies, we are unable to guarantee easy and optimal website access.
