What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that is installed on the hard disk of your computer when you visit a website. A cookie stores data about your surfing preferences. For example, a cookie remembers the pages you visited before, or indicates that you got to a website via a link from a certain advertising campaign. You can expect cookies on CNV websites to make your visit easier.
We only place cookies with your permission, and do this to help you online to the best of our ability. You can only use our website after accepting cookies. Placing cookies allows us to monitor visitor behaviour, which helps us to optimize the website and continuously improve the user experience. It also helps to recognize visitors so that we can present them relevant content.
- For optimizing the user experience by providing website statistics and error detection.
- For offering features such as sharing messages through social media and showing YouTube videos.
- For showing targeted (CNV) advertisements and relevant information.
Analytical cookies track how visitors use the website. They allow us, for example, to track the website from where visitors found us, what pages are viewed by them and for how long, which browser and display resolution they set, and they give us insight into demographic data. We use this information to analyse website usage, generate website statistics and determine, for example, what causes website errors. This information is used to better identify our website visitors (target group and market analysis), to tailor the website to our target group, to improve website navigation, troubleshoot, and optimize the website user experience. Apart from user information, Google Analytics cookies also store the visitor IP address. This information is used for statistics and data reports for CNV Internationaal website administrators. Google supplies these data to third parties when there is a legal obligation to do so, or when third parties process these data on behalf of Google. Google does not link your IP address to other data it has.
Social media, YouTube and Google Maps
Additionally, we use YouTube, Slideshare and Vimeo for showing videos and maps on the website. Again, this may result in Google placing cookies on your computer.

These cookies also track which link/banner/advertisement was clicked for visitors to arrive at our website, and what activities were developed on the website. Some cookies are used to provide targeted advertisements and offers to our visitors, including on third party websites.
Third parties, also outside of the EU
As described above, a major part of the cookies are placed and read out by third parties that supply us with services. This refers to Google and other analytics providers, social media suppliers and advertisement networks. These cookies enable them to supply their services for our goals described above. They may also use the data collected to their own ends, such as tracking the usage of their services and products, and occasionally to create an interest profile based on which they can offer targeted advertising to you. Our insight into this is limited; please refer to the cookie and privacy policies of the appropriate parties. The policy is for these parties to handle data with care. Your privacy is ensured. These parties are subject to a legal regime that monitors compliance with laws and regulations.
A number of these third parties have their headquarters or another office in the USA or elsewhere outside of the European Economic Area. However, all of them are based in countries covered by European agreements in the framework of the Safe Harbour and Privacy Shield.
