- Cookies on royal-thai.nl
Around 5 June 2012 new regulations came into force with regard to the use of so-called “cookies” on web pages. These rules are included in Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act (Tw). The new regulations also relate to your privacy. Because we think your privacy is very important, we would like to inform you about this subject on this page.
Because the new legislation on cookies for all authorities is not yet fully clear how it will work in practice, royal-thai.nl will continue to monitor all developments closely and will do everything to continue to comply with the new cookie legislation.
- What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on a computer, telephone or tablet. The cookies are read by the browser (including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) when opening an internet page. The creator of a cookie determines what he places in the cookie concerned with text files.
As long as you do not enter personal data on the site you visit as a user, the cookie can not contain this information. There are direct and indirect cookies, also called first and third party cookies. Cookies are in principle not dangerous; they are not computer programs and can not be used to distribute computer viruses.
- Type of cookies
3.1 First party cookie
With a first-party (direct) cookie, the relevant website places a cookie with the user who opens the website. First-party cookies have different purposes. One of the purposes is, for example, to remember the login name of the user and to remember items of selected items in a shopping basket.
3.2 Third-party cookie
A third-party cookie ‘follows’ a user over a long period of time over various websites and is thus able to build up a so-called “profile” of a user. These cookies are often used for targeted online advertising. An advertising network then places a cookie on a user’s computer, telephone or tablet via a third-party site. This cookie can be read by the network on the various websites that are in the ad network.
Share with social media networks
Undoubtedly you will already have experience that companies place cookies on your computer, tablet or phone.
