1. General
On 5 June 2012, new regulations came into force with regard to the use of so-called ‘cookies’ on web pages. These rules have been incorporated into Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act (TA). The new regulations also concern your privacy, and of course your privacy is vital to us. On this page you will find more information about these new regulations and how we use cookies. Despite the ‘cookie law’ being in force since 5 June, it is not yet entirely clear for parties involved how exactly the new regulations will work in practice. We will closely monitor developments and take the necessary steps as required to comply with the new regulations. We use cookies to improve your ease of use on our website. Below you will find further explanation about cookies, what they are used for and how you can opt out of cookies, if you wish.
