Scope of application

This website and the associated cookies are managed by Powernaut with registered office at Hubert Frère-Orbanlaan 318, 9000 Gent, Belgium and CBE number 1004.987.997. We act as a data controller when we process the personal data of the users of our online environment by means of cookies.

We comply with applicable data protection regulations, such as the General Data Protection Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR) and national data protection laws. These regulations relate to the protection of your personal data and grant you rights with regard to those personal data.

The purpose of this policy is to indicate what personal data we collect through cookies and how we use your data after you have visited our website via a desktop computer, tablet, smartphone or other medium on which the cookies are installed.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that contain small pieces of information and store information, such as your language preference, when you visit our website. These cookies are stored on your computer, tablet or smartphone when you visit our website. Cookies may contain personal identifying data, but this is not always the case.

When you revisit the website at a later time, this cookie will send information to the website so that the website recognises your browser and can remember your language preference, for example. Some cookies make it possible to enable certain functions on our website or to measure how website visitors use our website so that we can use this information to optimise the website.

Cookies often have an expiration date with the result that they are automatically deleted after a certain time. Some cookies are deleted immediately after closing the browser, such as session cookies, while others remain on your device for a longer period of time.

What types of cookies do we use and why?

Strictly necessary / essential and functional cookies

Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to navigate on our website and make use of its functions. Functional cookies remember the choices you have made, such as the country from which you are visiting the website, language choice and search parameters. Without these cookies, requested services such as remembering your login details or the items in a shopping cart cannot be provided. These cookies allow us to offer you a more enjoyable experience that better suits your choices. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.

We can install these cookies without asking your consent.

Targeting cookies or advertising cookies

These cookies collect information about your browsing habits to better tailor advertisements to your preferences. They are also used to limit the number of times you see a particular ad and to measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. These cookies are usually placed by networks of third party advertisers. They remember the websites you visit and that information is shared with other parties such as advertisers. For example, we use external companies to show you more targeted ads when you visit other websites. You can consult these companies in the table below.

These cookies are only installed on your device after you have given your consent.
