1. Cookies

Cookies are small data or text files that are stored on your local computer by websites and applications. Such cookies can have different purposes: there are technical cookies (for example for remembering language preferences), session cookies (temporary cookies that expire when the web browser is closed) and tracking cookies (cookies which track and store your behaviour on the internet in order to provide you with a better user experience).

The Belgian Electronic Communications Act of 13 June 2005 contains some provisions on cookies and their use on websites. The law is a transposition of the European e-Privacy Directive, which means that the cookie legislation can be implemented differently in other European member states.

PLASTIFLEX is an entity with a main establishment in the EU and therefore follows European legislation on cookies
