InterSearch collects a series of general data and information when you visit the website www.intersearch.org (hereafter the “Website”). This general data and information is collected by cookies and will at least partly consist of personal data.

By means of this dedicated Cookie Statement, we want to fully inform you, as a visitor, about the use of cookies on the Website. In this Cookie Statement, you can find a list of all cookies we use on the Website, with a description of their specific purposes and technical parameters (such as the duration they are placed on your device).

In addition to this Cookie Statement, InterSearch also provides a Privacy Statement, of which this Cookie Statement forms an integral part, and which is available here. In this Privacy Statement, we set out (1) which personal data we can collect by the use of cookies, (2) the legal bases for our use of cookies, and (3) the general purposes of our use of cookies. For the aforementioned information, and other information concerning the collection of your personal data in general and your rights in that regard, please refer to this Privacy Statement.

1.   What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by the internet browser on the visitors’ computer or mobile device when visiting a website.

By the use of cookies, InterSearch can provide you with a secure and proper functioning Website.  Cookies also allow us to provide you with more user-friendly features that could not be provided without cookies. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our Website can be optimized with the visitor in mind. Cookies allow us to recognize our Website visitors. The purpose of this recognition is to increase the security, appeal and ease of use of the Website. For example, we use cookies that remember your cookie preferences for subsequent visits.

2. Who do these cookies belong to?

All cookies have an owner that tells you who the cookie belongs to. The owner of a cookie is the controller of the domain name specified in the cookie. Cookies are uniquely assigned to you and your device and can be read only by the owner of the cookie.  Cookies used on this Website can be placed by us (“first party cookies”) or by a third party (“third party cookies”).

  • First party cookies are cookies placed by and on the website you are currently visiting (in this case cookies placed by intersearch.org).

 

  • Third party cookies are cookies placed by another website than the one you are currently visiting. (i.e. cookies placed by Google, LinkedIn, Facebook, …).

3. For how long are these cookies being stored on your device?

Cookies can be placed temporarily (“session cookies”) or permanently (“persistent cookies”).

  • Session cookies are temporarily stored on your computer or mobile device. As soon as you close your internet browser, these cookies are automatically deleted.

 

Persistent cookies remain on your computer or mobile device, even after you close your internet browser. Persistent cookies make it possible to recognise you during a subsequent visit to the Website. They remain on your device until their expiry date is reached, a new version of the cookie is installed, or you manually delete them.

4. Which categories of cookies does InterSearch use on the Website and how can I accept or reject their use?

InterSearch makes use of the following categories of cookies on the Website:

  • Necessary cookies are (i) cookies that are for purely technical reasons strictly necessary to make your use of the Website possible, and (ii) cookies that are strictly necessary to provide the visitor with a service that has been explicitly requested by this visitor (such as registering your cookie preferences for subsequent visits). These cookies are essential to enable you to navigate the Website and make use of the available features.
  • Analytical cookies are cookies that collect information about how visitors use the Website, for instance which pages they view most often. We use this information for analytical purposes, to improve the Website and to help us investigating problems raised by visitors.

 

The use of necessary cookies does not depend on your consent as a visitor. Therefore, you cannot refuse their use.

Before we place any cookies on your device that fall under the other categories, we will ask for your prior consent via our cookie banner, as specified hereafter. You can give your consent for these cookies by clicking on the “I consent” button. You also have the option to give your consent or not separately for each category of cookies by clicking the ‘Privacy Settings’ link. You can then make your choice and close the Privacy Settings menu again, and your preferences will be saved automatically. You can also refuse the use of these cookies by clicking on the “I reject” button.
