What is a cookie?
Cookies are small text files that are automatically offered by the website to your browser. The purpose of the cookies placed by Northern Knowledge is to collect and analyse certain data about the visit to this website. Think of the browser used, click behaviour, mouse movements, scroll activities, visit frequency, the pages visited and the duration of the ‘user session’. This data is then used to improve the various internet pages and to better adapt this website to suit user requirements. Cookies are also used to make targeted offers on third-party websites.
Please note: if you have set your browser so that it does not accept any cookies at all (including no functional cookies), some parts of the website may not work properly.
What are similar techniques?
Tags, beacons and pixels are synonyms. We use tags on the website to measure. In addition, tags are used for (re)marketing purposes to offer our visitors a more targeted range of products and services.
To keep things clear and transparent: from now on when cookies are discussed, the above-mentioned techniques are also referred to.
Which data is stored?
A cookie can only store a limited amount of data. Cookies are therefore often used for the storage of, for example, a unique number or technical data. Think of the browser used, click behaviour, mouse movements, scroll activities, the text entered, visit time, visit frequency, IP address, the visited pages and / or the duration of the ‘user session’. Cookies do not collect information such as a name, telephone number or e-mail address. Nevertheless, the data is often (indirectly) traceable to your computer (IP address); which is why the data will then be regarded as personal data.
