For the website nexuzhealth.com to work properly, we need to place a number of small files on your computer, called cookies. Most websites do this.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer when you visit web pages. They contain information linked to a web browser and the specific website. Cookies consist of two components: the name and the content. They are stored in a specific folder on your hard drive and given a unique ID and duration. If you return to a certain website, the cookie will make sure that page recognises the visitor and continues to build up the history.
What types of cookies are there?
Cookies can be categorised according to different elements:
(i) According to who creates or issues the cookies
- First-party cookies
These cookies are issued by a website viewed directly by the user. So, when a user lands on a website, that website creates a cookie that is then stored on the user’s computer. They are often created by a website to make the web page function better and to control the technical part of a site, such as language selection or remembering the products from the shopping basket in a web shop. The website visited creates and places “first-party cookies”.
- Third-party cookies
These cookies are created and placed on your computer by a (third) party other than the website you visited. Examples include social media such as Facebook or Twitter, but also Google Analytics. This is the most widely used system for measuring website visits. To clarify this, let’s say you visit a website and this website displays a YouTube video on one of its pages. In this case, a third party, i.e. YouTube, will place a cookie which is then stored on your computer. What happens here is that the owner of the website you are visiting inserts a piece of code and video that is provided by YouTube on that owner’s site. When the YouTube code runs in a browser or the video is loaded, YouTube can track the viewer and place data in cookies. As a result, the cookie is classified as a third-party cookie because it was created by a party other than the party behind the website you are visiting.
(ii) by cookie lifetime
- Temporary cookies
These are also referred to as session cookies. It is a file with a limited lifespan, i.e. one browser session. It will be deleted as soon as you close the browser.
- Permanent cookies
This file remains on your computer, tablet or smartphone until it is deleted.
(iii) Based on the purpose of the cookies
The same cookie can be used for different purposes;
- To make a website work properly (essential and functional cookies)
Essential and functional cookies are used to manage the content of a website. These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of this website. These cookies cannot be refused if you want to visit a website. They also ensure that a website remembers your preferences (such as your choice of language) so you can browse in all comfort.
- To analyse how you use a website (analytical cookies)
Analytical cookies help website owners understand how visitors use their website. This involves the transmission of pseudonymised data. This means that your personal data will be replaced by a code (example: AB123456). These cookies make it possible to compile statistics and analyse which pages of the website you are looking at, which services or products appears to interest you the most, etc. On this basis, we try to make your browsing experience more pleasant and to optimise the website.
- To display personal (advertising) messages (marketing cookies)
Marketing cookies are used to track visitors of websites. The aim is to display advertising that is relevant and interesting to the visitors in question on the basis of their preferences. Thanks to these marketing cookies, which are used by online advertising agencies such as Google (Adwords, YouTube, DoubleClick), Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn, companies can display targeted advertisements on other companies’ websites. In this way these companies try to offer you more relevant products and services.
What cookies do we use?
Below is a list of the cookies we use on our website. In each case, we mention the name of the partner who places and manages the cookie in question, as well as its purpose. A cookie may have a lifespan corresponding to the current browser session, but may also remain present after the session or become permanent, depending on how long the cookie is stored on your computer, tablet or smartphone.
