What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files placed on your computer, smartphone, tablet, digital TV box, or smart TV. These files contain information, often a unique identification number, that uniquely identifies your browser or device. This allows us to learn more about you and your use of our websites. Through your cookie settings, you can determine how we may use this information.
To make sure our websites work properly ("functional cookies").
To personalise our websites (“personalisation cookies”).
To analyse, promote, and improve our own services and products ("marketing cookies").
To integrate with social media platforms ("social media cookies").
You can find more details about each purpose below.
To make sure our websites and applications work properly ("Functional Cookies")
Functional cookies are used to make the websites work. Without these cookies, our websites cannot function properly. Therefore, you cannot refuse or disable them. They include cookies that:
Help remember your preferences, such as language or region.
Ensure optimal image, video, and screen display on your device.
Allow us to detect and prevent abuse and fraud.
Are technically necessary for delivering content.
Enable us to identify bugs or other issues on the websites and in the apps.
To personalise our websites (“personalization cookies”)
We use these cookies to map individual surfing and usage behaviour on our websites and to personalise the websites or our communication with you based on this.
The purpose of these cookies is to provide every visitor and user with information that is as relevant to him or her as possible. That is why we try to adapt the content of our websites as much as possible to each visitor or user. We do this by recommending interesting articles, videos or topics to you, based on what you have previously read or viewed. Our direct marketing communications, such as newsletters, are also personalised in this manner.
To Analyze, promote, and improve our own services and products ("Marketing Cookies")
These cookies help us understand the general use of our websites. Specifically, we use them to determine which parts of the websites are the most interesting to users. We achieve this by measuring how many people visit a website and which pages, items, or sections are viewed mostly.
The information we gather is used to create statistics. These statistics provide insight into how often specific web pages are visited and where visitors and users generally spend the most time. Based on that information, we can make the structure, navigation, and content of the websites as user-friendly as possible.
These cookies also enable us to use your browsing behaviour on our websites for our marketing purposes. This allows us to display ads for our products and services on other websites and apps.
This category also includes cookies used to enhance our websites and services (e.g., cookies that collect user feedback or track where users drop off in a registration flow).
To integrate with social media platforms ("Social Media Cookies")
When we integrate content from Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter into our websites or apps, these platforms place cookies to gather information about your browsing behaviour. Additionally, you can share articles and videos you view on our websites or in our apps through social media using "share buttons." The operation of these buttons relies on cookies from the respective social media networks to recognize you when you wish to share an article or video.
If you do not allow these cookies, we will not display this content. More information about all this can be found in the privacy and cookie policies of these companies.
How can I manage my cookie preferences?
When you first visit a DPG Media website, we will ask you to specify the purposes for which you allow our websites to place cookies. You can make a different choice for each device. For example, if you want to accept all cookies only on your computer and limit cookies on your tablet, we will accommodate that. Your choice immediately applies to all DPG Media websites.
You can always change your choice afterward. On our websites, you will find a link to your cookie settings at the bottom of the page, where you can make adjustments. If you have multiple devices, you will need to indicate your choice separately for each device.
Why can't I refuse all cookies?
Functional cookies will always be placed because they are necessary for the website to work. You can refuse all other cookies.
How long are cookies stored?
The duration for which a cookie is stored depends per cookie. To clarify, there are two types of cookies:
Temporary cookies ("session cookies"): these are temporary cookies that are deleted as soon as you close your browser.
Persistent cookies ("persistent cookies"): these cookies are stored on your device until their retention period expires or until you actively delete them from your device.
Below, you can find a list of all cookies and their respective storage durations.
