3.2 Cookies for the improvement of the operation and content of the Mediahuis Domains

We continuously assess which parts of the Mediahuis Domain are the most interesting and keep an eye on everything to make sure it works optimally. This is not only interesting for us, but also for you. Thanks to this inside information, we can improve the structure, navigation and content of each Mediahuis Domain and test new versions.

Examples hereof are Cookies which:

    • register the general use of the websites and apps (e.g. number of visitors, duration, sequence of visited pages),
    • detect error notification,
    • test designs for a better user experience (A/B tests).

If you consent to the use of Cookies for “Information storage and access” and “Ad selection, delivery, reporting”, we will be able to track the number of unique users of our websites and apps. You can change these preferences at any time via your privacy preferences.

3.3 Cookies for Recommended Content

These Cookies enable us to recommend relevant content that you have not read yet, in addition to our news and search offer. For this purpose, we take into account your readership and the popularity of the content with other (Registered or Not-Registered) Users.

Examples of these Cookies are:

    • Recommend articles on the home page, in the details of an article or within separate sections,
    • Suggest a next video,
    • Adapting the content of our newsletters to your interests.

We can only provide Recommended Content if you consent to the use of Cookies for “Information storage and access” and “Personalisation”. You can change these preferences at any time via your privacy preferences .

The table below shows the Cookies we use for this purpose.

3.4 Cookies for advertisements

We use this type of Cookie to show you advertisements on our websites and apps.

These advertisements are placed by us and/or third parties and are a necessary source of income to finance our editorial and digital platforms.

Some advertisements only take into account the content and position on the website (e.g. advertisements about sports equipment within the sports section). With Targeted Advertisements, we or advertisers may, based on your Clicking Behaviour and Registered Data, target a message specifically to certain audiences (e.g., “sports fans from Antwerp”).

These Cookies make it possible to do this:

    • We keep track of which adverts you have seen to prevent that you always see the same adverts,
    • We verify how many visitors click on the advert and thus we are able to share its usefulness with the advertiser,
    • We pass on information on your Clicking Behaviour to other websites for them to show you Targeted Advertisements,
    • Third parties can show you Targeted Advertisements on our Mediahuis Domains,
    • We can show you Targeted Advertisements about our offer on other websites,
    • Make offers about products and services more specific,
    • Recognise your interests at the different Mediahuis Domains.

Mediahuis works together with advertising agency Ads & Data NV (Harensesteenweg 226, 1800 Vilvoorde, KBO 0809.309.701) to make advertising as relevant as possible. To this end, Ads & Data and its advertising partners place Cookies to create an advertising profile about you and to display Targeted Advertisements on Mediahuis Domains.

Do you visit a Mediahuis Domain like www.nieuwsblad.be? Then Ads & Data assigns your Device a random identification number and collects the Clicking Behaviour about your usage such as the URLs you have read. With your Clicking Behaviour, Ads & Data builds an advertising profile (for example: sports fan, male, 30-45 years) that allows to select the most appropriate advertising campaigns of advertisers.

Please note that Ads & Data works with several companies that offer advertising space. Have you withdrawn your consent on a Mediahuis Domain? Then you will no longer receive Targeted Advertisements there, but there is a chance that Ads & Data still holds an advertisement profile about you based on other visited domains within the Ads & Data network. Ads & Data’s privacy and cookie policy explains this in more detail.

For Targeted Advertisements, we request your consent to the use of Cookies for “Information storage and access” and “Personalised Advertisements”. You can change these preferences at any time via your privacy preferences.

Ads & Data’s privacy and cookie policy outlines the Targeted Advertisements Cookies that Ads & Data and its advertising partners place on Mediahuis Domains.

In addition, the Mediahuis Entity House of Recruitment Solutions BV, abbreviated HORS (which is the editor of “Jobat”) uses the following Cookies on Mediahuis Domains for Targeted Advertisements.

3.5 Cookies for Social Media

These Cookies allow you to log in to your accounts at social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn and share content from our Domains, or share certain content from a Mediahuis Domain on social media (features such as share, like, etc.).

These Cookies do not give us access to your social media accounts or the data you keep within them.

The use or interaction with social media buttons or functions is subject to the social media channel’s own rules – no Mediahuis Entity has any influence over this. Please consult the user conditions and the privacy policy of the relevant social media network to understand how the network handles your personal data.

Mediahuis Domains also use pixels, including the Facebook pixel. If you are looking for a job or house on Jobat.be or Zimmo.be, for example, we can, thanks to these pixels, reach you later on other social media sites such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Instagram, … with additional relevant offers. We can also display advertisements from Mediahuis Services such as trial subscriptions on social media sites when you have read articles on a Mediahuis Domain.

For this Social Media functionality, we require your consent to use Cookies for “Information storage and access” and “Social Media”. You can change these preferences at any time via your privacy preferences.
