Cookies on this website
On this page you will find more information about what exactly cookies are, which cookies are used by this website and how you can influence cookies.
What are cookies?
A cookie is a piece of text given by a web server to a visiting browser in the hope and expectation that the browser will return it on a subsequent visit.
The cookie is an addition to the HTTP specification. The HyperText Transfer Protocol is used by anyone visiting a website: it controls communication between a web server and a browser. However, it is not designed to view successive page visits as a single entity. As a result, it is not readily possible to retrieve data or settings on subsequent visits. To make that possible anyway, the cookie and set-cookie headers for HTTP were introduced in 1997. This specification was last updated in April 2011 and currently goes by the name RFC 6265 HTTP State Management Mechanism.
How do cookies work?
Cookies that you get for the same domain you are visiting are called first-party cookies. So when viewing this page, the cookies from this website are first-party cookies.
It is also possible that a website contains elements from third-parties. Well-known examples are embedded videos, advertisements and social media buttons. If cookies are sent along with these elements from their own servers, these are called third-party cookies. It is therefore possible that, when visiting this website, you will receive third-party cookies for Facebook.com, Youtube.com and other third-party websites.
Due to the way HTTP works and the security surrounding cookies, it is not possible for the estate agent to influence the sending of third-party cookies.
What other storage is there for websites?
Besides cookies, other storage options have emerged at the browser since 1997. Since these are hardly ever used, they are only briefly touched upon.
Flash applications have their own form of cookies, similar to those for HTTP. Apart from recording user preferences such as image quality and the Autoplay function in the video player, the website does not do anything else with these kinds of cookies.
Html5 local storage is a recent development. Web applications can use this to store - compared to cookies - quite large amounts of data. Due to limited support in browsers, this website does not use it.
What are cookies used for on this website?
Cookies make it possible to retrieve information from previous visits during follow-up visits. If you have made certain settings and that you have seen certain site elements before. Cookies that adapt the functioning of the site to your needs are called functional cookies.
In addition, cookies can also be used to let the site know that a visitor has been on the site before. In this way, statistical data on the use of the website can be collected. A well-known example of this is Google Analytics. This uses only anonymised statistical information that is used by us to analyse and improve how the site works. This website currently uses Google Analytics to collect statistics. Information about your visiting behaviour can also be used to tailor advertisements to your interests. For this purpose, this estate agent only uses anonymised information about pages you have previously visited on this website.
Which cookies are used?
Below you will find a list of the first-party cookies that are set or allowed to be set on this website.
|_GAT, _GA, GAT_MakelaarTracker, _GID or others with the designation _GID of GA
|Cookies used in Google Analytics to track visitor statistics.
What cookies may others place when visiting this website?
On this website, it is possible to share pages with third parties via the various social media buttons of Facebook, Google+, Linkedin and Twitter.
|Facebook, Google +1, LinkedIn, Twitter
|Social media buttons in various places on this website. Cookies track, for example, whether you have already pressed the Facebook 'Like' button.
|Youtube.com and other video hosts.
With videos placed on this website by the estate agent, cookies are often placed.
The best-known video host is Youtube, but there are many more.
Do the cookies from this website contain information about my personal data?
No. Your name, age, gender and other personal data, are never stored in a cookie.
Without cookies, it is almost impossible for us to give you as a visitor the best experience when visiting the site. This has to do with analysing web statistics to determine how the site should look and navigate, but also to determine what content is popular and what is not actually read by our visitors.
While we are not obliged to ask permission for these third-party cookies (the responsibility for this lies with the third party, i.e. YouTube, for example), we are obliged to remove the content the moment it is found that the third party has failed to ask permission. This would mean that the moment even a single person complains about an image or clip, we would have to remove it for everyone, or develop technology that allows us to filter individual content for each individual user. This is practically virtually impracticable.
