1/ WHAT IS A COOKIE?

A cookie is a small piece of data that a website asks your browser to store on your computer or mobile device. Cookies may have different purposes: there are technical (functional) cookies (e.g. language settings), session (temporary) cookies, and tracking (analytical) cookies (which analyse and record the behaviour you adopt on the website in order to offer you the best possible experience).

The Belgian Electronic Communications Act (transposing into Belgian Law the EU Telecommunications Act) contains a number of provisions about cookies and their use on websites. This Act is derived from the Directive 2002/58 on Privacy and Electronic Communications, otherwise known as E-Privacy Directive. This implies that the use of cookies is regulated differently in each European country. Hiddit is a Belgian enterprise that provides an online platform; this means that use will be governed and interpreted pursuant to the laws of Belgium.
