4. What cookies do we use?

4.1 Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are cookies that are installed on your device by another domain than the Natural Granen website. In this case, it is analytical cookies from other parties than Natural Granen, who collect information about the technical data of the exchange and the use of the website to improve the operation thereof and show you content based on your interests.

Google Analytics

Google Inc. installs cookies via our website as a part of their analytics service. This service provides us with reports on how visitors use our website. As a rule, the information we receive on your browsing behaviour is sent to a Google server in the United States of America and stored there. Google then provides us with a report based on this data with information about how visitors use our website. The Google Analytics cookies collect information about how you use our website (the pages you visited, average duration of your visit, etc.). Thanks to the content of these cookies, we can improve the content on our website. We cannot give you the exact names of the cookies used because these change often, but you can find more information about Google Analytics and read the Google Privacy Policy on http://www.google.com/intl/nl/policies/technologies/ads/ and on https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245.

Google can provide this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so or if these third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We have no influence upon this.

We base ourselves on your implicit permission for installing Google Analytics cookies. When you continue to browse the website, we consider this to be your permission to install these cookies on your device.

5. Managing or deleting cookies

Most internet browsers are set up to automatically accept these kinds of cookies. You can refuse or delete cookies via your browser settings. The method for doing this depends on your browser. Consult your browser’s Help user guide, and if necessary, you can also consult your browser’s Help function. Please note: you must always set the settings per browser and per computer/device!

If you do not want Google Analytics to use your data, you can install the Google Analytics Opt-out Browsers Add-On. This add-on lets Google Analytics know that you do not want your browsing data to be collected.

The refusal or deletion or deactivating of cookies can result in certain functions on the website operating poorly or not at all. This can have a negative impact on your experience of the site.
