We may use cookies on our websites, in marketing e-mail messages or our newsletter, on affiliated websites, etc. to determine whether messages have been opened and links clicked on. The information provided below about cookies also applies to these other technologies.

What are cookies?

Cookies can have different purposes: to ensure that the website takes user’s preferences into account by, for example, remembering language preferences, collecting statistical data, customising content, etc. Therefore, there are different types of cookies that can be distinguished according to their origin, function and lifetime.

What cookies does Boplan use?

We use first-party cookies as well as third-party cookies, session cookies and permanent cookies:

  • First-party cookies are cookies installed by Boplan.
  • Third-party cookies are cookies installed by other domains (e.g. Google Analytics cookies).
  • Session cookies are deleted when the user closes the browser.
  • Permanent cookies remain on the user’s device for a certain period of time.

Below is a list of the cookies used by Boplan.

Strictly necessary cookies

Strictly necessary cookies or essential cookies are necessary for the website to function properly and cannot be deactivated in our cookie banner. These cookies are set directly on your browser by Boplan based on our legitimate interest in providing a well-functioning and secure website. You can set your browser to block these cookies or alert you about these cookies, but with as a consequence that some parts of the site may not work properly. You can also deactivate these cookies by changing your browser preferences.

Functional cookies

Functional cookies ensure that the website functions properly. These cookies make your visit to the website website more convenient and improve the user experience. Functional cookies allow us to remember choices you make (such as your language preference) and provide more enhanced, personalised features. These cookies cannot track your browsing activity on other websites and they do not collect information about you that could be used for advertising or to remember where you have been on the internet outside of our site.

We also use functional security cookies to ensure the security of our website.These cookies are set directly on your browser by Boplan based on our legitimate interest in providing a well-functioning and secure website and pages with content that is relevant to you. You can deactivate these cookies by changing your browser settings. However, in this case, the website may not function properly.

Analytics cookies (non-essential cookies)

Boplan uses analytics cookies to provide us with information about the use of our website and to optimise our website.

Analytics cookies are cookies that collect information to evaluate and improve the content of our websites. Analytics cookies collect information about your visit and use of this website, such as which pages you visit the most often, and whether you receive error messages from web pages. These cookies are used to track the performance of the website, for example, to know the number of pages visited or the number of users who viewed a particular section. These cookies do not collect information that directly identifies a user. Analysis of these cookies generates aggregated statistics. Any information collected by these cookies will only be used to improve the operation and functionality of our website.

These cookies are set on the basis of your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

(Social) sharing cookies (non-essential cookies)

We use social sharing cookies from LinkedIn, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and other similar social media sites to enable you to share any content on our website that interests you with other people on social networks. We may serve targeted advertisements on these networks based on your interaction with our website. These cookies are set on our website through hyperlinks, social plugins or links to social media operators. When you use these share buttons, a third-party cookie is installed.

Social plugins connect to the social network operator's servers. Another click will take you to the relevant Boplan social media page.

Your data will be transmitted to the social network operator. Boplan enables the collection of data by setting up the social plugin on our website, but has no influence on what data or how much data the social network collects with the help of the social plugin. The social plugin sets a cookie with a unique identifier each time the website is accessed. This allows the social network to build a profile of your browsing behaviour. Such a profile may be linked to you in the event of a subsequent initial registration with the social network, but Boplan does not have access to this profile.

If you are already registered with a social network when you visit our website, the operator of this social network may be able to associate your visit with your personal account through the social plugins. When you use the social plugin functions (e.g. "Like" button, "Tweet", leave comments...), the information about this use is transmitted directly from your browser to the corresponding social network and stored there. The same applies when you visit a social network's website by clicking on the corresponding icon.

If you are not a member of a social network, it is still possible that the social networks may receive and store your IP address and information about the browser and operating system you are using through the social plugins.

These cookies are set on the basis of your consent. You can withdraw your consent at any time.

Marketing cookies (non-essential cookies)

Marketing cookies (e.g. advertising or tracking cookies) collect information about your browsing habits in order to make advertising more relevant to you and your interests.

We use (mainly) third party cookies from companies such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Google etc. to understand how users arrive on our websites and how they interact with us on the website. We also use these cookies to understand how our media campaigns are working. This information is used to evaluate and improve the content of our website and our campaigns and ultimately to improve the user experience.

1. Deliver advertisements that are more relevant to you and your interests

2. Limit the number of times you see an advertisement

3. Help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign
