Under the new Dutch Cookie Law (Cookiewet), which was enacted on 5th June 2012, all websites operated from the Netherlands which measure website traffic and record data relating thereto using cookies and other technologies – which includes virtually all websites – are required to comply with this legislation. The law is designed for all websites operated from the Netherlands and websites focusing on the Dutch market. The use of each non-functional cookie must be authorised. Examples of functional cookies include those that remember your login details or products you have saved to your shopping basket. Non-functional cookies include cookies set by websites such as YouTube, Spotify and Vimeo.

While you can choose to reject all non-functional cookies, functional cookies are set automatically; these cookies are needed for the website to work properly. If you reject these cookies, some content on the website – such as YouTube videos – will not be displayed. You can still accept the cookies in the blocked content so as to display the content.
