Cookie Policy

Welcome to the Cookies Policy of the DPE International Consulting SRL website, provided with Tax Identification No. BE 0718.598.764, where we explain the necessary issues so that you can have control over them based on your personal decisions.

WHAT ARE COOKIES AND WHAT DO WE USE THEM FOR?

A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your device every time you visit our website.

In principle, a cookie is harmless: it does not contain viruses, Trojans, worms, etc. that could damage your terminal, but it does have a certain impact on your right to the protection of your personal data, as it collects certain information concerning you (browsing habits, identity, preferences, etc.). That is why, based on the provisions of the applicable regulations (LSSI and current personal data protection regulations), the activation of certain types of cookies will require your prior authorisation.  

1/ Cookies can be of various types depending on their purpose:

– Technical cookies are necessary for our website to function, they do not require your authorisation and are the only ones we have activated by default.

– The other cookies are used to improve our website, to personalise it based on your preferences, or to be able to show you advertising tailored to your searches, tastes and personal interests. You can accept all these cookies by clicking on the ACCEPT button or configure them or reject their use by clicking on the COOKIE CONFIGURATION section.

2/ Some cookies are ours (we will call them our own cookies) and others belong to external companies that provide services for our website (we will call them third-party cookies: an example could be cookies from external providers such as Google). Some of these external providers may be located outside Belgium.

Globally, not all countries have the same level of data protection, with some countries being more secure than others (for example, the European Union is a secure environment for your data). Our policy is to use reliable providers who, whether or not they are located in the European Union, have adopted appropriate safeguards for the protection of your personal information. However, in the section entitled WHAT TYPES OF COOKIES ARE CURRENTLY USED ON OUR WEBSITE, you can consult the different privacy and data protection policies of each of the aforementioned external suppliers, in order to make an informed decision about whether or not to activate the third-party cookies used by our website.  

3/ Depending on the length of time they remain active, cookies can be of two types:

Session cookies: they expire automatically when you end the session on your device. They are usually used to retain the necessary information while a service is provided to you on a single occasion.

Persistent cookies: these remain stored on your device for a certain period of time, which can vary from a few minutes to several years.

WHAT KIND OF COOKIES CAN YOU FIND ON A WEBSITE?

Technical Cookies:

  • Technical cookies are strictly necessary for a website to work and for you to be able to browse it. This type of cookies are those that, for example, allow us to identify you, give you access if necessary, or remember different options or services already selected by you, such as your privacy preferences. For this reason, they are activated by default, and you do not need to authorise them.
  • Through the configuration of your browser, you can block or alert of the presence of this type of cookies, although this blocking will affect the correct functioning of the different functionalities of the website.

Analysis Cookies:

  • Analysis cookies make it possible to study the browsing of users of a web page in general (for example, which sections of the page are the most visited, which services are most used and whether they work correctly, etc.).
  • Based on statistical information about browsing on a website, it is possible to improve both the functioning of the website itself and the different services it offers. These cookies do not have an advertising purpose, they are used to make the website work better, adapting it to users in general. By activating them you will contribute to this continuous improvement.
  • You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.

Functionality and Personalisation Cookies:

  • Functionality cookies allow you to remember your preferences, to customise certain features and general options of a website to your needs, each time you access it (for example, the language in which the information is presented to you, the sections marked as favourites, your browser type, etc.). These types of cookies do not have an advertising purpose, by activating them you will improve the functionality of the website (for example, by adapting to your type of browser) and the personalisation of the same based on your preferences (for example, by presenting the information in the language you have chosen on previous occasions), which will contribute to the ease, usability and comfort of the page during your browsing.
  • You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.

Advertising Cookies:

  • Advertising cookies allow the management of the advertising spaces included on a web page based on criteria such as the content shown or the frequency at which the advertisements are shown.
  • Thus, for example, if you have been shown the same ad several times on a web page, and you have not shown a personal interest by clicking on it, it will not appear again. In short, by activating these types of cookies, the advertising displayed on a website will be more useful and diverse, and less repetitive.
  • You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.

Behavioural Advertising Cookies:

  • Behavioural advertising cookies allow us to obtain information based on the observation of your browsing habits and behaviours on the web, in order to be able to show you advertising content that is better suited to your personal tastes and interests.
  • Therefore, by activating this type of cookies, the advertising shown to you on the website will not be generic, but will be oriented to your searches, tastes and interests, therefore adjusting exclusively to you.
  • You can activate or deactivate these cookies by ticking the corresponding box, as they are deactivated by default.
