You can read how StEP Noordoostpolder uses cookies in this cookie declaration.

A cookie is a small file sent with pages of this website and stored by the browser on the hard disk of your computer. StEP Noordoostpolder places cookies necessary for the proper functioning of the site, for example cookies that facilitate a reaction. The use of cookies is vital for the proper functioning of the website, however there are also a number of cookies which do not have an immediately obvious effect (such as Google Analytics) which are also important. Without anonymous input from visitors we have no idea how the website is used nor how we can improve it.

‘Tracking cookies’, placed for analytical purposes or advertising, are so-called ‘third party cookies’. These cookies are not placed by us, but by third parties. For this reason, we cannot be held responsible for them.

What types of cookies do we use?

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential to enable you to navigate the website and use its features. Without these cookies, some of the services you may have requested cannot be provided. As such cookies are fundamental to using the site, these cookies cannot be disabled without seriously affecting the use of the website.

Google Analytics
Anonymised data about surfing behaviour is collected by StEP Noordoostpolder via Google Analytics. This makes it possible for us to see how visitors like you use the website. We use this information to make informed decisions about our website design, as well as to optimise the website’s functioning. Google stores the information obtained on servers in the United States. Google will also make this information available to advertisers to help them understand the effectiveness of their campaigns. Google may also supply this information to third parties if obliged to do so by legislation, or insofar as third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We have no influence over this. We have refused Google permission to use the analytics information collected for other Google services. Please read Google’s privacy policy for further information, as well as the specific Google Analytics’ privacy policy.

If you do not want your click behaviour to be tracked, you can download a browser plugin via Google’s website that prevents this from happening. This setting applies to all websites you visit, not only to StEP Noordoostpolder. You can download the browser plugin here.
