YTW and our affiliated parties, external parties and other partners uses cookies, trackers, scripts and social media buttons (hereinafter collectively referred to as “Technologies”) for a number of purposes on and in our websites, mobile applications, e-mail communication, advertisements and other online services (collectively the services), including user verification, remembering user preferences and settings, determining the popularity of content, providing and measuring the effectiveness of advertising campaigns, analyzing website traffic and trends and gaining insight into online behavior and interests of people who interact with our services to help us provide a better, faster and safer experience. These technologies are also placed through third parties engaged by YTW. Of course we take your privacy with regard to these technologies very seriously.

Which technologies do we use?

As already mentioned above, we use different technologies for collecting data. For example, we use scripts, trackers and cookies. The Technologies used will be explained to you below.

1. What is a script?

A script is a piece of program code that is used to make our website work properly and to make it interactive. This code can be executed on our server or on your equipment.

2. What is a tracker?

A tracker is a small, invisible piece of text or image on our website that is used to map the traffic on our website. To map the traffic we use multiple trackers that each store different data from you. We can also have third-party trackers placed on our website to monitor the traffic on our website for us.

3. What are cookies?

A cookie is a simple small text file that is sent along with pages from our website and is stored by your web browser on the hard drive of your computer. Some cookies only help you to make the link between your activities on our website during one website visit. Other cookies are stored on the hard disk of your computer and are sent back to our servers or those of a third party that has placed the cookie for us when you visit our website again.

4. What are social media buttons?

In addition to cookies, our websites also use social media buttons. These buttons are included to promote (‘like’) or share (‘tweet’) web pages on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Youtube. These buttons work with pieces of code that originate from Facebook, Twitter, Google + and YouTube.

Why do we use these technologies?

We place cookies, trackers and scripts with different purposes, namely: functional, analytical and marketing purposes. Below you will find an overview of the different purposes for using the Technologies. For a specific overview of all Technologies used by us, the associated purposes and specific functions of the Technologies, please refer to our Technologies list. This list is regularly updated by us to provide you with an as accurate as possible overview of the Technologies used by us.

1. Functional purposes

We use different technologies to ensure that our website functions well and is easy to use. Scripts and cookies are used for this purpose. Scripts ensure that the website is interactive and that as soon as you click on something, something actually happens. Cookies are used to enable functions such as the shopping basket. Without cookies, the shopping basket could not remember the products you selected. Remembering your address is also a function that would not work without cookies. Some of the Technologies used for functional purposes are so essential to the operation of our website that they cannot be disabled. These Technologies will not be kept longer than a few hours after your website visit.

2. Analytical purposes

We use cookies and trackers to analyze your behavior on our website in order to improve and adapt our website to your wishes. We hope in this way to make our website as user-friendly as possible. For example, we keep track of which pages are visited the most and how you navigate on our website.

3. Marketing purposes

We naturally hope that you use our website as often as possible and therefore use cookies and trackers to advertise. By means of cookies we can offer you interesting offers and / or discounts. For this purpose we analyze, among other things, how often you use our website and which products you find interesting. This allows us to better adjust our offer and advertisements to your wishes. Another marketing goal for which we use trackers is to check whether you come from a website of one of our advertisers. This is necessary because we have to pay our advertisers for customers who visit our website via their platform (or place an order on our platform).
