3.4 Cookies for advertisements
We use this type of Cookie to show you advertisements on our websites and apps.
These advertisements are placed by us and/or third parties and are a necessary source of income to finance our editorial and digital platforms.
Some advertisements only take into account the content and position on the website (e.g. advertisements about sports equipment within the sports section). With Targeted Advertisements, we or advertisers may, based on your Clicking Behaviour and Registered Data, target a message specifically to certain audiences (e.g., “sports fans from Antwerp”).
These Cookies make it possible to do this:
- We keep track of which adverts you have seen to prevent that you always see the same adverts,
- We verify how many visitors click on the advert and thus we are able to share its usefulness with the advertiser,
- We pass on information on your Clicking Behaviour to other websites for them to show you Targeted Advertisements,
- Third parties can show you Targeted Advertisements on our Mediahuis Domains,
- We can show you Targeted Advertisements about our offer on other websites,
- Make offers about products and services more specific,
- Recognise your interests at the different Mediahuis Domains.
Mediahuis works together with advertising agency Ads & Data NV (Harensesteenweg 226, 1800 Vilvoorde, KBO 0809.309.701) to make advertising as relevant as possible. To this end, Ads & Data and its advertising partners place Cookies to create an advertising profile about you and to display Targeted Advertisements on Mediahuis Domains.
Do you visit a Mediahuis Domain like www.nieuwsblad.be? Then Ads & Data assigns your Device a random identification number and collects the Clicking Behaviour about your usage such as the URLs you have read. With your Clicking Behaviour, Ads & Data builds an advertising profile (for example: sports fan, male, 30-45 years) that allows to select the most appropriate advertising campaigns of advertisers.
In addition, the Mediahuis Entity House of Recruitment Solutions BV, abbreviated HORS (which is the editor of “Jobat”) uses the following Cookies on Mediahuis Domains for Targeted Advertisements.
