1. Cookies

Cookies are small data or text files that websites and applications place on your local computer. Such cookies can have different purposes: there are technical cookies (e.g. to keep track of language settings), session cookies (temporary cookies that expire after one session) and tracking cookies (cookies that track and keep track of your behaviour on the Internet in order to provide you with a more optimal user experience).

The Belgian Electronic Communications Act of 13 June 2005 contains certain provisions regarding cookies and their use on websites. The law is a transposition of the European e-Privacy Directive, which means that the cookie legislation can be implemented differently in other European member states.

Bwoods is based in Belgium and therefore follows the Belgian legislation on cookies.
