Cookie policy

This cookie policy provides you with clear and comprehensive information about the cookies we use and the purposes for using them.  


What is a cookie?

A text file that stores information such as your language preference for a website. When you visit the website again later, this cookie is sent back to the website. This allows the website to recognise your browser and, for example, to remember your language preference.

Cookies also usually have an expiry date. For example, some cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser (so-called session cookies), while others remain on your computer for a longer period of time, sometimes even until you delete them manually (so-called permanent cookies).


Why do we use cookies?

Delaware Consulting CVBA, hereinafter referred to as "delaware", which is the administrator of this website, uses four types of cookies on Error! Hyperlink reference not valid.:

  • essential cookies;
  • functional cookies;
  • analytical cookies;
  • cookies for marketing.

delaware uses necessary cookies to manage the content of its website. These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of this website. You cannot reject these cookies when visiting our websites.

delaware also uses HubSpot, Google Analytics, LinkedIn, Microsoft Application Insights and SiteCore for functional, analytical and marketing purposes.

These tools are installed on our own server. These are therefore "first party" cookies. This means that we have full control over the information collected by these cookies. No data is transferred to a third party. Consequently, we can guarantee that this information will not be used for other purposes. The use of these "first party" cookies for analytical purposes is subject to your prior consent. These cookies are therefore only installed on your device after you have given your consent.


Which cookies do we use?

List of essential cookies

These cookies are needed for purely technical reasons to allow visits to the delaware website. Because of their technical necessity, only an information obligation applies and these cookies are installed as soon as you visit the website.
