All these matters are laid down in a regulation. Of course, HungerNdThirst Foundation treats the data with care, which is why, in addition to the aforementioned Data Protection Act, a number of rules have been laid down in a privacy policy.

Cookie Policy
Since 5 June 2012, all websites that use cookies have to comply with the new laws and regulations that came into effect on that date. These regulations can be found in article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act and relate to your privacy. Because we have to and want to comply with these regulations, we inform you in this 'policy' about the cookies that we use on our website. In addition, we inform you about the concept of cookies in general, so that it is clear to you what they are all about. If you have any questions about cookies and their use on our website, we kindly ask you to contact us.

Cookies, what are they anyway?
Cookies are placed on your computer by websites. When you visit a website via your smartphone or tablet, the relevant cookies are also placed there. But what are cookies anyway? Cookies are small text files that are retrieved and read by your browser (the program that you use to visit the Internet, e.g. Internet Explorer, Google Chrome, Firefox or Safari) when you visit a particular website. The information contained in these text files depends on the person who created the data from the cookies. If, for example, you leave your personal data on a website, a cookie may be created that automatically fills in your data when you visit this website again. A cookie will then be created on your computer that contains this personal data. Because cookies are text files, they do not immediately pose a danger to your computer. For example, they cannot contain viruses and cookies do not affect your computer's system. However, they may contain privacy-sensitive information, which is why an owner of a website that uses cookies should inform you about this. The cookies often contain an unreadable computer code. When you open such a file on your computer, you will often not be able to see what information is stored in it. This information is often in the database of the website you are visiting.

Differences in cookies
Direct and indirect cookies
There are two different types of cookies, indirect and direct. Direct cookies are the cookies that are placed on your website by the website you visit. These are, for example, cookies that remember your personal or log-in data. We call these cookies first-party cookies. Another example of this is a cookie that is created to remember your items in a shopping cart of a web shop. Indirect cookies are cookies that are placed on your computer by others, i.e. a third party, via the website you visit. An example is a program such as Google Analytics, which maps out the visit and use of the website. The owner of a website can use such a program to see, for example, how often his website is visited. Indirect cookies are called third- party cookies. Cookies are small text files that are placed on a computer, telephone or tablet. The cookies are read by the browser (e.g. Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) when you open an internet page. The creator of a cookie determines what text files he places in that cookie. As long as you, as a user, do not enter any personal data on the site you have visited, the cookie cannot contain this information either. There are direct and indirect cookies, also known as first- and third- party cookies. Cookies are in principle not dangerous; they are not computer programs and they cannot be used to spread computer viruses.

The duration of a cookie
Cookies have a different duration. Some cookies are deleted from your computer immediately after you close a website. Other cookies have a longer duration. The 'lifetime' of a cookie is determined by its creator. Cookies can therefore remain on your computer for several years if you do not delete them. If you would like information on how to delete cookies, please consult the Internet. There's plenty of information on this.

Tracking cookies
Tracking cookies are actually the cookies that most intrude on your privacy. These are often indirect cookies, or third- party cookies. These cookies follow you on several occasions.
websites on the internet and thus build a profile of you, which can be used, for example, to display advertisements. You may have noticed that you searched for something on Google and that when you visited another website you saw advertisements that were related to your search. This is an example of a tracking cookie.
