The Dutch Cookie Act came into force in 2012. This Act stipulates that website must inform their visitors clearly and fully about the use of cookies. The Act also states that websites must obtain consent from visitors to use most cookies. In 2015, an amendment of the Act was finalized, which means that cookies with little or no consequences for privacy fall outside the scope of the cookie legislation. The Act still requires websites to obtain consent from visitors before privacy-sensitive cookies may be used. On this page you can read what cookies are, what purpose they serve, how Ridder handles cookies and how you can disable them.
