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 follow and keep track of your behaviour on the Internet in order to offer you a more optimal user experience).

The law is a transposition of the European e-Privacy Directive, which means that the cookie legislation may be implemented differently in other European member states.

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