Alphabet Belgium Long Term Rental NV, as Data Controller, (hereinafter referred to as “Alphabet” or “we”) has chosen to use the eSignatures Solution and eSignatures Platform (collectively the “eSignatures Service”) provided by Connective NV, acting as a processor.

WHAT IS A COOKIE?

Cookies are small text files that can be stored on your computer or mobile devices when you visit a website.

Information is stored in a text file, such as your language preference for a website. When you visit the website again later, this cookie is sent again to the website. In this way, the website recognizes your browser and, for example, your language preference can be remembered.

Below is a list of the categories of cookies and their purposes:

These cookies enable users to navigate through the website and use the essential functions of the website. These cookies also ensure that a service or functionality explicitly requested by the user can be provided. These cookies can be placed without your permission. We also recommend that you do not disable these cookies as this may cause you to lose basic functionalities of the website or access to certain parts of the website.

These cookies ensure that the website functions properly and guarantee a faster and more efficient use. These cookies can be placed without your permission.

These cookies collect data about the use of the website such as the number of visitors, the time visitors spend on a web page and error messages, provide us with information about user traffic on our website, e.g. how users arrive at the website and if there are any navigation problems. We ask for your permission before placing these cookies.

First-party Advertising cookies placed on the website ensure that the website can send personalized advertising messages. We ask for your permission before placing these cookies.

Be aware that 3rd party advertisers and tech giants (such as Google, Amazon, Adobe) ask for your consent via their own privacy policy for transfers of your personal data outside the EU.

Social media follows the surfing behavior of users across different sites with 'tracking cookies'. Social media places a cookie while you visit site A and can read the cookie again when you visit site B. This allows Social media to profile you in a targeted manner and to send you advertising.

Please note that most social media providers are US-based companies, which request your consent via their own privacy policy for transfers of your personal data outside the EU.

It is important to distinguish between first-party and third-party cookies, to know if cookie information is disclosed to third parties:

    Direct or first-party cookies are placed and managed by the website owner and are specific to the visited or used website.

      Indirect cookies or third-party cookies are cookies that are managed and placed by a 3rd party.

      Third-party cookies therefore ensure that certain data is sent to third parties when you visit a website. These can be, for example, cookies from social media or advertisers. These third parties may have access to specific cookie information (such as your userID, surname, first name, email address, pages visited, banners clicked, etc.), e.g. in order to provide you with personalized advertisements or to collect your feedback.

      Consult the overview 'OVERVIEW OF COOKIES USED' for specific cookies when you use the e-Signature services.

      WHAT COOKIE INFORMATION is obtained by using the e-Signature services?

      • Encrypted token containing authentication and user info retrieved from Authentication Service (ID Token, Access Token, UserInfo)

      HOW LONG IS COOKIE INFORMATION RETAINED?

      Cookies may remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Depending on the type of cookie, they (and the information they collect) are automatically deleted when you close your browser (these are the so-called "session cookies").
