Cookies on www.COVERED.com 

New legislation regarding the use of cookies on websites came into effect on June 5, 2018. These rules are included in Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act (Tw) and also relate to your privacy. Because your privacy is of great importance to us, we would like to inform you about this subject. 

It is important to note that even for involved parties, it is not yet entirely clear how this new regulation will work in practice. COVERED closely monitors developments and will do everything possible to comply with the new cookie rules. 

We strive to inform you as openly and comprehensively as possible about the cookies we use on COVERED.com. We use cookies to improve your user experience on our website and to tailor advertisements to your interests. Below you will find more information about cookies, their purposes, and how you can sign out of cookies if desired.

What are cookies? 

Cookies are small text files placed on a computer, phone, or tablet. When opening a web page, these cookies are read by the browser (such as Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox). The creator of a cookie determines what information is placed in that cookie. 

As long as you, as a user, do not enter personal data on the visited site, the cookie cannot contain this information either. There are direct and indirect cookies, also called first-party and third-party cookies. Cookies themselves are not dangerous; they are not computer programs and cannot be used to spread computer viruses. 

Types of cookies 

- First-party cookie 

A first-party (direct) cookie is placed by the website you visit. These cookies serve various purposes, such as remembering your login name and items you have placed in a shopping cart. 

- Third-party cookie 

A third-party cookie tracks a user across different websites and can thus build a user profile. These cookies are often used for targeted online advertising. An advertising network then places a cookie on your device via a third-party site. This cookie can be read by the network on various websites within that advertising network. 

Sharing with social media networks 

You have probably noticed that companies place cookies on your computer, tablet, or phone. This happens, for example, when you share products or content from a site via social networking sites such as Twitter or Facebook. For more information about this, you can visit:
