Functional cookies – Process cookies help make a website function and deliver the services that the user expects to receive, such as navigation, access to secure areas, etc. These cookies are necessary and without them the website will not function properly, f.e. Preference cookies to allow a website to remember the preferences in relation to the website such as language, region, age, etc. These cookies are not vital but enhance users experience.

Performance cookies – collect information about how the user interacts with a website. This may include the pages user visits most often, his activity on the website and how often he returns.

User consent is not required for the delivery of those cookies which are strictly necessary to provide services requested by the user (Strictly Necessary Cookies).

On the other hand, user consent is required for the other cookies: Performance Cookies, Functional Cookies, Targeting cookies.

The use of these cookies need a valid, freely given, specific, informed and active consent.

Implied consent is no longer sufficient. Consent must be given through a clear affirmative action, such as clicking an opt-in box or choosing settings or preferences on a settings menu. Simply visiting the Het Anker website doesn’t count as consent.

‘By using this site, you accept cookies’ messages are also not sufficient for the same reasons. If there is no genuine and free choice, then there is no valid consent. Therefore, Het Anker makes it possible for the user to both accept or reject cookies.

This means: It must be as easy to withdraw consent as it is to give it.

Het Anker provides an opt-out option. Even after getting valid consent, Het Anker gives people the option to change their mind.
As mentioned before every browser (Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, Google Chrome, etc) has its own method to configure cookies. The browsers offer a different approach to the cookie settings. In most cases you can accept or refuse storing cookies. Alternatively you can indicate which cookies you want to store case by case. In the above overview you can find the opt-out link for each separate cookie.


This Cookie Policy may be changed over time. Such changes shall be effective immediately upon the posting of the modified Cookie Policy. Users of the Het Anker-Website are advised to regularly read the Privacy and Cookie Policy for possible changes.
