Cookies policy

ArtSound uses cookies when you visit our website/webshop. In this policy we would like to inform you about what type of cookies we use and for what purpose. We'll also give you more information on how to manage these cookies.

This policy may be amended at any time if required by applicable law.

When personal data is collected through cookies, the processing is always in accordance with ArtSound's Privacy Policy.

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are placed on your computer by a site. These cookies collect as much data as possible about you and your surfing habits. This allows them to optimize the use of websites for you and to ensure that the website is more attuned to the personal preferences of the user. Furthermore, thanks to cookies you do not have to remember your password.

2. Where do cookies come from?

We already make a distinction between first-party cookies that we place and manage ourselves and third-party cookies that are placed on our websites by a third party.

3. What types of cookies do we use and for what purposes?

Different types of cookies can be placed through our different websites. The cookies can be divided into different categories:

Category 1: Functionally necessary and analytical cookies

These cookies ensure optimal functioning of the website and make it possible to collect analytical data. These cookies are set by default and cannot be changed, as they are essential for the proper functioning of our websites.

These analytical cookies collect aggregated data about the use of our websites, such as the number of visitors, which web pages are most frequently visited and the time users spend on a particular page.

Based on this data, we can always optimise our websites. In doing so, we may also make use of cookies from third parties, such as Google Analytics.

Category 2: Personalisation cookies

These cookies allow us to learn more about your user profile and to better tailor the content of the website and advertisements for ArtSound to your personal preferences and interests.

It's important to note that this type of cookies will not be used to show you advertisements for services or be passed on to third parties.

For the use of these cookies we ask your prior consent. You can therefore refuse these cookies being placed on your device by setting your cookie preferences.

Category 3: Marketing cookies

These types of cookies allow third parties to track your surfing behaviour, collect data based on this data and subsequently display personalised advertisements. These cookies offered by third parties enable certain social media functions such as a LinkedIn 'Share' button or a YouTube video.

Besides ArtSound, third parties (e.g. advertising partners) may also place cookies that track your browsing behavior on our website. These marketing cookies will also allow us to show you advertisements for ArtSound products in which you might be interested on websites that are part of those networks.

4. How long do cookies last?

Based on the duration of the cookies we can make a clear distinction between temporary and permanent cookies:

Permanent cookies: These types of cookies last for the lifetime of the cookie. They are activated every time you visit the website. (e.g. cookies placed by social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Google Analytics, etc.).

Session cookies: these types of cookies make it possible to simplify and link a user's actions during a browser session. Session cookies are placed temporarily. As soon as the browser is closed, all these session cookies are deleted.

5. How can you manage your cookie settings?

ArtSound gives you the opportunity to control the type of cookies we may use on your behalf. Accepting cookies by default does not mean that we will collect personal data about you, such as when you register/login.

After your first visit:

If you visit our website after you have already indicated your cookie preferences during a first visit on the same device, you will not be shown a cookie banner again.

6. Who can I contact if I have questions or complaints about cookies?
