Cookie policy


Cookies are small data or text files that are stored by websites and applications on your local computer. Such cookies can have different purposes: there are technical cookies (for example for saving language settings), session cookies (temporary cookies that expire after one session) and tracking cookies (cookies that follow and remember your behaviour on the internet to be able to offer you an optimal surfing experience).

The Belgian Law on electronic communication of 13 June 2005 includes several provisions on cookies and their use on websites. The law is the conversion of the European ePrivacy Directive, meaning that cookie laws can be can implemented differently in other European member states.

Foresco is established in Belgium and consequently follows Belgian law relating to cookies.

Purpose and usefulness of cookies

Foresco wishes to inform each visitor to the platform/website as best it can about rights under Belgian law relating to cookies, and about which cookies Foresco uses. By using the platform/website the visitor consents to the use of cookies. Cookies help Foresco to optimise your visit to the platform/website, to remember technical options (for example a language choice, a newsletter, etc.) and show you more relevant services and offers.

If you want to view the Foresco platform/website, it is recommended to have technical settings for cookies switched on. Without these cookies switched on Foresco cannot guarantee a trouble-free visit to the platform/website. If you prefer not to use the cookies, you as a visitor are free to switch the cookies off.

We use cookies to improve your visit to our platform/website. The cookies we use are safe. The information that we collect using cookies helps us to identify any errors or show you specific services which we think may be of interest to you.

Types of cookies used by FORESCO

We make a distinction between the following types of cookies depending on their purposes:

Essential/strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are required to have the platform/website function and cannot be switched off in our systems. They are usually only set in response to actions taken by you such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. They are required for good communication and facilitate navigation (for example returning to a last page, etc.).

Non-essential cookies

These cookies are not required in themselves to have the platform/website function, but they do help us to offer an improved and personalised website.

Functional cookies

These cookies allow the platform/website to offer improved functionality and personalisation. They can be set by us or by external providers whose services we have added to our pages.

Analytical cookies

With these cookies we can record visits and traffic so we can gauge and improve the performance of our platform/website. They help us to see which pages are the most and least popular and how visitors surf through the platform/website.

Targeting/advertising cookies

These cookies can be set by our advertising partners through our platform/website.
They can be used by the companies to create a profile of your interests and show you relevant advertisements on other sites.

On the one hand we use our own cookies, and on the other cookies from carefully selected partners with whom we cooperate and who advertise our services on their website.

Google Analytics

The American company Google saves a cookie on our website as a part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to record what visitors do on the website. Google can provide this information to third parties if Google is legally bound to, or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We have not allowed Google to use the analytics information for other Google services.

The information Google collects is made anonymous to the extent possible. Your IP address is emphatically not sent. The information is transferred to Google. Google then saves this information on servers in the United States. The company states to comply with the Safe Harbor principles and is affiliated to the Safe Harbor programme of the United States Department of Commerce. This includes a suitable level of protection for the processing of any personal data.
