General

BODYSKIN primarily makes use of cookies to enhance your surfing experience on https://www.minetanbodyskin.eu (hereinafter the “Website”). All data we retrieve from our cookies is anonymous and is only used to understand the customer experience on the website with the aim to improve the performance and usability on this Website.

Any change of the current cookie statement will be announced on the Website and/or via email and the new statement shall enter into force thirty (30) days after the announcement. This statement was last modified on 23/05/2014.

A cookie, also known as an HTTP cookie, web cookie, or browser cookie, is usually a small piece of data sent from a website and stored in a user's web browser while a user is browsing a website. When the user browses the same website in the future, the data stored in the cookie can be retrieved by the website to notify the website of the user's previous activity. Cookies were designed to be a reliable mechanism for websites to remember the state of the website or activity the user had taken in the past. They help us to optimize your visit to the website, to remember technical choices (e.g. choice of language, a newsletter, etc.) and to show more relevant services and offers. If you want to consult our website we recommend that you have the cookies turned on. However, if you prefer not to do this, you are always free to not turn them on.

Cookies may include clicking particular buttons, logging in, or a record of which pages were visited by the user even months or years ago. Although cookies cannot carry viruses, and cannot install malware on the host computer, tracking cookies and especially third-party tracking cookies are commonly used as ways to compile long-term records of individuals' browsing histories — a major privacy concern that prompted European and US law makers to take action in 2011. This cookie policy is in accordance with the current Belgian law (Law of 10/07/2012 laying down provisions on electronic communications, BS 20/9/2012).
