Last updated: 17/08/2018 4:49pm

Thank you for using the VMC.ai (the “Website”). VMC.ai B.V. ("us", "we", or "our") cares deeply about the privacy of everyone that visits our website (the “Users”). We use cookies on our website. By using our website, you consent to the use of these cookies. This Cookie Policy explains what cookies are, how we use cookies, how our third-party cookies work and how you can change your cookie preferences. Please also see our Privacy Policy .

What are cookies

A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. Among other things, cookies enable a website to remember a user’s actions and preferences, provide for user-authentication, improve functionality of websites and allow for website analytics. A cookie can be classified by its lifespan and the domain to which it belongs. By lifespan, a cookie is either a:

  • session cookie; which is erased when the user closes the browser, or
  • persistent cookie; which remains on the user's computer/device for a pre defined period of time.

As for the domain to which it belongs, there are either;

  • first-party cookies; which are set by the web server of visited pages and share the same domain, or
  • third-party cookies; which are stored by a different domain to the visited page's domain. This can happen when the webpage references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain
How VMC.ai uses cookies

When you access and use our Website, we may place a number of cookies files in your web browser. We use both session and persistent cookies. Most of these are so-called essential cookies, which are needed for the functioning of our website. Such cookies do not require user-consent (see the EU advisory body on data protection, Working Party 29).

Essential cookies

Essential cookies are, like their name suggest, essential to how websites work. They are completely normal and should be no cause of concern for anyone. Some of the essential cookies we use are so-called ‘user-input’ cookies, used to track the user-input in our contact forms. They allow our website to display a Typeform. Others essential-cookies are used to store technical data that enables us to play video and/or audio content for the duration of a session. In other words, they allow us to display a Youtube multimedia content player. Two other types of essential cookies that we may use are so-called ‘authentication cookies’, which identify users on login and ‘user-centric security cookies’ to detect authentication abuses. We might also utilize ‘load-balancing cookies’, and ‘user-interface customisation cookies’ to track user-indicated preferences, such as a preferred language.

Non-essential cookies

Non-essential cookies are cookies which can be really useful for websites, but aren’t strictly essential. You, the user, have the right to be informed of these cookies when you visit a website. In fact, a website has to ask your permission before using such cookies in many jurisdictions, which is why you have been provided with the opportunity to deny consent to the use of cookies on your first visit to our website.

We use non-essential Google Analytics cookies to track visitor data for our website’s analytics. These cookies help us learn how our website performs in different locations, how users arrive at our site and how they use our site. They help us understand and improve our Service and features.

Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies are cookies that are stored by a different domain to the visited page's domain. This can happen when a web page references a file, such as JavaScript, located outside its domain. You have the right to be informed of, and deny consent to the use of, such third-party cookies. We use various third-parties cookies for the functioning of VMC.ai. Our Google Analytics, Typeform and Youtube cookies are third-party cookies.

What are your choices regarding cookies?

Some people find the idea of a website storing information on their computer or mobile device to be intrusive, particularly when this information is stored and used by a third party without them knowing. Although our cookies are absolutely harmless, you may still prefer to not allow any cookies to be stored on your device. When you arrived at VMC.ai, you have been provided with the option to provide consent as regards to our use of cookies. If you want to change your preferences as regards to our cookies at a later time, you may choose to block some or all of the cookies we use. Please note however that you might, if you choose to do so, not be able to use all of the features we offer, you may not be able to store your preferences, and some of our pages might not display properly.

If you want to restrict or block the cookies that are set by our Site, or any other site, you can do so through your browser settings. The ‘Help’ function in your browser should explain how. Alternatively, you can visit About Cookies or Information Technology Services, which are pages contain comprehensive information about cookies and details on how to delete cookies from your machine. To opt-out of specific services of third-parties collecting any data regarding your interaction on our website, please refer to their websites for further information. See for example this useful tool to op-out of any Google Analytics tracking.
