1. Cookies

A cookie is a small text file that is saved on the hard drive of your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. This cookie is set on your device by the website itself (“first party cookies”) or by partners of the website (“third party cookies”). This cookie identifies your device using a unique identification number when you return to the website and it stores information regarding your web browsing behaviour. 


There are various types of cookies, depending on their purpose: there are essential or strictly necessary cookies and non-essential cookies (functional, analytical and targeting cookies).

The Belgian Electronic Communications Act of June 13, 2005 contains certain provisions regarding cookies and the use thereof on websites. The Act is a transposition of the European ePrivacy Directive, which implies that the cookie legislation can be implemented differently in other European Union member states. VIAA primarily focuses on the Belgian market and therefore follows the Belgian and European legislation concerning cookies.

2. Purpose and utility of cookies

3. Types of cookies used by VIAA

We distinguish the following types of cookies:

  • Essential or strictly necessary cookies:
These cookies are essential for the website performance and cannot be disabled in our systems. They are usually only set in response to your actions, for example when you set up privacy preferences, sign in or complete forms.

  • Non-essential cookies:
These cookies are not essential for the website performance, but they do help us provide the user with an optimized and personalized browsing experience.

  • Functional cookies:
These cookies enable the website to offer optimized functionality and personalization. 

  • Analytical cookies:
These cookies enable us to track visits and browsing on the website, in order to measure and optimize the website performance. They help us identify which pages are most and least popular and how visitors browse through the website.

  • Targeting cookies:
These cookies can be set by marketing partners via our website. They can be used by those companies to create a profile of your interests and to show you relevant advertisement on other websites.


On the one hand, we use our own cookies (the so-called ‘First Party Cookies’) and on the other hand, we use cookies of carefully selected partners (the so-called ‘Third Party Cookies’) with whom we collaborate and who also advertise our services on their website.
