We analyse how effective our campaigns are, based on your behaviour. We look at your (re)actions to figure this out
Third-party social media cookies
These are cookies that enable the functionalities of social media websites. One example would be Google maps, with an interactive route description and a 'like' button for Facebook or for the exchange of information, like sharing messages/posts and for watching videos via social media.
The KingsCare website provides access to different social media sites, including but not limited to Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn and Pinterest. With these social media cookies, you can share or recommend information on the KingsCare website with others. When you land on a page that displays a social media button, and you click on it, the social media party will save cookies on your computer or mobile device. These cookies serve to collect information about your browser and about the websites that you visited via your IP address.
KingsCare uses these cookies to keep track of how many and which KingsCare and/or third-party advertisements you have seen via the KingsCare website
KingsCare uses so-called retargeting or remarketing technologies on the KingsCare website. This way, we can present you with interesting and personalised offers. To do this, KingsCare stores cookies that make it possible to track your surfing behaviour on the KingsCare website and to create a profile of this behaviour.
KingsCare can show you personalised advertisements on third-party websites, based on this profile. Conversely, this also applies to other parties, like media offices and advertising networks, that place advertisements on the KingsCare website. They store advertisement cookies via the KingsCare website.
Cookies for the KingsCare website, preferences and interests
These cookies remember your preferences and interests based on your website visits. Based on this information, we sometimes adjust the content of the KingsCare website, at your next visit.
Apart from using and storing cookies, KingsCare also reads information from your browser and mobile device, without the use of a cookie. Therefore, KingsCare collects information about your computer and mobile device's (technical) characteristics and about the software that you use, like the type of operating system, the browser settings, the installed plug-ins, the time zone and the screen size. KingsCare uses this information to be able to track your surfing behaviour and to tailor its services even better to your use.
