Effective date: January 03, 2019
I, Herko Coomans, operate the http://www.herkocoomans.nl website. This page informs you how and why I collect, use, and disclosure personal data when you use my website and the choices you have associated with that data.
This is a relatively simple website with only a few technical services that require the exchange of data between your computer and the server this site runs on. I want you to be able to trust my website. This website is proudly powered by WordPress, the popular open source web content management system and is hosted by (MediaTemple), a web hosting company with servers located within and outside of the European Union.
What data do I collect and what for?
First of all, I have done my best to minimize the amount of personal data that is being gathered by this website. But every website gathers data from its visitors to be abkle to serve you the content from this website. Here I will explain what data is being gathered and how, and what this data is used for.
This policy specifically explains how I deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to “remember” you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a “session cookie”) or for multiple repeat visits (using a “persistent cookie”). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as “first party cookies”), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (“third party cookies”).
Both websites and HTML emails may also contain other tracking technologies such as “web beacons” or “pixels.” These are typically small transparent images that provide us with statistics, for similar purposes as cookies. They are often used in conjunction with cookies, though they are not stored on your computer in the same way. As a result, if you disable cookies, web beacons may still load, but their functionality will be restricted.
For more information on the choices you have about the cookies we use, please see the Controlling Cookies section below.
Types of Cookie
The table below explains the types of cookies I use on my website and why I use them.
|Category of cookies||Why I use these cookies|
|Strictly Necessary||These cookies are essential for my website to perform its basic functions. These include those required to allow registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions.|
|Functionality||These cookies are used to store preferences set by users such as account name, language, and location.|
|Security||I use these cookies to help identify and prevent potential security risks.|
|Analytics and Performance||Performance cookies collect information on how users interact with my website, including what pages are visited most, as well as other analytical data. I use these details to improve how my website function and to understand how users interact with them.|
When visiting my website, this is what the cookie collects and stores:
|__cfduid||If you’re logged in (in whatever role the website allows), the logged in user ID is stored in the cookie|
|_icl_current_language||This stores the setting for the language the user has selected to view the content in. This is part of the WordPress MultiLanguage (WPML) plugin|
|_jpp_math_pass||This is the setting that allows a logged in user to skip the math test to prove they’re human and not bots on login. This is a security measure|
|wordpress_[hash_value]||Session content, to identify the choices you have made in this site visit, like your login state, admin status and the expiry time|
|Wpml_browser_redirect_test||Part of the multi-language plugin, setting the root language that the website needs to redirect to if content in your chosen language is not available|

You can opt out of Google Analytics by installing Google’s opt-out browser add-on.
Server data collection
Every webserverver -the computer the website is hosted on- collects data from the technical means people use to collect data from their servers (like visiting my website). This data includes your IP-address, the make and version of the browser you are using to visit my website, the operating system that this browser is running on, and by inference also what device you used to access my website. This data is stored as raw data on the server, and is used to monitor the (mt) services and to diagnose issues if and when they occur. This data is overwritten after a week.
Transfer of data
Your information, including Personal Data, may be transferred to — and maintained on — computers located outside of your state, province, country or other governmental jurisdiction where the data protection laws may differ than those from your jurisdiction.
If you are located outside Netherlands and choose to provide information to us, please note that we transfer the data, including Personal Data, to Netherlands and process it there.
Disclosure Of Data
I may disclose your Personal Data in the good faith belief that such action is necessary to:
- To comply with a legal obligation
- To protect and defend my rights or property
- To prevent or investigate possible wrongdoing in connection with the website
- To protect the personal safety of users of the website or the public
- To protect against legal liability
Security Of Data
The security of your data is important to me, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage is 100% secure. While I strive to use commercially acceptable means to protect your Personal Data, I cannot guarantee its absolute security.
I may employ third party companies and individuals to facilitate my website (“Service Providers”), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform Service-related services or to assist me in analyzing how my website is used.
These third parties have access to your Personal Data only to perform these tasks on my behalf and are obligated not to disclose or use it for any other purpose.
Links To Other Sites
I have no control over and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies or practices of any third party sites or services, but will do my best to select trustworthy third parties.
My website does not address anyone under the age of 18 (“Children”).
I do not knowingly collect personally identifiable information from anyone under the age of 18. If you are a parent or guardian and you are aware that your Children has provided us with Personal Data, please contact us. If I become aware that I have collected Personal Data from children without verification of parental consent, I take steps to remove that information from my servers.
