Privacy Policy

The privacy of Eindhoven News’ visitors is very important to us. We also realize that the confidentiality of personal data is important to you. Below, we indicate what types of information we are collecting and what we do with this information.

Twitter
This cookie is placed by Twitter, because so-called Twitter Widgets are integrated into this website. This widget displays the Twitter stream of messages placed by Eindhoven News itself. We use Twitter cookies in order to be able to show the widget. Read more about Twitter’s privacy policy.

Addthis
AddThis cookies are placed through Eindhoven News’ website. We use this service in order to enable you to share articles through social media platforms clicking on the social media buttons. Addthis is responsible for the bar with social media buttons and it places a cookie to map out which websites are visited by the AddThis-service users. Read more about the privacy policy of AddThis.

Log Files
Like most sites, we collect data in our log files. This includes your IP address, your browser information (for example, Firefox or Internet Explorer), your ISP, your browser, the time of your visit and the pages you visited.
Cookies and Web beacons
We sometimes use cookies to store information such as your personal preferences. This way, you do not have to type your name and email address every time you leave a comment. Another example is the information that is stored in a cookie if you have login rights for this site.
We show advertisements of third parties on our site Eindhovennews.nl (for example from Google Adsense). Some of these advertisers use technologies such as cookies and web beacons when advertising on our site.

As a result, these sites also collect information such as your IP address, your ISP, your browser and sometimes whether Flash is installed or not. This information can be used for geo-targeting for example (e.g. jobs in Amsterdam for people in Amsterdam) or for ads based on the sites you previously visited (e.g. cooking commercials if you visited many cooking sites).

DoubleClick DART cookies
It is also possible that DART cookies are used for displaying ads through Google’s DoubleClick. These cookies are placed when you visit a website using Google’s DoubleClick Advertising (including some Google Adsense advertisements). This cookie is used to display ads that match the visitor’s preferences (interest based targeting).
The shown advertisements are possibly related to web sites you visited in the past. For example, if you visited sites about music concerts, you might see ads for music concerts later while you are on a non-related site, such as a football website. DART only uses information which is not identifiable to personal information. It does not keep track of personal data such as name, address, bank account numbers, etc.

Opting out of this service is possible through the following page.
