Cookies on Moxy.be
The Belgian Electronic Communications Act of 13 June 2005 contains certain provisions regarding cookies and their use on websites. The law is a transposition of the European e-Privacy Directive, which means that cookie legislation may be implemented differently in other European Member States.
Moxy is based in Belgium and therefore follows the Belgian legislation on cookies.
On this page you will find more information about what cookies are, which cookies are used by Moxy and how you can influence cookies. We collect data for research purposes in order to gain a better understanding of our customers so that we can tailor our services accordingly.
This website uses “cookies” (a piece of text given by a web server to a visiting browser in the hope and expectation that the browser will return it on a subsequent visit) to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website may be transferred to Moxy’s own secure servers or those of a third party. We use this information to keep track of how you use the website, to compile reports on website activity and to offer other services relating to website activity and internet use.

How do cookies work?
Contrary to what politicians sometimes claim, cookies themselves are neither programs nor files, and technically nothing is stored by the web server on the visitor’s computer. The latter is entirely at the discretion of the browser. In the end, cookies are often stored as a file, but a web server cannot force a browser to actually store cookies or return them on a later visit.
Cookies usually contain the name of the website from which the cookie originates, information about how long a cookie remains on your device and a value that usually consists of a randomly generated unique number.
Cookies can be divided into different categories:
(a) Based on storage time: some cookies are deleted as soon as you leave the website or close the browser. These are also referred to as ‘session cookies’. Other cookies remain stored on your computer or mobile device and help us identify you as a visitor to our website. These are called ‘persistent cookies’.
(b) Based on origin: cookies created by our own website (‘first party cookies’) and cookies created and stored by our partners (social media or otherwise). These are called ‘third party cookies’.
(c) Based on necessity and functionality:
First party cookies: Cookies that you receive for the same domain as you visit are called first-party cookies. When viewing this page, Moxy’s cookies are therefore first-party cookies.
Third-party cookies: It is also possible that a website contains elements of third parties. Well-known examples are embedded videos, advertisements and social media buttons. If cookies are sent with these elements from their own servers, these are called third-party cookies. It is therefore possible that when you visit Moxy you will receive third-party cookies for Facebook.com, Youtube.com and other third-party websites.
(i) ‘Necessary cookies’: These are required for the proper functioning of our website. For example, these are the cookies that allow you to log in.
(ii) ‘Analytical/performance cookies’: These cookies allow us to analyse our web traffic to see how many people use our website and how they navigate our website.
(iii) ‘Functional cookies’: These cookies ‘remember’ the choices you have made on our website to make it more user-friendly and more enjoyable for you to use.
- it is possible to keep track of which advertisements you have already seen in order to prevent you from seeing the same ad over and over again.
- it is possible to keep track of how many unique visitors click on the advertisement
- targeted advertisements can be shown (e.g. a youth product on a youth website)Due to the operation of HTTP and the security surrounding cookies, it is not possible for the first party – in our example Moxy – to influence the sending of third-party cookies.
What are Cookies on Moxy used for?
With cookies it is possible to retrieve information from previous visits during subsequent visits. In practice, this is used, among other things, to record that you are logged in, that you have made certain settings and that you have seen certain site elements before. Cookies that adapt the functioning of the site to your wishes are called functional cookies.
In addition, cookies can also be used to let the site know that a visitor has been on the site before. In this way, statistical data about the use of the website can be collected. A well-known example of this is Google Analytics. This only works with anonymised statistical information that is used by us to analyse and improve the functioning of the site. Information about your visiting behaviour can also be used to tailor advertisements to your interests. Moxy only uses anonymised information about pages that you have previously visited on Moxy.
Visitor profiles created by Moxy using first party cookies will never be shared with third parties and are only used to improve the quality and relevance of Moxy.
Which Cookies do we use on Moxy?
We distinguish the following types of cookies according to their purposes:
Moxy uses the following cookies on its website
- Google Analytics,
- Google Tag Manager,
- Facebook Custom Audience,
Tracking cookies are placed by us on your equipment so that we can recognise your computer when you visit us again. There are two types of tracking cookies: session cookies and permanent cookies. Session cookies allow us to see which parts of the website have been viewed on your computer during a visit. Persistent cookies allow us to recognise your computer when you revisit our website at a later time.
Tracking cookies with our advertisements
With tracking cookies, we collect information about where you have seen the advertisements and which advertisements you have clicked on.
Analytics & heat maps
Through our website, cookies are placed by the companies Adobe, heatmaps and Google. We use these cookies to understand how you use our website. The information collected is used to compile reports and obtain information so that we can improve our website.
Social media buttons
On our website you will find buttons to promote web pages on Google+, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. These buttons work through pieces of code that come from these social networks themselves. By means of this code cookies are placed. We have no influence on this.
Due to the way the internet and websites work, we may not always have insight into the cookies that are placed by third parties via our website. This is particularly the case if our web pages contain so-called ’embedded elements’, such as texts, documents, images or videos stored by another party, but which are displayed on, in or via our website.
Do you encounter cookies on our website that fall into this category (and therefore we have not mentioned above)? Please let us know or contact the relevant third party directly and ask which cookies they have placed, the reason for placing them, the life span of the cookie(s) and how your privacy is safeguarded.
Cookies used by our partners
Our website uses social media plugins. These social media partners use third-party cookies. The following social media partners are used: Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Vimeo and Pinterest. For your information, we also provide links to the relevant cookie policies:
This overview of cookies on Moxy.be is a snapshot. Moxy strives to keep this list as up-to-date as possible. However, due to the non-static nature of the internet and the many (external) parties involved, it is possible that not all current cookies and/or sites can be found directly in this overview.
Which cookies can others place when visiting Moxy?
Moxy also regularly places content from third parties on its website. This is for example the case with the various social media buttons that make it possible to share messages on Moxy via Facebook, Google+, Instagram and LinkedIn.
Cookies are also used when serving out advertisements. These cookies are used to measure how often an advertisement is shown and what interactions are made on or with the advertisement, such as clicking on a banner. By placing such cookies, we can also make use of a so-called frequency cap; such a cap ensures that you come into contact with a certain advertisement a maximum of x times and therefore, for example, you do not see the same video advertisement again and again before starting a video.
Furthermore, advertisers often use a media agency to deliver the campaign for them. In these cases, the media agency often also places cookies to measure and optimise campaigns.
Moxy’s advertising terms and conditions state that cookies from advertisers and media agencies may be used to collect statistics. Moxy also grants limited permission to advertisers and media agencies to recognise you as a visitor to Moxy and other websites and to display more relevant advertisements on that basis. Unfortunately, due to the large number of parties working together in the advertising world, it is not possible to provide a complete list of possible domains.
Disable or reject cookies
By default, most browsers are set to accept cookies, but you can reset your browser to refuse all cookies or to indicate when a cookie is being sent. However, some features and “”services, on our and other websites, may not function correctly if cookies are disabled in your browser.
Without cookies it is almost impossible for us to give you, as a visitor, the best experience when visiting the site. This has to do with analysing web statistics to determine how the site should look and navigate, but also to determine which content is popular and which is not.
