Cookie statement

When you visit a website, it often places a text file on your computer, tablet or cell phone. This is called a cookie. Captin’s website also uses cookies. Below you can read why we do so and when, and you can indicate whether you give us permission to place certain types of cookies via Change cookie settings. If you do not give permission, we will place a ‘No-follow cookie’. This ensures that only cookies are placed on your computer or mobile device that are necessary for the website to function. No consent is required for this.

What do cookies do?

A cookie ensures that the users of a website are distinguished from each other. This makes websites easier to use. For example, cookies allow you to stay logged in to a website or remember your preferences, such as location and language settings. If you store online, they keep track of your digital shopping cart. Website owners may also use cookies to collect information about website usage in order to improve the site. Furthermore, some cookies make it possible to track your browsing habits. This allows websites and advertisers to learn something about your preferences, allowing them to show more relevant ads.

Cookies are anonymous; they are not used to store your private information, such as email address or phone number.

Who can set cookies?

Cookies can be set by the site you visit or by other websites that manage content displayed on the page you visit, such as advertisers.

Why does Captin use cookies?

We want you to be able to use our website in the best way possible. To that end, we place cookies. We distinguish three types of cookies: functional (necessary) cookies, cookies to collect information about the use of the website and cookies to offer you specific information.

Cookies to make the site work
Some cookies are necessary to make the website work properly. For example, Captin works with cookies: a cookie assesses whether you are logged in and recognizes you as the same user as soon as you go to another page within the website, so that you remain logged in. And by placing a cookie on your computer, we can remember your username. You then log in faster next time. Of course, we never store passwords or private data.

Cookies for website research
We use cookies to improve the website. We study how visitors use our website. For example, we measure how often web pages are visited and where visitors spend the most time, whether they drop out when filling out a form, what keywords they use, and so on. We measure this with software from Google Analytics. Based on this information, we can better adapt the structure, navigation and content of the website to visitors so that they can find what they are looking for easier and faster. We do not trace the reports back to individuals.

Can you disable cookies?

Yes, you can. Cookies specific to this website can be turned off via the Change cookie settings link above.

Please note that you must adjust the settings separately for each browser and computer you use.
