European law requires companies that place cookies on visitors' computers via websites to obtain their 'consent' after clearly and fully explaining how cookies are used on the websites.
Partly because of this, Mieke Janssens, Managing Director of the Shantishop, has determined an appropriate strategy to obtain permission for the cookies used on this website. Certain types of cookies may qualify for legal exemptions and when they do, we do not need to ask permission for such cookies.
This is why Shantishop has opted for tacit consent, which allows us to derive consent when cookies are not refused by visitors (via opt-out), after we have prominently announced them and provided simple, readily available cookie settings at a finely meshed level. This enables visitors to accept or reject the cookies used on the website.
Cookies are files or pieces of information that can be stored on your computer (or on other Internet-enabled devices, such as a smartphone or tablet) when you visit the Shantishop website. A cookie usually contains the name of the website from which the cookie came, the "lifetime" of the cookie (i.e. how long the cookie will remain on your computer/device) and a value, which usually consists of a randomly generated unique number.
There are two types of cookies that may be used on the Shantishop site: session cookies' and 'persistent cookies'. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your computer/device until you leave the Shantishop site. A persistent cookie remains on your computer for much longer or until it is manually deleted (how long the cookie remains on your device will depend on the duration or 'lifetime' of the specific cookie and the settings of your browser).n 'blijvende cookies'.
Some of the pages you visit may also collect information through pixel tags (also known as clear GIFs) that can be shared with third parties that directly support our promotional activities and website development. However, the information is not personally identifiable, although it may be linked to your personal information.
