SII Belgium wants to ensure that the website is easy to use and reliable. This sometimes involves placing small amounts of information on your computer, including small files which are known as cookies.
What is a cookie & what is it used for?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
These pieces of information are used to improve our services for you by, for example:
- recognizing that you have logged in our applicant’s system and remember it so you don't need to do it for every web page requested
- analyzing how many people have been on our site, so it can be improved. This is done via Google Analytics (_Ga cookie)
