ADVERTISMENTS - COOKIES TO SHOW ADVERTISMENTS
EHF focuses on the sale of products. To stimulate sales, we place advertisements and affiliate banners on various other websites, including Facebook and Google. We try to make the advertisements and banners as good and relevant as possible. Advertising space is purchased directly, but also from media agencies and ad networks. They then act as intermediaries between website owners and advertisers.
The cookies make it possible to:
To keep track of how many orders take place via the advertisement for the purpose of settlement with the party from which the advertising space is purchased
To keep track of which affiliate website the visitor has come from (directly linked or via coupon code) so that a possible discount can be passed on to the customer, as well as a commission for the affiliate.
Due to the way the internet and websites work, we may not always have insight into the cookies placed by third parties via our website. This is particularly the case if our web pages contain so-called embedded elements; these are texts, documents, images, or videos stored by other parties, displayed on, in, or via our website.
