Cookies, or similar techniques, that we use
We use Google Analytics to gain insight into the use of the website. This is processed for this purpose:

  • Location data
  • Information about your activities on our website
  • Internet browser and device type

We only use technical and functional cookies. And analytical cookies that do not infringe your privacy. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer, tablet or smartphone the first time you visit this website. The cookies we use are necessary for the technical operation of the website and for your ease of use. They also enable us to optimise our website.

We do not use 'behavioural targeting' which allows you to see special content based on your click behaviour; your surfing behaviour remains completely anonymous. Data from contact forms are never processed or stored in Analytics.

IP addresses are masked and data is not shared.
We have set up Google Analytics in accordance with privacy legislation, so that no prior consent of the user is required. Local Experts has a processing agreement with Google. In addition, Google Analytics has been set up in such a way that IP addresses are made anonymous, so that data can never be traced back to you or your IP address. Furthermore, no information is shared with Google or other parties from the Analytics account of Local Experts. This makes the Analytics cookie of Local Experts a non-privacy sensitive first-party cookie that is needed to guarantee the quality and security of Local Experts.

If you prefer to block the Analytics script completely, you can download an opt-out plugin for Google Analytics here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout. With this plugin, your visit no longer counts towards the statistics of all websites that use Google Analytics.

In addition, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the data processing or to object to the processing of your personal data by Local Experts Amsterdam. You may send a request for inspection, correction, deletion, data processing of your personal data or a request to withdraw your consent or objection to the processing of your personal data to info@local-experts.com. To ensure that the request for inspection has been made by you, we ask you to enclose a copy of your proof of identity with the request. In this copy, make your passport photo, MRZ (machine readable zone, the strip with numbers at the bottom of the passport), passport number and Burgerservicenummer (BSN) black. This is to protect your privacy. We will respond to your request as soon as possible, but within four weeks.
