In this Cookie Statement the following terms are defined as follows:

  1. Unicorn NV, a company organized and existing under the laws of Belgium, with its registered offices at Baron August de Becker-Remyplein 27, 3010 Leuven and registered with Crossroadsbank for Enterprises under number 0452.046.427;
  2. Website: the website of Unicorn, www.unicorngroup.be, and derivative websites developed and administered by Unicorn.
  3. Personal Data: Any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.
  4. Cookies: Cookies are small data or text files that are placed and then stored on a computer or mobile device when visiting a website.

1. Cookies

Unicorn strives to provide you with clear information about how cookies are used on the Website and when they are stored on your device (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) in order to make your visit to the Website more pleasant and to better meet your needs and adjust your visit to your preferences.

Cookies help Unicorn to optimize a visit to the Website by performing a number of useful tasks, such as improving the security of the Website and the overall user experience. For instance, the Website can remember the pages you visited and your preferences (such as language) so you are not required to fill these in each time you visit the Website. Other cookies allow an analysis of certain information, such as the number of visits to a Website. Some other cookies are used for marketing purposes.

  • Cookies can therefore be divided up according to their purpose:
    There are Functional Cookies: these are strictly necessary so that the Website can function, and you cannot refuse these Cookies. Functional Cookies also ensure that a service requested by you can be provided, such as remembering your preferences (e.g. language).
  • There are also Marketing Cookies: these enable, for example, sharing via social media, or the personalisation of the advertisements shown to you. Before these Cookies are placed, your consent will be asked for in the banner.
  • Your consent will also be asked for Statistical Cookies. These types of Cookies are intended to analyse and be able to improve the browsing experience, for example by measuring the number of visits to the Website..

Cookies can also be categorised by lifespan. For example, there are Session Cookies, whose lifetime is limited to the duration of the session – i.e. until when the browser is closed. There are also Permanent Cookies.
A final distinction then concerns who sets the Cookie: First-Party Cookies are set by the owner of a website’s domain, in this case Unicorn through the Website. Third-Party Cookies are set by others than the owner of a website’s domain. Unicorn therefore has no access to or control over these Cookies or other means of collecting data. Please read the respective privacy statements of these third-party cookie providers.

Following types of Cookies may be set by Unicorn or by third parties:
