Privacy and Cookies
Riando is very discreet with your registration details.

Cookies on Riando
Around June 5, 2012, new regulations came into effect with regard to the use of so-called “cookies” on web pages. These rules are included in Article 11.7a of the Telecommunications Act (Tw). The new regulations also concern your privacy. Because we consider your privacy very important, we would like to inform you about this on this page.
Because the new cookie legislation is not yet fully clear to all authorities how it will work in practice, Riando will continue to follow all developments closely and will make every effort to continue to comply with the new cookie legislation.
What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed on a computer, phone or tablet. The cookies are read by the browser (including Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox) when opening an internet page. The cookie maker determines which text files he places in the relevant cookie.
As long as you do not enter any personal data on the site you visit as a user, the cookie cannot contain this information. There are direct and indirect cookies, also known as first and third party cookies. Cookies are in principle not dangerous; they are not computer programs and cannot be used to spread computer viruses.
Type of cookies
3.1 First party cookie
With a first-party (direct) cookie, the website in question places a cookie on the user who opens the website. First-party cookies serve different purposes. One of the goals is, for example, remembering the user’s login name and remembering items of selected items in a shopping cart.
3.2 Third-party cookie
A third-party cookie “tracks” a user across different websites over a longer period of time and can thus build a “profile” of a user. These cookies are often used for targeted online advertisements. An ad network then places a cookie on a user’s computer, phone, or tablet through a third-party site. This cookie can be read by the network on the various websites located in the advertising network.
3.3 Sharing with social media networks
You undoubtedly already have experience with companies that place cookies on your computer, tablet or phone. This happens, for example, when you share products or content from such a site with friends through social networking sites (such as Twitter or Facebook). For more information, please refer to:
