Cookie Policy

Cookies are small data or text files placed on your computer by websites and applications.

The Belgian Act of 13 June 2005 on electronic communications contains provisions on cookies and their use on websites. The Belgian implementation is derived from the EC e-privacy directive, which implies that the use of cookies and cookie legislation varies from one EC member state to the next.

Velleman places an online platform at the disposal of users of the products and services offered by Velleman NV. This platform enables both registered and unregistered individuals to purchase electronic products, components and services. As Velleman NV only services the European market, only the European cookie lagislation applies.
