Un cookie est un petit fichier texte qui peut être conservé sur votre ordinateur lorsque vous visitez des sites Internet.


A cookie, what is that?

Information is stored in a text file, such as your language preference for a website. When you visit the website again later, this cookie is sent again to the website. In this way, the website recognizes your browser and, for example, your language preference can be remembered.

Cookies usually also have an expiration date. For example, some cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser (so-called session cookies), while others remain on your computer for a longer period of time, sometimes even until you delete them manually (so-called permanent cookies).

Why do we use cookies?

The FPS BOSA, which manages this website, uses three types of cookies on the War Heritage Institute website:

  • essential cookies;
  • functional cookies;
  • analyse cookies.

The FPS BOSA uses essential and functional cookies to manage the content of its website. These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of this website. You cannot refuse these cookies if you want to visit our websites.

The FPS BOSA also uses "MATOMO" for analytical purposes. This analysis tool places cookies that we use to measure website visits (traffic). With this we know, among other things, how many times a certain page is read. We only use this information to improve the content of our website or as an approach for a new campaign on a particular topic that is of great interest.

For this analysis tool we use a Matomo Cloud, an external partner that has both its organization and the underlying data centers within Europe and is fully committed to GDPR compliance and respect for privacy. Your prior consent is requested for the use of cookies for analytical purposes. These cookies are therefore only installed on your device after you have given your consent.
