COOKIES USED ON THE WEBSITE

By clicking ‘Yes’ on the cookie banner, you give your consent to HEINEKEN to place and/or read cookies. HEINEKEN uses several different types of cookies:1) functional cookies, 2) analytics cookies, and 3) advertising cookies. Some of these are session cookies which are temporary and allow us to link your actions during a browser session. Session cookies are erased when you close the browser. Other cookies are persistent cookies which remain on your device for the period of time specified in the cookie. The Website uses cookies for the following purposes:

  • FUNCTIONAL COOKIES
    Functional cookies are essential and help you navigate the Website. They enhance the user friendliness of the Website for visitors. These cookies make sure that you only have to pass the age-gate once and that your basket is saved during all the steps of your checkout process. These cookies also help to support website security and basic functionality.

  • ANALYTICS COOKIES
    Analytics cookies help us to understand the behaviour of our visitors and the usage of the Website in an aggregated manner. For instance, we can use these cookies to gain insight into how our visitors use our Website. This means we can find out what works and what doesn’t, it allows us to continuously improve the Website, and measure how effective our advertising and communication is.

    We use Google Analytics cookies to obtain an overall view of visitor habits and visitor volumes, and to help improve the overall experience on our website. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser as described above. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB#.

    Google Analytics Help pages.

  • ADVERTISING COOKIES
    Advertising cookies will remember your product and page preferences and in general that you visited the Website. We strive to provide you with advertisements relevant to you and your interests on other online platforms, where available on the basis of your visits and surfing behaviour on our Website and other third party websites. Based on these interests, we develop a segmented profile and then adapt the content and the advertisements on our website for various groups of customers. Third parties that set cookies via our website may also try to find out what your interests are in this way, and this information may also be used to present you with content or advertisements that appear more likely to be of interest to you on other, non-HEINEKEN websites. In this case, the information about your current website visit may be combined with information from previous visits to websites other than ours. These advertising cookies are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of advertisements.

    Even if no advertising cookies are used, please note that you will be provided with advertisements on our site; however, these advertisements will not be tailored to your interests. These advertisements can, for instance, be modified according to the content of the website. You can compare this type of content-related Internet advertisements with advertising on television. If, say, you are watching a cookery programme on TV, you will often see an advertisement about cooking products during the advert breaks while this programme is on.

    Third party social networks (e.g. Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn) may also place cookies. This enables you to share content of the Website on social networks. These third parties may use cookies for their own purposes. HEINEKEN has no influence over how these social media networks make use of your data. For more information regarding the cookies set by the social media networks please refer to their own privacy and cookie policies.

Please be aware that your browser settings may not offer you the same ease of use as the option to withdraw consent on our website.
