Cookies serve many functions. For example, they can help remember your preferences or analyse how well the website is performing.

For example, Bogaerts & Groenen advocaten might use performance cookies to keep track of which pages are most popular, which method of linking between pages is most effective and to determine why some pages are receiving error messages. Bogaerts & Groenen advocaten uses Google Analytics for these analytical activities. The information obtained, including the IP address of your computer, will be transferred to and stored by Google on servers in various countries, including but not limited to the United States.
