Our use of Cookies


What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that websites put on a user’s computer hard disk drive, when they visit that specific website. You can think of a cookie as an identification card that is uniquely yours. Its job is to give the website information on your online behaviour on that specific website. Websites can only access and read their own cookies. While it is possible to misuse a cookie in cases where personal data is stored in the file, cookies by themselves are not malicious nor can they carry viruses.
NOTE: Amsterdam Travel Guide does not use cookies that store personal data!
