2.What are cookies and what are they for?
2.1. Cookies are small electronic text files that are stored by the browser on the hard drive of your computer or device when you visit and/or consult a website or use a (mobile) application that stores certain user information. Cookie files contain unique codes which, for example, enable your browser to recognize you when you visit the website and thus improve your user experience. Cookies facilitate the interaction between the visitor and the website. They are used to improve the user’s experience and collect statistics amongst visitors to a website. Cookies also ensure that your personal settings and preferences are saved or that image and sound material can be reproduced. Certain cookies may be placed by a third party, e.g. Google Analytics, to measure the use of a website.
2.2. Cookies can help us improve and personalise your experience on our website and ensure that it performs as well as expected. This allows us to improve your experience of using a website, e.g. by tracking your use of our website so that it can be improved to meet your needs. We can also make sure that ads you see online are more relevant to you and your interests.
3.Enabling and disabling cookies – manage
If you disable cookies, however, it is possible that the website may no longer function correctly or certain (graphic) elements or applications on the website may no longer function properly or may not function at all.
4.1. On your first visit or use of the website, information relating to the uses of cookies (with a hyperlink to this policy) will appear in a cookie banner.
Your consent is not required for functional or essential cookies.
Consent, to be granted via the cookie banner, is required for non-functional or non-essential cookies, such as analytical/statistical cookies and tracking/marketing cookies. In that case your consent must:
– be obtained before the cookies are stored. Without your consent cookies cannot be stored;
– be informed, the reason why we inform you about the different cookies via this policy;

4.2. Functional or essential cookies are necessary for the optimal functioning of our website, to display certain graphics, etc. These cookies are technically necessary for the proper functioning and security of the website. These cookies are, therefore, placed without your consent as they are considered to be part of the legitimate interests of EasyPost.
Non-functional or non-essential cookies, on the other hand, are placed for statistical, social and/or commercial purposes and are independent of the technical support of our website. It concerns, for example, the following cookies:
a. Analytical cookies: These cookies are used to compile statistics regarding the number of visitors to the website, the most popular web pages, etc. (e.g. Google Analytics – see below). These cookies reflect how the website is used. This is how EasyPost knows, among other things, how many times a particular page is read, how much time someone spends on our website, etc. Statistical analyses are compiled on the basis of the information we receive in this way. These statistical results enable us to improve the structure, navigation and content of our website and corresponding services. We also use this data to generate general reports about our services or within the context of research in which we participate. No personal data is transmitted in this process. The consent of each visitor is required for the placement of these cookies.
b. Marketing cookies: these cookies are used to personalise online advertising offers.
c. Social media cookies: these cookies enable the inclusion of buttons from social networking sites. The buttons operate using a code originating from these sites. A handy tool to promote web pages such as ‘like’ and ‘pin’.
4.3. If you have provided consent via our website for the use of non-functional cookies, you can change this setting at any time and withdraw your consent. Previously stored cookies will then be deleted. You can do this via [link instructions provided].
You can withdraw your consent for our cookies at any time, even if you have previously given your consent. Please not, however, that if you do not consent to some of our cookies this may have an adverse effect on your user experience.
5.Third party cookies
5.2. First party cookies do not entail a transfer of personal data to third parties, but can make use of a third party processor, e.g. for the compilation of statistics. Your consent is also required for the storage of, for example, first party analytical cookies.
5.3. Third-party cookies allow personal data to be sent to third parties either directly (e.g. via an active component attached to a banner or a spy pixel) or indirectly by setting cookies that are accessible to websites other than those of the advertiser.
For example, we use Google Analytics to collect information on how you use our website. We use the information to compile reports and to help us improve the website.
Google Analytics stores information about, among other things:
- the pages you visit;
- the time spend on each page;
- how you got to the site;
- what you click on while visiting the site.
These securely stored cookies do not collect information that could identify a visitor. Any information collected by these cookies is completely anonymous. We only use such information to improve our website. If you don’t want Google Analytics to track all websites, go to: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.
6.Cookies on our website
6.1. The table under section 6.2 below provides an overview of the cookies we use on our website, why we use them and where they originate from. We also indicate here whether a cookie is a “permanent” or “session” cookie. The difference being that:
- permanent cookies remain on your device between browser sessions. They are activated each time you visit the website that created that particular cookie. For example, if a “permanent cookie” is used on a website to remember your preferred language, you won’t have to choose that language each time you visit or use the website.
- Session cookies enable us to link a user’s actions during a browser session. A browser session starts when you open a browser window and ends when you close it. Session cookies are created temporarily. All session cookies are deleted once you close the browser.
