Understanding the cookies we use for our website
What are cookies used for?
The use of these cookies is necessary to reinforce the legitimate interests of Kadaster and website visitors. Cookies help to provide a well-functioning website. We provide more information about the cookies we use below.

Analytical cookies to understand web statistics
We use analytical cookies to better understand how our website functions. Google Analytics, Piwik, Hotjar and Siteimprove help us understand key statistics on our visitors’ user experience. We analyse this data, which allows us to tailor the website to visitors even better.
Google Analytics was set up by Kadaster in accordance with the Personal Data Authority’s Guide on the privacy-friendly setup of Google Analytics. This means that the following steps have been taken:
Kadaster has concluded a processing contract with Google.
Kadaster has set up privacy-friendly Google Analytics, which means that the information is kept anonymous as often as possible. The IP address consists of 4 octets of 3 digits each. Kadaster has chosen to mask the last octet of the IP address.
In the standard Google Analytics settings, Kadaster has unselected the ‘share data with Google’ option. This means that the collected information is not shared with Google or others. Moreover, Kadaster has not given Google permission to use the obtained information for other Google services.
Kadaster informs its website visitors about the use of Google Analytics.
Piwik, Hotjar and Siteimprove are set to assign a randomly generated identifier (ID) to generate statistics. The masked IP address is shown to Kadaster as a generated identifier. As a result, visitors are completely anonymous and are only known to Kadaster as ID numbers. Hotjar records mouse movements on the pages in order to understand how visitors browse the website. Hotjar can also collect direct feedback from the visitor in various ways. This includes questions such as: did you find what you were looking for? Is there anything that you still need on the website, etc.
In order to optimise web forms, their completion shall also be recorded. Hotjar is set up in such a way that any email addresses and numerical data entered on web forms are not displayed.
No information that is traceable to the user is transmitted by Piwik, Hotjar or Siteimprove. By using these settings, the consent of website visitors is not required to use these analytical cookies.
