This Cookie Statement of GlobalFoodHub.com describes which cookies GlobalFoodHub.com uses via the websites managed by GlobalFoodHub.com (and applications (such as, for example, the GlobalFoodHub.com app, hereinafter: “Applications”), and for which these cookies are used.
What are Cookies?
Cookies are small pieces of (text) information that are sent to your browser when you visit the Websites or Applications and are then stored on the hard drive or in the memory of your computer, tablet or mobile phone (hereinafter: “Device”). The browser may return this information on a subsequent visit to the Websites or Applications. The cookies placed via this Website or Application cannot damage your Device or the files stored on it.
Which cookies does GlobalFoodHub.com use and for what purpose?
GlobalFoodHub.com uses three different categories of cookies: (i) functional cookies, (ii), tracking and profiling cookies and (iii) cookies from IAB partners. This is explained below.
GlobalFoodHub.com primarily uses functional cookies. These ensure that the Websites and Applications work properly. These cookies are necessary to provide you with the services and functionalities you have asked for. For example, functional cookies ensure that you do not have to log in again on every page after logging in to the Websites or Applications. Functional cookies also remember the products you place in the shopping cart and information that you include in (order) forms. These cookies also ensure that you can make payments via the Websites and Applications. It is not possible to unsubscribe from functional cookies, these are activated by default.
Functional cookies from GlobalFoodHub.com
GlobalFoodHub.com offers you the option to select a GlobalFoodHub.com store on the Websites and/or the Applications. To prevent you from having to select this store again on your next visit, GlobalFoodHub.com places a cookie that remembers your choice for the store.
It is also possible that you do not select a store on your first visit. In that case, GlobalFoodHub.com wants to prevent you from being asked to select a store each time you visit. GlobalFoodHub.com therefore places a cookie so that you are not asked to select a store for seven days.
When you have created a My GlobalFoodHub.com Account, GlobalFoodHub.com uses the name you provide to greet you personally on your next visit. To make this possible, GlobalFoodHub.com also places account-related information in cookies.
GlobalFoodHub.com uses 'cookie consent' to store your cookie preferences. 'Cookie consent' places functional cookies to save your preferences.
GlobalFoodHub.com uses Google Tag Manager to manage your cookie preferences.
GlobalFoodHub.com uses A/B Testing via Google Optimize cookies. Google Optimize performs anonymized sampling for user experience improvements.
GlobalFoodHub.com collects your feedback about the Websites and/or Applications via an anonymized version of a feedback cookie, if you cooperate. With the help of this functional cookie, GlobalFoodHub.com can make adjustments to the Websites, Applications and/or its services if necessary.
Functional analytics cookies
GlobalFoodHub.com uses Google Analytics cookies to collect web statistics about the use and visits of the Websites and/or Applications. These cookies anonymously record your use of the website or app. This data is then processed by Google and the results are provided to GlobalFoodHub.com. In this way GlobalFoodHub.com gains insight into the way in which the Websites and Applications are used and can, if necessary, make adjustments to the Websites, Applications and/or its services on the basis of that data. In this context, GlobalFoodHub.com has concluded a processing agreement with Google. GlobalFoodHub.com masks the last octet of your IP address that is sent to Google and has disabled the 'data sharing' option within the Google Analytics environment when no tracking and profiling consent has been given. Because GlobalFoodHub.com has taken these measures, the cookies from Google Analytics can be regarded as functional cookies.
GlobalFoodHub.com does not use other Google services in combination with Google Analytics cookies, unless you have given permission for this.
GlobalFoodHub.com also uses its own analytics system for analytical purposes. At the functional cookie level, this only concerns anonymized data collection.
The functional cookies remain active for a maximum period of two (2) years after placement.
Tracking cookies: via the Websites and Applications, cookies can be placed on your Device by both GlobalFoodHub.com and third parties. These cookies follow your internet behavior and give GlobalFoodHub.com and the third parties the opportunity to show you advertisements, among other things. Access is also provided via the Websites and Applications to various social media. With the help of social plug-ins you can share information on the websites with others or recommend it. When you come to a web page or app screen showing the social plug-ins of these social media, cookies are placed on your device by third parties. Tracking cookies also include the Google Analytics cookies that GlobalFoodHub.com uses, but which are not anonymous and therefore cannot be regarded as functional.
GlobalFoodHub.com places, for example, the following tracking cookies: Usabilla profile tracking cookies, Lucky Orange tracking cookies and Member get Member cookies.
Profiling cookies: GlobalFoodHub.com uses re-targeting/re-marketing technologies on its Websites and Applications. The purpose of these technologies is to be able to make you interesting and tailor-made offers. To realize this, GlobalFoodHub.com places cookies on your device via the websites and apps that make it possible to track your surfing behavior on the Websites and to build a profile of your surfing behavior. Based on this profile, GlobalFoodHub.com can show you tailor-made advertisements on third-party websites. When building your profile, personal data is also collected. View the Privacy Statement of GlobalFoodHub.com for this. Profiling cookies also include the Google Analytics cookies that GlobalFoodHub.com uses, but which are not anonymous and therefore cannot be regarded as functional.
GlobalFoodHub.com, for example, places the following profiling cookies: Google Ads tracking cookies, LinkedIn ads marketing tracking cookies, Pinterest ads marketing tracking cookies, Facebook ads tracking cookies and similar profiling cookies.
Within the category of tracking and profiling cookies, GlobalFoodHub.com also uses affiliate marketing cookies, such as the Tradetracker affiliate conversion tracking cookie.
Accepting profiling cookies when visiting the Websites and using the Applications is independent of the option to opt for a personalized shopping experience on www.GlobalFoodHub.com.com. If you do accept the profiling cookies and do not opt for a personal shopping experience on GlobalFoodHub.com.com, the profiling cookies will not ensure that you receive personal shopping suggestions or shopping lists based on your (purchasing) behavior on GlobalFoodHub.com.com . You will only receive personal shopping suggestions or shopping lists if you agreed to the personal shopping experience when you created your GlobalFoodHub.com account.
The Google Analytics cookies remain active for a maximum period of two (2) years after placement. The other tracking and profiling cookies remain active for an average period of six (6) months after placement.

GlobalFoodHub.com processes your e-mail address for direct marketing purposes based on its legitimate interest to be able to send you the newsletter.
GlobalFoodHub.com uses tokenization. This includes the following. When you pay with a debit card, the unique number in the chip of your debit card is pseudonymised and converted into a code ("a token") by means of a hash and cryptographic encryption. It is important to mention that this is not the number of your payment account, it is a unique number that is given with each individual payment card. The original unique number of the debit card can no longer be derived from the token. The transaction data of the purchase is linked to the token, which consists of the chosen payment method, the store (location), the amount, the products and the time of the purchase. In this way, transactions made with the same debit card can be linked without us being able to (directly) trace these purchases back to you. The database with transaction data created in this way is only used by GlobalFoodHub.com on a pseudonymised and aggregated level.
Through tokenization we can improve our customer proposition and strengthen our brand (formula) by realizing a range that is better geared to customer groups. Moreover, through tokenization we can make more targeted purchases, which leads to less waste, which means we reduce our ecological footprint.
For GlobalFoodHub.com these are legitimate interests to process the pseudonymised data - the tokens - exclusively for those purposes, which we have weighed against the limited infringement this may have on your privacy. Only a pseudonymised - and in practice not traceable by GlobalFoodHub.com - number of your debit card is used and the processing only concerns analyzes at an aggregated level. The data collected in this way via tokenization is emphatically not used to approach you personally, including for direct marketing activities. You will not be profiled and we will not send you personalized offers as referred to in the “Personal Offers” section.
For the purposes mentioned above, trends from one year are compared with trends from the previous year. The tokens, linked to transactions made in those two years, are then processed within 13 weeks, after which the relevant tokens are deleted.
- Personal offers and recommendations
A profile is built on the basis of the Information collected by GlobalFoodHub.com. Based on this profile, GlobalFoodHub.com tries to tailor its offers and recommendations to you as best as possible.

For example, based on your profile, GlobalFoodHub.com can also send you personal recipes.
For this we use, among other things:
- The products you purchase
