Topicus uses cookies on the website. Cookies are small text files which are placed by a website on a PC, tablet or mobile phone.


In June 2012, the so-called Cookie Law came into force. This means that every website that measures visitor behavior and records data using cookies (and that is virtually all websites) must comply with the Cookie Law. This law is applicable for all websites in the Netherlands and websites that focus on the Dutch market. In short, the Cookie Law means that a party that places cookies through its website on the computer of its visitors must inform these visitors about it and, in some cases, have to obtain permission in advance.
