Cookie policy

In order for our website '' to work properly, we place cookies on your computer or mobile device.

What are cookies?

A text file stores information, such as your language preference for a website. When you visit the website later, this cookie is sent to the website again. That way the website recognises your browser and can remember your language preference, for example.

Cookies also usually have an expiry date. Some cookies, for example, are automatically deleted when you close your browser (so-called session cookies), while others remain on your computer for a longer period of time, sometimes even until you delete them manually (so-called permanent cookies).

Our 'Privacy Statement' page tells you who to contact about our cookies or how to file a complaint.

Which cookies do we use and why?

The FPS Social Security, which is the administrator of this website, uses three types of cookies on

  • essential cookies;
  • functional cookies;
  • analysis cookies.

The FPS Social Security uses essential and functional cookies to manage the content of its website. These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of this website. You cannot refuse these cookies if you want to visit our websites.

The FPS Social Security also uses "Matomo" for analytical purposes. This analysis tool measures website visits. In order to collect additional useful information, this analysis tool places cookies which we use to measure the website visits (traffic). This enables us to know, among other things, how many times a particular page is read. We only use this information to improve the content of our website or as a starting point for a new campaign on a particular subject of interest.

For this analysis tool, we use a Matomo-Cloud, an external partner that has both its organisation and the underlying data centres in Europe and is fully committed to GDPR compliance and respect for privacy. For the use of cookies for analytical purposes, your prior consent is requested.

These cookies will therefore only be installed on your device after you have given your consent. If you do not give your consent, only limited visitor statistics are collected without cookies being installed.
