All about cookies

What are cookies?

Do you visit a PostNL website or use our app? Then we use cookies. These are small text files that we store on your computer, phone or tablet. The information contained in these files allows us to recognise you when you revisit our website at a future date. For example, we remember your login details and which language you have set, so we will be able to help you better and faster next time. 

In addition to cookies, there are other technologies that we use to store and read information on your computer, tablet or mobile phone. An example of this is local storage. Since this works in a similar way, we will also refer to them as 'cookies' for the sake of convenience. We use various technologies for placing cookies, such as Javascript and tracking pixels. In our app, we use software development kits (SDKs).

No cookies?

Would you prefer us not to store information about you and your device settings? In that case, you can change this yourself. The changes you make for the website do not automatically apply to our app and vice versa. You will have to set them separately.
