Cookie overview Yeet!

At Yeet! we use, next to essential cookies, functional and analytical cookies that are placed by Google Analytics & Hubspot.

Google Analytics is a marketing tool we use at Yeet! to measure statistics about visitors to our website. For example, cookies are used to monitor when our website is visited, which pages are visited and for how long the website is visited. These cookies do not store any information that can identify you as a person, but are totally anonymised. You can disable these analytical cookies any time you want.

Hubspot is a tool we use for functional purposes (like the proper functioning of the chat and remembering the chosen language of the website) and analytical purposes (like monitoring the number of visitors to our website). In addition to this, HubSpot places essential cookies to guarantee, for example, the security of the website and remember your cookie settings.
