Cookies to conduct research and test improvements

Business Lease constantly tests (parts of) its website in order to be able to offer the best possible user experience. These tests allow us to adapt the website to the wishes and user experiences of our visitors.

Cookies to measure media deployment

Business Lease keeps track of how many and which ads have been shown to you in order to establish whether you clicked on a particular ad. Business Lease uses online ads to bring its services to the attention of potential users. It prefers to do so in as targeted a way as possible, in order to keep costs down and not show you any unnecessary ads. To this end, Business Lease uses Google Adwords, Google Dynamic Remarketing, Facebook Custom Audiences (Business Lease does not share its customer database with Facebook), Microsoft Bing Ads and DoubleClick (by Google). In this way, we are able to advertise in a targeted way and keep costs down.

These cookies make it possible to:

  • Keep track of which ads you have already seen. This avoids you being shown the same ads too often.
  • Keep track of how many visitors click on our ads.
  • Keep track of how many visitors buy one of our services after they have clicked on an ad. This is necessary in order to be able to analyze the effectiveness of ads.
  • Keep track of whether you have already bought particular services from us. In that case, you will not be shown any unnecessary ads.
  • Even if you don’t accept cookies, you may still encounter our ads online. This is because not all ads use cookies. Cookies do enable us to show you more relevant ads and avoid showing you unnecessary ads.
