Cookie Policy


Cookies are text files placed on your computer or mobile device to collect standard Internet log information and visitor behavior information. Different cookies have different purposes: there are essential or necessary cookies and non-essential cookies (functional, analytical and targeting cookies).

The Belgian law concerning electronical communication (13/05/2005) imposes legal requirements for cookies and the use of them on websites. The law transposes the European e-Privacy Directive, which means that the cookie legislation can be implemented differently in other European member states. Additionally, the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) governs the use of cookies that collect personal data or monitor people’s behavior (e.g. whilst browsing online).
GRIT Sports Clinic is committed to complying with all applicable data protection legislation when using cookies on its website.


GRIT Sports Clinic uses essential cookies to ensure the proper functioning of the website, to identify any errors & to remember technical choices (for example, a your choice of language, etc.). We also use optional analytics cookies to improve the website and optimize your visit.


We use the following types of cookies:

a. Essential cookies:

These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be refused, as they are required for your device and our website to communicate. Essential cookies never store personal information: you cannot be
identified as a user, all information is anonymous.

If you still prefer to block these essential cookies, you can do so by disabling the cookies in your browser settings – see section 4 below. However, this may affect how the website functions and we cannot guarantee a smooth browsing session when essential cookies are disabled.
