What is a cookie?
When offering services via our platform we or a third party can place cookies. A cookie is a small data file that your browser places on your computer or mobile device. Cookies can be “persistent” or “session” cookies. Persistent cookies remain on your computer when you have gone offline, while session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your web browser. The third party cookies of third parties are installed by third-party websites, such as advertisers. They gather data about your browsing habits, and allow them to track you across multiple websites.
Cookies we use
Cookies can be categorised by the role they fulfil on our platform:
Functional cookies are essential in order to enable you to use and move around our platform and to ensure that our platform functions properly.
Analytical cookies are used to collect information on visitor behaviour (e.g. the pages you view most often) to optimise the usability of the platform.
Advertising cookies are used to follow browsing behaviour over a longer period of time across various websites. These cookies build individual user profiles according to their interests. Based on these interests, the content of the advertisements on our website will be adapted for different visitor groups.
Social cookies are used to enable logged on users of selected social media sites to directly share content from the platform.
You can use the settings within your browser to control the cookies that are set on your computer or mobile device. To learn more, please look at the cookie settings available in your specific web browser(s). The links below will take you to your web browser’s manual.
You can also visit www.youronlinechoices.eu for details on how to remove cookies of specific parties and for further information on cookies generally.
However, please be aware that cookies are important to many aspects of the platform. If you set your browser to reject cookies, you may not be able to enjoy all of the features of the platform.
You can prevent Google’s processing of the data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and your use of our website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install. For more information about Google Analytics and privacy, please visit https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Our platform uses social plugins (“plugins”) from different social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Instagram and Pinterest. With the help of these plugins, you can, for example, share content or recommend products. The plugins are deactivated by default and therefore do not send any data.
By clicking on the “Enable Social Media” button you can activate the plugins. The plugins can of course be deactivated with one click again. When these plugins are enabled, your browser connects directly to the servers of the respective social network as soon as they access any of our platforms. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from the social network to your browser and integrated into it by the platform.
If you do not want social networks to collect data about you through active plugins, you can either disable the social plugins s or choose the option “Block third-party cookies” in your browser settings.
