What are Cookies?

A cookie is a small file attachment, which is placed in the browser of your computer or on your mobile device. So-called “first party cookies” are cookies controlled by the company, which operates the domain on which the cookies are placed. Our cookies are therefore “first party cookies”. Whenever we allow third parties to use cookies through the web pages and apps (in following referenced as “Products”) of us, these cookies are “third party cookies”.

In addition to cookies, other comparable tracking technologies may be used. For example, they include tracking pixels (called pixel tags, web bugs, or GIFs), tracking URLs, local storage objects (LSO) or software developer kits (SDKs). A tracking pixel is a tiny graphic only one pixel in size which is sent either via a web page request, in an app, or in an advertisement to your computer. Pixels can be used to request data from your device, for example your type of device or your operating system, the IP address, and the time of your visit. Pixels are also used to operate and access cookies in your Browser. Tracking URLs can be used to determine via which referring website our Products are visited. LSO works in a similar manner as cookies, but the information is stored locally on your browser. SDKs, however, are small code components within apps, which work in a manner similar to cookies and tracking pixels.

For the purposes of the present rules regarding cookies, all of these technologies are collectively referred to as “cookies”.
Depending on their function and their intended use, cookies can be divided into four categories: Strictly Necessary Cookies, Functional Cookies, Performance Cookies, and Targeting Cookies.
