Cookie policy

This Cookie Notice explains how euNetworks Group Limited and its group entities and subsidiaries (available at eunetworks.com/companies/ or eunetworks.de/firmeninformation/) (“euNetworks” or “we”, “us” or “our”) use cookies and similar technologies to support your journey through our  Websites (“Websites“). It explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small data files that are placed on your computer or mobile device when you visit a  Websites. Website owners can use cookies for a variety of reasons that can include enabling their  Websites to work (or work more efficiently), providing personalised content and advertising, and creating  Websites analytics.

Cookies set by the Website owner (in this case, euNetworks) are called “first party cookies”. Only the  Websites owner can access the first party cookies it sets. Cookies set by parties other than the  Websites owner are called “third party cookies”. Third party cookies are associated with trusted third parties and enable third party features or functionality to be provided on or through the Website [(e.g. analytics [or advertising])].

What about other tracking technologies like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a Websites. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Website or opened an e-mail that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our Website to another, to deliver or communicate with cookies or to improve site performance and to measure the success of e-mail marketing campaigns. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will often impair their functioning. For the sake of simplicity, hereinafter we will only use the term “cookies”, even if other technologies are used.

Why do we use cookies?

We use first party and third party cookies for several reasons. Some cookies are required for technical reasons that are strictly necessary for our Website to operate, and we refer to these as “essential” cookies. Other cookies enable us to provide Website functionality, or to enhance Website’s performance and visitors’ experience by providing them with personalised content and advertising. This is described in more detail below. Additional information can be found in the privacy policy.

The specific types of first and third party cookies served through our Website and the purposes they perform are described in the table below.

What types of cookies are there? On what legal basis are cookies used?

Essential cookies

Without essential cookies, our Websites will not work properly. They are, for example, required to save your privacy settings or log into your customer account. We do not require consent for essential cookies. You can set your browser to block essential cookies. However, this will affect the functionality of this Websites. The legal basis for the use of strictly necessary cookies is usually our legitimate interest. These cookies cannot be deactivated via our privacy settings. However, you can delete these cookies via your browser settings, see below.

Performance Cookies (Statistics, Analytics)

Performance cookies are used to collect information about the use and the performance of the Websites. Visitors can be counted and access sources and visit durations analyzed. The purpose is to detect errors, identify popular or undiscovered offers and improve the user-friendliness of the Websites based on these findings. In addition to the pages visited, information may be collected about the type of browser you are using, your operating system, times, domain names of the previously visited Websites and the time of visit.

Data collected via performance cookies is immediately anonymized, unless otherwise stated. The legal basis is your consent given via the privacy settings, which you can withdraw at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Functional Cookies

With the help of functional cookies, it is possible, for example, to enable social media content or embed videos.

The legal basis is your consent given via the privacy settings, which you can withdraw at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Marketing Cookies (Targeting, Advertising)

Marketing cookies are used to display relevant and interesting online advertisements on our Websites and on third-party Websites. They are also used to regulate the frequency with which an advertisement appears and to measure the effectiveness of advertising measures.

Marketing cookies may also come from our advertising partners and be stored on your device through our Websites. Our advertising partners may use the data to create profiles about your interests in order to display relevant advertising on other partner sites of our advertising partner.

If you do not consent to the use of marketing cookies, you will not be presented with interest-based advertisements.

The legal basis is your consent given via the privacy settings, which you can withdraw at any time. The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Where do the cookies come from? Who receives the data? Is data transferred to third countries?

We use both our own cookies and cookies from partners.

If the cookies come from us, they are so-called “first party cookies”.

If the cookies come from third parties whose services we use, they are referred to as “third party cookies”, even if euNetworks has technically caused this by embedding plugins or other technologies into the source code. Third party cookies are stored on your device via our Websites. The publisher of third party cookies may be able to track your usage patterns online across multiple Websites.

The publishers of third party cookies sometimes come from or process personal data in so-called third countries (countries outside the EU/EEA), in which an appropriate level of data protection is not guaranteed. In third countries, especially the USA, there is a risk that your data will not be processed according to EU standards. In particular, effective legal protection against state access to your personal data is not guaranteed.

For more information on this and whether the publisher processes personal data exclusively on our instructions or also processes your data for its own purposes, please see the data protection statement. You can also find further information in the data protection notices of the publishers.
