What is cookie consent
If you visit one of our websites for the first time, you will see our Cookie Banner where you can execute choice and control over the cookies we transfer to your device.
Cookies are small text files which are sent to your device (computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet) by the website you visit. Cookies are stored on your device in your browser’s file directory. Your browser sends these cookies back to the website each time you revisit it so that it can recognise your device and improve your user experience on each subsequent visit. Cookies allow us to do things such as tailor a website so that it gives you a more personalised experience or to store your password so that you do not need to re-enter it every time.
Please note that certain functions of our website may no longer work or work not correctly without cookies. If you want to learn more about cookies and how they work, please visit: www.allaboutcookies.org or: www.youronlinechoices.eu
Depending on their function and intended purpose, cookies can be assigned to the following categories:
Necessary cookies are required to navigate our websites and operate basic website functions. Examples for necessary cookies are login cookies, or cookies that remember your cookie settings. Without these cookies in place, basic website functionality will suffer. Necessary cookies are always active and will be placed without your consent.
To the extent that information processed in connection with strictly necessary cookies should qualify as personal data, the legal ground for that processing is EHG’s legitimate interest to operate the website (Art. 6 (1) lit. (f) GDPR).
Statistical cookies, sometimes known as analytics cookies, collect information on your usage of our websites. They identify your internet browser, operating system, visited websites, duration and number of website visits, previously visited website, most commonly visited websites and any errors may you experienced. The information collected is aggregated and anonymous. It does not allow a personal identification. It only serves the purpose of evaluating and enhancing the user experience of our websites. To the extent that information processed in connection with performance cookies should qualify as personal data, the legal ground for that processing is your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. (a) GDPR).
Preference cookies enable a website to store information and options that you have already previously entered (for example, username, language settings, layout settings, contact preferences or your location) in order to offer you improved personalised functions. They are also used to enable requested functions, like playing videos.
To the extent that information processed in connection with functional cookies should qualify as personal data, the legal ground for that processing is your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. (a) GDPR).
Marketing cookies are used to offer more relevant and interest-specific content to you, and to measure the efficiency of a marketing campaign. They register if you have visited one or more of our websites together with information about your activity on our website pages. Such information may be shared with third parties, e.g. for example our marketing campaign platform.
Legal basis for the processing of personal data in connection with targeting cookies (if any) is your consent (Art. 6 (1) lit. (a) GDPR).
