Cookies and other information that we automatically collect
What is a cookie?
Cookies are text files, containing small amounts of information, which are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website or mobile application. They are used to recognise your computer as you move between pages on a website, or when you return to a website or mobile application you have visited previously. Cookies are widely used in order to make platforms work, or to work more efficiently, as well as to provide information to the owners of the platform.
There are two broad categories of cookies:
_ first party cookies, served directly by Kerbedanz to your computer or mobile device. They are used only by Kerbedanz to recognise your computer or mobile device when it revisits our website.
_ third party cookies, which are served by a third party service provider on our website, and can be used by the service provider to recognise your computer or mobile device when it visits other platforms. Third party cookies are most commonly used for platform analytics or advertising purposes.
Cookies can remain on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Kerbedanz uses both ‘session cookies’ and ‘permanent cookies’. Session cookies exist only while your browser is open and are deleted automatically once you close your browser. Permanent cookies survive after your browser is closed, and can be used to recognise your computer or mobile device when you open your browser and browse the internet again.
What cookies does Kerbedanz use?
The website serves only the following types of cookies to your computer or mobile device:
Cookies necessary for essential purposes: these cookies are essential to provide you with services available through this website and to use some of its features, such as access to secure areas.

Functional cookies: these cookies serve a variety of purposes related to the presentation, performance and functionality of this website. Their overall purpose, however, is to enhance visitors’ experience and enjoyment of this website.

Your device will have settings that allow you to turn off these services should you no longer wish to benefit from them.

We have appropriate technical and organisational physical, electronic, and procedural safeguards to protect the personal information that you provide to us against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, damage or destruction.
