Cookies are small text files that are downloaded onto your computer when you visit most websites (such as this one). These files remain on your computer for a period of time, depending on the code used. They vary in importance, some track the pages you have visited, some remember your preferences and some help advertisers display adverts which is relevant to your interests.
Under new EU privacy regulations, websites must make it clear to visitors what information is being stored about them.
The new privacy legislation essentially requires websites to obtain consent from visitors to store or retrieve any information on a computer or web connected device. This is where the cookies become relevant. Certain cookies, which are deemed to be “strictly necessary”, are exempt from the change in the law, i.e. shopping carts or WordPress (the engine behind this website) which require these bits of programming to work as intended.
The European General Data Privacy Regulation, in short EU-GDPR, requires your consent for the collection, processing and storage of personal data. As part of profiling tracking, affilinet GmbH and its affiliated advertising and technology partners store information on product or category pages visited. This serves the distribution of advertising banner with content that might interest you, which are for you of larger interest than not targeted advertisement. By clicking on the buttons at the bottom of the page, you can agree to the use of the data or reject it.
The technology of affilinet profiling enables companies to target consumers, who are in the process of purchasing products and services online, with relevant banner adverts. Due to profiling reasons, the collected data will be forwarded to the following technology partners:
