The protection of your data
What are cookies?
Cookie (“browser cookie” or “HTTP cookie”) is a small file, consisting of letters and numbers, which is stored on a device with internet access (computer, mobile phone, tablet, etc.) and is installed by the request issued by a web server to a browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Chrome). Please note: Cookies do not contain software, viruses or spyware and cannot access information on the user’s device. Cookies do not ask for personal information. A cookie consists of a name and text content. Its lifespan is limited, and it can be accessed again by the webserver when a user returns to the website.
Our cookies fall into two categories:
- Essential cookies: These are the cookies that are required in order for the website to function properly. They allow us to provide services, such as storing user authentication, shopping cart content, etc. If they are disabled, the user cannot use these services.
- Performance cookies: These cookies are used to monitor the performance of the site and to highlight the areas visited by the user. They allow us to analyse traffic and improve our services. These cookies do not collect information that can identify the user.

If you have provided us with your first and last name, we use this data to issue invoices and payment documents, in order to personalise the emails you receive from us.

We have taken all technical measures so that you are not obliged to provide us with any data (everything is optional), but it is good to know that without them it is possible that certain parts of the site will not work properly, or that we will not be able to collaborate, or we may not notify you of services in our portfolio that you may be interested in.
Sharing of personal data
We did not sell, we do not sell and we will never sell your data to third parties. We offer services and products that are based on the trust of our customers and our potential customers, and the security of personal data is essential in this process. The only entities that have access to the data of this site’s users are the agencies or suppliers with whom we collaborate based on contracts with incorporated confidentiality clauses, without which we could not carry out our activity, and, in exceptional cases and only on the basis of official requests, public law enforcement institutions in Germany. The only data about this site’s users, to which third parties have access, are aggregated and anonymised – data based on which users cannot be identified.
