What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files which are sent to your device (computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet) by our website when you visit. Cookies are stored on your device in your browser’s file directory.

Types of cookies

Depending on their function and their intended purpose, cookies can be assigned to the following categories:

  • Strictly necessary cookies are required to navigate our websites and operate basic website functions. Examples for strictly necessary cookies are login cookies, shopping cart cookies or cookies to remember your cookie settings. Without these cookies certain basic functionalities cannot be offered. Strictly necessary cookies are always active and will be placed without your consent.
  • Performance cookies – aka analytics cookies - collect information on your usage of our websites. They identify e.g. your internet browser, operating system, visited websites, duration and number of website visits, previously visited website, most commonly visited websites and errors 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.
  • Functional cookies enable a website to store information and options you have already previously entered (e.g. username, language settings, layout settings, contact preferences or your location) in order to offer you improved personalized functions. They are also used to enable requested functions, like playing videos.
  • Targeting cookies – aka cookies for marketing purposes - are used to offer more relevant and interest-specific content to you, to limit the display frequency of ads and to measure the efficiency of an advertising campaign. They register if you have visited a promoted website or not, and which content you used. Such information may be shared with third parties, e.g. advertisers.

To the extent that information processed in connection with strictly necessary cookies should qualify as personal data, the legal basis for that processing is Eqlaim’s legitimate interest to operate the website (Art. 6 (1) lit. (f) GDPR).
