Use of Cookies
Our website uses cookies to allow us to see how the website is used. Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information which are downloaded to your device when you visit a website. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies are useful because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device. Cookies are stored on the computer’s hard drive. They cannot access the hard drive – so a cookie can’t read other information saved on the hard drive, or get your e-mail address etc. They only contain and transfer to the server as much information as you yourself have disclosed to a certain website. A server cannot set a cookie for a domain that it is not a member of. In spite of this, users quite often find in their computer files cookies from web sites that they have never visited. These cookies are usually set by companies that sell internet advertising on behalf of other web sites. Therefore it may be possible that user information is passed to third party web sites without the users’ knowledge or consent, such as information on surfing habits. This is the most common reason for people rejecting or fearing cookies. HAKORA Sealing Technology GmbH does not sell your information to third parties. The use of data processed by cookies is justified under Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
