Cookies are small text files that we store on your device and that contain data such as personal page settings (e.g. language, screen resolution) and login credentials. We distinguish between strictly necessary cookies, (optional) statistics cookies, (optional) marketing cookies and (optional) profiling cookies. For a more detailed description on the use of these cookies, see section 2.1. The cookies used are stored for different periods of time, so we also distinguish between permanent cookies and session cookies (see section 2.2). 

In addition to us (as the "first party"), other parties ("third parties") may also process personal data from you using their own cookies. For more information about such third parties, please refer to the section "First/third-party cookies" (see section 2.3).

2.1 Categories of cookies

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are necessary for the website to work. Without these cookies, the website cannot be operated.

Statistics cookies

These cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of our website, and hence the user experience, by analysing your behaviour. For example, the cookies collect information about how you use our website, the number of visits you make, the average time you spend and the pages you view. Statistics cookies help us to determine, for example, which elements of our online offering are most widely used and to further develop our website based on your needs. We also use statistics cookies to track and analyse the behaviour of users on our website ("user tracking").

Marketing cookies

These cookies are used to offer you relevant content that is tailored to your interests. They are also used to manage advertising and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. The cookies record whether or not you have visited a website and what content you have used there. This is based on the unique identification of your browser and your device. The information may be shared with third parties, such as advertisers, and used by them for their own purposes, so that relevant advertising can also be displayed to you on other websites. These cookies are often linked to third-party website features.

Profiling cookies

These cookies allow us to track your online activities across different websites and platforms and to provide customised content and advertising offers tailored to your specific preferences and needs. Please note that these cookies can record your activities across different websites and other offerings, such as the newsletter, in order to create a consistent user profile.

2.2 Storage period of cookies (permanent cookies and session cookies)

Cookies may be stored on your device for a long period of time or temporarily.

So-called permanent cookies are stored on your device for a set period of time until the cookie expires (or until you delete it beforehand). This saves language settings, for example, so you don't have to configure them again for our website.

A session cookie temporarily stores a session ID while you are active on our website. This prevents you from having to log in again, for example if you change web page within our website. Session cookies are deleted when you leave the website or cease to be valid when your session expires that is, when you leave the website or close your browser.

2.3 First/third-party cookies

A first-party cookie is a cookie placed by us as the controller or by our processors. ANDREAS STIHL AG & Co. KG processes the data collected by the first-party cookies for its own purposes, regardless of whether it has programmed the cookie itself or is using the cookie of another provider.

A third-party cookie is a cookie that is not placed by the website you are currently visiting, but by a third party. This third party could, for example, be one of our service providers, such as an advertising network. Third-party cookies originate from various third-party domains that can use cookies flexibly to track user behaviour on our website and on third-party websites outside the third-party provider’s offering (in particular for user-specific advertising). When you visit a website where the advertising network places advertisements, the advertisements on this website can store a third-party cookie on your device. Although we allow third parties to access our website to install these cookies on users' devices, we do not have any control over the period of time during which these third-party cookies are stored on their devices. The data collected from the cookie is processed by the third party for its own purposes and under its own controllership in accordance with the relevant Privacy Policy and Cookie Policy or under joint controllership with us. This also includes third-party cookies from third-party social networks that allow information to be shared with the respective social networks.
