What is a cookie?
Certhon makes use of cookies on this website. A cookie is a simple text fragment that is saved by your browser onto your computer after you have visited a website. Cookies can be used in several ways. They can allow you to navigate efficiently between various pages or to save user preferences, as well as for the analysis of the navigation in order to enhance the website’s user-friendliness. The information contained in a cookie can only be read by the website that has placed this cookie.

Which cookies are used by Certhon?

First-party cookies
Cookies that you receive for the same domain that you visit are called first-party cookies. Therefore, any cookies placed on your computer when visiting this page are from Certhon and therefore first-party cookies.

Third-party cookies
A website can also contain elements put there by third parties. Typical examples of this are externally added videos, advertisements and social media buttons. If cookies are transferred from third-party servers along with these elements, these are called third-party cookies. You may therefore receive third-party cookies when you visit Certhon for YouTube.com, vimeo.com and other websites.

Session cookies
Session cookies let us see which parts of the website you viewed when you visited it. Certhon can therefore adapt this service to the surfing behaviour of its visitors to the greatest extent possible. These cookies are automatically removed as soon as you close your web browser.

Google Analytics
A cookie is automatically placed via our website from the American company Google, as part of its “Analytics” service. We use this service to maintain a record of and receive reports about how our visitors use our website. Google may disclose this information to third parties if Google is obliged to do so by law, or insofar as those third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. This is beyond Certhon’s control. Certhon has not permitted Google to use the Analytics information thus obtained for other Google services.

Other/unforeseen cookies
Due to the manner in which the internet and websites work, Certhon may not always have insight into the cookies placed by third parties via the Certhon website. This is particularly the case if our web pages contain “embedded/external elements” such as texts, documents, images or videos that have been saved by another party but that are nevertheless shown on, in or via our website.

Have you discovered cookies in this category on the Certhon website (and which we have therefore not listed above)? Please tell us or contact the relevant third party directly to ask which cookie(s) this party has placed, the reason for placing the cookie(s), the lifespan of the cookie(s) and how your privacy can be guaranteed.
