Cookies and flash cookies are small files that are stored in your local memory, which store certain settings for data exchange with our system with your browser. Basically, cookies are distiguished in two types, temporary, or session cookies, which are deleted when you close your browser, and permanent, or long-term cookies, that stay for a longer period, or permanently, in your memory. The storage helps us to shape our website and customize our offers customized for you, and makes the usage easier for you, i.e. by saving your inputs, on purpose that you don‘t have to repeat them every time.

Which cookies are being used on moDecor?

Mostly, the cookies that we use are being deleted from your storage after closing the browser (end of the session) automatically (that‘s why they are called session cookies). Session cookies are applied, for example, to provide the shopping cart function throughout several sites. Furthermore, we also use cookies that remain on your storage permanently. On your next visit, we recognize automatically that you have been there before, and what input and which settings you prefer. These permanent cookies (or long-term cookies) are stored on your device storage and are deleted after a determined time. Also, you can delete them manually not depending on the determined time by using the settings of your browser. Mainly, these cookies help to make our range user-friendly, effective, and safer. Due to these files it is, as an example, possible that you get customized information on the website. The exclusive purpose of these cookies is to design our offer according to the wishes of the customer, and to make you more comfortable using our website.

What data is stored in the cookies?

In the cookies used on moDecor no personal data is stored. The cookies that we use can‘t be related to a specific person and can‘t be connected to you. When the cookies are activated, they will get an individual identification number.  An allocation of the cookies to your name, your IP address, or similar data is not undertaken at any time. Cookie technology only gives us anonymised information, as an example, which sites of our shop have been visited, which products have been reviewed, etc.

What is onsite targeting?

At moDecor, by using the cookie technology, we survey data for the purpose of optimizing the advertising and the whole online range. That data is not used for identifying you personally, but only serves to evaluate the usage of our homepage. Our data is never brought together with your personal data that we have stored. By using this technology, we can present adverts and/or special offers, that are based on data surveyed by using the clickstream analysis (i.e. adverts that is influenced by the fact, that in the last days exclusively kitchen appliances have been clicked). The objective for us is that our online range for you is as attractive as possible, and to present you with adverts that comply to your area of interests.

Do we use third party cookies?

moDecor cooperates with some advertising partners that help us to make our website more interesting for you. Therefore, some cookies of our partners will also be stored on your storage. These are long-term cookies that will be deleted automatically after a certain time. Cookies from partners will be deleted usually after a few days or up until 24 months, in individual cases after a few years. Also, our partners cookies don‘t store personal data.

Some of our advertising partners may use flash cookies. Also by using flash cookies no personal data will be surveyed, the survey and usage is totally anonymous. These flash cookies are deleted from your browser automatically after a few minutes, hours, or days.

What does re-targeting mean?

Our website uses re-targeting technology. We use this technology to make our range on the internet more interesting for you. This technology allows us to provide adverts to users, who visited our shop and showed an interest in our products, on websites from our partners. We are convinced that customized and interests related adverts are much more interesting for internet users than adverts that don‘t have any personal relation. The insertion of these adverts on websites from our partners is based on cookie technology and an analysis of past usage. This type of advertising is totally anonymous. No personal data is stored and no usage profiles are stored with your personal data.

The stored data include the following data: Date and time of access, name of the accessed website, IP address, referrer url, the volume of data, product, and version information of the used browser. Conditional to the legal storage duties, the IP addresses of the user are being deleted or anonymized. If anonymized, the IP-addresses will be modified in such a way that details of personal or material circumstances can no longer or with disproportionate investment of time, cost and labour be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person.

These logfile datawill be evaluated in an anonymous way to improve our range and moDecor in a general way, and to design it in a more user-friendly way, to find and correct mistakes faster, and to handle server capacity. As an example, we can analyse at what time our shop is most popular so we can provide enough data volume to provide a fast shopping experience. Also, by analyzing protocol files we can recognize errors at moDecor faster, and fix them.

I declare my agreement to the survey and analyzing of my data stored in the so called protocol files to optimize moDecor and its appliance.
