Cookies are text files that are stored or read by a website on your end device. They contain combinations of letters and numbers which enable us to recognise the user and user settings when the user returns to the website which set the cookie; they also enable the user to stay logged in to a customer account and allow us to statistically analyse a certain user behaviour.
The WebStorage technology enables the local storage of variables and values in the user's browser cache. The technology includes so-called 'sessionStorage' which remains stored until the browser tab is closed as well as 'localStorage' which remains stored in the browser cache until the cache is emptied by the user. The localStorage technology enables, among other things, recognition of the user and user settings when the user comes back to our website.
