Cookie Policy

What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. It typically contains the domain name from which the cookie originates, the "life span" of the cookie and a numerical value (usually a unique, randomly generated number).

What is the purpose of cookies?

Almost every website uses cookies to optimize page design. Cookies are downloaded and stored by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The website will load faster during your next visit using the same terminal device. The contents also vary depending on use. You will see content that corresponds to your own personal interests and needs.

How does it work?

Every time you load the website, your browser checks if a cookie associated with this website exists (i.e. contains the name of the website). If it does, your browser sends the information saved in this cookie back to the website. This allows the website to recognize that it had already been opened in this browser before, and some of the displayed content may vary based on this information.

How we use cookies at www.balluff.de

Cookies are required to use the Balluff website. We use cookies so we can improve our website. Their use allows us to offer you products and services that we think may be of interest to you. You can block or delete the cookies from this site. However, this action can prevent some of the website features from working properly.
Please note: None of the cookies used on our website collect information that can be used to identify you personally.

How you can manage and delete cookies

You can block or delete cookies in the browser settings. In order to manage cookies, most browsers allow you to accept or reject all cookies, or to accept only specific types of cookies. You can also adjust your settings so you will be asked every time a website wants to store a cookie. The ways in which you can specifically manage and delete cookies depend on your particular browser. Every browser differs in this respect. To find out, you can simply use the integrated help function in your browser. Alternatively, you can find additional information regarding various browsers here.
