1. Cookie Statement

Our website https://sauermanngroup.com uses cookies and comparable technologies (jointly referred to as "cookies"). Cookies are small computer files that are stored on your device when you visit our site.

Cookies take the form of text files that can identify you as a customer and save your personal preferences (e.g. your language choices) and technical information (including click stream data).

In addition, we may also use web beacons, also known as "web beacons" or "clear gifs" or similar technologies that are used to track how you use our site and which pages of our site you visit.

The first time you visit our site, you will be asked to accept the use of cookies.

Our use of Cookies is subject to your express, prior and specific consent before they can be deposited on your terminal.

By using the Sauermann group site, you accept the use of cookies in accordance with this document. If you do not accept the use of these cookies and other cookies, you can deactivate them by following the instructions below under the heading "Cookie Management". However, certain areas of the Sauermann group website can only be accessed with so-called "necessary" cookies and you should be aware that by disabling them completely you may not be able to access certain content or features of the website.

Our site uses different types of cookies: functional cookies, analytical cookies and marketing cookies.

Functional cookies are intended to make our website easier to use, to make it more pleasant for visitors and to give you a more personalised browsing experience; for example, cookies that remember your choice of language.

When you log on to our website, a functional cookie is placed in your browser: it enables us to recognise you as a visitor to our website and to adapt the content on our website to your personal situation. These functional cookies only identify your device in order to recognise it, but they are not able to identify you directly or to track your browsing activity on other websites.

According to legislation, you do not have to agree to functional cookies.

Analytical cookies collect information on how visitors use our website (pages visited, average length of visit, etc.) in order to improve its content, to better adapt it to the wishes of visitors and to increase its user-friendliness.

Marketing cookies track the browsing behaviour of visitors and establish a user profile in order to personalise the browsing experience. They allow to show the user personalised advertisements.

The information collected by marketing and analytical cookies may be shared with third parties such as advertisers.

Analytical and marketing cookies will only be placed on your device if you agree (by clicking on "I agree"). You will always be able to delete them at a later date.

As soon as you enter our website, you will have the choice to accept or decline marketing and analytical cookies:

  • By clicking on "I accept", you agree to accept marketing and analytical cookies and thus the profiling and sharing of your data with third parties such as advertisers,
  • by clicking on "I refuse", only functional cookies will be active.
