4. HOW CAN YOU MANAGE OR TURN OFF COOKIES?

Essential and functional cookies cannot be modified because they are necessary to provide our online services. The information we collect through these cookies is always anonymous, which makes identification impossible.

 

For other cookies, our cookie consent tool allows you to decide whether or not to accept certain cookies.

 

To manage the installation of cookies on your device, you can go to your browser settings. You can remove the already installed cookies from your computer or mobile device at any time. If you choose to disable cookies, you can do so for the browser you use:

 

If you use different devices to visit this website, make sure that your cookie preferences are set on the browser of every device.

 

Please note that disabling certain cookies may result in the malfunction of related features on the website e.g. certain graphics may not show the way they are meant to, or you may not be able to use certain services.

 

5. IS COOKIE INFORMATION PASSED ON TO THIRD PARTIES?

It is important to make a distinction between two types of cookies:

 

  • First-party cookies

Direct or first-party cookies are cookies that LINEAS manages and that are specific to the website visited or used.

 

  • Third-party cookies

Indirect cookies or third-party cookies are cookies that are managed and placed by a third party. These cookies therefore ensure that certain data is transmitted to third parties by your visit to the LINEAS website. These may be, for example, cookies from social media or advertisers.

 

It is possible that these third parties gain access to specific cookie information, e.g. in order to offer you personalised advertisements or to collect your feedback.

 

Certain cookies are placed on the LINEAS websites by social networking services such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. This is done via the buttons of these social networks that can be offered on the LINEAS websites. If you make use of this, these third parties may receive certain cookie information.

 

In the detailed information on LINEAS cookies above (see point 3.) you can find out which cookies are first party and which are third party.

 

6. HOW LONG IS COOKIE INFORMATION STORED?

Cookies can be stored on your computer or mobile device for different periods of time. Depending on the type of cookie, they (and the information they collect) are automatically deleted when you close your browser (these are the so-called “session cookies”), in other cases, these cookies remain stored for a longer period of time and can also be used during a subsequent visit to this website (these are the so-called “permanent cookies”).

Consult the detailed information on LINEAS cookies above (point 3.) to know the retention periods.

 

7. CHANGES TO THIS COOKIE POLICY

LINEAS may amend this Cookie Policy in accordance with certain technical, legal or commercial requirements and developments. We will inform you accordingly, taking into account the importance of the changes that have been made.
