Cookie policy

At Arte, we take the protection of your personal data and privacy very seriously. We believe in the importance of making our services transparent, personal and reliable. That is why we developed this cookie policy which explains why and in which way we use cookies. This cookie policy was last modified on 18.08.2021.

1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files your browser puts on your computer or mobile device. Cookies support your browser during your visit to websites or apps.

There are different types of cookies, ranging from ones that remember your language preferences to ones that are used for advertising purposes. We use cookies for different purposes. Some cookies are session cookies and are only active as long as your browser is open, while others are permanent cookies and remain on your computer for a longer period of time. Cookies cannot collect data stored on your computer. (See below for more information)

The lifespan of cookies can vary. Session cookies are only kept while you visit the website and are deleted when you close your browser, while other cookies can be stored for a week, a month, a year or longer. (See below for more information).

2. Why do we use cookies?
Cookies allow us to improve our website. We use cookies to learn more about how visitors interact with our website. For example, cookies remember which browser you use and which additional browser software you have installed. They also remember your preferences, such as language and region, which are stored as default settings when you visit the website again. Cookies allow you to review pages and send forms with comments, for example. We are convinced that the cookies we use improve your user experience while visiting our website.

3. What types of cookies do we use?

d. Social media:
Our website uses social media buttons to link to Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, LinkedIn and YouTube. These sites use a social media button to place a social media cookie so that they can recognise you when you use the button. Please refer to the privacy policies of Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram and LinkedIn, as ARTE has no influence on how these social media buttons function. The privacy policies of these social media providers change regularly, so ARTE recommends that you refer to the privacy policies of these providers on their websites.

Miscellaneous: See https://policies.google.com/technologies/cookies?hl=en-GB#types-of-cookies, 3rd Party cookie.

4. Why do we use the above-mentioned cookies?
- To record whether you accept or refuse cookies.
- To assign you a unique random code (known as an "id" or "token") at the beginning of each visit, which the server uses to distinguish you from other visitors. Your visit to and your behaviour on our website are unique, so our server must be able to distinguish you from other visitors.
- To store preferences, e.g. if you prefer to see the list of products and icons in thumbnail, list or detailed view.
- To record the language in which you visit the website.
- To share content on social media.
- To allow us to offer you personalised ads.
