Information about cookies on the digital platforms of Druck Styria GmbH & Co KG

On the digital platforms (website incl. subdomains) of Druck Styria GmbH & Co KG, Styriastraße 20, A-8042 Graz – hereinafter referred to in brief as “Druck Styria” – so-called cookies are used which help to make the use of the digital products and services of Druck Styria (hereinafter referred to in summary and in brief as: “our products”) easier and more efficient.

In the following, you will find further information about cookies and how you can check them.

Note: Druck Styria does not identify with the content of the websites that are linked in the following, and excludes any liability in this regard. The calling up of the linked websites is done at the user’s risk.

What are cookies?

Cookies are text files that are saved on the computer or smartphone of the visitor to a website. They usually contain information about websites visited by the user that the browser saves when the user surfs the Internet. Cookies facilitate the recognition of the user when he or she visits the website again and can therefore be used e.g. to ensure a user does not have to re- register on a website once he or she has successfully registered himself/herself there. In addition, cookies are also suited to saving and communicating information about the surfing behaviour of the user.

Cookies are used both to improve the service quality, including to retain user settings as well as for recommendations for content and search results and for the tracking of user trends such as the content consumed by users. This means that the usage of the digital platforms can be analysed and valuable insights gained about the requirements of the users. These insights contribute to improving the quality of the digital platforms further.

The user can see cookies and also delete them individually (more detailed information on this in the following chapters). In addition, as a user, it is also possible to deactivate cookies globally via the browser by selecting corresponding browser settings.

What types of cookies are there?

1. Functionality cookies

These cookies are necessary in order to be able to use our products and their functionalities in full. This can be e.g. the saving of your input in form fields (so that you do not have to complete them several times) or the saving of your geographical location or the saving of user settings. The information collected by functionality cookies only relates to the website visited; however, no information is collected about surfing on other websites. The rejection of these cookies can result in you not having access to the full functionality.

2. Performance and/or web analysis cookies

These cookies collect – in anonymised form, i.e. without it being possible to derive conclusions about the individual user from this – information about the usage habits of the visitors to a website or app. Such information can, for instance, be at what time there was most access or what (sub-)pages were most frequently visited. This information is summarised and analysed by means of performance and/or web analysis tools, with the purpose of gaining insights about the usage, functionality and user friendliness of websites and/or apps and to be able to develop them further on a continuous basis. Consequently, these cookies are important to improve the quality of our products. Such cookies are also used to analyse the number of visits, page views and other indicators of the performance of websites or apps or certain content (e.g. advertising spot).

3. Ad server, advertising, targeting and recommender cookies

These cookies are used in order to draw conclusions with regard to your interests and requirements based on an analysis of the surfing behaviour of the users and to be able to make segmentations of users with the same or similar interests and requirements (“target groups”). Based on this, advertising can be displayed in a correspondingly specific way to the users assigned to a specific target group (“targeting”). In most cases, this is done by tools provided by special service providers (e.g. ad servers for the marketing of online advertising spaces; data management platform for the administration of user data). These cookies are also used in order to control the frequency of advertisements (in particular to restrict them) and to measure the impact and/or efficiency of campaigns. Via advertising networks, cookies of third-party providers who use them in connection with their services can also be used here. Such cookies determine whether the user has visited a website and communicate this information to the third-party provider where they can be linked with the functionalities provided by other organisations (cf. also point 4). Furthermore, special targeting cookies facilitate the provision of advertising to the users of social networks.

4. Cookies from third-party providers

These cookies are not created by the website currently visited but by another provider (= third-party provider). With such cookies, the third-party provider, usually an advertising company, can track the visits of a user on all pages on which advertising of the third-party provider is displayed. The website that you are currently visiting does not have any influence over third-party providers and/or their cookies; they also change, depending on the placement of advertising media. Some browsers make it possible to specifically block cookies from third-party providers (cf. in this regard further details in the chapter “How do I administer and delete cookies in my browser?”). In addition, cookies of third-party providers may be used when the Facebook or Google log-in is used.
