1. What are cookies?

A cookie is a small data file that is stored on your device and contains data such as your personal page settings and login information. This data file is generated by the web server that you used to establish a connection via your web browser and is sent to you. In general, we use cookies to analyse interest in our web pages and to make them more user-friendly. You can access our web pages without cookies in principle. However, if you want to use our pages fully and smoothly, you should accept the cookies that enable certain functions to be used or make the use of our website more user-friendly. MAN uses cookies to make its offers more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Our cookies do not contain any person-specific information.

By using our web pages, you agree to the use of cookies provided that you have enabled cookies in your browser settings. Most browsers are set to accept all cookies by default. However, you have the option of setting your browser so that cookies are displayed before being stored, only certain cookies are accepted or rejected or cookies are rejected in general.

Below is a list showing the most common types of cookies and what they are used for.

2.1. Session cookies

While you are using a website, a session cookie is temporarily stored in your computer’s memory; this is done by a session ID being stored so that, for example, you do not have to log in again every time you change page. Session cookies are deleted when you log off or expire as soon as your session ends automatically.

2.2. Permanent or persistent cookies

A permanent or persistent cookie stores a file on your computer for a fixed period of time until its expiration date. Using these cookies, websites remember your information and settings on your next visit. This makes access to the websites faster and more user-friendly, for example because you do not have to configure your language setting for our portal again. When the expiration date is reached, the cookie is deleted automatically when you visit the website that generated it.

2.4. First-party cookies

These are placed by the website itself (same domain as in the browser address bar) and can only be read by that particular website. These cookies are usually used to store information (for example, your settings) that will be used on your next visit to the website.

2.3. Third-party cookies

Third-party cookies come from different parties to the website’s operator. They can be used to collect information for advertising, user-defined content and web statistics, for example.

Our website uses the re-marketing function “Facebook Custom Audience”, a tool from Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, “Facebook”). The purpose of “Facebook Custom Audience” is to reach Facebook users who have previously visited the MAN website in order to provide them with relevant information about our products and services, and to potentially identify new people similar to those visiting our website. This may lead to you being presented MAN marketing material on Facebook after visiting the man.eu website. A Facebook pixel has been implemented on our website for this purpose. When visiting our website, the Facebook pixel collects information and passes it on to a third-party Facebook cookie on your computer, which is used to connect to the Facebook servers. This means that technically there is no direct connection between the Facebook pixel on the MAN website and Facebook. However, the collected data is indirectly passed on to Facebook by the Facebook cookie on your computer. Facebook and MAN are responsible for the processing of this data. The so-called third-party Facebook cookie installed on your computer is not visible to MAN, nor can they alter it.
