Cookie Policy

During the access to the GMag internet pages, so-called cookies can be stored on your system and can be called up during the subsequent use of the respective internet page to fulfil different functions. In order to provide the best possible transparency, this cookie policy informs you about the different categories and functions of the cookies used and explains how you can prevent cookies from being set and how to delete stored cookies. General information about our handling of personal data can also be found in our data protection declarations.

What are cookies and how are they set?

Cookies are stored locally on your system when you call up a website or use certain functions of a website. For this purpose, the web server transfers the relevant information to your system using the browser you are using.

Each cookie is assigned a specific function (e.g. saving the selected language setting of a website). For this purpose, the required information is stored in the cookies by means of an individual character sequence, read out during the use of the associated Internet page and processed accordingly.

In simple terms, cookies can be described as small text files that contain specified information in connection with the Internet page called up and allow it to carry out its various functions by using the information stored in the cookies.

What are cookies used for in connection with the GMag Internet pages?

Special function cookies make some basic functions of our Internet pages possible at all. These technically indispensable cookies allow us, for example, to offer secure login to the GMag internet pages and their comfortable use. They can also be used to display or hide certain content, or to load previously defined settings such as the displayed language or the orientation and size of a window.

Analysis cookies can also be used to partially record the use of GMag internet pages and then analyse it. For example, we can determine how often a GMag internet page has been accessed, how regularly certain functions are used, or whether and where errors occurred. These cookies can also be used to deliver advertisements that are in the best interest of our customers. The information associated with the GMag cookies (first party cookies) is regularly stored in pseudonymised form, which means that we are unable to assign the cookie directly to an individual user without consulting further information.

In the context of the integration of third party content (for example by embedding a game or video stored on an external platform), cookies from third party providers (third party cookies) may also be set. As far as we are able to do so, we attach an overview of the respective cookies in the table below and update them regularly. More detailed information on the respective cookies is usually also contained in the data protection regulations of the respective third party provider.

Insofar as the setting of the respective cookies is not absolutely necessary for the provision of our services, cookies are set on the basis of your consent, which you grant by clicking on the correspondingly labelled button in our cookie window and can be revoked at any time by deleting the set cookies through your browser settings.

How long are cookies stored and how can set cookies be removed?

For each cookie a validity period corresponding to its function is defined. As a rule, cookies are automatically removed from your system as soon as you close your browser or end the usage process by logging out (session cookies). Insofar as this is justified by their respective function, some cookies may also remain on your system for a longer period of time (persistent cookies).

You can, however, basically set your Internet browser so that either all cookies or only all third party cookies are blocked, or the cookies set are automatically deleted immediately after closing the browser, regardless of their validity period. If you wish to use this option, please follow the corresponding instructions of your browser provider. Please note, however, that in this case the use of the GMag Internet pages may be completely or partially impossible or only possible to a limited extent for technical reasons.

In addition, by clicking on the button below, you can delete any cookies that were set due to the use of the GMag website from which you accessed this cookie policy. This deletion can only be carried out if it is technically possible in this way (for example, it is not possible to delete certain third party cookies). Please note that repeated access to this website will reset the relevant cookies.
