Our websites uses cookies. Cookies are text files which are stored and saved via an Internet browser on a computer system. Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookies. It consists of a string through which websites and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows the visited websites and servers to distinguish the individual browser of a person affected from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID. Through the use of cookies, KURO Kunststoffe GmbH can provide users of this website with more user-friendly services which would not be possible without the cookie-setting. By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our website can be optimized in the sense of the user. As already mentioned, cookies do allow us to recognize the users of our website. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to use our website. For example, the user of a website that uses cookies does not have to re-enter his or her access data each time the website is visited, because this is taken over from the website and the cookie stored on the user's computer system. Another example is the cookie of a shopping cart in the online shop. By means of a cookie, the online shop remembers the items that a customer has placed into the virtual shopping cart. The person concerned can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the Internet browser used and thus permanently contradict the setting of cookies.
