3 Automatic data recording by cookies

Cookies are small files which are stored on your data storage device and save specific settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A distinction can fundamentally be made between two different types of cookies. There are both „session cookies“ and temporary or permanent cookies. Whereas session cookies are deleted as soon as you close your browser, temporary and permanent cookies are stored on your data storage device for a longer period of time or indefinitely. This storage helps us to configure our offers to suit you, but also makes it easier for you to use our website. The fact that certain entries that you make are saved means they do not need to be repeated. The following data is automatically recorded when the website of 5M-Automation is called up by means of cookies by the computer system of our web provider:

  • your internet address (IP address),
  • browser type and version,
  • website from which you access the website of 5M-Automation (referrer URL),
  • operating system used,
  • website from which you are redirected to other websites,
  • date and time of your access.

This data is stored separately from your other data that you might specify to 5M-Automation. The data is not linked to your other data. It is evaluated for statistical purposes to enable 5M-Automation to optimise its website and other offers. The data is deleted after it has been evaluated. If you do not wish cookies to be used, you can block such use in your browser. The possibility that this will have an adverse effect on the functionality of the website of 5M-Automation cannot be ruled out.
