Cookie Policy

At eshop.tuning-x.com, we take the protection of your Personal Data very seriously. This Policy describes how we use cookies and similar technologies to recognize you when you visit our website at eshop.tuning-x.com. It also explains what these technologies are and why we use them, as well as your rights to control our use of them.

Use of cookies

A cookie is a small simple file that is stored by your browser on the hard drive of your computer or device and sent when you visit a website. The information stored in cookies is then returned (depending on the cookie) to our servers (or to the servers of the relevant third parties) on a subsequent visit. Doing so, Cookies transmit small amounts of data about your device to the relevant web server and enables a website to recognize your computer, smartphone, or other device.

Whilst cookies can be classified through their Lifespan, i.e., whether they remain stored on your device for the duration of your browsing session, session cookies, or permanently until they are deleted or expire, permanent cookies.

A second method to classify cookies is by determining their origin or by who is placing a particular cookie. As such a distinction is drawn between first-party cookies and third-party cookies. First-party cookies are created directly by a website, whereas third-party cookies are created by a service provider. And because of that, each cookie stores different data and as such must be evaluated individually which then leads to several types of cookies.

The least privacy invasive type of cookies are Essential or Necessary cookies. These cookies are essential or necessary to ensure that a website works properly and is secure so that you can navigate a website and use its features. Without these cookies, certain features of a website would not function, and thus you would not be able to use certain services.

There are also Functional cookies or sometimes called convenience cookies. These cookies allow a website to remember the options a user has made (including user ID`s stored, consents given, or languages selected) and other personalization options you have selected when browsing.

Further there are also Analysis and performance cookies, which are used to monitor and improve the function and service of a website. Those can track down problems when using a website, facilitate online surveys, record visitor numbers, and provide analytics metrics.

Lastly, Advertising cookies or targeting cookies. They are used to deliver customized advertising to the user. This can be very convenient, but also very annoying.

What law applies to cookies?

The Privacy and Electronic Communications Directive (“PECD”) regulates the use of cookies. Accordingly, we have to obtain consent for all cookies that are non-essential (functional, analysis and performance or advertising cookies) for our website to function.

further and in accordance with the Law 3471/2006 on the Protection of Personal Data and Privacy in the Electronic Telecommunications Sector and Amendment of Law 2472/1997, and the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), we are required to have a legal basis for the use of cookies that process your Personal Data. As the legal basis for such processing is your consent, we have installed the necessary Cookie Notification Banner and you will be asked about the use of Cookies upon your first visit of our website.
