What is a cookie?

A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookie technology. The cookie is downloaded by your Internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you visit this website with the same terminal device, the cookie and the information in it are either sent back to the originating website (first-party cookie) or to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookie). By that, the website can detect that it has already been opened using this browser, and in some cases it will then vary the content it shows. Some cookies are extremely useful as they are able to improve the user experience when you return to a website that you have already visited several times before. Provided you are using the same device and the same browser as on previous visits, cookies remember features such as your preferences when you use a page and adapt what is offered so that it better suits your personal interests and requirements. Cookies can be divided into four categories* according to their function and purpose: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and cookies for marketing purposes.

 

Cookies exempt from consent on this website

Strictly necessary cookies guarantee functions without which you would not be able to use this website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by AKM and are therefore called first-party cookies. They are stored on your computer merely during the current browser session. Strictly necessary cookies ensure, for instance, that, when you call up the functionalities of a website, you are shown a version that has a broad-band-related data quantity corresponding to that of the Internet connection you are using. In addition, such cookies guarantee that, when you change pages, the function of changing from http to https takes place, thus observing the elevated security requirements applying to the data transmission. Last but not least, cookies of this type also store your decision regarding the use of cookies on our website. Your consent is not required for the use of strictly necessary cookies. Strictly necessary cookies cannot be disabled via the function of this page. In general, you can disable cookies at any time in your browser.

 

Cookies subject to consent on this website

Cookies that by legal definition are not strictly necessary to use the website fulfill important tasks. Without these cookies, functions intended for your surfing convenience on our website, such as automatically filling in form details, would no longer be available. Your personal settings, such as preferred language, cannot be retained without such cookies and would therefore have to be re-entered on every page. Furthermore, without these cookies, we would no longer be able to address your individual requirements with tailored offers. AKM also integrates contents from third parties into this website. Examples of this are the incorporation of Facebook services or YouTube videos. These third-party providers can in theory set cookies while you are visiting the AKM website and thus receive information such as the fact that you have loaded a AKM website. Please visit the websites of third-party providers to obtain further information on how they use cookies. If you have fundamentally decided not to accept or cancel the use of cookies subject to consent, you will only be provided with those functionalities on our website which we can guarantee will work without these cookies. Sections of our website that potentially have the technical means to incorporate third-party contents and thus set third-party cookies will in this case not be available to you. A corresponding notice will inform you of this. If you still wish to use the content of the website in such a case, this will only be possible if you agree to the use of cookies subject to consent. To do so, please use the function provided in the relevant position on our website to give your consent.

 

Use of cookies on www.alliancealliance.com

Like most of the websites you visit, www.alliancealliance.com also uses cookies to improve the user experience on both single and repeated visits to the website. As a result you can switch quickly and easily between the pages, save your preferences, communicate via social networks such as Facebook and Google+ and use GoogleMaps services.

Cookies are set either by our website (first-party cookies) or by other websites with contents that appear on our website (third-party cookies). For instance, our website incorporates “sharing” buttons that enable users to share contents with their friends on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These third-party providers may set cookies when you are logged on to their pages and visit our website. AKM has no influence on the cookie settings of these websites. Please visit the websites of third-party providers to obtain further information on how they use cookies.

 

Managing and deleting cookies

We provide the above button as a convenient means for you to reject or accept cookies subject to consent. You can also block and delete cookies by changing your browser settings. In order to manage cookies, most browsers allow you to accept or reject cookies or only accept certain types of cookies. You will find the procedure for managing and deleting cookies in the help function integrated in your browser.

If you restrict the deployment of cookies in any way, you will not be able to use all the interactive functions on our website.
