Cookies are small data files sent from visited websites to the browser of the user’s terminal, where they are stored. Cookies carry information over from one site visit to the next, often to give users a personalized or continuous experience or to keep a user from having to provide the same information repeatedly, etc. While browsing a website, users may receive “first-party” cookies from the owner of the website, as well as cookies which are sent by different web servers or service providers (so called “third-party” cookies).

Cookies can serve several different functions - technical, analytic, or profiling cookies.

Technical cookies

Technical cookies are used for the core functions of the Website. Session cookies, for example, allow users to log in or fill out an order or contact form. These are necessary to provide services that have been explicitly requested by the user. Session cookies are not persistently stored in the user’s computer and are cancelled when the browser is closed. They are strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) required to allow safe and efficient browsing.

In order to install these cookies no prior consent by users is required.

The following technical cookies are used on our Website:

Cookie: Session
Purpose: Normal use of the Website
Duration: Browsing session

Data Sharing

Engelbert E. Stieger AG never sells user data.

Engelbert E. Stieger AG only shares user information in order to perform services explicitly requested by the user, for example, we may share your address with a shipping service in order to send fabric samples to you. In these cases, only the relevant information is shared.

In certain circumstances and according to legislation it may be necessary to disclose data to the authorities. We may also disclose your personal data in order to establish, exercise or defend our legal rights.

Your personal data is not disclosed to a third party without your permission except as described above.

Privacy Options

By setting the browser preferences, it is also possible to remove/disable any cookies installed in the past. It is possible to accept all cookies, only some, or to disable them all. However, if users decide to disable all cookies (including technical cookies), they will not have access to many features which allow the Website to be more efficient, and some of our services will not work properly.

With regard to third-party cookies, users can also read the third party’s privacy policy (linked above), and if desired, opt out through the third party, either through their privacy tools, or by contacting the third party directly.
