Cookies

Some parts of our website use what are known as cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. The purpose of cookies is to make our website more user-friendly, efficient and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are what as known as session cookies. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit.

You can set your browser to notify you about cookies, to only allow cookies on an individual basis, to accept cookies for certain cases or to reject all cookies, and you can enable automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser. Disabling cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

Cookies that are required for carrying out electronic communication or for providing certain functions that you wish to use (such as the shopping cart) are saved on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in using cookies for optimised provision of its services without technical problems. Any other cookies that are used (such as cookies for analysing your use of the website) are treated separately in this privacy policy.

Our website itself does not store any personal information on log files or forms. On our website it is only possible to contact us via e-mail using a contact form. See the following paragraph.

Contact form for requesting a catalogue

If you send us a request for a catalogue via the contact form, the information you put on the form, including the contact details you provide there, is saved in order to process the request and to contact you in the event of subsequent queries. We will not share this information without your consent. The form is available on our website at https://www.sangel.com/de/service/kataloganforderung/ and https://www.sangel.com/en/service-2/request-for-catalogue/.
