1. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that your browser stores on your computer. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. They help us identify particularly popular areas of our internet offering. This enables us to tailor the content of our web pages more specifically to suit your needs and improve our internet offering for you. Cookies can be used to determine if your computer has already communicated with our web pages. Only the cookie on your computer is identified in this respect. Per-sonal data may be stored in cookies if you have consented to this (e.g. to facilitate protected online access so that you need not re-enter your user ID and password). A cookie of this nature contains at least two components: the name and the value of the file.

There is also a self-expiring date in most cases which can schedule any arbitrary cookie lifetime. This is why a distinction is made between so-called session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies are deleted automatically when the browser closes. Persistent cookies are stored initially on your computer and only deleted after a specific time has expired. These cookies remember your preferences when you next visit the website.

2. Which categories of cookies are there?

  • Strictly necessary cookies are essential to enable you to move around a website and use its fea-tures. Functionalities cannot be guaranteed without these cookies. For example, they ensure that ac-tions taken during a visit (e.g. text input or vehicle configuration) are retained, even when navigating between individual pages of the website.
  • Functionality cookies enable a website to save details which have already been effected (such as your user name, language or the location you are in) and provide enhanced personal features for the user. These cookies collect anonymized information and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
  • Performance cookies collect information on how visitors use a website, examples being the pages visitors go to most often and if they get error messages from a web page. These cookies do not collect information that could permit identification of the user. The information collect is aggregated and anonymous. These cookies are only used to improve the performance of a website and, consequently, the user experience.
  • Third-party cookies are set by, for example, social networks. They are primarily used to integrate social media content such as social plugins on our website. Information on how we use social plugins can be obtained in the “Use of social media plugins” section of the privacy statement. They are also used to limit the frequency an advertisement appears and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns.

Daimler TSS uses Adobe Omniture products (Omniture SiteCatalyst, Omniture DataWarehouse, Om-niture Discover and Omniture SearchCenter) for statistical processing of data.

3. Objection to the use of cookies

If you do not want Daimler TSS to collect and analyze information about your visit, you can object to this at any time for the future (opt out).

An opt-out cookie is set in your browser for technical implementation of this objection. This cookie is solely for the purpose of mapping your objection. Please note that, for technical reasons, an opt-out cookie can only be used for the browser from which it was set. You will need to opt out again if you delete the cookies or use another browser or device.

The opt-out cookie applies exclusively to Adobe Analytics.
