Cookies at DocHorse.com

The acceptance of cookies is not a prerequisite for access to our websites. We draw your attention, however, to the fact that our website and service has only limited functionality, if you do not allow us to place cookies.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small files that are stored on your data carrier and hold certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Basically speaking there are 2 different types of cookies: the so-called session cookies, that are deleted as soon as you close your browser; and temporary/permanent cookies, that are stored on your data carriers for a longer period or without limit. This type of storage helps us to design our websites and our offers for you and makes it easier for you to use them in that, for example, certain input from you can be stored so that you are not required to enter this repeatedly.

Which cookies are used by DocHorse?

Most of the cookies used by us are automatically deleted from your hard disk at the end of the browser session (hence the term "session cookies"). Session cookies are needed, for example, to make the shopping-basket function available to you over several pages. In addition to these we also make use of cookies that remain on your hard disk. On a subsequent visit it is then automatically recognized that you have previously visited us, and we know which input and settings you prefer. These temporary or even permanent cookies (lifespan of 1 month to 10 years) are stored on your hard disk and are automatically deleted after the pre-specified period. These cookies in particular serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and more secure.

What data is stored in the cookies?

In the cookies used by DocHorse, only pseudonymous data is stored. On activation of the cookie this is allocated an identification number; an allocation of your person-specific data to this identification number is not undertaken. Your name, your IP address and other such data that might allow the cookie to be traced to you directly are not placed in the cookie. On the basis of the cookie technology we receive only pseudonymized information, relating for example to which of our shop pages have been visited, which products were viewed, etc.

Are there also cookies from third-party suppliers (so-called "third-party cookies")?

DocHorse makes use of a number of web partners (such as Google Analytics) who help to make the Internet offer and the websites more interesting for you. This is why, when visiting the websites, the cookies of partner companies are also stored on your hard disk. These cookies are temporary/permanent cookies that are deleted automatically after the pre-specified period. These temporary or even permanent cookies (lifespan of 14 days to 10 years) are stored on your hard disk and delete themselves after the pre-specified period. The cookies of our partner companies also contain solely pseudonymous - mostly even anonymous - data. This relates, for example, to data on which products you have looked at, whether anything was bought, which products were searched for, etc.

How can you prevent the storage of cookies?

In your browser you can adopt the setting that storage of cookies is only permissible when you agree to it, and thereby prevent the further storage of cookies in the future.
