Use of cookies

Functional & Performance Cookies - to improve the functionality of our websites

One reason tesa employs cookies is to better understand how its websites are used in order to enhance their attractiveness, content and functionality. Cookies help tesa, for example, to determine which pages of its website are visited and which content interests users. For these purposes tesa uses flash cookies and load time optimization cookies. These so-called "first-party cookies" record, in particular, the number of times a page is accessed, the number of website pages viewed, the amount of time spent on tesa websites, the sequence of pages visited, the search terms that led you to tesa ’s site, the country, region and possibly the city from where the site is being accessed, the operating system and internet browser used, your language setting and how often tesa websites are accessed by mobile devices. tesa also records mouse movements, clicks and scrolling to find out which areas of its website are of particular interest to visitors. The IP address of your computer, which is transmitted for technical reasons, is automatically rendered anonymous so that your identity cannot be determined.

As a registered user you have the option of signing in to tesa ’s website using your registration data, i.e. "logging in". In such cases tesa also uses cookies to identify you as a registered customer upon a repeat visit to its website within a 28-day period and to allow you to remain logged in.

During your first visit to tesa ’s website, a popup will appear at the upper edge of the screen asking you to confirm whether you agree to the utilization of cookies. The button provided can be used to agree. If you change your mind later on, simply delete all of the cookies stored by your browser.

Advertising Cookies - for usage-based online advertising 

tesa reserves the right to use data obtained by analysing the usage behaviour of visitors to its websites via cookies in order to display specific advertising for certain tesa products on tesa ’s websites. tesa believes that you benefit from this as a user because tesa displays advertising banners or content based on your surfing behaviour so as to match your interests, reducing random advertising and displaying of content likely of less interest to you.
