  • 3. What Kinds of Cookies Do We Use and What Are Their Features?

    To ensure your experience on our websites/apps is user-friendly, interactive, relevant, and secure, we use various cookies and similar technologies, with a distinction made between two types of cookie:

    • Persistent Cookies stay on your device for a fixed period of time, specified in the cookie. They are activated every time you visit the website or app that generated the cookie.

    • Session cookies are temporary. Via these, website operators can link your activities to a browser session. A browser session begins when you open the browser window and ends when you close it. As soon as you close the browser, all session cookies are deleted.

    Cookies have various features. We use the following cookie types:

    3.1. Functional Cookies

    These strictly necessary (“functional”) cookies are required to provide the basic functions of our websites and apps. Without them, you cannot use our websites and apps as intended. The principal feature of functional cookies is that they make it easier for you to access website and app content. They can also ensure compliance with stricter security regulations for data transmission. Finally, a functional cookie is used to save your decision on the use of cookies on our websites and apps. We also use these cookies to save your location and language settings.

    Your consent is not required for the use of functional cookies, as they are absolutely essential for the provision of the website and of the app. You cannot deactivate these cookies, but you can set your browser to block them or alert you about them – but some parts of the websites and apps may no longer work.

    3.2 Advertising / Targeting Cookies

    Advertising/targeting cookies are used to identify you (based for example on your IP address and geographical location) and to evaluate your use of the website or app. Based on this, you will be offered relevant products and services and the effectiveness of our campaigns will be measured. These cookies may be set by us, or by third parties with the consent of the website operator. Third-party providers can use targeting cookies to evaluate your interests and to show you relevant offers and services on other websites and apps for which Vontobel is not responsible. They work by identifying your browser and device outside the Vontobel website or app. These cookies may, for example, remember that you have visited a website or app, and this information may be shared with third parties, including other advertisers. We also advertise our products, services and events on Vontobel’s social media profiles. To support this process, we use advertising/targeting cookies. Via these, social media operators (e.g. Facebook) can recognize independent users or defined target groups on their platforms and send them offers on our behalf. You can opt out of this by managing your preferences in the cookie settings and not selecting this type of cookie. These cookies may be managed for us by third-party providers. If possible, we contractually require these providers to comply with the applicable confidentiality and data protection regulations and to not use the data obtained for their own purposes.

    3.3 Analytics / Statistics Cookies

    Analytics/statistics cookies allow us to count visits and identify the source of visits so that we can find out more about the performance of our website and app, and improve it. They help us find out which pages are most popular, how visitors navigate the website and app, and whether they get error messages from a page. Analytics/statistics cookies also make it possible for us to use certain third-party products and services, so that videos can be played or you can give feedback on our services. We configure these cookies so that no information that can personally identify you is stored (see Point 4). Where possible, we contractually require third parties to comply with the applicable secrecy and data-protection regulations and to not use data they gather for their own purposes. For further information, check each provider’s own privacy policy. Vontobel uses the information it collects in an aggregated and thus anonymous way.
