Cookies
The websites sometimes use cookies, which are small text files. These are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you leave our site. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. They help make our service more user-friendly, effective and safe for you.

How do we use cookies and pixel tags?
We use cookies and pixel tags to understand how our clients use the website and to determine their preferences and favourite settings (for example, the country and language settings). This takes place only in aggregated form. This enables us to offer services to our clients and to improve their experience of our website. We also use cookies and pixel tags to obtain aggregated data on site usage and interactions on the site. This allows us to identify trends, collect statistics and perform similar tasks so that we can improve the site and provide users with even more useful tools in the future. Under certain circumstances we commission third parties to assist us in collecting the data. These third parties are, however, not entitled to use the information collected unless this is of use in assisting Rabe GmbH to conduct and improve its business. In general, the cookies used on the website fall into one of the following three categories:

Essential
These are permanently activated cookies that are essential for function of the site itself. They include cookies that allow us to recognise you again when you visit the website in the course of an individual session. If you so wish, we can also recognise you between different sessions. Cookies help us to track shopping basket usage and handle the payment process more easily, and they contribute to security.

Function and performance-related
These cookies are analysis tools that help us to improve the functionality of the site by collecting anonymised data about usage. They also help us to identify products that we could offer to you. Sometimes these cookies also increase the speed at which we can process enquiries; they help us to remember site settings which have been previously selected by you, as well as setting up a link to your social networks. If you do not allow these cookies, this can result in recommendations which are only imperfectly tailored to your needs, or in a slow presentation of the site. Additionally, under certain circumstances it is more difficult to share content effectively via Facebook, Twitter or other social networks.

Advertising
These cookies record information which enables us to specifically adapt for you promotional offers, both on the website and elsewhere. The data that we record here is anonymous; it is not linked to personal information which you have shared with us. If you do not permit these cookies, this could result in your being shown less relevant advertising material.

How can I change my cookie settings?
You can choose whether your computer should warn you each time that a cookie is sent to you, or you can choose to no longer allow cookies at all. You can do this via your browser settings. There are minor differences between the different browsers. You should therefore check the help functions of your browser to find out how to correctly alter the settings for cookies. If you no longer allow any cookies at all, you will no longer have access to some functions which make this website more efficient. Some of our services will no longer function properly. Since cookies are used to track the items in your shopping basket during the order process, ordering without cookies is not possible.
