We distinguish between strictly necessary cookies, (optional) statistics cookies, (optional) marketing cookies and (optional) profiling cookies. For a more detailed description on the use of these cookies, see section 2.1. The cookies used are stored for different periods of time, so we also distinguish between permanent cookies and session cookies (see section 2.2).

Strictly necessary cookies
These cookies are necessary for the website to work. Without these cookies, the website cannot be operated.
These cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of our website, and hence the user experience, by analysing your behaviour. For example, the cookies collect information about how you use our website, the number of visits you make, the average time you spend and the pages you view. Statistics cookies help us to determine, for example, which elements of our online offering are most widely used and to further develop our website based on your needs. We also use statistics cookies to track and analyse the behaviour of users on our website ("user tracking").
These cookies are used to offer you relevant content that is tailored to your interests. They are also used to manage advertising and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. The cookies record whether or not you have visited a website and what content you have used there. This is based on the unique identification of your browser and your device. The information may be shared with third parties, such as advertisers, and used by them for their own purposes, so that relevant advertising can also be displayed to you on other websites. These cookies are often linked to third-party website features.
Cookies may be stored on your device for a long period of time or temporarily.
So-called permanent cookies are stored on your device for a set period of time until the cookie expires (or until you delete it beforehand). This saves language settings, for example, so you don't have to configure them again for our website.
A session cookie temporarily stores a session ID while you are active on our website. This prevents you from having to log in again, for example if you change web page within our website. Session cookies are deleted when you leave the website or cease to be valid when your session expires that is, when you leave the website or close your browser.
A first-party cookie is a cookie placed by us as the responsible party or by our operators Andreas Stihl (Pty) Ltd processes the data collected by the first-party cookies for its own purposes, regardless of whether it has programmed the cookie itself or is using the cookie of another provider.
In principle it is also possible to visit our website without optional cookies; however, using it without optional cookies may alter the functioning or availability of the website. If you want to make full use of the functionality of our web pages, we recommend that you accept all cookies.
Please note that your selection affects only the browser you used when you made the selection. If you use different devices or different browsers on a device, you usually need to make your cookie selection again. Under certain circumstances the settings may be reset to the default settings after updates or if you delete cookies from your browser, so you have to reconfigure them.
If you allow cookies in your browser settings, we will show you a cookie banner on our website. This allows you to manage your cookie settings, for example to enable or disable optional cookies. Optional cookies are placed only if you give your consent for the respective cookie category. Please note that strictly necessary cookies do not require your consent and are always placed whenever you allow cookies in your browser settings.
You may withdraw your consent in our Privacy Preference Centre at any time with future effect and change the cookie categories you have selected. To this end, please use the "cookie settings" that are linked at the beginning of this text.
