This Cookie Policy explains how OSRAM uses cookies on its websites.

1. Scope of data collection

Our websites use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in or by the web browser on the user’s computer system. If a user calls a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be identified unambiguously when the website is called again.

Technically necessary cookies:

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require the browser calling it to be identified after the user moves to another page.

The following data can be stored in the cookies if required:

  • Language settings
  • Articles in a shopping cart
  • Log-in information

Cookies used for analysis purposes:

We also use cookies, such as etracker, on our website to enable analysis of users’ surfing behavior, without that being linked to a specific person. The user data collected in this way is pseudonymized using technical precautions. That means the data can no longer be used to identify the user calling the website. The data is not stored together with other personal data of users.

Performance / Analytics (Google Analytics):

Provided that you give your consent through the so-called Cookie Banner by sending your Cookie preferences, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses Cookie technology to enable analyzation of your usage of this website. Information provided through this analytics service may be sent to a Google server located in the United States of America.

Provided, IP-anonymization has been activated, Google will shorten your IP-adress within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be sent to a Google server and shortened within the United States. Google utilizes the data collected to track and examine the use of this website, to prepare reports on its activities and to provide related services to us. IP-addresses collected in the context of the Google Analytics services will not be matched and linked to other information or personal data collected by Google.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension/add-on "_anonymizeIp()" and thus IP-addresses are processed only in an abbreviated form in order to rule out any direct relation to persons. In case any of the data collected allows direct relations to an individual, this relation will immediately be excluded and personal data promptly deleted.
