What Data Is Stored in The Cookies
In the cookies used by KOC Europe, only anonymous data is stored. Your name, your IP address and other personal information that might be used to trace you directly are not placed in the cookie. On the basis of the cookie technology we receive only anonymous information, relating for example to which of our shop baskets have been visited, which products were viewed, etc.
This data will never be used to identify you personally but only help us to recognize and remember your interests so that we can customize content and enhance the personalization of your online shopping experience. For example, after the initial set-up and sign in, these cookies enable you to come back to our site again without having to sign in each time.
With this technology, we can recognize your interests, present specific products/services to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. The content will be based on information obtained from a connection to click-stream analysis (for example, it is based on the fact that during the past few days only Fiber Optic Cables has been viewed). Our aim is to make your shopping experience as comfortable as possible.
