Cookie Policy

Last revised: March 2019

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.

Website-Tracking - etracker
This website uses etracker technology (www.etracker.com) to collect data on visitor behavior. The data is collected anonymously for use in marketing and optimization. The data collected by the etracker technology will not be used to determine the personal identity of a website visitor, and will not be compiled with personal data relating to the person referred to by the pseudonym, unless agreed to separately by the person concerned. The collection and storage of data may be revoked at any time with respect to future services.

Exclude from website tracking (etracker)

Cookies used for customer advertising purposes

We use this type of cookies to gather information about the use of this website by our customers that have registered an account with this website or explicitly consented to participation in the Osram email campaigns. These customers receive a unique sales force ID, which is stored in a cookie when customers visit our website. It enables us to keep track of their activities within the website, determine their shopping preferences and learn more about their interests. Therefore, we can offer such customers more relevant content and product recommendations according to their specific desires, which significantly reduces their search costs, reinforces purchase decisions and increases the overall utility of this webpage.
These cookies register what type of reference was used to reach out this website. e.g. an email campaign, which content was viewed as well as other activity details, e.g. downloads.

3. Legal basis for data processing
The legal basis for processing personal data using cookies is Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR.

4. Purpose of data processing
The purpose of technically necessary cookies is to make it easier to use websites. Some functions of our website cannot be offered without the use of cookies. It is necessary for these cookies to be recognized again by the browser when the user moves to another page.

The user data collected by technically necessary cookies is not used to create user profiles.

The analytics cookies are used to improve the quality and content of our website. These analytics cookies help us learn how the website is used so that we can keep on optimizing our offering.

These purposes also constitute our legitimate interests in processing personal data in accordance with Article 6 (1) point (f) GDPR.
