In addition to the data protection information for our website, this cookie/tracking notice provides you with further information about the automated processing of information via cookies and web beacons and about the associated processes on our web pages.
What are cookies and web beacons?
A ‘cookie’ is a small text file that our web server sends to your browser whenever you visit our website. ‘Session cookies’ expire at the end of the browser session and can only record your activities during the respective browser session. In contrast, ‘persistent cookies’ are stored on your device even between different browser sessions and can record your settings or activities on multiple websites.
Web beacons are small graphic files (also known as ‘pixel tags’ or ‘clear GIFs’) that may be included on our websites, apps, applications, and newsletters and are typically used in conjunction with cookies to identify users or user behavior. The above information on cookies also applies for web beacons accordingly; web beacons are not used if you have objected to the use of the corresponding cookie.
In general, cookies do not pose any risk to your computer, since they are only text files and not executable programs.
No personal data are saved in the cookies used by us with which we are able to identify you as a person.
Depending on your browser settings, the cookie file can be saved or rejected. If the file is stored on your system, our web server will be able to recognize your device. For subsequent visits to our website and when switching between functions that require a password, this cookie can make browsing easier as you no longer need to repeatedly enter certain data. In this way, cookies facilitate the use of websites that require user input. In addition, cookies can help us offer you a browsing experience that is customized to your preferences.
If you do not want to have cookies saved on your system, you can disable them by following the instructions listed below:
You can disable cookies in the “Performance” and “Advertising/Targeting” categories on this website (see the section “What cookies are used on this website?” below). In order for us to accommodate your request to use the website without these cookies, we must use an anonymous cookie in its place.
In addition, you can changes the settings in your browser for it to either receive our cookies or use our website without cookies. In the latter case, however, your text entries in form fields cannot be saved for subsequent queries, which means you will have to retype them the next time you visit our site. Furthermore, there are key features of the website that cannot be used without cookies. Unfortunately, we are likewise unable to personally offer you any customized content in this case.
Your browser may also already be set to display a warning message each time it receives a cookie. Since the authentication cookie must be sent every time an individual page on our website is accessed, this message can become very bothersome. We, therefore, recommend that you change your browser settings so that cookies from www.eurowings.com are always allowed. You can also adjust this setting for any website individually.
In pursuit of our legitimate interests (i.e. analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our online presence within the meaning of Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR), we use cookie-based tracking software to determine the frequency with which our website is used and the number of our website’s users. However, with this software, we are unable to collect any personal information that reveals the identity of the user. Eurowings may provide statistics about customer behavior in relation to the use of the website to reputable third-party companies if these statistics do not contain any personal information that reveals the identity of the customer.
You can also disable this tracking software by disabling cookies in the “Performance” category (see above).
