Cookies for a better browsing experience

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files, created to save certain data from the websites that you visit. For example the selection of a language, your connection data or other settings. Cookies are necessary to improve the operation of the website and are used for statistical purposes. They do not record your name, address or other personal data.

Only the website that created the cookie can access the file. The file itself only contains text and cannot perform any action on your computer. It is therefore only used to provide additional information to your browser. A cookie – since it contains only a small amount of data – is therefore harmless.

However, if you feel that your privacy is not being respected, you can adjust your browser settings to prevent cookies from being stored on your computer or to prevent cookies from saving data. Navigation on the Global Power Systems GmbH website will still be possible.
