Cookies & Tracking
Cookies and/or other tracking technologies may be stored on your device during or after your visit to the Parship website.
A cookie is a small text file that is sent to your device when you access a website and is stored in your browser. If you access the same webpage again later, your browser will check its cookies and will recognize you as a returning user.
Third party technologies such as scripts, pixels and tags may also store cookies on your device.
Some cookies are automatically erased after the end of the browser session ( “session cookies”), whereas other cookies are stored for a predetermined amount of time or permanently in your browser, and then erase themselves automatically ( “temporary” or “permanent” cookies).
In principle, no data that identifies you as an individual (e.g. name, e-mail addresses or IP addresses) is stored in cookies. Instead, cookies typically contain a code (identifier) and information on the duration of data storage and, if necessary, certain technical features (e.g. security functions).
What cookies does Parship use in general?
Parship classifies cookies and other tracking technologies (hereinafter also jointly referred to as “Cookies”) into different categories depending on their function and purpose.

These cookies enable you to navigate safely on our website and use the functions as desired. Without these cookies, Parship cannot provide its essential services. We only use these cookies when you visit our website. These cookies are also used to retrieve the optimised website display when you access our website with a mobile device, so that your mobile data volume is not unnecessarily consumed.
The legal basis is the legitimate interest of Parship and its members that the Parship Service is safe, easy to use and constantly being improved.
