The B2SHARE service uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an web browser.

Many websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific web browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited websites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the dats subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific web browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID.

The B2SHARE service needs cookies for its functionality. It would not be possible to determine whether a user is logged in or not without the use of cookies.

By means of a cookie, the information and offers on our service can be optimized with the user in mind. Cookies allow us, as previously mentioned, to recognize our service users. The purpose of this recognition is to make it easier for users to utilize our service. The service user that uses cookies, e.g. does not have to enter access data each time the service is accessed, because this is taken over by the service, and the cookie is thus stored on the user's computer system.

You may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our service by means of a corresponding setting of the web browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular web browsers. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in the web browser used, not all functions of our service may be entirely usable.
