This policy explains what cookies are and why we use them.

What are Cookies and what does GEA use them for?


GEA uses cookies and similar technology on its websites for a variety of reasons which we will describe in this policy. When this policy refers to “cookies”, it refers to both cookies and similar technologies which function in the same way as cookies. When this policy refers to “computers”, it refers to computers, smartphones and all other devices used for accessing the internet.

When you visit a website, it may retrieve or store information about your browser. This usually happens in the form of cookies. Cookies are small text files used by websites to make the user experience more efficient. They allow your browser to remember certain pieces of information which internet servers can later retrieve and use. When you visit a GEA website we may send a cookie to your computer.

By law, we may store cookies on your device if they are strictly necessary for the operation of this site. For all other cookie types, we need your consent. 

Many cookies we use are designed to enhance your experience of using the internet. We may also use cookies to conduct research and analytics to improve our websites, services and products. This may include compiling statistical information on how often you use our websites, which pages you viewed and for how long.

For a further description of any cookie we use, please find all information in the Cookie List below. 

Can I prevent cookies from being sent to and stored on my computer?

As a default, most browsers are set to accept strictly necessary cookies. However, you can block all cookies by changing your browser settings. Your browser’s “Help” function will tell you how to do this. You may also be able to configure your browser settings to block on certain types of cookie or to notify you each time a new cookie is about to be stored on your computer, so you can then accept or reject it. Again, your browser’s “Help” function will explain how to do this, should you have this function available to you. We do however point out that in this case you will maybe not be able to use all functions of this website.

How can I adjust my cookie preferences?

Upon your first view of our website, you will be given different options for cookie settings and asked for your preferences. Please note, that based on a legal permission, without requiring your consent, GEA uses technically necessary cookies to enable the website functions unless you blocked cookies within your browser settings. 

By clicking the "Accept All Cookies" button, you give us your consent to use preference cookies, statistics cookies and marketing cookies.

By clicking the "Refuse or edit consent" button, you will receive all information about the individual cookies and can also decide whether and which further data processing you wish to consent to.

You can (partially) change and revoke your consent at any time by clicking on "Cookie settings" at the bottom of every page.
