Cookie Banner Information
To provide transparency and control of cookies to our visitors, we use a cookie banner displayed when you first visit a IMILAB website. The cookie banner informs you about the cookies we create and use. You can use the cookie banner to provide or withdraw consent for the placement of cookies. This applies except for cookies in the "Essential" category, as these cookies are indispensable for the proper functioning of the website and are activated automatically.
If you reject all cookies, we may be unable to offer you some of our functionalities, services, or support. If you have previously visited our websites, you may also have to delete any existing cookies from your browser. If you would like to view or manage your cookie settings, please see our cookie banner which is displayed when you first access our website, or the “privacy settings” link located in the footer or as a tab on the lower right on our websites.
Once you have provided us with your consent, the key and consent status will be stored in a cookie so that the site can automatically read and follow your consent in all subsequent page requests and future end-user sessions for up to 12 months.
As a result, the settings always work per browser and device. If you delete the browser history and/or cookies, the settings you made are also affected. This means that the next time you visit our website, you will again be shown our cookie banner and will have to select the settings again.
