These cookies are used to track the success of marketing campaigns. Without providing this data, we are unable to analyze marketing campaigns and manage them appropriately. The processing of this data is based on Article 6(1), first sentence, item f) of the General Data Protection Regulation. ZAVALA follows the legal basis for evaluating the success of its advertising campaigns and accordingly controls them. As this involves processing the data of individuals who have expressed interest in our offers and services, it is not assumed that such individuals‘ fundamental rights are limited.

2. Local Storage
In order to make your use of our website as convenient as possible, in addition to cookies, we also use a technique called Local Storage (also known as „local data“ and „local memory“). Data is stored locally in the browser’s cache, so even after closing the browser window or ending the program – unless you clear the cache – the data will still exist and can be read. The following information is stored here:

appFileName: This stores the name of the included JavaScript file. This is necessary to clear local storage (and other browser memory) as soon as a new JavaScript file exists. This ensures that the memory in your browser is consistent with what we mention in the code.
appFileDate: Parallel to appFileName, the date is stored here. This is primarily intended for tracking during development so that we can quickly identify possible errors in the event of problems.
navBarFontSize: This is the font size of the main menu. Different languages have different word lengths, so the font size is dynamically set and remembered to ensure that the main menu always fits in one line.
Search: Your parameters are stored here.
The use of local storage serves to improve usability. The processing of this data is based on Article 6(1), first sentence, item f) of the General Data Protection Regulation. ZAVALA has a legitimate interest in optimizing the convenience of your online presence in order to increase the sales of its products and services. As this involves processing data of individuals who have expressed interest in our offers and services, it is not assumed that the fundamental rights of those individuals are limited.
If you do not want to use the local storage function, you can manage it in the settings of your respective browser depending on the platform in the operating system of the respective application.

If you visit our website as a user and the cookie is still active, together with Google, we can recognize that you clicked on the corresponding ad and were redirected to our website.
Each Google Ads client has a different cookie, so cookies cannot be tracked across Ads client websites.

However, you do not provide us with any personal information.
