We use session-cookies which are automatically deleted from your device after the end of the browser session and persistent cookies which are automatically deleted from the device after expiration of the specific given time.

The website can also be used without cookies. You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your respective browser, restrict it to certain websites or set your browser in such a way that it informs you as soon as a cookie is sent. You can also delete cookies from your device's hard drive at any time using your browser. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser.

Should you wish to contact us by e-mail, please note that e-mails will be in an unencrypted form and will therefore be susceptible to the security risks typically associated with such methods of communication.

6.2 AMENDMENT, BLOCKING AND DELETION / WITHDRAWAL OF CONSENT

If you would like any data to be amended, blocked or deleted, please contact us by e-mail: horizon@horizon-globex.com.

Session information exchanged between your hardware and us is encrypted. We do not accept liability for any unauthorized access or loss or personal data that is beyond our control.

Our digital presence may contain links to other digital third-party content (e. g. by clicking a hyperlink) which is outside our control and is not covered by this Privacy Policy.

8. CHANGES TO THE PRIVACY POLICY

Changes to this Privacy Policy may be required from time to time, for example due to the ongoing development of our digital presence or as a result of changes in legislation. Horizon Globex GmbH therefore reserves the right to change the Privacy Policy at any time, with effect from a future date. Accordingly, we recommend that you re-read this Privacy Policy on a regular basis.
