Cookies we use

We may use the following cookies on our Website:

Functional cookies: using these cookies is essential in order to ensure that our Website operates properly. They are used to save your user preferences, detect misuse of our Website and services and to distribute the load on our servers, which keeps our Website available. Certain services you may request cannot be provided without these cookies.

Web statistics cookies: we use these cookies to determine which parts of our Website interest our visitors. This enables us to make the structure, navigation, and content of our Website as user friendly as possible for you. These cookies are used to (i) keep track of the number of visitors to our web pages; (ii) keep track of the amount of time each user spends on our web pages; (iii) determine the order in which a visitor visits the various pages of our Website; (iv) assess which parts of the Website need to be changed; and (v) optimize the Website.

Google Analytics: The Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies to analyze how you use our Website. The information generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, Google Analytics provides an IP masking feature, which can be activated by us. IP masking is activated on this Website, which means that your IP address will be shortened by Google (IP masking/truncating) before it is collected, within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there.

Google will use this information on behalf of MTD to evaluate your use of the Website, to compile reports on Website activity and to provide other services related to Website activity and internet usage to us.

However, you may refuse the use of these cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser as described in this Policy. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of our Website. Please note that on the Website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking).


Social media cookies: our Website may integrate certain third-party plug-ins (such as a Facebook "like" button). Even if you do not click on these plug-ins, they may collect information about you, such as your IP address and the pages that you view. These plugins are governed by the privacy policy of the third party providing them.


Advertising cookies: our Website may also enable third-party tracking mechanisms to collect data over time and across unaffiliated websites for use in interest-based advertising. For example, third parties may use the fact that you visited the Website to send you online ads for MTD products on third party websites. In addition, our third-party advertising partners might use information about you to send you targeted advertisements based on your online behavior in general.


We or our third-party service providers also may use collected information to establish connections among related web browsers and devices (such as smartphones, tablets, computers, and TVs) for targeted advertising, analytics, attribution, and reporting purposes. These third parties may match your browsers or devices if you log into the same online service on multiple devices or if your devices share similar attributes that support an inference that they are used by the same person or household. This means that information about your activity on Website or apps on your current browser or device may be combined with information collected from your other browsers or devices.
