Cookies and Web Beacons.
Synformulas GmbH may use cookies and web beacons to understand user behaviour and preferences, improve the Site, and manage content. Cookies are text files that contain pieces of information that a portal/website transfers to an individual’s hard drive for recordkeeping purposes.
