NECCESARRY COOKIES (TECHNICAL COOKIES)
These cookies are compulsory in order for a website to function. They are those cookies that allow for the recognition of a user who visits the site in a singular session, or, if necessary, through multiple session. This type of cookies can remember, for example, the elements that you previously added to a shopping cart when you visited an online shop, therefore allowing you to make an online payment. Consequently, these technical cookies allow us to offer you content that is adapted to your interests. Without these cookies, this site would not work correctly.

SOCIAL MEDIA COOKIES
Vorwerk is not responsible for the insertion of third-party cookies on the users’ computers by means of social media networks accessed by users. These cookies allow the identification of the user, especially when the functionality allows for the user’s permission to be asked and given in regards to content or posting an opinion.
Our site integrates several social media networks (Facebook, YouTube, Instagram) – the so-called social media plugins which specifically allow the user to recommend the content that they visualise. When the user accesses a page that contains one of these plugins, the browser establishes a direct connection with the server of said social media network. The content of the plugin will consequently be directed by the said social media network to the user’s browser and integrated in the webpage.
