In order to make our website as user-friendly as possible, we – like many other renowned companies – use “cookies”.


Cookies are small text files that are sent when visiting an internet page and are stored in a user’s browser. In case the respective internet page is accessed once again, the user’s browser sends back the content of the cookies and, thus, allows for the recognition of the user. Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies” that are deleted when you end your browser session. This Cookie Policy should be read in conjunction with our Privacy Policy, here and sets out how RIMOWA will use cookies in connection with the Site. Typically cookies do not collect personal data but may be used to create a user profile. In this case, you will be informed about this in the Privacy Policy here.



Cookies may be set either by the Site (“first party cookies”) or by third party websites who run content on the website you are looking at (“third party cookies”).


The cookies used on our website are categorised, as follows:


• Cookies which are “strictly necessary” for the functionality of the website’s platforms. These cookies are essential in order to enable users to move around the website and fulfil express requests from you as a user of the website (e.g., cookies which serve the purpose of identifying or authenticating our users so you do not need to log in again very time you visit the website or cookies that temporarily store certain user entries like shopping cart content or content of an online form).


• “Functionality” cookies which allow the website to remember choices you make and your preferences for example where you register/sign-up for events, products and/or services or to set the language or the currency.


• “Performance/Analytics” cookies which collect information about how users navigate the website, for example, which pages users access most frequently. They identify how users interact with our website, any errors that occur, which pages are not used often, which pages take a long time to load, which pages users tend to visit and in what order. These cookies do not collect any information which could identify you and are only used to help us improve how our website works and understand what interests our website’s users (e.g., clicked ad banners, visited subpages, search queries asked).


• “Targeting or advertising” cookies used to deliver adverts relevant to an identified machine or other device (not a named or otherwise identifiable person) which are tailored to interests associated with the website activity tied to that machine or device (e.g., clicked ad banners, visited subpages, search queries asked). For example, if a cookie on a third party website recognises that a particular product was purchased from a particular device, that cookie may “talk to” marketing cookies on the website to ensure advertisements about similar products displayed on the website are accessed from that device. These cookies are also used to limit the number of times a user sees an advertisement as well as to help measure the effectiveness of an advertising campaign. They may also remember that the website has been visited from a device and share that information with marketing organisations. The marketing cookies on our website are operated by third parties with our permission. Marketing cookies are used to monitor from which advertising source a user was directed towards our website so that we know whether it is worth us investing in that particular advertising source.
