Cookies and audience measurement
We use cookies for our websites. Cookies are text files that are stored on a computer system via an Internet browser. We use these cookies both as a technical means for the provision of services on our platforms and for the analysis of the behavior of our visitors on the websites and, on this basis, to improve the user-friendliness of our offers. We may also use other techniques for this purpose, such as tracking pixels or a code in the apps. We may also use these cookies or other techniques to send you targeted job postings and other content of interest to you.

Cookies are pieces of information transmitted from our web server or third-party web servers to users’ web browsers and stored for later retrieval. The use of cookies as part of the pseudonymous range measurement informs users in the context of this privacy policy.
The consideration of this online offer is also possible with the exclusion of cookies. If users do not want cookies stored on their computer, they will be prompted to disable the option in their browser’s system settings. Saved cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies may lead to functional restrictions of certain online offers.


COUTIER INDUSTRIE does not share your personal data with third parties in any way.

However, We must be required to share information or data to:

Respond to any applicable law or regulation, or any legal process or other request from the authorities.
Enforce relevant policies, including investigating possible violations.
Detect, prevent or otherwise confront fraud, security breaches or technical problems.
Provide protection against harm to the rights, property or safety of users and the public, as permitted or required by law.

With respect to non-personally identifiable information, we may share it with interested third parties to help them understand the patterns of use of our services and those of our partners. This non-personally identifiable information is anonymous usage data, such as platform types, number of clicks, exit pages, etc. Additionally, non-personally identifiable information may be stored indefinitely.


Content or services from third-party providers, such as maps or fonts from other websites, may be included in our online site.

The inclusion of content from third-party providers always requires the third-party providers to perceive the IP address of users, as they cannot send the content to users’ browser without the IP address.

The IP address is therefore required for the presentation of this content. Additionally, third-party content providers (e.g. Google Maps, social networks such as LinkedIn) may set their own cookies and process user data for their own purposes. In the process, user profiles can be created from the processed data.

Links to other websites
Our websites may contain links to other providers to which this Privacy Policy does not apply. When you leave one of our websites, find and read the privacy statements of each website that collects personally identifiable information. We are not responsible for the content or privacy and security practices or policies of any third-party sites or services to which links or access are provided through our websites. We encourage you to learn about the privacy and security policies of third parties before disclosing information to them.

If you use the functionality of social media plug-ins such as those provided by LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook Inc. or any other social network, they may log your IP address and, if you are logged into your account while you visit our website, the two pieces of information will be linked. The plug-in will create a direct link between your browser and the servers of that social networking company.

We have no influence on the nature and amount of data that the module will transmit to these servers.


You have a right to access, rectify or erase personal data concerning you, and, where applicable, a right to the portability of your data.

You can request the limitation or oppose the processing of your data, or if necessary, withdraw your consent.

We reserve the right to modify our legal notice and Personal Data Protection in order to adapt them to changed legal situations, or to changes in the service and data processing.

This only applies to data processing declarations. If user consent is required or if elements of the privacy policy contain provisions of the contractual relationship with users, changes will only be made with the consent of users.

Users are requested to regularly inform themselves of the content of the legal and GDPR notices.
