Data collection on our website – Cookies

The websites use so-called cookies in certain places. Cookies do not cause any harm to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our site more user-friendly, more efficient and more secure. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called ‘session cookies’. They are deleted automatically at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website.

You can set your browser such that you are advised when cookies are being used, and only allow cookies on an individual basis, refuse to accept cookies in specific situations or refuse them in general, and activate automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser. Deactivating cookies may restrict the functionality of this website.

Cookies required to perform electronic communication processes or to provide specific functions that you wish to use (e.g. shopping basket function) are saved on the basis of art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in saving cookies to ensure the technically fault-free and optimal provision of its services. Where other cookies (e.g. cookies to analyse your surfing behaviour) are saved, these are dealt with separately in this data protection statement.

The data subject can prevent our website from installing cookies at any time via the appropriate setting in their Internet browser, and thus permanently refuse the use of cookies. Furthermore, cookies already installed can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software program. This is an option in all standard Internet browsers. Deactivating the use of cookies in the Internet browser used may, in certain circumstances, mean that not all the functions of our website are fully available.
