General information on cookies
A cookie is a small file that is stored in the browser of the end device when a website is visited. Cookies can identify the end device concerned, for instance, or ensure the complete and correct display of our website. Cookies also help to provide the services integrated on a website, personalise content and individually adapt and analyse advertisements.
Types of cookies
Depending on their function and purpose, cookies can be divided into five categories: essential cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, analysis cookies and cookies for marketing purposes. Please note that not all of the cookies listed here are used if you visit our website on a mobile device.
These are cookies that are required so that you can navigate on our web pages and use their basic features.
Performance cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of a web page and thus the user experience. Performance cookies collect information about how our web pages are used, for instance the type of internet browser and operating system, the domain name of the website from which you came, the number of visits, average time spent on the site, and the pages viewed.
Functional cookies enable a website to store information that has already been entered (such as user name, login, language selection or your location) and thus offer the user improved and more personalised functions.
These cookies enable us to determine how our website is used and, for instance, which preferences and search terms are used to call it up.
Cookies for marketing purposes
Marketing cookies are deployed to offer content that is more relevant to the user and adapted to his/her interests. They are also employed to measure and control the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether a web page was visited or not and which content was accessed. This information may be shared with third parties such as advertisers. These cookies are often linked to third-party site functionality.
Deleting cookies and do-not-track settings
You can delete specific cookies or the entire cookie stock via your browser settings. In addition, you receive information and instructions on how these cookies can be deleted or their storage blocked in advance, depending on the provider of your browser, under the following links:
You can also individually manage the cookies of many companies and functions that are deployed for advertising. To do this, use the appropriate tools, available at www.aboutads.info/choices/ or www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
Most browsers also offer a “do-not-track” feature that allows you to indicate that you do not want to be “followed” by websites. If this feature is enabled, the browser will tell ad networks, websites and applications that you do not want to be tracked for behaviour-based advertising and the like. For information and instructions on how to edit this feature, see the links below, depending on your browser provider:

Explanation of the tools, how they work and notes on data privacy
Google Analytics is an analytical tool of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google). With the help of Google Analytics, web pages can be analysed to determine where users come from and how they behave on the website. On our behalf, Google employs cookies to evaluate the use of our website and compile reports on website activity for us. However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called “AnonymizeIP” extension, which initially shortens your IP address when you visit our website. This means that a personal reference is no longer possible.
We have concluded an agreement with Google for order processing on the basis of the so-called EU standard contractual clauses.
