Our websites use what are known as cookies. Cookies are small text files and they do not cause any harm to your end device. They are either saved on your end device temporarily for the duration of a session (session cookies) or permanently (permanent cookies). Session cookies are deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device until you delete them yourself or they are deleted automatically by your web browser. Cookies perform different functions. Many cookies are necessary from a technical point of view because certain website functions would not work without them (e.g. shopping cart function, log ins, displaying videos, country or language selection, or your consent to the cookies itself). Cookies that are needed to execute the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you desire (e.g. shopping cart function) are stored based on Art. 6 para. 1(f) GDPR. The operator of the website has a legitimate interest in saving cookies in order to ensure technically faultless and optimised provision of his/her services. If consent has been sought accordingly (e.g. consent to the saving of cookies), processing takes place solely on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1(a) of GDPR; consent can be withdrawn at any time. You can set your browser to inform you when cookies are placed on your computer and only to allow cookies in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and to activate automatic deletion of cookies when the browser is closed. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted. If cookies are used by third-party companies or for analytical purposes, you are informed of this separately within the context of this data protection declaration and, where applicable, your consent is sought.
We use analytical cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to optimise the user experience (UX) of our website. When you visit our website again, these cookies enable us to automatically identify the fact that you have already visited us. They collect information on how the website is used, in particular the following information: number of visitors to our website (new and repeat visitors), date, time and duration of visits, pages viewed, number of visits, number of successful registrations of users, user’s exit and entry pages, content downloaded, user’s browser type, information on the operating system, location of the IP address, language setting of the browser and source of the visit. This data gives us a bettering understanding of how our website is used, allowing us to improve its functionality.
