Cookie policy

Our website (hereinafter: “the website”) uses cookies and similar technologies (for the sake of simplicity, all of these are summarized under “cookies”). Cookies are also placed by third parties commissioned by us. In the document below we inform you about the use of cookies on our website.

A cookie is a simple small file that is sent together with the pages of an Internet address and can be saved by the web browser on the PC or other device. The information stored therein can be sent to our servers or those of relevant third-party providers during subsequent visits.

A script is part of the program code that enables our website to function properly and interactively. This code is executed on our server or on your device.

A web beacon (also called a pixel tag) is a small invisible fragment of text or image on a website that is used to monitor traffic on the website. In order to make this possible, various data about you are stored using web beacons.

5.1 Technical or functional cookies

Some cookies ensure that parts of our website function properly and that your user preferences are known. By placing functional cookies, we make it easier for you to visit our website. In this way you do not have to repeatedly enter the same information when you visit our website or your items remain in your shopping cart until you pay for them, for example. We can place these cookies without your consent.

5.2 Analysis cookies

Since statistics are collected anonymously, no permission is required to place analytical cookies.

5.3 Marketing / tracking cookies

Marketing / tracking cookies are cookies or some other form of local storage that are used to create user profiles, to display advertisements or to track the user on this website or across websites for similar marketing purposes.

5.4 Social Media Buttons

We have added buttons for Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on our website to support functions (e.g. “Like”, “Pin”) or sharing (e.g. “Tweet”) on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. These buttons use pieces of code coming from Facebook, Twitter and Instagram themselves. This code places cookies. These social media buttons can also save and process certain information so that personalized advertising can be displayed to you.

Please read the privacy policy of these social networks (this can change regularly) to find out how they handle your (personal) data that they process with the help of these cookies. The retrieved data is anonymized as much as possible. Facebook, Twitter and Instagram are based in the United States.

When you visit our website for the first time, we will show you a pop-up with an explanation about cookies. As soon as you click on “Save settings”, you give us your consent to use all of the categories of cookies and plugins you have selected as described in this cookie policy. You can deactivate the use of cookies via your browser, but please note that our website may then not function properly.
