Cookies and similar technologies
Cookies enable us to recognise your web browser. This is useful because then you don’t need to repeatedly input your data, specify choices, put products in your shopping basket, or modify your settings. It also means we can improve the performance of our website and better understand visitor behaviour on our website, and other parties can learn about your surfing behaviour so that they can show personalised advertisements across several websites and omit non-relevant advertisements.
Which cookies do we use, and how?
Most of the cookies we use are automatically deleted by your computer or mobile device at the end of the browser session. We also use permanent cookies, which are stored on your computer or mobile device after your browser session ends. At your next visit to our website your preferred inputs and settings are then automatically recognized. These cookies are automatically deactivated after a pre-set expiry time. They are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Thanks to these cookies, for example, the site displays information specifically matched with your interests.
The retargeting technology that we use enables us to address advertising to those users who have taken an interest in our Online Shop and our products in the past. We are convinced that displaying advertising that is personalized and matched with the individual’s interests is more interesting to the user than advertising that lacks any such personal connection. Retargeting displays advertising on the basis of a cookie-based analysis of the user’s previous behavior.
What data is stored in the cookies?
The cookies that we use do not store any personal data and cannot be attributed to any particular individual. When a cookie is activated, it is assigned with an identification number.
How can you prevent cookies from being stored?
Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. But you can use the settings to instruct your browser not to accept cookies, or to ask you each time before a cookie is accepted from a website visited by you. You can also delete cookies from your computer or mobile device by using your browser’s corresponding function. If you decide to deactivate our cookies, you will not see certain information on our website or be able to use some functions designed to improve your visit.
