We use so-called cookies or other technologies such as web beacons (collectively referred to as “cookies”) to optimize our website. There are two types of cookies:
- Session cookies, i.e. small text files sent by a specific server when you visit a website and saved in the buffer memory on your hard drive. This file as such contains a so-called session ID, which allows us to classify various inquiries made by your browser to the overall session. This allows us to recognize your computer when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They are used, for instance, to allow you to use the shopping cart function across multiple pages.
- Persistent cookies (these are also small text files saved on your device) which remain on your device and allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. These cookies are saved on your hard drive and automatically deleted after the specified time. They have terms ranging from 1 month to 10 years. These cookies help us make our services more user-friendly, effective, and secure, and allow us to show information on the page that is specially tailored to your interests.
5.1 Essential Cookies
Essential cookies (also called technical necessary cookies) are cookies which are necessary for the functioning of our website, e.g. login cookies, shopping cart cookies, cookies of the Usercentrics Consent Management Platform which are used for the administration of your cookie settings as well as the Google Tag Manager Cookies which we use to integrate and administer the cookies used on our website.
5.2 Statistic Cookies
Statistic Cookies help us to optimize our website and to provide you with the best possible information. When a cookie is activated, it is assigned an identification number. Your personal data is not associated with this identification number. Your name, IP address, or similar data that would make it possible to associate the cookie with your person are not stored in the cookie. Based on the cookie technology we only receive pseudonymized information, such as information on which pages of our website you have visited, which products you have viewed, etc. Legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent).
5.2.1 Use of Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” text files saved on your computer which allow us to analyze your use of the website. Information generated by the cookie on page visitors’ use of this website is typically transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. We have activated IP anonymization on this website (anonymizeIp). However, Google abbreviates your IP address within a member state of the European Union or in another contracting state to the Agreement on the European Economic Area in advance. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, assemble reports on website activities, and provide us with further services related to website usage and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the course of Google Analytics is not combined with other information from Google. You can prevent cookies from being saved by changing your browser software settings; however, if you do so we would like to inform you that you may not be able to use all the functions of our website in full. You can also prevent transmission of the data generated by the cookie regarding your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. As an alternative to the browser plug-in or on browsers on mobile devices, you can click the following link to set an opt-out cookie that will prevent Google Analytics from recording data within this website in the future (this opt-out cookie will only function in this browser and for this domain. If you delete the cookies in your browser, you will have to click this link once again): [Deactivate Google Analytics] or use the privacy settings via the Usercentrics Consent Management Platform.

5.3 Marketing Cookies
Marketing Cookies help us to carry out online marketing activities. They also serve the purpose to measure marketing campaigns on external websites as well as to optimize our marketing measures. Legal basis for the processing of data is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (consent).
5.3.1 Google Adwords
Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you accessed our website via an ad displayed by Google, Google Adwords will save a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie will be saved when a user clicks an ad displayed by Google. These cookies become invalid after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user clicked the ad and was transferred to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a unique cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained through the conversion cookies is used to prepare conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. Customers receive the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were transferred to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to take part in tracking, you can refuse to allow the cookie required for this purpose to be saved – for instance by deactivating browser settings that generally allow cookies to be saved, or setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com.” Please note that you may not delete opt-out cookies if you do not want measured data to be recorded. If you have deleted all the cookies in your browser, you must re-set the specific opt-out cookie.
