Cookies

This website partially uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies allow us to make our product more user-friendly, more efficient and more secure. Cookies are small text files, stored by your browser on your computer.

Most cookies that we use are so-called "session cookies". They will be deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain on your terminal device until you delete them. Those cookies enable us to recognize your browser on your next visit.

You can adjust your browser to inform you when cookies are placed, to individually allow cookies, or to generally exclude cookies in certain cases, as well as to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. The deactivation of cookies may impair the functionality of this website.

Cookies, which are necessary to allow electronic communications or to provide certain functions you wish to use (such as the shopping cart), are stored pursuant to Article 6 Section 1f of DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized service provided free of technical errors. If other cookies (such as those used to analyze your surfing behavior) are also stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.
