Cookies (data of a website you have visited on your computer)
Some of our websites use cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses. Cookies serve to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain in your device's memory until you delete them. These cookies enable you to recognize your browser on your next visit.
You can set your browser to inform you about the use of cookies so that you can decide on a case-by-case basis whether to accept or reject a cookie. Alternatively, your browser can be set to automatically accept or always refuse cookies under certain conditions or to automatically delete cookies when you close your browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
Cookies, which are necessary to enable electronic communication or to provide certain functions (e.g. the shopping basket), are used according to Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies in order to guarantee an optimal and error-free service. If other cookies are also stored (e.g. to analyse your surfing behaviour), these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
