The web pages partially use so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and they do not contain any computer viruses. Cookies help to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files placed on your computer and stored by your browser.
Most cookies used by us are so-called “session cookies”. They will be deleted automatically after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to re-identify your browser upon your next visit.
You can customize your browser in a way that enables you to draw information on the placement of cookies and that only allows cookies in particular cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies in particular cases or in general, and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing your browser. The deactivation of cookies can restrict the functionality of this website.
Cookies required for implementing the electronic communication process, or for making available specific functions on your demand (for example, shopping cart function), are stored on the grounds of Article 6 Subsection 1 Part f GDPR. The website operator has a reasonable interest in storing cookies for the purpose of providing an error-free and optimized experience of his services.
