Cookies

Our Internet pages use cookies to make our Internet website user-friendly, improve performance as well as guarantee safe operation. Cookies are small text files that are stored temporarily or permanently on your hard drive. Cookies allow us to analyse the use of our Internet pages and to initiate continuous improvements.

You can deactivate the storage of cookies in your browser settings in whole or in part if you want to prevent your visit to our Internet website from being tracked. However, we wish to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of the Internet website after deactivation.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google") on our Internet pages. Google Analytics uses cookies and stores them on your system. The cookies allow us to analyse how you use our Internet pages.

The information generated by cookies about your use of the Internet pages is transferred to a Google server in the USA where it is stored. Google evaluates the information about your use of our Internet pages on our behalf, compiles reports on the activities on our Internet pages and provides us with other services related to the use of the Internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

You can disable Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Deactivate Google Analytics. This will set an opt-out cookie that prevents future collection of your data when you visit this website. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie (including your IP address) by installing the browser plugin.

Use of social media plug-ins

Our Internet pages contain social media plug-ins, e.g. for Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The plug-ins can be recognised by their respective logos. With the aid of these plug-ins you can share the contents of our Internet pages or recommend products to others.

Plug-ins provide a direct connection between your browser and the social networks. The plug-in informs the social network that you have visited our Internet website as a user. Regardless of whether you are a member of these social networks, the data (IP address, date and time of your visit, etc.) are transferred to the respective provider. As soon as you are logged in to a social network, this can assign your visit to our Internet website to your account. Your interactions with the plug-ins, for example, if you click on the Facebook button "Like" or leave a comment, will be transmitted directly to the social network by the browser and processed according to the rules applicable there. If you wish to prevent social networks from linking this information to your account, please log out of the social network before visiting our Internet website.

Plug-ins can be deactivated. Information on this topic is provided on the support pages of your browser.
