Functional cookies: These allow us to make the website function better and be more user friendly for the visitor. For example: we store your log in details or what you have put in your shopping basket.
Analytical cookies: These ensure that an anonymous cookie is generated every time you visit a website. These cookies know whether you have visited the site before or not.

- the number of unique visitors
- how often users visit the site
- which pages are viewed by users

- at which page visitors left the site
Tracking cookies from others: These keep track of which pages you visit on the Internet to build your personal profile. This profile is not linked to your name, address, email address and the like as known to us, but only serves to match advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant to you as possible. We ask your permission for these cookies. Without your consent, these cookies will not be placed.
Social media related cookies: These allow social media, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, to register which articles and pages you share through their social media sharing buttons. They may also contain tracking cookies that track your browsing habits on the web.
