  • Deliver targeted advertisements for our products on other websites based on your visits to our websites
  • Combine relevant and targeted information to display advertisements that match your interests


Data processing and associated cookies may be used on our websites. Depending on the function and purpose, we divide data processing into different categories. The purpose of each category is described on this page and your consent to these categories can be adjusted here. Within a category, all data processing that may have been carried out for this purpose is listed, as well as the cookies that are usually used for data processing. At the top of the page, under “Adjustments and details”, you will find further information about the different cookie categories.


Cookies support a better and faster online experience. A cookie is a small text file that stores Internet settings. Almost every website uses cookies. When you first visit a website, cookies are downloaded from your internet browser. If you visit this website again using the same device, the website will recognize you again. This allows content to be displayed on the website that is tailored to your personal interests and needs. The cookies mentioned below are equivalent to HTML5 Session Web Storage and HTML5 Local Web Storage.



First party cookies are cookies that we use ourselves or through contracted service providers on this website and with which you interact when you continue your activities on our websites.



Our websites may also contain content from other providers who may use their own cookies. Such third parties may set cookies and request information during your visit to our websites, for example that you have loaded one of our websites. Please visit the third party websites to learn how they use cookies. Information about the respective third-party providers and references to their data protection declaration can be found in the detailed list under “Adjustments and Details”. You can reject third-party cookies at any time – simply use the corresponding function on our websites. If you object to all third-party cookies, we can only provide you with the functions on our websites that can be used without these cookies. Sections of our websites that incorporate content from third parties and thus require the setting of cookies by third parties will not be available to you in this case. You will be informed of this by a corresponding notice. If you still want to use the content of the website in such a case, this is only possible if you agree to the use of analysis and marketing cookies. Please use the corresponding function on our website to give or revoke your consent. For more information, see the list of cookies, which includes all integrated third-party data processing (e.g. tags/scripts/pixels).



If you refuse cookies that require your consent, we will of course accept this decision and will not set corresponding cookies. If you revoke your consent to these cookies, we will refrain from using cookies that require consent from the moment you visit the following page. We delete the latter if they are first-party cookies, as far as it is technically possible for us. You can refuse the use of analysis and marketing cookies: Unfortunately, this means we cannot find out what you like or dislike about our website so that we can then make improvements. Please note that we cannot delete third-party cookies. If you want to delete all third-party cookies, you must do this in your browser settings. We would like to point out one special feature: If you revoke your consent to these cookies, this does not mean that you will subsequently see less advertising. Rather, it means that the advertising you see is not individually tailored to your needs.



You can manage (activate, deactivate and delete) the cookie settings on our websites using the functions mentioned above, but also by changing your browser settings. Most browsers allow you to manage your cookies by either accepting or rejecting all cookies. You can find the procedure for managing and deleting cookies in the help function of your browser. If you change your cookie settings, certain cookies will be blocked. You may then not be able to take full advantage of some of the functions of our websites. We may also not be able to provide some content that you have previously viewed or used.



Information collected via cookies is primarily processed within the European Union (EU). In some cases, cookie information may also be processed by our commissioned service providers or by third-party cookie providers in countries outside the EU that do not offer a comparable level of data protection from an EU perspective. In some countries, such as the USA, there is a particular risk that local authorities may gain access to cookie information processed there for surveillance purposes and there are no effective legal remedies against access. We have implemented appropriate additional safeguards, such as contracts based on the EU Standard Contractual Clauses and the implementation of additional technical measures, to ensure that information collected through cookies is adequately protected. If you have given your consent to the “Analytics and marketing cookies” category, you also agree to the transfer and further processing of information collected via cookies to countries outside the EU.
