The following cookies are used on this website:
- Functional cookies
These cookies are necessary for you to be able to surf successfully on the website. They enable you to explore the website and use the website’s functions. Functional cookies also increase the user-friendliness of the website by remembering your choices (e.g. language preference).
- Performance cookies
With performance cookies, we collect anonymous data on use of this website. This anonymous data includes the number of visitors, the time they spend on a web page, error messages and how people reach our site. We use Google Analytics for this. Statistics are prepared on the basis of the information collected.

The statistics and other reports are always anonymous and can never be traced back to individuals.
- Advertising cookies
With the Facebook Conversion Pixel, we record purchasing behaviour after viewing an advertisement in Facebook. This cookie helps us monitor and adapt our Facebook advertisements. We do not store this information in any way. It is only added to the user’s Facebook profile.

Due to the way the Internet and websites work, we may not always be aware of cookies placed by third parties via our website. This is particularly the case when our web pages contain so-called embedded elements; these are texts, documents, pictures or films that are stored by another party, but that are shown on, in or via our website. If you come across cookies on this website that fall into this category and that we have not mentioned above, please let us know. Or contact the third party directly and ask which cookies they place, the reason for the cookie and how they have guaranteed your privacy.
