Cookies are small parcels of data that are sent by the webserver hosting our website to your browser. They are stored on your device and can be accessed by our webserver when you visit the website at a later time. Cookies store information about your browsing preferences and we can use them to improve your browsing experience. We distinguish between two types of cookie: session cookies and permanent cookies.
Session cookies are used during a single browsing session (e.g., browsing our online shop) to associate data stored by our server with you/your internet browser (e.g., to keep track of items you’ve added to your shopping cart). Session cookies are deleted when you close your web browser.
Permanent cookies are used to store your preferences or keep you logged in between separate visits to our website (e.g., the website language). They remain on your computer when you close your web browser. Whether and when permanent cookies are deleted is determined by your web browser settings (for example, some browsers delete permanent cookies if you have not visited the website for a month). When you use our website, you consent to the use of permanent cookies.
When you visit our website, you will be offered the opportunity to disable all cookies other than those necessary for the operation of the website.
Pixel tags (sometimes known as tracker pixels, web beacons, clear GIFs, or 1x1 pixels) are tiny images that are loaded when your web browser accesses our website. When your web browser loads the pixel tag, the server hosting the pixel tag collects and stores information in its log files – this may include the date and time of your visit, and information about your end device such as its screen resolution or IP address.
