Cookie Policy

Here we explain to you which types of cookies we use and how you can restrict or prevent the use of cookies.

Types of cookies

We use cookies that differ in origin, purpose and expiration time.


First-party cookies are stored and managed directly by us. We use such cookies, for example, to obtain information about your user behaviour on our website.

Third party cookies are deposited and managed by partners. This is the case, for example, if you register for our newsletter or take part in a survey or competition.


Technically necessary cookies enable the basic functionality and usability of the website. These cookies store, for example, the language you have selected or the contents of your shopping cart.

Cookies for statistical purposes make it possible, for example, to obtain information on the number of visits to various areas of our website or on the frequency of visits or the behaviour and habits of users. This enables us to continuously improve our offer.


Temporary cookies are only stored temporarily on your end device. These include, for example, the so-called session cookies. They store a unique session ID, which is necessary for the assignment of products you have placed in the shopping cart or for the assignment of your customer data. When you close your browser, these cookies are automatically deleted.

Permanent cookies remain stored on your end device even after you have closed the browser. This enables us to recognize you, for example, when you visit our websites at a later date. These cookies are automatically deleted after a preset period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. They are also deleted if a new version of the cookies is installed, if you object to these cookies or if you remove the cookies from your terminal device yourself via the security settings of your browser.
