We use so-called cookies on our website. Cookies are small text files or other storage technologies that are stored and stored on your device by the internet browser you use. These cookies process certain information about you on an individual basis, such as your browser or location data or your IP address.

This processing makes our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer, as the processing enables, for example, the reproduction of our website in different languages or the offer of a shopping cart function.

The legal basis for this processing is Art. 6 Paragraph 1 lit b.) GDPR, provided that these cookies are used to process data to initiate or process contracts.

If the processing does not serve to initiate or process a contract, our legitimate interest lies in improving the functionality of our website. The legal basis is then Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.
