  • Analysis and marketing cookies require the user's consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR.
  • Cookies, by which data is transferred to third countries, require the consent of the user (Article 49(1)(a) GDPR)

Purpose of the data processing
The purpose of using technically necessary cookies is to simplify the use of websites for users. Certain functions of websites cannot be offered without the use of cookies. This applies, for example, to the integrated application with which consent can be obtained for the use of functional cookies or for the provision of the shopping basket in the web shop.

These purposes also include our legitimate interest in the processing of personal data in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) for the use of cookies not requiring consent.

The purpose of the consent management service is to comply with legal requirements regarding the legal basis for cookie use.

Analysis and marketing cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. The use of marketing cookies enables us to provide you with personalised content and offers that match your interests. These cookies are only activated if you give us your consent to do so.

Transfer to third countries
If consent is given, data may be transferred to the USA, through third-party cookies.

According to the case law of the European Court of Justice (judgement of 16.07.2020, ref.: C-311/18 ("Schrems II")) there is no adequate level of data protection in the USA. There is a risk that your data may be processed by U.S. authorities, for control and monitoring purposes, possibly without the possibility of legal recourse.
