We use marketing services to deliver attractive offers, from ourselves as well as from third parties. In doing so, we display advertisements through advertising partners or networks that use third-party cookies. These are activated when you visit our website and are only read by the respective advertising partner. We also want to show you advertisements that appeal to you. In order to do this we use retargeting on our website to ensure that the advertisements are tailored according to your interests. Using the cookies that are temporarily stored for this purpose, our retargeting partners are able to recognize visitors on our website under a pseudonym and only show the products that our visitors are interested in.
No personal or sensitive data is stored in the cookies used by our retargeting partner. And the information collected will not be merged with information that allows us to identify our visitors.
These services enable us to:
- measure the success and divide the advertising resources used between the advertising partners and ourselves;
- track which ads you've already viewed to prevent you from seeing the same thing over and over again;
- see the number of page views of our website;
- follow internal searches;
- see which product sites have been requested;
- recognize your login status.
We would like to point out that if these services are switched off for marketing purposes, you will still see advertisements. These advertisements can for example be adapted according to the content on the website. This type of content-related internet advertising is comparable to advertising you see on television - for example, if you watch a program about cooking, you will often see commercials for cooking products in the respective advertising blocks.

Based on website visits and surfing behavior, we can use this tool to determine target groups for advertising on Facebook, so-called 'Facebook-Ads'.

However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook so that it's possible for a conclusion to be established on the respective user profile. Data processing by Facebook is carried out in accordance with the Facebook Data Use Policy. If you do not have a Facebook account, this data processing does not apply to you.
