When we refer to “you” we mean you as a user or visitor of our website.

Consent
By accepting our use of cookies, apart from necessary cookies, you consent to our use of cookies as described in this Cookie Policy. You may at any time change or withdraw your cookie consent – See the section “How you can change your cookie settings, incl. opting out” below.

Cookies are small pieces of text that are sent to your web browser from a website you visit. A cookie file is stored in your web browser and enables the service or a third party to recognize you and facilitate your next visit and make the service more useful to you.

Cookies can be “persistent” or “session cookies”. Persistent cookies remain on your personal computer or mobile device when you go offline, while session cookies are deleted when you close your web browser.

In order to make visiting our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted again after the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your device and enable your browser to be recognized the next time you visit (so-called persistent cookies). If cookies are set, they collect and process specific user information such as browser and location data as well as IP address values. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which can differ depending on the cookie. The duration of the respective cookie storage can be found in the overview of the cookie settings of your web browser.
In some cases, cookies are used to simplify the ordering process by saving settings (e.g. remembering the content of a virtual shopping cart for a later visit to the website). If personal data is also processed by individual cookies we use, the processing takes place either for the execution of the contract, in the case of a given consent or to safeguard our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit.
Please note that you can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and individually decide whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general. Each browser differs in the way it manages cookie settings. This is described in the help menu of every browser, which explains how you can change your cookie settings. You can find these for the respective browser under the following links:

Please note that if you do not accept cookies, the functionality of our website may be restricted.

Cookies ensure that you remain logged in during your visit to our online shop, that all items are saved in your shopping cart, that you can shop safely and that the website continues to function smoothly. The cookies also ensure that we can see how our website is used and how we can improve it. In addition, depending on your preferences, our own cookies can be used to present you with targeted advertising that matches your personal interests.

For example, what type of cookies do we use?
These cookies are necessary for the website to function properly. Some of the following actions can be performed with these cookies.

  • Store items in a shopping cart for online purchases
  • Save your cookie settings for this website
  • Save language settings
  • When visiting a password-protected page, this cookie is set so future visits to the page from the same browser do not require login again.
  • The cookie name is unique for each password-protected page.
  • It contains an encrypted version of the password so future visits to the page will not require the password again.

What do I need to know about cookies?
There are different types of cookies and they are used for different purposes.

Below you can read about what a cookie is, the difference between first and third party cookies and session cookies vs. persistent cookies and what types of cookies we use on our website and why.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small piece of data that a website stores on your device when you visit it and which is then read when you later revisit the site. The word “cookies” in this policy and the consent also refers to other forms of automatic collection of data, e.g. Flash-cookies (Local Shared Objects), Web Storage (HTML5), Javascripts or cookies placed by other software.

A cookie may contain information about the website itself, a unique identifier that allows the site to recognise your web browser when you return to the website, additional data that serves the purpose of the cookie, and the lifespan of the cookie itself.

The word “cookies” or “cookie data” also covers information about IP and MAC addresses and other information about your device collected by said technologies.

Cookies are used to enable certain features (e.g. logging in), to track site usage (e.g. analytics), to store your user settings (e.g. timezone, notification preferences), and to personalise your content (e.g. advertising, language).

Session cookies vs. persistent cookies
Session cookies only last as long as your online session. This means that they will disappear from your computer or device when you close your browser. They are therefore also sometimes referred to as temporary cookies. Typically, session cookies are used to remember what a user put in their basket when they are browsing a website.

Persistent cookies are different. These cookies are sometimes called permanent cookies. They will stay on your computer or device after you close your browser. These types of cookies will expire according to the time specified in the cookie. You can see the specific duration of each persistent cookie below.

What’s the difference between first and third party cookies?
First party cookies are cookies that are set by the website that you are visiting and it’s only this website that can access and read these cookies.

Third party cookies are set by someone other than the owner of the website you’re visiting. As an example, some pages have content from other sites like YouTube. YouTube may set their own cookies on your browser when you play the video from YouTube. Cookies set by other sites and companies (i.e. third parties) can be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

We may engage third parties to assist with maintenance, operation, creation or functionality of our website, e.g. analytics providers and content partners. We grant these third parties’ access to selected information to perform specific tasks on our behalf.

We are, as a general rule, joint controller with providers of third-party cookies for the collection of personal data via such cookies and the disclosure to the provider. The provider of third-party cookies is data controller for the processing taking place after receiving the personal data from us. You can read more about the extent of our joint controllership with providers of third-party cookies in our privacy policy.

We recommend reading the provider’s privacy policy which can be found through links in the tables below, where you can also see which cookies on our website are first party cookies and third-party cookies.

Types of cookies and how we use them
Necessary cookies
Necessary cookies are required for the basic functionality of our website to work. We use necessary cookies to make it possible for you to only have to enter your username and password once during a visit to our website.

We also use necessary cookies to help with ensuring that you are given the option to accept or reject cookies, block non-necessary cookies from working until you give consent, and remember your cookie settings and choices. The cookies also help keep track of, if, and when, you gave consent to analytical cookies, T&Cs and email marketing.

Necessary cookies are also used for payment processing.

It’s not necessary to accept nor possible to reject the use of necessary cookies as they are core for the functionality of our website.

Here are the necessary cookies we use, what we use them for, the specific cookies providers and each cookie’s duration:

Analytical cookies

Analytical cookies gather statistics. We use this information to make our website even better. The information collected via the analytical cookies track how you use our website during your visit. It helps us understand visitor usage patterns, identify, and diagnose problems or errors you may encounter, and make better strategic decisions in improving the website experience.

We will only set analytical cookies on your device if you give us your consent.

Marketing cookies
Marketing cookies are used in determining what promotional content is more relevant and appropriate to you and your interests. Websites may use them to deliver targeted advertising or to limit the number of times you see an advertisement. This helps companies improve the effectiveness of their campaigns, and the quality of content presented to you. These cookies may be set by the website you’re visiting (first party) or by third-party services. Marketing cookies set by a third-party service may be used to track you on other websites that use the same third-party service.

Here are the marketing cookies we use, what we use them for, the specific cookie providers and each cookie’s duration:

LinkedIn

Cookies used by LinkedIn for identifying the Browser ID (set from LinkedIn share buttons and ad tags), for routing from Share buttons and ad tags, setting default locale/language.

Pixels
Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our website or opened an email that we have sent them. This allows us, for example, to monitor the traffic patterns of users from one page within our website to another, to understand whether you have come to our website from an online advertisement displayed on a third-party website, to improve site performance, and to measure the success of email marketing campaigns.

How you can change your cookie settings, including opting out
As part of our cookie solution, we always ask for your consent to cookies, except for necessary cookies, before placing cookies on your device.

We also always give you the option to change your consent. If you at one point gave consent to non-necessary cookies on our website, you can always change which cookies you will give consent to. Just look for the shield on our website. If you press the shield, your cookie settings will appear, allowing you to always change your settings and reject cookies.

It’s also possible to instruct your browser to refuse cookies from our website. Most browsers are configured to accept cookies by default, but you can update these settings to either refuse cookies altogether, or to notify you when a website is trying to set or update a cookie. If you use multiple browsers and wish to block cookies or change or withdraw your consent, remember to do this in all browsers.

If you browse websites from multiple devices, you may also need to update your settings on each individual device.

Although some cookies can be blocked with little impact on your experience of a website, blocking all cookies may mean you are unable to access certain features and content on the site.

How often will we update this Cookie Notice?
We may update this Cookie Policy from time to time in order to reflect, for example, changes to the cookies we use or for other operational, legal or regulatory reasons. Please therefore re-visit this Cookie Policy regularly to stay informed about our use of cookies and related technologies. The date at the bottom of this Cookie Policy indicates when it was last updated.
