4. Cookies/tracking and other technologies in connection with use of our website
This means we can recognise you when you return to our website or use our app, although we will not be aware of your identity.
Besides cookies that remain only for one session and are deleted when you leave our website ("session cookies"), cookies can also be used to store user settings and other information for a certain period of time (e.g. two years) ("persistent cookies"). You can adjust your browsers settings to reject cookies, to store cookies only for one session, or to delete them earlier.
The default setting of most browsers is to accept cookies. We use persistent cookies to store user settings (e.g. language, country, browser settings, auto-login). You may not be able to use all features (e.g. language selection, shopping cart, order processes) if you disable cookies.
In some places in our newsletters and other marketing emails we integrate where permitted visible and hidden image elements. When activated, they enable our servers to identify whether and when you open the email. This allows us to measure responses, to acquire a better understanding of how you use our service, and to tailor our services to meet your needs. You can block this function in your email program; the default setting of most programs is that you must do this yourself.
You consent to the inclusion of these technologies by using our website and apps, as well as by consenting to the receipt of newsletters and other marketing emails. Should you object, you must adjust your browser and email program settings or delete the app if you are unable to adjust the settings accordingly.
