Specific information regarding cookies and other tracking technologies
Cookies are small text files stored in the memory of your browser or device when you visit a website or press a specific button. Cookies allow a website to recognize a particular device or browser for a variety of purposes. These purposes may include: the usability of the website (for example, in the case of session cookies or cookies for recognizing the device and screen format) or, for example, information on whether a particular offer or specific advertising medium has been clicked. The collection of such data happens either anonymously or by means of pseudonymised usage profiles. That means, these are not intended to identify you as a person (if different, please refer to the technologies and cookies explained below). Although only pseudonymised data is collected and processed, in many cases this is still regarded as processing of personal data.
You can disable or remove cookies by using the settings or tools that are available as part of most browser technologies. The preferences must be set separately for each browser you use, with different browsers offering different functionality and options.
Other tracking technologies
With similar tracking technologies (or “technologies” for short) we refer to e.g. small graphics (such as “pixel tags” or “clear gifs”) that may be integrated into our websites, services or features. These typically work with cookies, which in turn regularly contain the pseudonymous identifier.
If you wish to disable the tracking technologies and related cookies, you can do so through special settings on your browser. However, some features of our website are only available through the deployment of cookies. If you disable or opt-out of cookies, your use of the Websites and Services may be restricted or unavailable.

These include, for example, the HTTP session ID and session cookies, status, device and preference settings which are stored temporarily, local form data storage or information about voucher codes entered as well as the settings cookie, which saves your cookie preferences made at the beginning of the page visit. This includes technologies and cookies that serve technical error analysis and the ability to perform performance measurements (such as load times, server load allocations). Insofar as these data represent pseudonymous identifiers, we process them for the above-mentioned reasons based on legitimate interest, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f) GDPR. If you want to deactivate these cookies, you can only do so via special settings of your browser. If you disable or opt-out of these cookies, your use of the Websites and Services may be restricted or unavailable. Session cookies expire at the end of your browser session. Persistent cookies are stored between the browser sessions on your device until they are cleared by their browser settings.
b) Other tracking technologies allow us to anonymously analyze visitor numbers, site visitor sources, usage time, approximate geographic origins, and user interactions with our website to determine how our websites are used and which of our sub pages are particularly popular. They also allow us to associate specific page visits with key sales and affiliate partners and track subsequent user interactions. The basis for the use of these technologies and cookies is our legitimate interest, Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f). DSGVO, because we need statistical analysis on the use of our website for the purpose of optimization:
