Cookie Policy

What are Cookies?

Cookies are tiny text files saved on your personal Computer, Tablet and on Mobile device.

A cookie is a file that allows a website to recognize a user via a browser after the first visit. We use cookies to keep track of your shopping cart, to display recently viewed items, to provide you with relevant product recommendations and also to remember you when you return to our website.

Our Cookie policy:

Our cookies never contain personal data. Cookies are not a security risk for your data. Cookies are not constantly running applications; they will not copy or obtain files on your computer, besides they are not able to transmit viruses.

Many sites use cookies to simplify their offers for the users and to increase their usability: for example the cart of our online store or displaying site-directed advertising. If cookies are disabled, only a limited use of specific web offers will work.

Why we use Cookies: 

There are many reasons why we use cookies. They range from an automated log-in to the facilitation of online purchases, for the optimization of websites, eg. by matching an offer to the special needs of a user. Cookies allow website operators to constantly update their offers to their customer’s needs and interests.

Cookies increase the usability and the relevance of many online services; many features would not operate without the use of cookies. E.g. the notepad functions of our online store or the default user preferences (language settings, regional settings).

We have different cookies set by our website.

1st Party Cookie

First-party cookie is a cookie also known as persistent cookie. Persistent (permanent) cookies are stored on your computer and cease to be valid only if their assigned expiration date has passed. Depending on that date, a persistent cookie could be valid for a few seconds, over days to several of years.

3rd Party Cookie

A third-party cookie is a tracking cookie set by a third party. The advantage of 3rd party cookies, however, is that you must not install a code on the landing page. Therefore, 3rd party cookie tracking is technically easier than 1st party cookie. Google AdWords uses 3rd party cookies to determine the conversion rate. Google Analytics for example uses 1st party cookies.
