What is a cookie?
A cookie is small text file or information your browser receives and saves while loading a website. This text file usually contains settings or even information, which the browser transmits to this website when it is revisited. A distinction is made between so-called first party cookies, which only send information to the original site you visited and third party cookies, which also send information to third parties (for example, partners or pages of mtms with another domain).
These may be so-called session cookies, which allow us to store your shopping cart correctly over several page visits. Other cookies can significantly improve the user experience by giving you a customized page when you visit the page again, or not showing information only ment to be displayed the first time you visit the page, or storing settings you have selected, such as the selected language.
Cookies are stored for different periods of time, depending on the use case and utilization. Some are deleted when the browser is closed, some of them remain stored in your browser for a certain time.
Cookies requiring approval vs. cookies that are approval free
A distinction is made between two types of cookies. This distinction is based on the necessity of use.
Necessary cookies (approval free)
Since the use of such cookies is necessary, strictly speaking, no explicit consent would therefore be necessary. Nevertheless, we also point out the use of these cookies. Of course, you are free to deactivate the use or storage of cookies in your browser, but you will most likely not be able to use our services correctly.
Cookies requiring approval
Without those cookies, the website or the service from a purely legal point of view would work in principle, but their use is still necessary from our point of view, otherwise only a limited function of the website is guaranteed or your user experience would be very limited. Functions such as Settings for language selection would no longer be saved or pre-filled forms would not be possible. We also have the possibility to show you individual offers tailored to your needs.
