Website analysis and tracking
When you visit our website, information in the form of cookies may be stored on your computer in order, for example, to recognize the preferences of visitors and design the website accordingly. This helps us, for example, to facilitate navigation and to achieve a high degree of user-friendliness.
Cookies are text files that are stored on the user's hard drive when visiting a website. They are safe for your computer and cannot be viewed by third parties. They allow information to be stored for a certain period of time and to identify the user's computer.
If you accept our cookies, they will remain on your computer for a period of 30 days, unless you delete them beforehand. During an online booking, cookies are temporarily stored for the course of the booking. These are automatically deleted after 30 minutes of inactivity or after closing the website.
You can object to the collection and storage of your data via this service at any time. If you want to avoid the activation of cookies, deactivate them in your browser. Please note, however, that the deactivation of cookies can restrict the use of the website and the services offered.
We would like to point out that the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" has been added to Google Analytics to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). In the event that IP anonymisation is activated on our websites, your IP address will be previously shortened by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Region.
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use the information mentioned in order to evaluate your use of our websites, to compile reports on website activities for us and to provide us with further services connected with website and internet use.
The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. A transfer of this data by Google to third parties only takes place due to legal regulations or within the scope of order data processing. Under no circumstances will Google match your data with other data collected by Google.
Microsoft Bing Ads
This website uses conversion tracking from Bing Ads (Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA). When you click on a Bing ad, a cookie is set on your computer. Both Bing and the website operator can recognize that someone has been redirected to the website via the Bing ads and has reached a pre-defined target page (conversion page). We would like to point out that your IP address is also recorded by this procedure. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking procedure described, the necessary setting of a cookie can be rejected via the browser setting.

We work together with advertising partners on the basis of retargeting technologies. We use these technologies to make our website more interesting for you. This technology enables Internet users who have already been interested in our shop and our products to be addressed with advertising on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that the insertion of interest-related advertising is generally more interesting for the Internet user than advertising that has no such reference. These advertising materials are displayed on the pages of our partners on the basis of cookie technology or other anonymous user identification and an analysis of the previous usage behaviour. This form of advertising is generally anonymous; no personal data will be stored without your consent and no user profiles will be merged with your personal data.
We use the Criteo service (Criteo SA, Rue Blanche, 75009 Paris/France) for the purpose of displaying targeted and interest-based advertising on websites within the Criteo advertising network. The cookies and user ID used for this do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person, nor is your IP address stored. You can prevent re-targeting using Criteo on the browsers you are using by following the instructions at https://www.criteo.com/privacy/ Please note that an opt-out cookie will be set for this."Diese Website nutzt das Conversion Tracking von Bing Ads (Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA).
Use-based online advertising
This website collects and processes anonymously information about your usage behaviour (e.g. which subpages you called up during your visit).

To optimize advertising based on your usage interests, we use the tools listed below and work with these vendors. This information is stored using a pseudonym so that personal identification is generally excluded. You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting "Do not accept cookies" in your browser settings. You can also set your browser so that it asks you whether you agree before setting cookies. Finally, you can also delete cookies once they have been set at any time. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our websites to their full extent. You may need to reactivate opt-out cookies that have already been set after the cookies have been deleted.

Social Media Plugins
Our website uses plug-ins from the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, CA 94205, USA.
By visiting a plug-in website on our website, a direct connection to the Facebook servers is automatically established. This transfers the content of the respective plug-in to your browser and integrates it into the website display. This gives Facebook the information about which website you have visited. If you are logged in to Facebook as a member of a plugged-in website during your visit, Facebook will associate this information with your Facebook account.
By actively using a plug-in function, such as clicking the "Like Me" button or making a comment, this information is also assigned to and stored on your Facebook user account when you are logged in.
If you do not agree to the transfer of your data to Facebook, it is necessary that you log out of Facebook before visiting our website with plug-ins in order to prevent the transfer of the data.
For more information about the purpose, collection and use of your information by Facebook, as well as your rights and ways to protect your privacy, please see Facebook's Privacy Statement: http://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
