What are cookies? 

A cookie is a small simple file that is sent along with pages of our website and stored by your browser on the hard drive of your computer or other device. The information stored in it may be returned to our servers or to the servers of the relevant third parties on a subsequent visit.  

Cookies transmit small amounts of data about your device to our web server. They enable websites to recognise your computer, smartphone or other device when you browse the internet. Tracking pixels, pixels, JavaScript and other tracking technologies also use cookies, invisible images or invisible codes that collect data about a user's visit to the website in a similar way to cookies. Depending on how long a cookie remains stored, we may refer to cookies as session cookies or persistent cookies: 

 i) Session cookies

A session cookie is deleted when you close the website in question. A session cookie allows a website to recognise you while you browse the website, but the cookie is deleted when you log out or close the website in your browser. For example, a cookie may be used to enable features such as a shopping cart. The cookie stores the products you add to your shopping cart as you browse the website for more products. 

 ii) Permanent cookies

A persistent cookie recognises you again and again for a set period of time. It remains stored on your device or in your browser for this period (which can be minutes, days, or months) after you have logged out or closed the browser. Persistent cookies are used, for example, to store certain settings you have made on a website (such as your preferred language).

What we are asking your consent for 

iShopify Statistics

We use the Shopify Statistics feature on our website. This allows us to measure the reach of our website and provides us with statistical analysis of visitor behavior on our website. The data is processed on servers of Shopify, which we have commissioned with the processing. The legal basis for the data processing in connection with the Shopify statistics function is our legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior on our website. You can object to this processing at any time in the cookie settings. 

 ii) Shopify Analytics

We use Shopify Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Shopify, on our website. Shopify Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your web site visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to Shopify and stored there. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Shopify and thus anonymized. 

Shopify will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Shopify may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Shopify's behalf. 

Shopify will not, according to its own information, associate your IP address with any other data held by Shopify. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.  

iii) Facebook Remarketing 

Within our website, so-called "Facebook pixels" of the social network Facebook, which is operated by Meta Platforms Inc., are used. With the help of the Facebook pixel, it is possible for Facebook to determine the visitors to our offer as a target group for the display of advertisements, so-called "Facebook ads". Accordingly, we use the Facebook pixel to display the Facebook ads placed by us only to those Facebook users who have also shown an interest in our website. This means that with the help of the Facebook pixel we want to ensure that our Facebook ads correspond to the potential interest of the users and do not have a harassing effect. With the help of the Facebook pixel, we can also track the effectiveness of the Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes by seeing whether users were redirected to our website after clicking on a Facebook ad. 

You can object to the collection by the Facebook pixel and use of your data for the display of Facebook ads. To do so, you can visit the page set up by Facebook and follow the instructions there on the settings for usage-based advertising:  or declare the objection via the US page or the EU page 

 iv) Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics service of Google Inc. to analyze our website visits. Google uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our website. This involves processing personal information in the form of online identifiers (including cookie identifiers), IP addresses, device identifiers and information about your interaction with our website. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. In doing so, pseudonymous user profiles can be created from the processed data. 

We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the IP address of the user is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other data from Google. 

We use the Google Universal Analytics variant. This enables us to assign interaction data from different devices and from different sessions to a unique user ID. This allows us to put individual user actions in context and analyze long-term relationships. 

The data on user actions is stored for a period of 14 months and then automatically deleted. Data whose storage period has expired is automatically deleted once a month. 

The setting of cookies and the further processing of personal information described here takes place with your consent. You can revoke your consent at any time under "Cookie settings". 

You can also prevent the storage of cookies by Google Analytics by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. You can also prevent the collection of information generated by the cookie by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: 

 v) Google Tag Manager 

We use Google Tag Manager, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc.. This service allows website tags to be managed via an interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are set, and no Personal Information is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags that may collect data. The Google Tag Manager does not access this data.  

If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains in place for all tracking tags, insofar as these are implemented with the Google Tag Manager. More information on the Google Tag Manager can be found at the following link: This service transmits data to the USA. 

 vi) Hotjar

We use Hotjar, a web analytics service provided by Hotjar Ltd, to better understand usage patterns, to better understand the needs of our users and to optimize our services and user experience. Hotjar enables us to better understand the user experience on our sites (i.e., how long users spend on which of our sites, which links they click, what they like and dislike, etc.) so that we can tailor our offerings based on user feedback.  

Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect information about user behavior and user devices (in particular, a device's IP address (which is collected and stored in anonymized form), screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic information (on a country-by-country basis only), preferred language for viewing our platform). Hotjar stores this data in a pseudonymized user profile. Neither Hotjar nor we will use this information to identify individual users, nor will the data be merged with other data about individual users. You can object to the creation of user profiles, the storage of data about your use of our platform by Hotjar, and the use of tracking cookies by Hotjar on other sites at any time by following this link
