Cookies that are required to allow the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions you wish to use (e.g. the shopping cart) are stored pursuant to Art. 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies to ensure an optimized provision of his services free of technical errors. If other cookies (e.g. cookies used to analyze your surfing behavior) are stored, they will be treated separately in this privacy policy.

Even if you are not a member of a social network, there is the possibility that the social networks receive your IP address as well as information about the browser and the operating systen you use and that they store this information.
