Re-Targeting

Information on the website visitor’s surfing behavior is collected on our pages in anonymized form for marketing purposes and is saved in cookies by means of so-called re-targeting technologies. This technique facilitates an analysis of the Internet users’ surfing behavior by means of an algorithm so they can subsequently be notified about selective product recommendations. We are convinced that the display of personalized, interest-based advertising is generally more interesting to the Internet user than advertising without personal reference. This form of advertising is carried out anonymously altogether. The data can by no means be used to personally identify the website visitor. The collected data are merely used to improve the promotional offers. There is no other use or transmission to third parties.
