We collect information and data that is automatically transmitted or generated by your browser each time you visit our website.

Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your computer or mobile device and which allow re-identification of your computer or mobile device, potentially across numerous websites.

Other cookies remain stored on your device and allow us, or our business partners to recognize your browser during subsequent visits (persistent cookies).
You may prevent cookies by configuring your browser software accordingly. However, please note that certain areas of the websites or certain services may then not work as intended (such as your user account settings, the order process or saving your preferred means of transport).
