Retargeting/remarketing 
This website utilises retargeting technologies that are operated by other providers (e.g. remarketing via the Google Display Network). Retargeting enables our partners to target advertising on their websites to visitors who have already expressed an interest in our brand and our products. Research has shown that the presentation of personalised, interest-focused advertising is more interesting for users than advertising that has no personal connection whatsoever. Retargeting displays advertising based on a cookie-driven analysis of previous user behaviour. This naturally does not involve the storage of any personal data and all utilisation of retargeting technology equally naturally complies with all applicable provisions of data protection law currently in force. If you do not wish to give your consent to the display of advertising using this technology, you can configure your browser to deactivate cookies and/or delete existing cookies.

Data is not used in any other way, nor shared with third parties.
