You can configure your browser settings so that you are notified about cookies, and can allow or accept them in individual cases only or decline them in general, and activate automatic deletion of cookies upon exiting the browser.

Cookies that are necessary for carrying out electronic communication or providing certain functions that you may need (e.g., the shopping cart feature) are stored pursuant to Article 6 (1) Letter f) of GDPR [General Data Protection Regulation]. The website administrator has a legitimate interest in storing cookies and thus ensuring technically fault-free and optimised provision of its services.
