We use so-called session cookies to optimise our website. A session cookie is a small text file that is sent by the respective servers when visiting a website and is stored on your hard disk. As such, this file contains a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the shared session. This will allow your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. These cookies are deleted after you close your browser. They serve e.g. that you can use a shopping cart feature across multiple pages.
You can set your browser so that you are informed in advance about the setting of cookies and can decide on a case-by-case basis whether you exclude the acceptance of cookies for specific cases or in general, or that cookies are completely prevented. This may limit the functionality of the site.
4.4. EMAIL CONTACT
When you contact us (for example, by contact form or email), we will process your details for processing the request as well as for follow-up questions.

We process further personal data only if you consent to it (Article 6 Section (1) Letter a) GDPR) or we have a legitimate interest in the processing of your data (Article 6 Section (1) Letter f) GDPR). A legitimate interest is e.g. in answering to your email.
