This technology makes it possible for Internet users, who have already been interested in our shop and our products, to advertise on the websites of our partners with advertising. We are convinced that the inclusion of personalized, interest-based advertising is generally more interesting for the Internet user than advertising that does not have such a personal connection. The insertion of these advertisements on the pages of our partners is based on a cookie technology and an analysis of the previous usage behavior. This form of advertising is completely pseudonym.

Switching of interest-related advertising with the help of "Re-targeting"

This site uses so-called "retargeting tags". The "Retargeting tag" is a JavaScript element that is placed in the source code of the website. If a user visits a page on this site that contains a "Retargeting tag," an online advertising provider (such as Google) places a cookie on that user's computer and assigns it to the appropriate retargeting target group list. This cookie also serves to bring retargeting campaigns ("interest-related advertising") to other websites. Studies have shown that the inclusion of interest-related advertising is more interesting to the Internet user than advertising which has no direct relation to interests or previously visited websites.
