In addition, we also use – if you permit – so-called persistent cookies, which are used beyond the session („session-spanning cookies“).

If you agree to the use of persistent cookies, third-party cookies may be stored in your browser to analyse your usage behaviour. We use these cookies to optimise our website and make it more interesting for our customers.

The use of technically non-essential cookies only occurs with your consent (within the meaning of Art. 6 § 1 lit. a) GDPR). You can revoke your consent at any time by changing the appropriate settings in your browser or by changing the cookie settings.

    • You read our data protection information and the conditions of participation for the competition in question, confirm this and send your details

    • Your data will simultaneously be transferred to our newsletter tool „Newsletter2Go“. From now on you will receive our newsletter. You can unsubscribe at any time (see Newsletter)

    • After contacting us, your prize will be sent to you (e.g. prize code by eMail). Should further data be necessary for the delivery of the prize, e.g. an address for the dispatch of prize goods (such as T-shirts or similar), we will collect this data directly from you through eMail communication.
