Cookie Declaration uses cookies.

Some of the cookies on this website are technically necessary. In addition, we use cookies to optimize and develop our website for you. Cookies enable us to analyse and statistically evaluate website traffic and the behaviour of our visitors*. The providers of these services can combine the data obtained with other information that they have already collected about you. You can accept the use of these cookies or reject all but the absolutely necessary cookies.

Cookies can store different information that is read by the site that sets the cookie. They usually contain a characteristic string of characters (ID) that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when you return to the website or change pages. Their primary purpose is to make our online services more user-friendly and effective overall. The user data collected in cookies is pseudonymised by technical precautions, which generally makes it impossible to assign the data to the calling user.

We use different types of cookies:

  • Transient cookies, also known as temporary or “session cookies”, are cookies that are deleted after you leave our website and close the browser. Such cookies are used, for example, to store language settings or the contents of a shopping cart.
  • Persistent or permanent cookies, remain stored even after closing the browser. For example, the login status or entered search terms can be saved. We use such cookies, among other things, for range measurement or marketing purposes. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending on the cookie. However, you can delete these cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

In addition to so-called “first-party cookies”, which are set by us as the person responsible for data processing, “third-party cookies” are also used, which are offered by other providers. We inform you about the use of “third party cookies” and about the cooperation with external service providers who provide services such as web tracking or range measurement for us in our data protection information.
Access to your content settings offers you the opportunity to decide whether or not to accept cookies in the area of our website according to your preferences. You can change the decision made there at any time and subsequently grant or revoke your consent. To do so, you can call up the setting options here. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using “first-party cookies” is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
