Cookie declaration

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

Cookies can store different information that is read by the entity that sets the cookie. As a rule, you receive a characteristic string (ID) that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again or when you change pages. They are primarily used to make our online services more user-friendly and effective overall. The user data collected in cookies is pseudonymized by technical precautions, which means that it is generally no longer possible 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 store, for example, language settings or the contents of a shopping cart.
  • Persistent or permanent cookies, remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status or entered search terms can be stored. We use such cookies for range measurement or marketing purposes, among other things. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may differ 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” that are set by us as the data controller, “third-party cookies” are also used that are offered by other providers. We inform you about the use of “third-party cookies” as well as about the cooperation with external service providers who provide services such as web tracking or range measurement for us in our privacy policy.

You have the option at any time to change the decision made there and to subsequently grant or revoke your consent. For this purpose, you can access the settings options here. The legal basis for the processing of personal data using “first-party cookies” is Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO.
