Cookies are small text files that are downloaded by and stored on your browser the first time you visit the website. When you call up the website with the same device or browser again, the cookie and the information stored therein is either sent back to the respective website that created it (first party cookie) or to another website to which it belongs (third party cookie). This makes it possible to detect that the website was called up using the respective browser, using this status to change the display of the contents. By doing so, cookies remember your preferences, share how you use a web page and, in part, adapt the individual offers displayed to you.
Absolutely necessary, so-called essential, cookies guarantee the functioning of the website, are used exclusively by the operator and are only stored on your computer during the current browser session. Examples of when essential cookies are used:
Essential cookies may be deactivated via the browser settings (see below). However, the operator points out to users that in this case, they may not be able to use all the functions of these web pages to the full extent.
In addition, we also use non-essential marketing and statistics cookies on the basis of the consent granted by you, if applicable (Art. 6 Para. 1 Item a GDPR, § 96 Para. 3 Telecommunications Act). These are not absolutely necessary in order to use the website, but still perform important tasks. Without these cookies, functions that enable the convenient use of the website are no longer available. Settings configured by you cannot be saved and must therefore be repeatedly entered on every new page. Furthermore, we no longer have the option of providing you with individually adapted offers.
You may revoke your consent at any time by using the slider (see above) or via the browser settings (see below).
Statistics cookies help us to understand how visitors interact with the website by collecting pseudonymised information on visitors’ use of the website.
Marketing cookies are used to display personalised contents on the website in accordance with your interests. The personalisation occurs since cookies (also across different websites) make it possible to understand user behaviour.
You can (de)activate non-essential cookies at any time by using the slider.
If you wish to limit or block cookies altogether, you must carry out the corresponding changes in the settings of your internet browser. Cookies that have already been saved may be deleted at any time. If cookies are deactivated, it may no longer be possible to use all the functions of the website to the full extent.
The procedures for managing and deleting cookies in your browser can be found in the respective function integrated in the browser. More detailed information on this is available at the following links:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”).
