Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device via the browser when you use our website. These text files contain information on the provision of user-friendly services and are read by web browsers. Cookies enable our website to recognise you, so that our web server can present you with a more individualised, better, faster and more customised website.
Therefore, please bear in mind that, when you block cookies, you may not be able to access some web content.
Basically, a distinction is made between the following types of cookies:
We also use so-called analysis cookies in connection with web analysis. Cookies can also be permanent or temporary. So-called permanent cookies store a file on your end device for a certain period of time until the cookie expiry date (or until you delete it prior to this date). This action serves to save language settings, for example, so that you do not have to adjust these repeatedly for our website. A so-called session cookie temporarily stores a session identifier while you are active on the website. This prevents you from having to log in again when you change pages, for example. Session cookies are deleted when you log out, or lose their validity as soon as your session has expired.
Cookies can also be used as third-party cookies. Third-party cookies originate from providers other than the website operator. They may be used to collect information for advertising, custom content and web statistics, for example.
As a general rule, we use internet technologies (e.g. cookies, Java script) on the basis of legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 Para.1 clause 1 lit. f) GDPR to make it easier for you to use our website and to optimise our site and your communication with our content:
Some third-party providers set cookies on your computer, especially so as to register visitor behaviour and personalise offers (including advertising). Depending on the platform, several cookies are set by third parties. You can read how the third-party provider handles cookies on the corresponding pages of the network. The notifications regarding the networks can be found in the chart below. We have no control over third-party cookies. We therefore recommend that you check the websites of third parties to determine which cookies are used and how they can be managed.
Under the COOKIE LIST below, you will find a summary of the cookies we use, which should inform you about the purpose and type of the respective cookie as well as its storage period.
If you block our cookies in your browser, you will not be able to use some areas of our website.
