Cookiesare text information which a visited website stores on the user’s computer via the user’s browser. The information is either stored temporarily in the main memory (so-called session cookies) or permanently on the hard disk (so-called permanent cookies). Cookies send the cookie information back to the server when the same website is visited again and thus enable the identification of the user. In this way, for example, user statistics can be collected or the web offer can be adapted to the respective user. However, this data is not used to personally identify the visitor of this website and is not combined with personal data.

We use both session cookies and permanent cookies on our website and thus collect, process and use your usage data. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 f. DSGVO. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and safer and to offer our users optimal user guidance and varied content. The data you enter on our website is stored exclusively in a cookie on your computer. With each individual page request, data is transmitted to the servers of our website and, if necessary, stored in cookies. If advertisements are placed on one of our pages, the advertising partners behind the advertisement also use cookies to optimise the placement of advertisements.

Our website can also be used without cookies. Users must deactivate or restrict the storage of cookies in their browser. The browser can also be set so that users receive a notification when a cookie is sent. Cookies can also be deleted from the hard drive of a PC at any time. This can be done manually by deleting the “Cookies” folder, or in many browsers by using the corresponding delete function.

The use of the website or parts of our website may be restricted, less user-friendly or not possible at all if the storage of cookies is deactivated, as certain functions of our website are only available if the storage of cookies has been agreed to.
