I. What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser on your end device to collect certain information. The next time you visit our website with the same terminal device, the information collected in cookies will be sent back either to our website ("first-party cookie") or to another website to which the cookie belongs ("third-party cookie").

Through the collected and returned information, the respective website recognizes that you have already accessed and visited it with the browser of your end device. We use this information to optimally design and display the website according to your preferences. Only the cookie itself is identified on your end device.

Personal data is only recorded with your express consent or if this is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and called up by you accordingly.

II. Revocation of consent to the use of cookies

You can revoke your consent to the use of cookies, unless they are absolutely necessary (see IV. 1.), at any time with effect for the future.

III. Deletion of all cookies

You also have the option to generally deactivate cookies in your browser at any time. This prevents cookies from being stored on your terminal device and means that you will be asked each time whether you agree to cookies being set.

However, we would like to point out that the general deactivation of cookies can lead to functional restrictions in connection with the use of our website.

IV. Types of cookies in detail

Depending on their purpose and function, we divide cookies into the following categories:

1.) Necessary cookies
2.) Performance cookies
3.) Functional cookies
4.) Marketing cookies

In the following, we will inform you in detail about the different types of cookies and which cookies – if applicable, after your consent – are set and used in each case.

1. Necessary cookies

Essential cookies ensure functions without which you cannot use our website as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and are therefore first-party cookies. This means that all information saved in the cookies is returned to our website. Strictly necessary cookies are used, for example, to ensure that you, as a logged-in user, always remain logged in when accessing various sub-pages of our website, so that you do not have to re-enter your login data each time you call up a new page. The use of strictly necessary cookies on our website is possible and permissible without your consent. For this reason, cookies that are absolutely necessary cannot be individually deactivated or activated. However, you have the option to generally deactivate cookies in your browser at any time. This may, though, lead to functional restrictions in connection with the use of our website. The legal basis for the use of the absolutely necessary cookies is Art. 6 (1) b) GDPR (contract performance) and Art. 6 (1) f) GDPR (balancing of interests, based on our legitimate and overriding interest in the technically smooth provision of our website and the services offered via it).

2. Performance cookies

Performance cookies collect aggregated information about how our website is used in order to improve its attractiveness, content, and functionality. These cookies help us to determine whether, which, how often, and for how long subpages of our website are visited and in which content the users are particularly interested. In particular, we record the number of times a page is accessed, the number of subpages accessed, the time spent on our website, the order of the pages visited, which search terms led the user to us, the country, region and, if applicable, the city from which access is made, as well as the proportion of mobile devices accessing our websites. Furthermore, we record movements, "clicks", and scrolling with the computer mouse in order to understand which areas of our website are of particular interest to users. These cookies do not store information that allows identification of the user. The information collected is aggregated and does not allow us to directly infer who you are. They are used solely to compile statistics in order to tailor the content of our website more specifically to the needs of our users, to improve the user experience, and to optimize our offer.

The legal basis for the use of performance cookies is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR in connection with your consent.

Revocation of consent to the use of performance cookies

You can revoke your consent to the use of performance cookies at any time with effect for the future here.

3. Functional cookies

Functional cookies allow our website to store information you have already provided (such as registered name, language selection, or where you are located) and provide you with improved and more personalized features based on that information. These cookies collect and store only in such a way that their user behavior cannot be tracked on other websites.

The legal basis for the use of functional cookies is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR in connection with your consent.

Revocation of consent to the use of functional cookies

You can revoke your consent to the use of Functional Cookies at any time with effect for the future.

4. Marketing cookies

Marketing cookies originate from external advertising companies (third-party cookies) and are used to collect information about the websites visited by the user in order to create targeted advertisements for the user and to play ads based on the user's interests. They are also used to limit the frequency of appearance of an ad and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. This information may be shared with third parties, such as advertisers. 

The legal basis for the use of marketing cookies is Art. 6 (1) a) GDPR in connection with your consent.

Revocation of consent to the use of marketing cookies

You can revoke your consent to the use of marketing cookies at any time with effect for the future.
