What are cookies?

This Website uses so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the memory of your terminal via your browser. They store certain information (e.g. your preferred language or site settings) which your browser may (depending on the lifespan of the cookie) retransmit to us upon your next visit to our Website.

Upon your first access to our Website, a banner will appear, asking you to give us your consent to the setting of optional cookies. If your consent is given, we will place a cookie on your computer and the banner will not appear again as long as the cookie is active.

Of course you may use our Website without any cookies being set. In your browser, you can at any time configure or completely deactivate the use of cookies. This may, however, lead to a restriction of the functions or have adverse effects on the user-friendliness of our Website.

The IP address is anonymised immediately after processing and before it is stored (anonymisation of the last 6 digits of the IP address). You have the option of preventing the installation of cookies by changing the setting of your browser software.

You can object to your consent to web analysis at any time by managing your consent in the table above, setting an opt-out cookie. This only prevents web analysis as long as you do not delete the opt-out cookie.
