Data protection information for the use of cookies

Cookies allow user interaction and other useful things when using websites. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain any viruses.

In order to make your visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use cookies on various pages. Cookies are small text files that your browser stores in your terminal device at the instruction of our website. When a user visits a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s device.

Description and scope of data processing

We use both temporary cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser, and so-called “persistent” (permanent) cookies, whose expiry time is set to a date in the future for your convenience. Cookies may be provided by us or by third parties.

The user data collected in this way is pseudonymised. Therefore a direct assignment of the data to the calling user is not possible. The data will not be stored together with other personal data of the users.

Important is the difference between technically necessary cookies, preference and statistics cookies as well as marketing cookies.

In this context, a reference is also made to this data protection declaration and how the storage of cookies in the browser settings can be prevented and consent revoked.
