What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are stored by the web browser on the user's terminal device to store certain information. The next time you visit our website using the same terminal device, the information stored in cookies is sent back to our website ("First Party Cookie") or another website to which the cookie belongs ("Third Party Cookie").
The information stored and returned in the cookie tells the website that the user has already accessed and visited it using the web browser of his terminal device. We use this information in order to optimally display the website to the user according to his preferences.
However, only the cookie itself is identified on the terminal device. Any further storage of personal data will only take place if the user gives us his express consent or if this storage is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and called up.
The user can adjust his cookie settings individually at any time, for example by activating or deactivating individual cookie categories.
How the user can deactivate or delete cookies in general (including the absolutely necessary cookies) in his browser is described under "Deactivation or deletion of all cookies".
