Cookie notice

Overview of the cookies we use on this website.

1. What are cookies or local storage and what information do they collect?

Our website uses cookies and, where applicable, local storage elements. In accordance with legal requirements, we require your consent for this, unless the techniques used are absolutely necessary for our offer. Where your consent is required, we obtain it when you first visit our website as part of our welcome dialogue and information about our cookies and similar techniques.

1.1 Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are collected by your browser and temporarily stored on your computer (more precisely, in your browser directory). They can neither access the data on your hard drive nor cause any damage there. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user during or after their visit within a website. This information is used, for example, to provide us, as the operator of the website, with statistical information about the use of the website, or to ensure the security of the website, for example by recognising requests from bots.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use all features of this website.

1.2 Local Storage

In addition to cookies, there are also so-called local storage elements (also called "local data" and "local memory"). In this case, data is stored locally in the cache of your browser, which continues to exist and can be read even after you close the browser window or exit the programme - as long as you do not delete the cache. Third parties cannot access the data stored in the local storage. They are not passed on to third parties and are not used for advertising purposes. Insofar as the use of local storage elements is not absolutely necessary to enable the functionality of our offer, we only use them with your consent (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO).

1.3 Session and persistent cookies

Our websites may place session and persistent cookies on your device. Session cookies are usually only valid for as long as you use your browser or browsing session. When you end your browser session, the cookie expires. Persistent cookies remain stored even after you close your browser or browser session. This allows, for example, faster and often more convenient access to a website.

2. Purpose and legal basis of cookies and local storage

Only absolutely necessary (often also: essential or technically necessary) cookies and, where applicable, local storage elements are currently used on our website. Without these, the operation, the guarantee of security and the use of the functionalities of the website are not possible. If you deactivate necessary cookies, the functionality of the website will therefore be impaired. The legal basis for the collection of information through the use of strictly necessary cookies and local storage elements is the legitimate interest of us or third parties (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO), such as the provision of a functioning website. Further information on the balancing test is available on request.

4. Deactivation, deletion or opt-out of cookies

Our website only uses cookies that are absolutely necessary for the technical operation of the website. For this reason, we do not currently offer the option of deactivating individual cookies or services.

Regardless of this, modern web browsers allow you at least some control over the use of cookies through the browser settings. You can refuse the use of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser to refuse cookies. You can also delete existing cookies via your browser.

Please note, however, that by disabling cookies you may not be able to use all the features of our websites. In particular, you may have limited access to some areas or be redirected to a different experience.
