Use of Cookies

General Information About Cookies 

 A cookie is a text file containing an identification number which, when the website is used, is transmitted to the user's computer together with the other data actually requested and stored there. The file is kept there for later access and serves to authenticate the user. Since cookies are only simple files and not executable programs, they do not pose any danger to the computer. 

 Depending on the settings selected by the user in their internet browser, the latter automatically accepts cookies. However this setting can be changed and the storage of cookies deactivated or set in such a way that the user is informed as soon as a cookie is set. If the use of cookies is deactivated, some functions of the website may not be available or may only be available to a limited extent. You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.  

Cookies that are already active can be deleted at any time via the settings of your internet browser or other software programs. We may work together with advertising partners who help us to make our online offer more interesting for you. In this case, cookies from partner companies may also be stored on your hard drive when you visit our website (cookies from third parties).  

 

Session Cookies 

Session cookies are used for the duration of a session and are automatically deleted when the executing browser is closed. They ensure, for example, that video and audio files can be played, that your user input is temporarily stored during the time of entry and thus the user-friendliness is improved.  

 

Persistent Cookies 

Persistent cookies remain on your end device after closing the browser. These cookies can, for example, save your user preferences, such as language settings, and analyse user behaviour on our website. Storage duration of persistent cookies corresponds to the respective duration of the individual cookie. Afterwards they are automatically deleted.

Users who do not agree with the collection of their data can opt-out here. 

Additionally you can perform a cross-customer opt-in and a cross-customer opt-out, via the “Your Ad Choices” management by our partner https://www.youronlinechoices.com/. To opt-out or opt-in, click https://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.
