How cookies work

Cookies are small text files that a User's browser stores in a directory designed for this purpose on his/her computer. Cookies mean, for example, that text entries you have made in form fields on the Website are saved so that you do not have to enter the same information again the next time you visit the Website or when you want to use a different function on the Website.

Cookie settings

You can decide for yourself whether our Website's web server is allowed to save Cookies on your computer or not. You can opt to change your browser settings so that they do not allow Cookies to be accepted or saved at any time. Alternatively, you can opt to be shown a warning message every time before you accept Cookies or you can set your browser up in such a way that it only accepts Cookies from certain websites. You can also delete Cookies that have already been saved at any time.

We would like to emphasise that if you decline Cookies on the Website, some functions on the Website may be limited or unavailable. As a result, to make it easier to use the Website, we recommend that your browser settings accept Cookies on the Website.

Web analysis services

We use web analysis services to analyse the use of the Website in general and to gain insights into how to improve our offering. The web analysis services use Cookies to collect data. The information generated in this process (e.g. IP address and browser type) can be transmitted, after being rendered anonymous, to a server of the web analysis service in Germany or abroad to be saved and processed there. You can use corresponding browser settings, or set up an opt-out cookie of the web analysis service in question to prevent the service from placing Cookies on your computer and collecting data.
