The information stored and returned in the cookie enables the respective website to recognize that the user has already accessed and visited it with the web browser of his or her terminal device. We use this information in order to provide the user with the best possible display of the website according to his preferences.
However, only the cookie itself is identified on the end device. Any further storage of personal data is only carried out if the user gives us his explicit consent or if such storage is absolutely necessary in order to be able to use the service offered and accessed.
The user can customize his cookie settings at any time, for example by activating or deactivating individual cookie categories. A description of how the user can deactivate or delete cookies in general (including the absolutely necessary cookies) in his browser is provided under the point “Deactivating or deleting all cookies”.
Functional cookies enable this website to store information such as the user name or language selection and to offer the user improved and personalized functions based on this information. These cookies collect and store only anonymous information.

Performance cookies collect information on how our websites are used in order to improve their attractiveness, content and functionality. These cookies help us to determine, for example, whether and which sub-pages of our website are visited and what content users are particularly interested in. We record the number of times a page is accessed, the number of sub-pages viewed, the time spent on our website, the sequence of pages visited, which search terms led our users to us, the country, region and, if applicable, the city from which the access takes place, as well as the proportion of mobile devices that access our websites. The IP address of a computer transmitted for technical reasons is automatically anonymized and does not allow us to identify the individual user.
