5. Cookies

Cookies are small text files that are stored in a special storage area of your browser. However, cookies cannot be used to launch programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Cookies are set when you visit our website or a so-called tracking pixel/web beacon causes a cookie to be set. However, cookies can only be read by web servers of the same domain from which they were originally set.

You can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. To prevent the use of cookies by your Internet browser, you can deactivate the use of cookies via the settings of your Internet browser and delete cookies that have already been set. Use the help functions of your Internet browser to learn how to disable and delete cookies in your browser. Please note that disabling/deleting cookies may result in certain functions of our website no longer functioning as expected. Cookies that may be required for certain functions of our website are described below. In addition, the deactivation/deletion of cookies only affects the Internet browser used for this purpose. For other Internet browsers, the deactivation/deletion of cookies must therefore be repeated accordingly.

In addition, there are various ways to prevent the setting of certain cookies, either by selecting them in our tracking banner or individually to the respective service provider whose tools we use for certain purposes. We draw your attention to the latter possibility in direct connection with the respective tool.

Session cookies

As part of the provision of our websites, we use session cookies, which we store on your device when you visit our website, regardless of your choice in the context of the tracking banner, and which are always automatically deleted when you close your internet browser (i. e. quit the program). This allows us to provide you with various functions on our website using the information contained in the cookies.

We use session cookies that do not contain personal data for the following purposes:

• interference-free playback of video or audio content (for example, for the playback of Vimeo or YouTube videos);

• temporary storage of certain user input (e. g. the content of a shopping cart or an online form);

• Improve user-friendliness and statistical range measurement

In addition, we use session cookies that contain personal data for the following purposes:

• Session cookies, which serve to temporarily identify or authenticate a user (e. g. via Session ID to temporarily store the shopping cart);

• Session cookies are automatically deleted after the end of the Internet browser, but at the latest at the end of the duration of each cookie.

Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies are cookies that remain stored on your device even after you close the browser. We use the information contained in these cookies to provide you with convenience features on our website (e. g. to save certain user preferences or for search or language settings), but also to record your usage behaviour on our website and to use this information to improve our website (e. g. to detect errors) and to personalize advertising for you.

We process persistent cookies with personal reference to record your usage behavior only with your consent, which you can give us the first time you visit our website via the tracking banner displayed there. You can revoke your consent to the recording of your usage behavior at any time by deleting all cookies set in your Internet browser. In this case, however, you may need to make another selection with regard to the tracking banner.

Data from persistent cookies are stored until the end of the term of each cookie or until the cookies are deleted by you.

The collection of your usage data and the creation of a usage profile from this is carried out using a cookie ID. Your IP address is either not collected or is anonymized immediately after collection. It is therefore not possible to draw any direct conclusions about your person from the ID used.
