We also use so-called cookies for data collection and storage. Cookies are data packages that your browser stores in your terminal device at our instigation. They do not cause any damage. They contain no executable code and therefore no viruses and do not allow us to spy on you. There are two types of cookies: temporary, so-called session cookies and persistent cookies.
Session cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to our website. The use of session cookies is necessary for us to be able to provide you with the website. The legal basis for the processing of your personal data using session cookies is Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. You can object to the use of session cookies but please note that without cookies some functions on our website cannot be provided.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time, which may vary depending upon the cookie. You can delete cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time. With the help of cookies, we are able to track your usage behaviour and thus improve our service to you. Cookies are also intended to enable you to browse our website more efficiently. Persistent cookies can be differentiated according to whether they are technically necessary or not. If the technical necessity is affirmed in individual cases, they are also based on Art. 6 (1) (f) of the GDPR. The use of technically unnecessary cookies takes place with your consent. The cookies, which are based on your consent, are only set if you have actively given them. The legal basis for data processing is Art. 6 (1) (a) of the GDPR. You may revoke your consent at any time. Revocation of consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of consent until revocation. You can set your Internet browser so that our cookies cannot be stored on your terminal device or that cookies already stored are deleted. If you do not accept cookies, this may lead to restrictions on how our website pages function.
