What is a cookie?
A cookie is a simple small file that is sent along with pages from this website and stored by the browser on your computer's hard drive. The information stored there can be sent back to our servers on a subsequent visit.

The use of permanent cookies
With the help of a permanent cookie, we can recognise you when you visit our website again. The website can therefore be specially adjusted to your preferences. Even if you have given permission for the placement of cookies, we can control this by means of a cookie. This means that you do not have to remind us of  your preferences every time, which saves your time and allows you to use our website easily. You can delete permanent cookies via the settings of your browser.

The use of session cookies
With the help of a session cookie we can see which parts of the website you have viewed during this visit. This allows us to adapt our service as much as possible to the surfing preferences of our visitors. The cookies are automatically deleted when you close your web browser.

Tracking cookies from our advertisers
With your permission, our advertisers set “tracking cookies” on your computer and other equipment. They use these cookies to have a look at pages you visit from their network, in order to build a profile of your online surfing behaviour. This profile is partly built on the basis of comparable information that they receive from your visit to other websites in their network. This profile is not linked to your name, address or e-mail address, but only serves to match advertisements to your profile so that they are as relevant to you as possible.

Google Analytics
A cookie from Google is placed via our website as a part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to keep track of and to get reports on how visitors use the website. Google may provide this information to third parties. Google is legally obliged to do this as long as third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this. We have not given any permission to use the obtained analytics information for other Google services.

The information that Google collects is kept secret as much as possible. Your IP address is emphatically not given. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google claims to adhere to the Safe Harbor principles and is affiliated with the Safe Harbor program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.
