Cookies are also placed by third parties commissioned by us. This document is intended to inform you about the use of cookies on our website.

4. Cookies

4.1 Technical or functional cookies

Some cookies ensure that parts of our website function properly and that your user preferences are known to us. We make it easier for you to visit our website through placement of functional cookies. This way you do not have to enter the same information repeatedly when you visit our website. Placement of such cookies does not require your consent.

4.2 Analytical cookies

We use analytical cookies to optimize your website experience. This gives us insights into your use of our website. Statistical data are collected anonymously and thus no permission is required to place analytical cookies.

4.3 Advertising cookies

We use advertising cookies on this website to gain insight into campaign results and to adapt our advertising to your interests (make it more targeted). A profile is created and the cookies are linked to a particular ID - so that we do not show you the same advertisement several times.

Since these cookies are marked as tracking cookies, we need your consent in order to be able to place them.

4.4 Social media buttons

Auf unserer Website nutzen wir keine Soziale-Medien-Buttons um Internetseiten zu bewerten oder in sozialen Netzwerken zu teilen.

Function

This cookie is linked to the Typo3 web content management system. It is generally used as a session identifier to enable saving of user preferences. In many cases, however, it is not really needed because the platform can place it by default - although website administrators can prevent this from happening. In most cases it is placed to be destroyed at the end of the browser session. It contains a random identifier and no specific user data.
