We use cookies in order to further improve our internet presentation for you, make it more user-friendly and to tailor it as well as possible to meet your needs. Cookies are small text data files, which a webserver sends to your internet browser when you visit a website. The cookies are stored locally on your terminal (personal computer, notebook, tablet, smartphone etc.).

Numerous websites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain so called cookie ID, which is a unique identifier of the cookie. Cookie ID consists of a string of characters through which websites and servers can trace back the actual web browser, on which the cookie is stored. This allows the visited web pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other web browsers that contain other cookies. A specific web browser can be recognized and identified by the unique cookie ID. The purpose of this information is to automatically recognize you and to facilitate your navigation, when you visit the website again with the same device.

You can also consent or reject cookies - also for web tracking - via the settings of your web browser. You can configure your web browser so that it blocks cookies generally, or you will be warned in advance when a new cookie is about to be stored. In this case, however, the functionality of the website may be impaired (for example when placing orders). Your browser also offers a function to delete cookies (for instance by choosing “Clear browsing data”. This is possible in all common web browsers.

First-party cookies: First-party cookies are permanent cookies that are stored on the computer and only lose their validity when the expiry date assigned to them has expired. The word "party" refers to the domain from which the cookie originated. In contrast to third-party cookies, first-party cookies usually come from the website operator itself. They are therefore not accessible to browsers across domains. For example, website A assigns a cookie A, which is not recognized by website B, but can only be recognized by website A. This means that data cannot be passed on to third parties.

Third-party cookies: With a third-party cookie, the cookie is set and recorded by a third party. These cookies are mostly used by advertisers who use their cookies on other websites to collect information about website visitors using the cookies. These are data records that are stored in the user's web browser when he visits a page with the advertisement. If he visits a page with advertising from the same provider again, he will be recognized.
