4. Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your terminal equipment (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal equipment; they do not contain viruses, trojans or other harmful software.

Information is stored in the cookie that results in connection with the specifically used terminal equipment in each case. This does not mean, however, that we are thus able to directly obtain knowledge of your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use “session cookies” to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted once you leave our website.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your terminal equipment for a specified period of time; these enable us to optimize the user-friendliness of our website. If you visit our site again to use our services, it will automatically recognize the fact that you visited us before and remember what entries and settings you made so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you (see section 5). These cookies enable us to automatically recognize your return to our website if you have visited before. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies is required for the aforementioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Article 6 (1), sentence 1 (f) GDPR.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You can, however, configure your browser in such a way that no cookies are stored on your computer or that a message always appears before a new cookie is created. Please be aware that, if you completely deactivate cookies, you may not be able to use all the functions of our website as a result.

Specifically, first-party cookies are used: cookie 1 = session cookie (from CMS), cookie 2 by Cookie Bar = persistent cookie – 180 days TTL (time to live) and third-party cookie as persistent cookie – 183 days (TTL, Google Maps).

You can see in the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser if a single page of our website is being transmitted in encrypted form.
