Cookies are small, simple text files that your computer, tablet or mobile phone receives when you visit our website. Cookies are used, for example, to save possible usernames, passwords and personal settings, so that you do not have to enter your details again during a subsequent visit.
In order to provide you with the best possible service, this website places “tracking cookies” on your computer. This allows us to recognize you and retrieve information about your previous visit. The profile that is created of you is not linked to your name, address, e-mail address and the like if we know it, but only to match the content shown to your profile so that it is as relevant as possible for you.
Most internet browsers offer you the option to block the placement of cookies or to let you know in advance when a cookie is being placed. Cookies can also be deleted, but only you can do this yourself as they are stored on your computer. Consult the manual of your browser for this.
A cookie from the American company Google is also placed via this website as part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to keep track of and get reports on how visitors use the website. The information that Google collects is made anonymous as much as possible. Your IP address is explicitly not given. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so, or insofar as third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. We have no influence on this.
