1. WHAT IS A COOKIE?

· Cookies are a standard feature of websites and allow us to store small data packets containing information about your visit to our website on your computer. Cookies are generally used to ensure or improve the functionality of websites by allowing them to recognize you and to remember information so that it is more convenient for you to use the website (e.g. by remembering your preferred settings). Cookies also help us understand which parts of the website are useful and where we need to improve. They help us track your usage behaviour in order to provide targeted advertising.

· First-party Cookies und Third-party Cookies

Cookies are downloaded when your browser accesses the website for the first time. The next time you visit the website from the same device, the cookie and the information stored in it will be returned to either the website that created it (first-party cookie) or to another website to which it belongs (third-party cookie).

These third parties set cookies each time you log in to their pages and visit our website. We have no influence on the cookie settings of these websites. Please visit the websites of these third parties for more information on how these providers use cookies.

First-party and third-party cookies allow the website to detect if you have already visited the website using the same browser. In many cases, custom content will be displayed to you.

If you oppose the use of all types of cookies, neither first-party cookies nor third-party cookies are used. There is no differentiation between these types of cookies.

· Permanent cookies and session cookies

Depending on the lifetime, a distinction can be made between "permanent cookies" and "session cookies".

A permanent cookie is a cookie that is stored on your computer until it expires or is deleted.

A session cookie, on the other hand, is deleted when you close the browser.
