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).
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.
When visiting our website, in addition to accepting cookies as described below, most browsers allow you to specify in your preferences whether or not to accept cookies. Further details, see point 2 below.
2. HOW CAN I MANAGE COOKIES?
If you decline all cookies, first party and third party cookies are disabled. In addition, first party cookies will be deleted. Third party cookies can not be deleted by us. Therefore, third-party cookies have to be deleted by you. This can be done from the browser settings.
· Disable or delete cookies from browser
Alternatively or in addition, you can change the cookie settings in your browser. In your browser, you have the option to make changes to the cookie settings. These browser settings for cookies are typically found in the submenu "Internet Options", "Tools" or "Preferences" of your Internet browser. You can also look up the help menu of your browser. The procedure for disabling cookies may vary depending on the browser.
Further information about the browser-related settings can be found under the following links:
As far as the browser settings for the deletion of existing cookies are concerned, the same principles apply as for the deactivation of new cookies via the browser settings. Please note your browser related instructions.
Online tools are available to remove any cookies left by websites you visit, such as www.allaboutcookies.org.
If you visit this website from different computers, you will need to repeat the changes on each device.
