Some elements of our website require that the calling browser can be identified even after another website has been visited.

This website uses cookies to the following extent:

  • Transient cookies (session cookies) are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This will allow your computer to be recognized when you return to the site.

Absolutely necessary cookies are those that store your information regarding the use of cookies. These are only stored as long as your browser is open.

The technical cookies serve to make browsing through our website more pleasant for you as user. For example, we save your chosen filter settings, so you do not need to set this filter again when leafing back and forth.

Tracking cookies help us to get to know your usage behaviour so that we can understand what interests you and what does not. This allows us to respond better to the needs of our users. Furthermore, we can for example also see which technical devices you use to visit our website, so that we can also draw conclusions about how we can make our offer more attractive to you.
