On our website, we use so-called "cookies". Cookies are text files that are transferred from a server to the hard disk of your computer and remain there for the duration of the session or until deletion, depending on the type of cookie and the settings of your Internet browser, and through which certain individualization information are transmitted to us.
Cookies are used to store your system and usage information relating to the use of our website. They may also contain a unique identifier that allows us and other website providers to distinguish your system from other systems and to recognize it the next time you visit.
With these functions we intend to guarantee and increase the user friendliness and functionality of our website.
For this purpose we use the following for our website:
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser or log out. Examples of these are session cookies. They store a so-called session-ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your browser to the session. When you return to our website, your system can be recognized.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted or switched off after an individually specified period of time. They are used to recognize your system even after the session has ended.
HTML5 Storage Objects
HTML5 storage objects stored on your system use your system information independently of your browser to link your system settings with applications and have no automatic expiration date. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by using private mode in your browser.
In addition, you should occasionally delete the browser history manually.
You can change your cookie consent settings at any time by accessing ‘Cookie Settings’ in the website menu. Here you can see in more detail which cookies you do not want to accept.

Types of Cookies
These cookies are necessary for the specific functions of a website to be carried out. For example, such cookies are used when a user puts a product in the shopping cart and then continues to surf the site (or other sites) before proceeding to checkout. This means that his shopping cart is not deleted even after closing a browser window.
These cookies collect information about the behavior of users on the site and whether users receive error messages (if so, where and after which events). Loading times or the behavior of the website with different browser types are also measured with performance cookies.
These cookies are not absolutely necessary, but increase the "usability" of a website. For example, the location entered once is saved so that the respective user can immediately see this location when the page is called up again. Form data that have been entered, the size of the font or the like, can also be saved.
Advertising or targeting cookies are explicitly there to show the user advertisements that match their surfing behavior. You often notice the use of these cookies after you have been to online shops: Advertisements for this shop reappear on many websites visited afterwards, sometimes with a (deliberate) delay of a few hours to a few weeks. In online marketing, this is also called "re-targeting".
