About Cookies

A cookie is a small file that is stored in the browser of the end device when the website is called up. A cookie may be used to identify the specific device, or to ensure the complete and correct display of our website. Cookies also help to provide services included on the website, personalize content, and customize and analyze advertisements.

What Kinds of Cookie Are There?

Depending on their function and purpose, cookies can be divided into five categories: strictly required cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, and cookies for marketing purposes. Please note that not all the cookies listed here may apply if you access our website on a mobile end device.
Strictly Required Cookies (Essential Cookies)
These are cookies that are required for you to navigate our web pages and to use the basic functions of the website.
Performance Cookies
Performance cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of a website and therefore the user experience. Performance cookies collect information about the use of our web pages e.g. the Internet browser and operating system used; domain name of the website you just came from, number of visits, average time spent, and pages visited.
Functional Cookies
Functional cookies allow a website to store information already actioned (such as user name, login, language selection, or your current location) and to offer the user improved, more personal options.
Analysis Cookies
We can use these cookies to determine how our website is used and, for example, what preferences and search terms are called up.
Cookies for Marketing Purposes
Marketing cookies are used to provide targeted content that is relevant to the user and adapted to their interests. They are also used to measure and control the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether you visited a website or not, as well as what content was used. Such information may be shared with third-parties, such as advertisers. These cookies are often linked to third-party site functions.

Deleting Cookies and Do-not-track Setting

You can delete individual cookies or all cookies in your browser settings. Depending on your browser provider, you can also get more information and instructions on how to delete these cookies or stop them from being stored in the first place, at the following links:
Mozilla Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/delete-cookies-remove-info-websites-stored
Internet Explorer: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17442/windows-internet-explorer-delete-manage-cookies
Google Chrome: https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/61416?hl=de
Opera: http://www.opera.com/en/help
Safari: https://support.apple.com/en-gb/guide/safari/manage-cookies-and-website-data-sfri11471/mac
You can also manage the marketing cookies of many companies and functions individually. Use the relevant user tool to do this https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices.

Most browsers also offer a "Do-Not-Track option", which allows you to specify that you do not want to be "tracked" by websites. When this feature is enabled, the browser notifies advertising networks, websites, and applications that you do not want to be tracked for behavioral advertising, etc. Information and instructions on how to edit this option can be obtained at the following links, depending on your browser provider:
Mozilla Firefox: https://www.mozilla.org/en/firefox/dnt/
Internet Explorer: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/17288/windows-internet-explorer-11-use-do-not-track
Google Chrome: https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/2790761?co=GENIE.Platform%3DDesktop&hl=en
Opera: http://help.opera.com/Windows/12.10/en/notrack.html
Safari: https://support.apple.com/kb/PH21416?locale=en_GB

You can also prevent the loading of scripts by default. NoScript allows you to run JavaScript, Java and other plugins only on trusted domains of your choice. Information and instructions on how to edit this feature can be obtained from your browser provider (for Mozilla Firefox, for example: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-GB/firefox/addon/noscript/).

Notes and Opting Out: Tracking Tools

Below you will find out how you can prevent the use of the tracking technologies we use for the purpose of web analytics, and therefore opt out of data processing:

About the Tool, How it Works, And Data Protection Opting Out of Data Processing
Piwik (Matomo)
Piwik is an analysis tool from InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, New Zealand. With the help of Piwik, websites can be analyzed to see where the users come from and how they behave on the website. However, we use Piwik with the so-called "AnomizeIP" add-on, in which your IP address is initially shortened when you call up our website. This means that there is no reference to you.
For more information about the tool for the purpose of processing and for the provider's data protection, see the following link:
https://matomo.org/features/>

You can prevent the cookies used in this tool from being saved, by setting your browser to disable the execution of Java script in your browser or by installing a tool such as NoScript (see above).
You can prevent Google Analytics from capturing your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent the collection of your data on future visits to this site:

Deactivating Piwik
You can decide here whether a unique web analytics cookie can be stored in your browser in order to enable the website operator to collect and analyze various statistical data. If you would like to opt out, click the following link to place the Piwik deactivation cookie in your browser.

Twitter button
When you use Twitter and the re-tweet feature, the websites you visit are linked to your Twitter account. When a user calls up a web page of site that contains such a button, their browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Twitter. The content of the Twitter buttons is transmitted by Twitter directly to the user's browser.

You can change your data protection settings in your account settings under http://twitter.com/account/settings.
Twitter Syndication
With Twitter Syndication, every time our website is called up armed with this component, it causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the Twitter component. This informs Twitter about which specific page of our site is currently being visited. On our pages, Twitter messages from our Twitter account are also integrated through the Twitter Syndication service.
