Processing of personal data by cookies
We use so-called cookies on our website.

Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your end device. This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below.
Cookies that are stored in your web browser:
- Transient Cookies: These cookies are automatically deleted when you close your web browser. These include in particular session cookies. They store a so-called session ID, which can be used to assign various requests from your web browser to the joint session. This makes it possible to recognise your terminal device when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close your web browser.
- Persistent cookies: These cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete these cookies at any time in the settings of your web browser.
The processing of personal data by the aforementioned cookies serves to make our website more user-friendly and effective for you.

In particular, some functions of our website require that your web browser can be identified even after a page change. The data which is processed by cookies and which is required for the provision of the functions of our website is not used to create user profiles.
