4. Cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are small files automatically set up on your browser and stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or the like) when visiting our website. Cookies are not harmful to your device and do not contain viruses, trojans or other malware.

Information related to the specific device used is stored in the cookie. However, this does not mean that it provides us with direct knowledge about your identity.

One reason for using cookies is that it helps to make using our services a more pleasant experience for you. For example, we use “session cookies” to recognise whether you have already visited specific pages of our website. They are automatically erased after you leave our website.

To optimise the user-friendliness of our website, we also use temporary cookies, which are stored on your device for a specific period of time. If you revisit our website to use our services, the website will automatically recognise that you are a repeat visitor and remember any information and settings you have entered so that you will not need to re-enter them.

Another way we use cookies is to gather statistics on the use of our website and to evaluate this so that we can optimise our offer for you. These cookies allow us to automatically recognise you as a previous visitor to our website. They are erased automatically after a certain period of time.

The data processed by cookies is required for the above-mentioned purposes in order to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(1) (f) GDPR.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. It is possible for you to either configure your browser or decide directly on our website so as to not store cookies on your computer or to always be notified before a new cookie is added. However, blocking cookies entirely may prevent you from using all functions of our website.
