General information about cookies
Cookies are small text files that are used by many websites in Germany and around the world. Cookies are created when you visit our website and are deposited on your hard drive by our server. Our cookies do not contain any personal data. Cookies deposited by our servers can only be read by us and not by any other website. Most browsers are set to accept cookies automatically.

Naturally, you can also view our website without cookies. However, doing so may limit the functions that are available to you on our site.
Tools provided by third parties are used on this website for analysis purposes. These tools measure how effective advertisements are at addressing the user (aka “conversion tracking”).
When you click on an advertisement of one of the third-party providers listed below, a cookie for conversion tracking is deposited on your computer. If you visit a certain Internet site, the third-party provider and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to that site. This makes it possible for us to collect data that is important for our advertising activities. Where applicable, it tells us the total number of users that clicked on an advertisement, the length of their stay, their operating system, device model, location, payment transactions made and which mobile app functions have been used. However, it does not give us any personal information regarding the user's identity.
If you do not wish to participate in this form of conversion tracking, you can decline to have the necessary cookie placed on your system by setting your browser to generally deactivate the automatic placement of cookies. For example, you can use your Internet browser's “do not track” (DNT) option.
