Cookies are small files that make it possible to store specific information related to the device on the user’s access device (PC, smartphone or similar). On the one hand, they serve the user-friendliness of websites and thus the users (e.g. storage of login data). On the other hand, they can serve to record the statistical data of the website usage and to be able to analyze them in order to improve the offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option that limits or completely prevents the storage of cookies.

We are legally obliged to show a cookie warning. This cookie warning itself sets some cookies.

If you visit our login page, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.

Embedded content from other websites

Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites functions in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.

YouTube Videos

We have integrated YouTube videos on our website, which are stored on and can be played directly from our website. In order to increase the protection of your data when you visit our website, the videos are integrated into the page using a so-called 2-click solution, i.e. no data about you as a user is transmitted to YouTube if you do not play the videos. Only when you play the videos and thereby give your consent to the data transfer will YouTube cookies be stored on your computer and data will be transferred to YouTube and thus to Google. If you are logged into your YouTube account, you enable YouTube/Google to assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.

YouTube is used in the interest of an appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Further information on handling user data can be found in the YouTube or Google data protection declaration at
