Cookies are little text files that are sent when visiting an internet page and are stored in a user’s browser.

4.2 Which Files are Saved in the Cookies?
Cookies generally do not contain personal data, but instead only an online ID.

4.3 How can you Avoid the Usage of Cookies or Delete Cookies?
You can deactivate the storage of cookies through your browser settings and you may delete cookies that have already been saved in your browser at any time:
Please take note that this online offer might not be functional without cookies or the functionality might be reduced.
Please be further advised that refusing to allow the creation of usage profiles partially works through „opt out cookies”. In case you delete all cookies, an objection might, under certain circumstances, no longer be considered or be valid and would have to be restated.

Some cookies are strictly necessary so we can host our online offer safely. This category includes, e.g.,
  • Cookies which serve the purpose of identifying or authenticating our users;
  • Cookies that temporarily store certain user entries (e.g., shopping basket content or content of an online form);
  • Cookies that remember certain user preferences (e.g., search query and language settings);
  • Cookies that store data to ensure the uninterrupted playback of video and audio content;

4.4.2 Analytics Cookies

We use analytics cookies to record and statistically evaluate our users’ usage behaviour (e.g., clicked ad banners, visited subpages, search queries asked).

5. Web Analysis
We need statistical information about the usage of our Online Offers to design them to be user-friendlier and to perform reach measurements and market research. For this purpose, we use the web analysis tools described in this section.
The usage profiles created by these tools using analysis cookies [Sprungstelle einfügen] or by evaluating log files [Sprungstelle einfügen]are not combined with personal data.
The providers of the tools (vendors) process data only as processors subject to our directives and not for their own purposes.
The tools either do not use user IP addresses at all or shorten them immediately after obtaining them.
You will find information on each tool's vendor and how you are able to object to the collection and processing of data that is done with the tool.
Be advised that with regard to tools that use opt out cookies, the opt out function is related to a device or browser and is thus valid for the terminal device or browser used at this time. In case you use several terminal devices or browsers you must opt out on every device and in every browser used.
Additionally, you can generally avoid the creation of usage profiles by generally deactivating cookie usage. [Sprungstelle einfügen

The different providers of plugins are in the following summarized as “Plugin Providers”.

To increase the protection of your data when visiting our online offer, plugins are embedded using the so-called “Shariff Solution”. This means that when a page of this online offer is accessed, a connection to the servers of the respective plugin provider is not yet established.

Your internet browser establishes a direct connection to the respective plugin provider’s servers only when you activate the plugins. This way, the plugin provider receives information that your internet browser has accessed the respective site of our online offer, even when you do not maintain a user account with the provider or are not logged in. Log files [Sprungstelle einfügen](including the IP address) are transmitted directly from your internet browser to a server of the respective plugin provider and may be stored there. This server may be located outside the EU or EEA (e.g. in the U.S.).
The plugins are stand-alone extensions of the plugin providers. We, thus, do not have influence on the scope of data gathered and stored by the plugin provider through the plugin.
If you do not wish for the plugin providers to receive, save, and use data gathered through this online offer, you should not use the respective plugins.
You can also block the plugins from being loaded with browser add ons (so-called script blockers).
