Our website uses cookies to store user-specific data.
Cookies are small text files that websites send to browsers and that are stored on the devices of website visitors. If browsers revisit websites, the information stored in their cookies is transferred to the website (e.g. the language chosen for the website or other settings). You can find information about all the cookies stored on your device in the (privacy-)settings of your browser.

Below we explain why this website uses cookies. In case of questions, please get in touch with us.

What types of cookies are there?
The question of which cookies we use in particular depends on the services we use and is clarified in the following sections of the Privacy Policy. At this point we would like to briefly explain the different types of cookies.

There are 4 types of cookies:

  • Absolutely necessary / Business-relevant cookies
    These cookies are necessary to ensure the basic functionality of the website. For example, these cookies are needed when a user fills out a form and then continues surfing on other pages before sending it off. These cookies do not delete the form fields, even if the user closes his browser window.
  • Functional cookies
    These cookies collect information about the user behavior and whether the user gets any error messages. In addition, these cookies are used to measure the loading time and the behaviour of the website with different browsers.
  • Target-oriented cookies
    These cookies ensure better user friendliness. For example, entered locations, font sizes or form data are stored.
  • Google Analytics Privacy Policy
    On this website we use Google Analytics from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) to statistically evaluate visitor data. Google Analytics uses target-oriented cookies for this purpose.

Necessary/system-relevant cookies

This cookie stores whether or not you agree to the use of other cookies. It is set when you interact with our cookie information. Your decision will be stored for one year, unless you remove the cookie from your computer earlier.

This is a standard cookie which is set by TYPO3 (the backend of the website). It is set when a form page is called and is required for the technical function of the page (spam prevention). It contains a letter and number combination and is deleted when you close your web browser.

Third party cookies / social media platforms
These cookies are also called targeting cookies. They are used to deliver individually tailored advertising to the user. This can be very practical, but also very annoying.
Usually, when you first visit a website, you are asked which of these cookie types you want to allow. And of course this decision is also stored in a cookie.
