As soon as you visit our websites, cookies are downloaded by the internet browser to your end device, for example as a small text file. Third-party technologies, like scripts, pixels and tags, which we integrate into our websites for advertising purposes, also place cookies on your end device. In the following paragraphs, we'll explain to you what we use these technologies for, and how to adjust the settings to your needs.

  3. Purposes of Cookies.
    Cookies take care of many different tasks that contribute to a seamless and interactive online experience. For this to work, you need to always use the same end device and the same browser. Some specific cookies are essential for the running and maintenance of our websites, because they enable us to:
    • Provide you with the services of your preference at all times
    • Present you with specific and relevant information
    • Offer you a seamless and comfortable online experience

  4. Recognition and Response.
    Cookies show us how you use and interact with our websites, for instance, when you save your settings and user ID. This helps us to:
    • Provide you with a more personal experience by bringing you to the most important pages in a more efficient way
    • Remind us of some of your personal preferences
    • Guide you to useful content or pages

  5. Continuous Improvements.
    Cookies help us understand how visitors use our websites, and they enable us to make any necessary improvements. For example, cookies make it possible to analyse what type of content is popular, and create similar topics that could be equally relevant to our visitors. This, in turn, helps us to:
    • Improve the design of our websites and provide you with a better online experience
    • Try different approaches and present our visitors with content that is most relevant to them

  6. Advertising and Retargeting.
    Our websites may use cookies for retargeting purposes. This means that cookies store information from your browsing history to track your interests and activity on our websites. This helps us, or our advertising partners, to present you with:
    • Relevant advertising for our products on other websites, which is based on your visits to our website
    • A combination of relevant and specific information, so that the displayed advertising matches your interests

  7. Cookie Categories.

    Both data processing and associated cookies may be deployed on our websites. Depending on function and purpose, we have divided data processing into different categories. The intended purpose of each respective category is described on this page, and your consent to said categories can also be modified here. Each category lists all related data processing, if any, as well as the cookies that are normally used for said data processing.

  8. What do you need to know about cookies?

    Cookies support a better and faster online experience. A cookie is a small text file that stores internet settings. Almost every website uses cookies. When you visit a website for the first time, the cookies are downloaded by your internet browser. The next time you visit this website using the same end device, the website recognises you and displays content that is tailored to your personal needs and interests. The cookies mentioned below are synonymous with HTML5 Session Web Storage and HTML5 Local Web Storage.

  9. First-Party Cookies.

    First party cookies are cookies that we, or contracted service providers, place on the website and with which you interact if you continue to use our website.

  10. Third-Party Cookies.

    Our websites may also contain content from other providers (third-party providers), who possibly use their own cookies. Third-party providers may place cookies during your visit to our websites that request information like, for example, whether you loaded one of our websites. Please go to the website of the third-party provider to learn more about their use of cookies. In the detailed list under "Modifications and Details", you'll find information on the respective third-party providers and a reference to their data privacy statement. You can reject cookies from third-party providers at any time, by using the corresponding function on our websites. When you reject all third-party cookies, we'll only be able to provide you with the functionality on our websites that can be used without such cookies. In this case, the sections of our websites where third-party content is integrated, which requires the placing of third-party cookies, won't be available to you. A notification will inform you of this. If you still want to access the unavailable content on the website, you'll need to agree to the use of analytics and marketing cookies. Please use the corresponding function on our websites to give or revoke your consent. Please refer to the list of cookies for more information on integrated third-party data processing (e.g. tags, scripts, pixels).

  11. Rejecting Cookies.

    When you reject cookies that require your consent, we'll duly accept your decision and refrain from placing the respective cookies. If you revoke your consent for cookies, we'll stop placing cookies that require consent starting from your visit to the next page. We'll delete any first-party cookies, insofar as this is technically possible. You may, of course, refuse the use of analytics and marketing cookies. However, this will prevent us from understanding what you like or dislike about our websites, and from making any necessary improvements. Please note that we cannot delete third-party cookies. If you would like to delete all third-party cookies, please go to your browser settings. We would also like to make you aware that revoking your consent to cookies won't result in less advertising. Rather, it means that the displayed advertising isn't tailored to your personal needs.

  12. Cookie Management in your browser.

    You can manage cookie settings via the aforementioned features on our website, and also through changing your browser settings (enable, disable, and delete). Most browsers allow you to manage cookies by either accepting or rejecting all cookies. Go to the help section of your browser to learn more about how to manage and delete cookies. When you change your cookie settings, certain cookies will be blocked. In this case, you may not fully benefit from some features on our website. We may also be unable to provide you with certain content that you have previously seen or used.
