In addition to the aforementioned data, we use cookies through our website. Cookies are small text programs that are stored on your computer (in your browser) during your visit on our website. If you afterwards return to our website, the browser used by you sends to our website the information stored in the cookie, which, for instance, makes the navigation easier for you, since the cookie applies presets. Cookies are not viruses and also cannot install any malware on the computer. They are just short texts exchanged between the web server and the browser. Our website uses the following types of cookies:

Transient cookies (session cookies)

These cookies are only stored over the period in which you use your browsers. They store a so-called session ID that allows to associate various calls of your browser with the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognized if you return to the website. Once you close the browser, these cookies are automatically deleted.

Persistent cookies (time-limited cookies)

These cookies differ from the transient cookies only to the extent that they are not automatically deleted when the browser is closed but only after a preset period. However, you may delete these cookies at any time via the settings of your browser.

Basically, you may configure the settings of your browser to the effect that cookies are rejected or are accepted and stored only to a limited extent by your browser. If you use this option, however, this may lead to restrictions with regard to the usability of our website.

We, as the website operator, have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically flawless and optimized provision of our services. Where other cookies (e.g. cookies for the analysis of your browsing habits) are stored, they are dealt with separately in this Privacy Statement.

Furthermore, flash and HTML5 technologies may be used for some contents. These technologies use files that are stored on your terminal. These files store the necessary data independently of your browser and do not have an automatic expiration date. If you do not wish the application of the flash cookies, you need to install a corresponding add-on, e.g. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox ( or the Adobe-Flash-Killer-Cookie for Google Chrome.
