This can help us enable certain functionalities on our website, or to help us better understand how visitors like you use our website.

 Use of permanent cookies

Permanent cookies enable us to recognise you when you visit our website again. This allows the website to be specifically adapted to your preferences. If you have consented to the use of cookies, we can remember your choice in the form of a cookie. Therefore, you will not have to repeatedly enter your preferences, which will save you time, making our website more user-friendly. There is an option to remove permanent cookies in your browser settings.

Tracking cookies from us (1st party cookies)

With your permission we will place a cookie on your appliance that can be ‘called up’ when you visit a website from our network. This informs us that in addition to our website, you have also visited other website(s) from our network, and this helps us to draw conclusions about your personal interests. The profile created this way is linked to your IP address, but not to your name, address, e-mail address, etc. This link serves only to attune advertisements to your profile to make them as relevant as possible for you.

Tracking cookies from our advertisers (3rd party cookies)

If you give your permission, our advertisers may place tracking cookies on your device. They use these cookies to keep track of which pages you visit outside their networks, so that they can build a profile of your online surfing behaviour and personal interests. This profile is partly based on similar information obtained from your visits to other websites in their network. This profile is only linked to your IP address, and not to your name, address, e-mail address, etc.  This link serves only to attune advertisements to your profile to make them as relevant as possible for you.

Analytical cookies

We use analytical cookies after obtaining your consent. They allow us to measure for example website visits (e.g. number of visitors, most visited web pages, etc.).

We use Google Analytics for this purpose, if you have consented to the same. Cookies from Google are placed as part of the “Analytics” service. We use this service to retain information and receive reports about how visitors use our website. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so or insofar as third parties process this information on behalf of Google. We have no control over this process. Google Analytics collects first-party cookies, device and browser data, IP address and website activity in order to measure statistics and report on website user interactions on the website. Google Analytics offers a method to partially screen your IP address. This function is activated, which means that Google Analytics only uses part of the collected IP address instead of the full address. The information that Google collects is transferred to and stored by Google on servers that may be located in the United States. In this context, we refer to Google’s privacy and cookie policy: 

Social media plug-ins

“Our website contains buttons to promote (‘like’) or share (‘tweet’) webpages on social networks like Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter. These buttons work via bits of code that originate from Facebook or Twitter, respectively. By means of this code, cookies are placed if you visit our website and have consented to the enabling of these plug-ins. If you have given your consent, we have no influence on that. You can revoke your consent at any time (see below under “Enabling and disabling cookies and deleting them”). Read the privacy policy of Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter (which may change regularly) to find out what they do with your (personal) data that they process via these cookies.”

“The information collected via the social media plug-ins is anonymised to the extent possible. The information is transferred to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and LinkedIn and stored by them on servers in the United States. In order for LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and Google+ to guarantee the necessary protection in the processing of personal data (including outside the EEA), we have concluded a processing agreement with these parties, which includes the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses on the transfer of personal data outside the EEA. On the basis of this agreement, we shall take the necessary steps to encourage these parties to ensure an adequate level of protection for the processing of personal data if any.


We have taken the necessary technical, organisational and contractual measures to ensure that our systems, networks, etc. are secure. This way you can be confident that we handle your personal data in a safe and confidential manner.

 What are your rights with regard to your personal data?

You have a number of rights under data protection legislation if your personal data are processed. If you wish to find out more about this, we recommend that you read our privacy policy.

The following rights are important in connection with personal data that is processed via cookies. That is why we emphasise them in this cookie policy:

–      The right to access, correct, or delete your data

Under certain circumstances, you are entitled to request to access, correct or delete your data. We might ask you to adequately identify yourself in the interest of

preventing misuse. As regards inspection of personal data linked to a cookie, please send a copy of the cookie in question. You can find these in your browser settings.

–      Enabling, disabling and deleting cookies

You can make the desired changes using the cookie configurator at the bottom of this page.
