Use of cookies (general, functionality, opt-out links, etc.)

We use cookies on our website to create a more attractive website and to enable certain user functions. The use of cookies serves our legitimate interest in providing users with the most pleasant website visit possible and is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f) GDPR. Cookies are standard internet technology for storing and accessing login and other user information for all website users. Cookies are small text files that are stored on the device.

If user profiles are stored, when visiting other website contents that use the same online marketing method, the data can be read, added to and completed on the server of the online marketing provider. 

We can determine the success of our advertisements on the basis of compiled data made available to us by the provider of the online marketing method (conversion measurement). This conversion measurement enables us to trace if a marketing activity led to the visitor of our website content deciding to purchase the advertised product. This analysis indicates the success of our online marketing activities.

Data categories: User data (e.g. web pages visited, interest in contents, access times), meta and communication data (e.g. device information, IP addresses), location data, contact details, content data (e.g. text entries, photographs, videos)
