Use of cookies

We use cookies for our websites. Cookies are small text files that are sent from our web server to your browser during your visit to our website and are stored on your computer for later retrieval.

This website uses the following cookies:

Transient (temporary) cookies - Session cookies for our web pages

Persistent cookies (time-limited use) - None

Third-party cookies (from third-party providers) - None

Cookies can generally be divided into two categories:

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes session cookies in particular. These will store what is called a session ID, which may be used to assign various requests from your browser to the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognised when you return to the website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period; this may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete these cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.

You can configure your browser settings according to your preferences; for example, to refuse third-party cookies, or all cookies. However, please note that doing so may limit your use of the features of this website.

Included services

We may include external services for the design of our websites and to provide additional features.

All the services described below can be deactivated by using special browser plug-ins which will prevent the necessary connection to the corresponding servers. Please note, however, that the use of such tools may lead to loss of normal efficiency, because many features may not work as expected.

The use of tools such as NoScript, uBlock Origin or uMatrix is recommended to interested readers. There are many tools that generally aim to make Internet traffic safer, but these should not be automatically considered privacy-friendly.

These tools, when properly configured, can also prevent possible web analytics or usage-based advertising network connections and other automatic background connections to third parties for all the websites you visit.

We have no influence on this procedure and do not receive any information from Google about the transmitted content.
