Cookies, website analysis and marketing
To enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies. These are short data packages that are stored on your terminal device and exchanged with other providers. Some of the cookies we use are deleted immediately after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your end device and make it possible to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies).

Social media presence
We maintain fan pages within various social networks and platforms with the aim of communicating with the customers, interested parties and users active there and informing them about our services there.
User data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and resulting interests of the users. These usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the usage profiles irrespective of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of the users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing users and communicating with users pursuant to our legitimate interest. If users are asked by the respective providers for consent to data processing (i.e. declare their consent e.g. by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis for processing is your consent.
Further information on the processing of your personal data as well as your objection options can be found under the links of the respective provider listed below.
