Our website uses so-called cookies. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our webservice more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored by your browser. Cookies have different validity periods. Some are deleted after closing the browser and some are automatically deleted after a defined validity period. We use a session cookie that allows us to recognize your browser on the next visit of our site. This is used, for example, to store the favorites-list and to continue to use that list when you return to our site later. Furthermore, we use an opt-in cookie that stores your consent or refusal to analyze your browsing behavior. You will find extra information on analytics on this page.
You may be able to configure your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies, to allow cookies only in individual cases, to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and to activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If you disable cookies (in general or for our site) our site will offer only limited functionality.
