If you would like to view our website, we collect the following data, which are necessary for technical reasons in order for us to display our website and ensure stability and security (the legal basis is Article 6, Paragraph 1, f) of the GDPR):

(4) In addition to the above-named data, cookies are stored on your computer during your use of our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive in a manner associated with the browser you use and through which certain information is provided to the entity that sets the cookie (in this case, us). Cookies cannot execute programs or transfer viruses to your computer. They serve to make the Internet content user-friendlier and more effective overall.

4. Use of cookies

(1) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are explained below:

Transient cookies (in this regard, see (2))

Persistent cookies (in this regard, see (3))

(2) Transient cookies are deleted automatically when you close the browser. These include session cookies in particular. These save a so-called session ID with which the various queries of your browser can be associated during the same session. They allow your computer to be recognised if you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

(2) In some cases, we make use of external service providers for processing. We have selected and engaged them carefully; they are bound by our instructions and are audited regularly.

(3) Insofar as our service providers or partners are domiciled in a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we inform you of the consequences of this fact in the description of the offer.

6. External Links

To provide you with optimal information, links are located on our site that refer to sites of third parties. Insofar as this is not obvious, we notify you that they are external links. The website operator has no influence on the content and presentation of these sites of other providers and thus refers to their data protection statements. Therefore, the guarantees of this data protection statement obviously do not apply there.

This is especially the case if the processing is not necessary for the performance of a contract, which we describe in each case in the following description of the function. If you exercise the right to object, we ask that you describe the reasons why we should not process your personal data as we have. In the event of your legitimate objection, we review the situation and will either cease/adjust the data processing or identify our compelling grounds that are deserving of protection on the basis of which we will continue the processing.
