Hereinafter we set out our intended purposes for the usage of cookies and similar technologies on our websites. Additionally we offer options for consent management to withdraw your consent at any time or to reject the usage.



Cookies, and web storage technologies such as local storage and session storage (“cookies”), make your interaction on our sites easier and smoother – with no extra effort on your part. For example, they are small text files that are downloaded by your internet browser to your device when you visit our websites. While you interact with our websites, technologies from third-party providers such as scripts, pixels and tags, which we integrate on our websites for advertising purposes, also set cookies on your device. In the following sections, you will find information and specific details in the corresponding lists regarding what we use these technologies for, and how you can change your settings to suit your requirements.





Cookies do a lot of different jobs which help to make your online experience much smoother and more interactive. This assumes, however, that you are using the same device and the same browser as before. Some specific cookies are essential for running and maintaining our websites and they enable us to:

  • Provide you with 24/7 access to the services you have requested
  • Give you consistent and accurate information
  • Ensure you enjoy a seamless and comfortable experience




Cookies enable us to improve our websites by looking at how our visitors use them. We analyse what content is popular and draw conclusions about what else they might be interested in or find useful. This helps us to:

  • Understand how visitors use our sites so we can make them better and enhance the experience
  • Try out different ideas and display content that is most relevant to individual visitors

Our websites may use advertising and targeting cookies for retargeting purposes. These cookies store information from your browsing history to record your interests and your browsing journey on our sites. This enables us or our partners to:

  • Target advertising of our products to you on other websites, based on your visits to our sites
  • Match and combine more relevant information with targeted information so that our online advertisements you see are genuinely relevant to you and your interests.




Data processing and corresponding cookies are used on our websites. We divide data processing into various categories depending on its function and purpose. The usage of categories is described and can be managed below. Within each category, any data processing that may be used is listed including the cookies it generally uses.



Cookies support a better and faster online experience. A cookie is a small text file that stores internet settings. Almost every website uses cookies. When you visit a website for the first time, the cookies are downloaded by your internet browser. The next time you visit this website using the same end device, the website recognises you and displays content that is tailored to your personal needs and interests. The cookies mentioned below are synonymous with HTML5 Session Web Storage and HTML5 Local Web Storage.



First party cookies are cookies that we, or contracted service providers, place on the website and with which you interact if you continue to use our website.



Our websites may also contain content from other providers (third-party providers), who possibly use their own cookies. Third-party providers may place cookies during your visit to our websites that request information like, for example, whether you loaded one of our websites. Please go to the website of the third-party provider to learn more about their use of cookies. In the detailed list under “Modifications and Details”, you’ll find information on the respective third-party providers and a reference to their data privacy statement. You can reject cookies from third-party providers at any time, by using the corresponding function on our websites. When you reject all third-party cookies, we’ll only be able to provide you with the functionality on our websites that can be used without such cookies. In this case, the sections of our websites where third-party content is integrated, which requires the placing of third-party cookies, won’t be available to you. A notification will inform you of this. If you still want to access the unavailable content on the website, you’ll need to agree to the use of analytics and marketing cookies. Please use the corresponding function on our websites to give or revoke your consent. Please refer to the list of cookies for more information on integrated third party data processing (e.g. tags, scripts, pixels).



When you reject cookies that require your consent, we’ll duly accept your decision and refrain from placing the respective cookies. If you revoke your consent for cookies, we’ll stop placing cookies that require consent starting from your visit to the next page. We’ll delete any first-party cookies, insofar as this is technically possible. You may, of course, refuse the use of analytics and marketing cookies. However, this will prevent us from understanding what you like or dislike about our websites, and from making any necessary improvements. Please note that we cannot delete third-party cookies. If you would like to delete all third-party cookies, please go to your browser settings. We would also like to make you aware that revoking your consent to cookies won’t result in less advertising. Rather, it means that the displayed advertising isn’t tailored to your personal needs.



You can manage cookie settings via the aforementioned features on our website, and also through changing your browser settings (enable, disable and delete). Most browsers allow you to manage cookies by either accepting or rejecting all cookies. Go to the help section of your browser to learn more about how to manage and delete cookies. When you change your cookie settings, certain cookies will be blocked. In this case, you may not fully benefit from some features on our website. We may also be unable to provide you with certain content that you have previously seen or used.
