Among other things, our website uses so-called “cookies”, which serve to make our internet presence more user-friendly, more effective and safer – e.g. when it comes to speeding up navigation on our platform. In addition, cookies enable us to measure the frequency of page visits and general navigation. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. We would like to point out that some of these cookies are transferred from our server to your computer system, which is usually referred to as “session cookies”. “Session cookies” are characterised by the fact that they are automatically deleted from your hard disk after the end of the browser session. Other cookies remain on your computer system and allow us to recognise your computer system on your next visit (so-called persistent cookies). You can, of course, reject cookies, if your browser allows this.
