You cannot deny the use of such cookies except by changing your browser settings – however, after that, the website and all its services might no longer function normally.

General uses of cookies

Cookies have a variety of different uses. These purposes can be divided into the following general categories:

Essential cookies

These cookies are necessary for the proper functioning of our website and for us to ensure that it is protected against unusual activities. These cookies are usually set only in response to actions and requests you make, such as changing your privacy settings, logging in or filling out forms.

Analytics cookies

These cookies are often used to improve the performance of our website, as they allow us to analyse visitor flows, the number of users and the sources of online traffic. This type of cookie is not strictly necessary for the operation of our website, but is, for example, intended to tell us which pages you find the most interesting. Analytics cookies allow us to use the information collected about you to provide you with an individual and therefore the best possible user experience on our website. This means, for example, that we can make sure that the pages you visit are ready to receive an appropriate number of visitors and thus load faster.

Functional cookies

These cookies are used to improve the performance of our website and to streamline your browsing experience, for example by ensuring that the website you visit loads faster and that the website remembers your saved choices, such as your language preferences. Much of the information collected by functional cookies is of a general nature and may include, for example, information about the browser typically used. This information helps us, among other things, to analyse visitor and user flows.
