4. Use of Cookies

A cookie is a text file containing an identification number which, when the website is used, is transmitted to the user's computer together with the other data actually requested and stored there. The file is kept there for later access and serves to authenticate the user. Since cookies are only simple files and not executable programs, they do not pose any danger to the computer.

Depending on the settings selected by the user in their internet browser, the latter automatically accepts cookies. However this setting can be changed and the storage of cookies deactivated or set in such a way that the user is informed as soon as a cookie is set. If the use of cookies is deactivated, some functions of the website may not be available or may only be available to a limited extent. You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of a corresponding setting in the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.

Cookies that are already active can be deleted at any time via the settings of your internet browser or other software programs. We may work together with advertising partners who help us to make our online offer more interesting for you. In this case, cookies from partner companies may also be stored on your hard drive when you visit our website (cookies from third parties).
