For this purpose, relevant access data is stored and used - in anonymized form - to optimize the web offer. Access profiles are not created.

Usage of cookies

This website uses the following types of cookies, the extent and functionality of which are explained below:

  •     transient cookies
  •     persistent cookies

Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include, in particular, session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which various requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. This tells Youtube which pages you are visiting. If you are logged into your Youtube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your Youtube account beforehand.

If a Youtube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when watching Youtube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

Use of analytics services

For the customization and optimization of this Website, anonymized data are collected and stored through the solutions and technologies of econda GmbH (, and these data form the basis of user profiles using pseudonyms. Cookies that recognize an internet browser may also be used for this purpose. However, user profiles are not associated with data of the bearer of the pseudonym without their express consent. In particular, IP addresses are anonymized immediately after they are collected, which makes it impossible to associate user profiles with IP addresses. The pseudonymized data are used in accordance with the provisions of Section 15 (3) German Telemedia Act (TMG). Visitors to this Website may object to the collection and storage of these data at any time with effect for the future by clicking here.
