What Are Cookies?
Cookies are text files with small amounts of information that are downloaded by the accessed website to any device with internet access, such as your computer, mobile phone, or tablet. Cookies are then sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit or to another website that recognizes that cookie. Cookies perform many different and useful tasks, such as remembering your settings, preferences, past actions, or helping us provide you with the best services. Cookies can store a wide range of information, including personal data (such as name or email). However, this information can only be stored if you enable it – websites cannot access information that you have not given them consent to, and they cannot access other files on your device. Most browsers support cookies, but you can adjust your settings to reject and delete them whenever you want.
What Types of Cookies Are Used?

- Performance cookies: These collect information about how visitors use the website and allow us to recognize and count the number of visitors. They are used to analyze and improve the website's functionality, ensuring that users easily find what they are looking for. We measure the effectiveness of our advertising and communications. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and anonymous.
- Functionality cookies: These allow the website to remember choices you have made and provide more personalized features. They enable us to personalize content for you and remember your preferences, such as your username, language, or text size. The information can be anonymous and cannot track your browsing activity on other websites.
- Marketing cookies: These are typically third-party cookies used to display ads that are more relevant to you. They may also limit the number of times you see a particular ad and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They remember your visits and preferences on the site.

Third parties that set cookies through our website may also try to determine your interests, and this information may be used to present you with content or advertisements. In this case, information about your current website visit may be combined with information from previous visits to websites that are not ours.
We will always set necessary cookies on your device when you visit our website unless your browser settings reject cookies. By disabling cookies, you decide whether you allow the storage of cookies on your device. You can always delete or prevent the storage of certain cookies.

Control via Browser Setting
Most internet browsers are initially set to automatically accept cookies. If you do not want our website to store cookies on your device, you can change your browser settings to receive a warning before certain cookies are stored. You can also withdraw your consent to cookies by deleting cookies that have already been stored. The procedures for changing settings and cookies vary from browser to browser. If necessary, use the Help function in your browser or click on one of the links below to directly access the user guide for your browser.
Furthermore, you can configure your browser to reject most of our cookies or only specific third-party cookies. If you want to accept cookies only from us and not from third parties, you can usually (depending on the browser) select "Block third-party cookies" in the settings. Disabling tracking cookies does not necessarily mean that you will receive fewer ads from us. It simply means that the advertising you receive will not be tailored to your interests.
