Information about cookies
Cookies are little files that are saved on your device. They can be used to determine whether our web pages have already been accessed from your device. Only the cookie on your device is identified. Personal data can only be saved in cookies if you have agreed for this to happen, or if this is essential for technical reasons, e.g. to enable you to log in to a restricted area.

When saving cookies, we will determine a time limit for retaining data. After several days it can be defined to a certain date or to a so-called session. Session means that the cookie will stay active until you close out the browser completely or do a restart. It will not suffice to close a certain window to delete the cookie.
