Cookies, Pixels

“Cookies” are small files which allow us to store information relevant to you, the user, on your PC or any other terminal device while you are browsing our website. For instance, cookies help us to determine the frequency of use and the number of users on our websites, to analyze the user behavior on our website, to estimate its advertising effectiveness, to increase safety and to design our website as comfortable, efficient and interesting as possible for you. The website uses so-called “session cookies” with which you can be identified during the duration of your visit. After the end of your session, these cookies expire automatically.

Our website also uses “permanent cookies” to record information on visitors who repeatedly access our website. The purpose of the application of these permanent cookies is to continuously improve our website and our services for you. The permanent cookies do not contain personal data. Name, IP address etc. are not stored. Creation of a single profile regarding your user behavior is not realized.

In your browser, you can deactivate the storage of cookies, limit it to certain websites or configure your browser in such a way that it will notify you as soon as a cookie is sent.

We use so-called pixels, web beacons, clear GIFs or similar mechanisms (in short “Pixels”). A pixel is an image file or rather a link to an image file which is entered in the website code but which is not located on your terminal device (e.g. computer, smartphone etc.). We mainly use pixels for the same reasons that we use cookies. For instance, they allow us to count the number of users visiting our website or to determine if and when an e-mail was opened when the user’s e-mail program permits HTML. Pixels help us to check and optimize the efficiency of our website and advertising campaigns. When using pixels, we do not establish a personal reference. A personal tracking does no take place either. Pixels usually work in conjunction with cookies. When you have deactivated cookies, then the pixel will only determine an anonymous visit to the website.
