Cookies and right to object to direct advertising


“Cookies” are small files that are stored on users’ computers. Different information may be stored within the cookies. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user (or the device on which the cookie is stored) during or even after his visit within an online offer. Temporary cookies, or "session cookies" or "transient cookies", are cookies that are deleted after a user leaves an online offer and closes his browser. In such a cookie, for example, the contents of a shopping cart in an online shop or a login status can be stored. The term “permanent” or “persistent” refers to cookies that remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if users visit it after several days. Likewise, the interests of the users may be stored in such a cookie, which are used for reach measurement or marketing purposes. “Third-party cookies” are cookies that are offered by providers other than the controller who operates the online offer (otherwise, if they are only his cookies, we speak of “first-party cookies”).

We may use temporary and permanent cookies and clarify this in the context of our privacy policy.

If users do not want cookies to be stored on their computer, they are asked to deactivate the corresponding option in the system settings of their browser. Stored cookies can be deleted in the system settings of the browser. The exclusion of cookies may lead to functional limitations of this online offer.

Unless explicitly stated in this privacy policy, the data stored by us will be deleted as soon as they are no longer required for their intended purpose and the deletion does not conflict with statutory retention obligations.
