1. What are cookies and what information do they collect?

Our website uses cookies as part of the service. Cookies are small text files that are sent from a web server to your computer (more precisely: stored in your browser directory) as soon as you visit the website. We also collect your IP address when you visit our website. This information is used, for example, to provide us as the operator of the website with statistical information about the use of the website.

Our websites may place session and persistent cookies on your device. The difference between a session and a persistent cookie depends on the duration of the cookie. Session cookies are cookies that are generally valid for as long as you use your browser or browsing session. When you end your browser session, the cookie expires. Persistent cookies are, as the name suggests, persistent and last even after you close your browser. This allows, for example, faster and often more convenient access to our website.

1.3 Cookies from first and third party providers

Our websites may set third-party cookies and allow third parties to place cookies on your device. The difference between a first-party cookie and a third-party cookie relates to the control of the party serving the cookie. First-party cookies are cookies that are specific to the website that created them. Their use enables us to operate an efficient service and track the behavioural patterns of visitors to the website. Third-party cookies, on the other hand, are placed on your device by a third-party provider (i.e. not by us). Although we may allow third parties to access the Website to place these cookies on users' devices, we do not retain control over the information provided by the cookies, nor do we retain access to this data. This information is entirely controlled by said third party provider and is subject to their privacy policy. The legal basis for the collection of information by third-party cookies depends on the type of cookie, see above.
