We only use this information to optimally display the website according to the user’s preferences. However, only terminal cookies are identified here. Data storage beyond this only takes place if the user expressly agrees or if storage is absolutely necessary for the use of the services offered.

Essential cookies (necessarily required) ensure that our website or the services we provide function properly, which means that without these cookies the website or service may not function as intended. These types of cookies are only used by the web operator (first party cookies) and any information stored in the cookies is only sent to our website.
