What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that most websites store in users’ browsers used to access the internet and that are deployed for the purpose of recognising devices used by a user to gain access, the user’s settings (language, currency, resolution, etc.) and other access characteristics (connection speed, type and settings of web browser, etc.). The storage of cookies is fully controlled by the browser being used by the user at a certain moment. If the user so wishes, they may restrict or disable the storage of cookies in the browser’s settings. However, this may mean that certain functions of our website do not work or work less efficiently for that user.

Essential cookies are required to ensure that the site runs smoothly (e.g. video and sound content) and for the anonymous analysis of website use. They are installed when you perform any action on the website effected via clicking on a simple link. Under the GDPR, we do not require your consent for these cookies. If you fully disable all cookies in the browser, you may not be able to view our website. Analytical cookies on our website are set so that users’ IP addresses are automatically hidden. This means that your identity remains hidden. Where stated in the table below, the analytical data that we process via cookies is processed on our behalf by external providers (the cookies are stored with them). If data is thereby transferred to countries outside the EU, the country and security measure employed are stated.
