Some of the websites use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, more effective and safer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are so-called "session cookies". They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when you close the browser.

This website uses Yandex Metrica, a web analysis service from Yandex OY, Moreenikatu 6, 04600 Mantsala, Finland. With the help of Yandex Metrica, based on our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR, pseudonymised visitor data is collected, evaluated and saved. From this data, pseudonymised usage profiles can be created and evaluated for the same purpose. Yandex Metrica uses so-called "cookies", that is, small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the visitor's Internet browser. These cookies serve, among other things, to recognize the browser and thus enable a more precise determination of the statistical data. The user's IP address is part of the information collected, but is pseudonymised immediately after it is collected and before it is saved by deleting the last octet in order to exclude any personal reference. The information generated by the cookie (including the pseudonymised IP address) is transferred to a Yandex server and stored there to safeguard the interests mentioned above.
The data collected with the Yandex technologies will not be used at any time to personally identify the visitor to this website without the separate consent of the person concerned, and will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym.
If you would like to deactivate the evaluation of user behavior via cookies, you can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and individually decide whether to accept them or to exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general.
