Cookies and right of objection for direct advertising
"Cookies" are small files that are saved on users' computers. Different information can 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 after his visit to an online service. 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 store or a login status can be stored. Cookies are described as "permanent" or "persistent" if they remain stored even after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved if the user visits it after several days. Likewise, the interests of the users can be stored in such a cookie, which is used for range measurement or marketing purposes. Third-party cookies are cookies that are offered by providers other than the person responsible for operating the website (otherwise, if it is only their cookies, it is called "first-party cookies").

We can 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 can lead to functional limitations of this online offer. A general objection to the use of cookies used for online marketing purposes can be declared for many of the services, especially in the case of tracking, via the US site www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU site www.youronlinechoices.com. Furthermore, the storage of cookies can be achieved by deactivating them in the browser settings. Please note that in this case not all functions of this online offer can be used.

If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be retained for commercial or tax law reasons.
