This website uses trackers.
For the sake of simplicity, unless there is reason to differentiate, such technologies are defined as "trackers" within this policy. For example, while cookies can be used in both web and mobile browsers, they cannot be used as browser-based tackers in mobile apps. Therefore, the term cookie is only used in this policy when specifically referring to the type of tracker.
Some of the processing purposes for which trackers are used require user consent. If consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the procedure described in this Policy.
This website uses the provider's own trackers (so-called "first-party trackers") and third-party trackers in connection with third-party services (so-called "third-party trackers"). Except as otherwise provided within this policy, such third parties also have access to the trackers they manage.
The validity and expiry of cookies and other similar trackers depend on the lifetime specified by the provider or the respective third party. Some of these expire as soon as the user ends the browser session.
In order to provide more accurate and up-to-date lifespan information and other information - e.g. B. regarding the use of other trackers - users are referred to the descriptions of the categories listed below and, in addition, to the linked data protection declarations of the corresponding third-party providers or to contacting the provider.

Targeting & Advertising
This website uses trackers to provide personalized advertising content based on behavior and to administer, display and track advertisements. Some of the services used by the provider participate in the IAB Transparency and Consent Framework. This initiative promotes responsible privacy practices within the digital advertising industry, offering users more transparency and control over how their data is processed for ad tracking purposes. Users can adjust their own advertising settings at any time via the corresponding function in the cookie notice or via the corresponding link accessible via this website. This website participates in the IAB Europe Transparency and Consent Framework and complies with the relevant specifications and guidelines. This website uses iubenda (identification number 123) as a consent management platform
(1) Remarketing and behavioral targeting
This type of service allows this website and its partners to analyze how this website has been used in the user's previous sessions in order to target, optimize and deploy advertising. This activity is facilitated by tracking usage data and using trackers that collect information which is then transmitted to the partners who manage the remarketing and behavioral targeting activities. Some services offer a remarketing option based on email address lists. In addition to the possible objection options offered by the individual services listed below, users can declare their objection via the Network Advertising Initiative Opt-Out Page. Users may also opt out of certain advertising features through appropriate device settings, such as device advertising settings for mobile phones or advertising settings in general.

Manage settings and give or revoke consent
The management of tracker settings as well as the granting and withdrawal of consent can be done in different ways:
Users can manage tracker settings directly from their own device settings, e.g. B. completely contradict the use or storage of trackers.
If the use of trackers is based on consent, users can also give or revoke consent by making a corresponding selection in the cookie notice or by changing the selection mentioned via the corresponding consent widget (if available).
Trackers that have already been saved, including those responsible for saving the original user consent, can also be deleted via the appropriate browser or device settings.
Other trackers stored in the browser's local storage can be removed by clearing the history.
Manage tracker settings
For example, users can find information on how to manage cookies via the most common browsers at the following addresses:
Microsoft Internet Explorer
Users can also manage certain trackers deployed within mobile apps through respective device settings - for example through device settings related to advertising on mobile devices, or through tracking settings in general (users can go to device settings and find the corresponding commands).
How to Opt Out of Interest-Based Advertising
In addition, users are advised that they can follow the guidance provided by YourOnlineChoices (EU), Network Advertising Initiative (US) and Digital Advertising Alliance (US), DAAC (Canada), DDAI (Japan) or other similar services. Such initiatives allow the user to set their tracking preferences for almost all advertising tools. The provider therefore recommends users to make use of these means in addition to the information provided in this policy. The Digital Advertising Alliance offers the AppChoices application to control interest-based advertising in mobile apps.
Consequences of refusing consent
Users are free to decide whether to give their consent or not. However, it should be noted that trackers help this website to provide users with a better user experience and enhanced functionality (in line with the purposes described in this policy). Without the user's consent, the provider may therefore not be able to provide corresponding functions. Since the use of third-party trackers by this website cannot be fully controlled by the provider, all information on third-party trackers is indicative. For complete information, users are asked to review the privacy statements of the respective third-party providers listed in this policy. Due to the objective complexity of tracking technologies, users are encouraged to contact the provider if they wish to receive further information on the use of such technologies by this website.
