Cookies can basically be divided into three categories. There are cookies which are essential for the functionality of the website (so-called functional cookies), cookies which increase the level of comfort when visiting a website and, for example, save your language settings (so-called comfort cookies) and cookies which are used to create a pseudonymised user profile (so-called tracking cookies). This website only uses functional and tracking cookies.
The processing of functional cookies is necessary to enable you to visit the website (Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter b GDPR).
Tracking cookies are only set if the website visitor has given his/her consent (Article 6 Paragraph 1 letter a GDPR). Consent is given via the so-called cookie banner, which must be actively clicked on.
You can revoke your consent to the data processing described above by using the listed cookies and tracking tools at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the following link and changing your currently set preferences in our Cookie Consent Manager:

II. Adobe Analytics
This website uses the web analysis tool Adobe Analytics to evaluate user access to this website. Data processing is in so far is based on your consent (Article 6 paragraph 1 letter a GDPR).
For evaluation purposes, cookies are stored on your end device and information about them is collected, which is also stored on servers of our data processor Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited (“Adobe”). Access to the information by Adobe Systems Incorporated, a U.S.-based company, cannot be excluded. EU standard contractual clauses have been agreed to, to offer adequate safeguards on data protection for the processing in non-European countries. You have the right to be informed about this standard contract as part of the information provided.
A direct personal reference of the information stored on the Adobe servers is excluded, because Adobe Analytics is used with the settings “Before Geo-Lookup: Replace visitor’s last IP octet with 0” and “Obfuscate IP-Removed”. The setting “Before Geo-Lookup: Replace visitor’s last IP octet with 0” ensures that the IP address is anonymized by replacing the last octet of the IP address with zeros before this so-called geolocalization. The approximate location of the user is added to the tracking packet for statistical evaluation, which still contains the full IP address. Before the tracking packet is saved, the IP address is replaced by a single fixed IP address – this is called a generic IP address – if the setting “Obfuscate IP -Removed” is configured. This means that the IP address is no longer contained in a stored data record.
