7. Cookies and Retargeting
Cookies are small files which are stored on your data carrier and which store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Basically, we distinguish between two different types of cookies, so-called session cookies, which are deleted as soon as you close your browser, and temporary/permanent cookies, which are stored on your data carrier for a longer period of time or indefinitely. This storage helps us to design our website and our offers for you accordingly and makes it easier for you to use, for example by storing certain entries you make so that you do not have to keep repeating them.
In this respect, cookies help in many aspects to make your visit to the platform easier, more pleasant and more meaningful. Cookies are alphanumeric information files that your web browser automatically stores on your computer's hard drive when you visit our website.
However, you can set your browser to accept cookies only if you agree to this. As a rule, the help function in the menu bar of your web browser will show you how to reject new cookies and deactivate those you have already received.
We would like to point out that deactivating cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of the platform.
The online platform uses cookie technology to collect data. This is to optimise the offer and the advertising. The data is anonymised and not used to identify you personally. At no time will your data be merged with personal data stored by us. With the help of the anonymised data, we can make our online offer more attractive for you and present you with offers, services and advertising that correspond to your areas of interest.We use so-called re-targeting technologies. These technologies make it possible to address users who have already visited the portal with advertising on the websites of our partners. We are convinced that the display of personalised advertising is generally more interesting for the user than advertising without a personal reference. We use cookie technology and the analysis of previous user behaviour to display advertising. The data used is anonymised and is never merged with personal data. Personal data is not stored at any time.
DBy using the portal, the user consents to the use of so-called cookies and thus to the anonymous collection, storage and use of usage data.

Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, we have set up an IP anonymisation tool on our website to protect your data, so that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union and in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there
