Temporary cookies, "session" - or "transient" cookies are cookies that are being deleted after a user has left an online offer and has closed his browser. Such a cookie can contain for example the content of a shopping cart within an online shop or a login status. "Permanent" or "persistent" cookies remain saved after closing the browser. That's how, for example, a login status can be saved when user's are coming back to it after a few days. Also, a permanent / persistent cookie can contain the interests of a user that will be used for reach measures or marketing purposes. "Third party cookies" are being offered by other provider than the responsible provider of the online offer (alternatively, if it's just their cookies it is referred to as "first party cookies").

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

This website uses the "demographic characteristics" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time via the display setting in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as shown in the item "Google Analytics".

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one end device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC). If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every device on which you log in with your Google account.

The legitimate interest arises from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymized analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.
