For simplicity, unless there is reason to differentiate, such technologies are defined as "trackers" within this document. For example, while cookies can be used in both web and mobile browsers, they do not qualify as browser-based trackers in mobile apps. Therefore, this document uses the term cookie only when specifically referring to the type of tracker.
Some of the processing purposes for which trackers are used require user consent, depending on the applicable law. If consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the procedure described in this document.
This website uses provider-owned trackers (so-called "first-party trackers") and third-party trackers in connection with third-party services (so-called "third-party trackers"). Unless otherwise stated within this document, such third parties also have access to the trackers they manage. The validity period and expiration of cookies and other similar trackers depend on the lifetime defined by the provider or the respective third-party provider. Some of them expire as soon as the user ends the browsing session.
In order to obtain more detailed and up-to-date information on the lifespan as well as other information - such as regarding the use of further trackers - users are referred to the descriptions of the categories listed below as well as, in addition, to the linked privacy statements of corresponding third-party providers or to contact the provider.
