This Cookies Policy provides the following information for users:
A cookie is a small data file, often including a unique identifier, which is sent to your computer, mobile phone, or tablet device (referred to in this policy as a “device”) by the web server so the website can remember some information about your browsing activity on the website. The cookie will collect information relating to your use of our Services, information about your device, e.g., the device’s IP address and browser type, broad location, and, if you arrived at our site via a link from a third party site, the URL of the linking page. Suppose you have registered for any Services or you are a subscriber. In that case, it may also collect your name and email address, which may be transferred to data processors for registered user or subscriber verification purposes.
Similar technologies known as “local storage” may also be used in our Services as an alternative to cookies. This is a technology that is similar to cookies and performs very similar functions, such as caching data to enable us to improve our Services, allowing you to register for our Services, and tracking activity to enable our advertisers and us to advertise to you in accordance with this policy and counting the number of people who view adverts on our Services. Where we refer to “cookies” in this policy, we mean cookies or similar technologies.
Cookies record information about your online preferences and help us to tailor our Services to your interests. Information provided by cookies can help us to analyze your use of our Services and help us to provide you with a better user experience.
In addition to cookies, our Services may also use web beacons, clear GIFs, page tags, and web bugs. These are all types of technology implemented by websites or third-party ad servers to allow them to analyze your website use and help improve your experience of the Services.
Essential or Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential for the running of our Services. Without these cookies, parts of our websites would not function. These cookies do not track where you have been on the internet and do not remember preferences beyond your current visit and do not gather information about you that could be used for marketing purposes. These cookies are usually session cookies that will expire when you close your browsing session.
Functional cookies are essential to the running of our Services. They are used to remember your preferences on our websites and to provide enhanced, more personal features. The information collected by these cookies is usually anonymized, so we cannot identify you personally. Company’s cookies do not track your internet usage or gather information that could be used for selling advertising, but they do help with serving to advertise. They may be set by third-party providers whose services we have added to our page or by us.
Analytical Performance and Measurement Cookies
Analytical performance cookies are used to monitor the performance of our Services, for example, to determine the number of page views and the number of unique users a website has. Web analytics services may be designed and operated by third parties. The information provided by these cookies allows us to analyze user behavior patterns and use that information to enhance user experience or identify areas of the website that may require maintenance. The data is anonymous (i.e., it cannot be used to identify you and does not contain personal information such as your name and email address), and it is only used for statistical purposes.
Targeting or Behavioral Advertising Cookies
These cookies may be placed on your device by our trusted third-party service providers or us. Remember that you have visited a website and use that information to provide you with content or advertising tailored to your interests. This is often called online behavioral advertising (OBA) and is done by grouping shared interests based on web browsing history. Your web browsing history can be used to infer things about you (e.g., your age, gender, etc.), and this information may also be used to make advertising on websites more relevant to you. Without these cookies, the content and advertisements you encounter may be less relevant to you and your interests.
Our website uses plugins from YouTube, which is operated by Google. The operator of the pages is YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
If you visit one of our pages featuring a YouTube plugin, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. Here the YouTube server is informed about which of our pages you have visited.
If you’re logged in to your YouTube account, YouTube allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
YouTube is used to help make our website appealing. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO. Learn more here.

The information is transmitted to a Vimeo server in the US, where it is stored.
If you are logged in to your Vimeo account, Vimeo allows you to associate your browsing behavior directly with your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out of your Vimeo account.
Google Web Fonts
For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is done in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our plugin. This constitutes a justified interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) DSGVO.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
This site utilizes caching in order to facilitate a faster response time and better user experience. Caching potentially stores a duplicate copy of every web page that is on display on this site. All cache files are temporary and are never accessed by any third party, except as necessary to obtain technical support from the cache plugin vendor. Cache files expire on a schedule set by the site administrator but may easily be purged by the admin before their natural expiration, if necessary. We may use QUIC cloud services to process & cache your data temporarily. Please see https://quic.cloud/privacy-policy/ for more details.
NOTE: Company uses collected data for site performance and internal use only. We will sell or otherwise distribute your data to any third-party services, or any other entity.
Cookies, including those which have already been set, can be deleted from your hard drive. You can also change the preferences/settings in your web browser to control cookies. Some internet browsers have a ‘Do Not Track or ‘DNT’ setting; this sends a signal to websites asking them not to track your browsing.
