What are cookies
A cookie is a small file that stores Internet settings. Nearly all websites use cookie technology.
This technology is downloaded by your internet browser the first time you visit a website. The next time you access this website from the same device, the cookie and the information stored in it is either sent back to the site that generated it (first-party cookie) or to a different website to which it belongs (third-party cookie). This enables the website to recognise whether you have already accessed the site through this browser, and, in many cases, it may then vary the content displayed.
Some cookies can be extremely useful, because they improve the user experience when you return to a site you have already visited several times. As long as you use the same terminal and the same browser, cookies will remember your preferences for the site, for example, and make the offers displayed more relevant to your personal interests and needs.
Cookies exempt from consent on this website
Strictly necessary cookies cannot be disabled via the function of this page. In general, you can disable cookies at any time in your browser.
List of cookies exempt from consent
Cookies exempt from consent or essential cookies are needed so that you can navigate a website and use its features. Without these cookies, functionalities cannot be guaranteed – for example, actions taken during a visit (e.g., text entry or vehicle configuration) may not be preserved when navigating between different pages of the site.
Cookies subject to consent on this website
Cookies that by legal definition are not strictly necessary to use the website fulfil important tasks. Without these cookies, functions intended for your surfing convenience on our website, such as watching embedded YouTube videos, would no longer be available.
Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the Internet. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of 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.
The IP address transmitted by the user's browser is not merged with other data from Google. Users may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on their browser software; users may also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the available browser plugin.
The users’ personal data is deleted or anonymized after 14 months.
Managing and deleting cookies
With the cookie control above we offer the possibility easily to accept or deny cookies subject to consent on this website.
You can also block and delete cookies by altering your browser settings. Most browsers allow you to manage your cookies by either accepting or rejecting all cookies or accepting only certain types of cookies. The procedure for managing and deleting cookies can be found in the browser’s integrated help function.
