Information about cookies!

What is a cookie?

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer in your browser. Our websites also use cookies. These do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses or Trojans.
Visited web pages send information to the browser, which then creates the cookie text file. When the user later returns to the web page, the browser reads the cookie and sends the information to the web page.

Why are cookies used?

Cookies are used to make web offers more user-friendly and effective. They are used, for example, to improve the offer. Login data and the contents of shopping carts are also stored in cookies, so that the user does not have to reenter all data every time. Session cookies mean quick and easy access to websites for you.
Internet browsers allow privacy and privacy control over the storage of cookies on your computer. In most cases a distinction is made between cookies from the visited website (FIRST PARTY) and cookies from third party providers (THIRD PARTY).

Security while surfing

Browsers visit websites either through an unencrypted connection such as http:// or encrypted with https://. On https:// in the address bar of the web pages you should pay particular attention when shopping in online shops, contact forms or connections to networks.
It is also important to use an up-to-date virus scanner. This can prevent fraud by fraudsters and the files can not be used as spyware to spy on browsing habits. If you share your computer with other users, you should make the settings so that the private data is deleted when closing the browser. After termination, delete all cookies when using public computers.

Government regulations

In Europe there are laws that regulate the use of cookies by websites. Every visitor to a website must receive clear information about the use of cookies. On May 25, 2018, the new DSGVO was introduced Europe-wide. So you should find now on every website information about privacy and about the use of cookies and can respond to it.
