Use of cookies

We use solutions and technologies provided by econda GmbH ( www.econda.de ) to record and store anonymized data from which usage profiles are created under pseudonyms for the purposes of customizing and optimizing our website.

In particular, IP addresses are made unrecognizable directly after their receipt, so that no usage profiles can be traced back to IP addresses. Processing is carried out based on legitimate interest on our part. Visitors to this website can object here to this data collection and storage at any time with effect for the future.
