TLS encryption with https

You can tell that this form of data transfer protection is being used when you see the small lock symbol in the top left of the browser and if the scheme https (instead of http) is used as part of our internet address.
Our website uses HTTP cookies to save user-specific data.
A cookie is a small data package that is exchanged between the web browser and the web server, but is completely meaningless for them. It only takes on a meaning for a web application, such as an online shop, for e.g. the contents of a virtual shopping cart.
There are two types of cookies: first-party cookies are created by our website, third-party cookies are created by other websites (e.g. Google Analytics).
There are three categories of cookies: cookies that are absolutely necessary to ensure basic functions of the website, functional cookies to ensure the performance of the website, and targeted cookies to improve the user experience.
Type 1: Functional cookies
Type 2: Technical cookies
Type 3: Analytical cookies

If you do not want data to be stored in cookies, you can set up your browser so that it informs you about cookies being placed and that you only allow such placement in individual cases. You can delete cookies that are already on your computer or deactivate cookies at any time. The procedure for doing this differs depending on the browser; it is best to search for the instructions in Google using the search keywords “delete cookies Chrome” or “deactivate cookies in Chrome” when using a Chrome browser or swap the word “Chrome” for the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.
On our website we use Google Fonts from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.). The use of Google Fonts is without authentication and no cookies are sent to the Google Fonts API. If you have a Google account, none of your Google account data will be transmitted to Google while using Google Fonts. Google merely records the use of CSS and the fonts used, and stores such data securely. Find out more about this at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq
