This is particularly the case if our web pages contain so-called embedded elements; these are texts, documents, images or films that are stored with another party but which are shown on, in or via our website.


If you encounter cookies on this website that fall into this category and which we have not mentioned above, please let us know. Or contact the third party directly and ask which cookies they have placed, what the reason is, what the lifespan of the cookie is and how they have safeguarded your privacy.

If you do not want websites to place cookies on your computer at all, you can change your browser settings so that you receive a warning before cookies are placed. You can also change the settings in such a way that your browser rejects all cookies or only the cookies of third parties. You can also delete cookies that have already been placed. Please note that you will need to change the settings separately for each browser and computer you use.


Please be aware that if you do not want cookies, we will no longer be able to guarantee that our website is working properly. It is possible that some functions of the site are lost or even that you can't see certain websites at all.
