However, if users deactivate the setting of cookies in your Internet browser, not all functions of our Website may be entirely usable.

Newsletters

On the Website, you may subscribe to our newsletter, which may be used for advertising purposes. All newsletters sent may contain tracking pixels. The pixel is embedded in emails and allows an analysis of the success of online marketing campaigns. Because of these tracking pixels, we may see if and when you open an email and which links within the email you click.

How Long We Retain Your Data:
