      Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. These are transient cookies. They are deleted when you close the browser and save a so-called session ID with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the common session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website.

      Other cookies, persistent cookies, remain stored on your device and are deleted after a specified period. This can differ depending on the cookie. However, you can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.
