Types of cookies and third-party requests

We use the following types of cookies and requests:

Functional cookies

These are necessary for the performance of the site, for example to remember your preferences. We do not have to ask for permission for using these cookies.

Statistics cookies

These provide insight into how visitors use our websites, which pages are visited the most and which keywords people use to search. This allows us to improve our websites. Our web statistics and Hotjar-data are encrypted and processed anonymously.

The data is not automatically shared with Google. When we do share cookies, we have clearly specified terms with Google about the security and use of your personal data. Also, our own Google analytics cookies are not used in combination with other Google services such as DoubleClick or AdWords. We do not have to ask for permission for using these cookies. But we do want to inform you about them.

Hotjar automatically respects any Do Not Track setting in browsers. You can turn Do Not Track on or off in your browser settings for your browsing traffic.

Marketing cookies and third-party requests

We have maps and videos as embedded third-party content on our websites. These parties can send various cookies and requests along with the content, including marketing cookies and third-party requests. These are not loaded until you accept the cookies.
