Strictly Necessary Cookies
These cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around the websites and use the features, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. Without these cookies, services requested through usage of our websites cannot be properly provided.
Strictly necessary cookies do not require consent from the user under applicable law. You may configure your web browser to block strictly necessary cookies, but you might then not be able to use the websites’ functionalities as intended.

They help us to better understand a user’s behavior on our webpages. This is necessary to improve the user friendliness of a website and therefore enhance the user’s experience.
Further information collected by performance cookies may include internet browser and operating system used, the domain name of the website which you previously visited, the number of visits, average duration of visit, and pages called up.
