Most of the cookies used are so-called “session cookies”, which are only stored on your end device for a short time and are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal until you delete them. These cookies enable the recognition of a user when the web application is used again. If you do not agree with the use of cookies, you can block or delete the use of cookies at any time.
