Cookies can be set both by the website itself and by external web services. Cookies are set by our website or external web services in order to maintain the full functionality of our website, to improve the user experience or to pursue the purpose stated with your consent.

Insofar as another legal basis is mentioned according to the GDPR (e.g. for the fulfilment of a contract or for the fulfilment of legal obligations), the storage or setting takes place on the basis of an exception according to Section 25 (2) TTDSG. This is the case “if the sole purpose of storing information in the end user’s terminal equipment or the sole purpose of accessing information already stored in the end user’s terminal equipment is to carry out the transmission of a message via a public telecommunications network” or “where the storage of information in the end-user’s terminal equipment or the access to information already stored in the end-user’s terminal equipment is strictly necessary to enable the provider of a telemedia service to provide a telemedia service explicitly requested by the user”. Which legal basis is relevant can be seen from the cookie table listed later in this point.

Please note that the lawfulness of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until the revocation is not affected by this.
