How long are cookies stored on your device?
On all our secure pages, we use temporary cookies (so-called "session cookies"), i.e. cookies that are limited to one session, to assign and store a session ID so that you can move back and forth between the different areas of our website without interruption. This session ID is also used for internal reporting purposes. It is not possible to identify you as a person using this session ID. Cookies of this type also do not leave any retrievable information on your hard disk. Most of your first-party cookies are session cookies that expire after you close your Internet browser.
Our first-party analysis cookies and third-party cookies are permanent cookies because they are used to help us recognize visitor patterns over time or to provide additional features. They may be stored on your computer for 24 hours, depending on the function they help to perform.
