We transfer these cookies via your web browser to the hard drive of your computer where we store them during your current visit and for a period of up to 30 days beyond that to enable us to read them. Please note that certain cookies are already set when you visit our website. You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your computer by making appropriate settings in your browser. However, this may limit the range of functions of our website for you.

If you have consented to this, your personal data may be transferred to servers of a third party (e.g. Google, YouTube, etc.) whose servers are located in the USA or another third country (i.e. a country outside the European Economic Area (EEA)). We would like to point out that there is no adequate level of data protection in the USA that is comparable with the EU standard. Therefore, there is a risk of access to this data by governmental authorities. This risk may also exist with regard to other third countries. The permissibility of these data transfers to the USA and other affected third countries results from Art. 49 paragraph (1) sentence 1 lit. a) GDPR.
