Cookies do not harm your device, do not contain viruses, Trojans, or other malicious software. Cookie information is stored, and may result in a connection with a specific terminal or browser being used. This does not, however, mean that we are immediately aware of your identity. The use of cookies serves to increase the usability of the Services. For example, we use session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages, or that you have completed certain tasks or reached certain goals.

We use this data in pseudonymous form for general statistical evaluations as well as for the optimization and further development of our content and customer communication. This is done with the help of small graphics that are embedded in the email (so-called pixels). The data is collected exclusively pseudonymized and also not linked with your other personal information. Legal basis for this is our forementioned legitimate interest.

Thereafter, we delete the data immediately, unless we need the data until the expiration of the statutory limitation period for evidence for civil claims or for statutory storage requirements. Even after that, we sometimes have to save your data for accounting reasons. We are obliged to do so because of legal documentation obligations which may arise from legal obligations. The deadlines for storing documents are two to ten years. N. Data security If you have created an account, access to this account is only possible after entering your personal password.

Firebase services encrypt data in transit using HTTPS, and also encrypted in the database. Firebase logically isolates customer data. In addition, we take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
