2. Statistical/analysis cookies

These cookies are used for statistical purposes in order to analyse the use of the website and to optimise our offering through the evaluation of campaigns we have carried out, for example. These cookies are used to improve the user-friendliness of the website and thus the user experience. They collect information about how the website is used, the number of visits, the average time spent on the website, and the pages that are called. These cookies help to identify the elements of our Internet offering that are used most frequently and enable the further development of the website in accordance with the needs of visitors.
