What is a cookie?
Some cookies are very useful because they can improve the online experience the next time you visit a website. Provided you use the same device and browser as the first time, cookies, for example, remember your preferences, tell you how you use a page and adapt the offer to your personal interests and needs.
Depending on their function and the intended purpose, cookies can be divided into 4 categories: strictly necessary cookies, functional cookies, performance cookies and cookies for marketing purposes.
Depending on their function and application, cookies can be divided into four categories*: strictly necessary cookies, functional cookies, performance cookies and cookies for marketing purposes.
Strictly necessary cookies:
Strictly necessary cookies are necessary for you to visit and use a website. Without these cookies, the functions of the website cannot be guaranteed, for example that the actions performed during a visit (e.g. text input or vehicle configuration) are retained, even when you navigate between different pages.
Functional cookies enable a website to store data already entered (such as user name, language choice or place of residence) and to offer more personal functions. For example, a website could provide local price-relevant VAT information if it uses a cookie to store the region the user is in. Functional cookies are also used to enable requested functions such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information, they do not track your movements on other websites.
Performance cookies collect information about how a website is used - for example, which pages a visitor visits most often and if they receive error messages from websites. These cookies do not store any information that can identify the user. The information collected is used for reports in an aggregated and anonymous form. These cookies are only used to improve the performance of a website and therefore the user experience.
Cookies for marketing purposes:
Marketing cookies are used to display targeted advertising messages that are relevant to the user and adapted to his interests. They are also used to limit the display frequency of an advertisement and measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. They register whether or not a website has been visited. This information may be shared with third parties, such as advertisers. Cookies to improve targeting and advertising are often linked to additional functions of third parties.

Cookies that are not strictly necessary to use the website fulfill an important task.
