Targeting Cookies

Marketing cookies are used to offer content that is more relevant to the user and adapted to his interests. They are also used to measure and control the effectiveness of campaigns. For example, they register whether a website has been visited or not, as well as which content has been used. This information is used to create an interest profile so that only content that is interesting for you is displayed. If you withdraw your consent to marketing cookies, this does not mean that you will see or receive less content as a result. Rather, it means that the content you see and receive is not tailored to your individual needs.
