4.1 What are cookies?

Cookies are small text files that are sent to users when they visit a website and are stored in their browser. If a user returns to the same website again, the user's browser sends the contents of the cookies back to the website and thus enables the user to be recognized. Certain cookies are automatically deleted at the end of a browser session (session cookies), while others are stored for a specified time and then delete themselves automatically or stored permanently in the user's browser (temporary or permanent cookies).

4.2 What data are stored in cookies?

Cookies normally do not store any data that identify you as a person (e.g. no names, e-mail addresses or IP addresses). Instead, cookies typically contain a code (identifier) as well as information on the storage period and possibly also certain technical features (e.g. security functions). Nonetheless, cookies can be used to create usage profiles.

5. Web analytics

We need statistical information about the use of our online recruitment site in order to make it more user-friendly, to measure its reach and to conduct market research. We use analytical tools for these purposes. The usage profiles, which the tools create with the help of functional cookies and by evaluating the log files, are not combined with personal data.
