A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier.
Cookies enable our systems to recognize the user's device and to make any default settings available immediately. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transferred to the hard drive of the respective user's computer.

The providers (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") thus perceive the IP address of the respective user.
Even if we endeavor to only use third-party providers who only need the IP address in order to be able to deliver content, we have no influence on whether the IP address is possibly saved. In this case, this process serves, among other things, statistical purposes. If we learn that the IP address is being saved, we will point this out to you.
