We distinguish four types of cookie:
- Unconditionally required cookies (type a)
- Functional and Performance Cookies (Type b)
- Cookies requiring consent (type c)
- Administration and deletion of all cookies
Unconditionally required cookies (type a)
Cookies that are absolutely necessary guarantee functions without which you cannot use our web pages as intended. These cookies are used exclusively by us and are therefore first party cookies. This means that all information stored in the cookies is returned to our website. The use of absolutely necessary cookies on our website is possible without your consent. You can manage cookies in your browser settings at any time.
Functional and Performance Cookies (Type b)
For this purpose we use functional cookies in order to analyse the visitor behaviour on our website. These cookies help us, for example, to determine whether and which subpages of our website are visited and in which content users are particularly interested. In particular, we record the number of visits to a page, the number of sub-pages viewed, the time spent on our website, the order of pages visited, which search terms have led you to us, the country, region and, if applicable, city from which access is made, as well as the proportion of mobile devices that access our websites. As a result, we can tailor the content of our website more specifically to the needs of our users and optimize our offerings. The IP address of your computer transmitted for technical reasons is automatically anonymised and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the individual user. You can object to the use of functional and performance cookies at any time by adjusting your cookie settings accordingly.
Legal basis: Art. 6 (1) f DSGVO
Cookies requiring consent (type c)
Marketing cookies originate from external advertising companies (third party cookies) and are used to collect information about the websites visited by the user in order to create target group-oriented advertising for the user.
You may also manage cookies used for online advertising through tools developed in many countries as part of self-regulatory programmes, such as the US-based https://www.aboutads.info/choices/ or the EU-based http://www.youronlinechoices.com/uk/your-ad-choices .
In addition, you can set your Internet browser so that the storage of cookies is generally prevented on your terminal device or you are asked each time whether you agree to the setting of cookies. Once cookies have been set, you can also delete them at any time. How all this works in detail can be found in the help function of your browser.
Use of social media plug-ins
We currently use social media plug-ins to communicate with target groups. By calling up a page, visitor and browser data are transmitted to the respective plug-in provider. We would like to point out that we can only give information on personal data to those affected within our scope. In this context, there is a joint responsibility for the processing of your data in accordance with Art. 26 DSGVO with the BHI and the respective plug-in providers.

This will tell YouTube which pages you are visiting when you are logged into your YouTube account.
The legal basis for the integration of YouTube and the associated data transfer to Google is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO for marketing purposes and thus also for reaching selected target groups.
