Cookie Policy

1. Cookies

We use cookies on our site. These are small files that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone or such) when you visit our site. In the cookie, information is stored that arises in each case in connection with the specific end device used.

a) necessary cookies

On the one hand, we use so-called necessary cookies. These are used to make the user experience more efficient. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are usually deleted when the browser is closed (depending on the cookie setting of the browser). In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimize usability, which are stored on your end device for a certain specified period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been on our site and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again. Necessary cookies are also set when Cloudflare is used on our website. More information about Cloudflare under point 3.
The use of necessary cookies is required to protect our legitimate interests and is legally permissible.

b) non-necessary cookies

Non necessary cookies are those that are not technically mandatory. This also includes the use of analysis tools, see point 2. The use of non-essential cookies is based on your consent.

2. Matomo

For statistical analysis, Prognos uses "Matomo" (formerly "PIWIK") , an open source tool for web analysis, on this website. We would like to use it to further improve the website and adapt it even more to the needs of the users.
With Matomo, no data is transmitted to servers that are outside the control of Prognos. Matomo is deactivated when you visit our website. Only if you actively consent, your usage behavior will be recorded anonymously. Matomo uses so-called cookies. Your IP address is immediately anonymized; thus you remain anonymous as a user. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is not passed on to third parties.

Prognos understands this analysis as part of its Internet service.

3. Cloudflare

This website uses services from "Cloudflare" (provider: Cloudflare, Inc., 101 Townsend St, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA). Cloudflare operates a content delivery network (CDN) and provides protective functions for the website (web application firewall). The data transfer between your browser and our servers flows through Cloudflare's infrastructure and is analyzed there to prevent attacks. Cloudflare uses cookies for this purpose to enable you to access our website. The use of Cloudflare is in the interest of a secure use of our Internet presence and the defense of harmful attacks from the outside. For more information, please see Cloudflare's privacy policy:

Cloudflare cookies are necessary cookies.
