What are cookies?

Cookies are packages of data that are exchanged between your browser and the website. They store information over numerous visits to the website, for example to match up baskets and ticket purchases or to log in to the website. They enable identification to be transferred securely to your network. Your browser stores the cookies on your computer. Cookies are unable to operate programmes and are not viruses.

You can specify how cookies should be treated in your browser settings. You may generally decline all cookies or arrange to be notified whenever cookies are used. You can also check in your browser settings which cookies have been stored and what they contain.

Use of Cookies

Our website uses cookies. In order to be able to use all its functions, we recommend that in addition to strictly necessary cookies you also activate further (third party) cookies or to click on the button “Accept all cookies” to ensure you can use our website fully. By doing this, you also confirm that you consent to the use of cookies from third parties of foreign countries outside Europe or non-EEA countries (for example, YouTube and Vimeo from the USA).

If you click on “Accept selected cookies” without selecting third-party cookies, we will apply the default setting of only using strictly necessary cookies. This may result in you being unable to access parts of our website and therefore being unable to use some functions. You can change or cancel your settings at any time.

These cookies ensure that the website is technically stable. Without these, unfortunately you will not be able to use our website or sections of it.

The actual number of cookies used depends on your individual browser settings.

If you do not want to be mapped by your YouTube profile, you need to log out before playing the video.
