The use of "absolutely necessary" cookies alone does not require the consent of the user. Although there are no fixed criteria for such requirements, it can be assumed that they include, for example, shopping basket cookies, login status or language selection options.
Important: Although the decision only refers to cookies. However, it includes all measures with which data can be stored or read out on users' devices.
Currently, appropriate consent is being obtained with so-called "cookie banners" or as part of a registration. Consent must now be given in a necessary and explicit manner. According to the European Court of Justice, so-called opt-out solutions are not permitted, whereby cookies are activated as soon as the user enters a website, unless the user deactivates them.

Supplementary note (29.11.2019)
Tightening of data protection regulations: Please adapt cookie confirmation!
The European Court of Justice has ruled that, as of 1 October 2019, consent to a cookie confirmation (or a single button to click on) that has already been marked with a check mark in advance is no longer permitted. Such an uncomplicated and less complex standard solution can also be found to date on websites that we have designed or helped to design. Until the time of the Luxembourg decision, this was common practice - we ourselves also used such a solution on our own website. Due to the new regulations, we would ask you to adapt this.
