Cookies are small files that are stored on your computing device and that contain information connected to the use of the web offer. This website uses session cookies that are only valid for the current session and are deleted after logging out or closing of the browser. If you deactivate the setting of cookies in your browser, only very limited use of this offer is possible since no registration can be performed in this case.
This website uses the Piwik tool to create statistical assessments about visits to the individual pages. The purpose is to optimize the offer by means of these assessments. However, the last two positions of your IP address are deleted so that no personal reference is possible. Piwik uses so-called First Party Cookies for assessment; this means that cookies are set for the
web address of the Candidate Exchange, because Piwik is executed completely locally. No data transmissions are performed. In addition, the searches of the partner companies are statistically assessed. This is so that tips for the candidates can be derived to optimize their profiles. All of the assessments are exclusively performed on the servers of the DHBW Heidenheim; no data are transmitted to external servers.
