Cookie Policy

We use the term "cookies" to refer to cookies and other similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications.


What is a cookie?

Cookies are small files that are stored on your computer or internet-enabled device through your browser. The cookie allows the website to "remember" your actions or preferences over time.

Most Internet browsers support cookies; however, users can set their browsers to reject certain types of cookies or certain cookies. In addition, users can delete cookies at any time.

Why do we use cookies?

We use cookies to learn more about the ways in which you interact with our content and to enable us to improve your experience when visiting our website(s). Cookies remember, for example, your language or preferences, which remain as default settings on a subsequent visit to one of our websites. In addition, cookies allow us to offer you certain content, such as videos on our website(s).


Third-party cookies

We use both first-party and third-party cookies on our website.

First-party cookies are cookies issued by the domain, which are generally used to determine language and location preferences or for basic page functionality.

Third-party cookies are owned and operated by other parties, such as business partners or service providers of Next Kraftwerke. These cookies may be required to submit certain forms, such as applications.


Session cookies

Session cookies are temporary cookies that are used during the course of your visit to the website to remember you and end when you close the web browser.


Permanent cookies

Persistent cookies are used to remember your preferences on the website and remain on your desktop or internet-enabled device even after you close your browser or restart your computer. We use these cookies to analyze user behavior to determine visit patterns so that we can improve our website functionality for you and others who visit our website(s). These cookies also allow us to deliver targeted advertising to you and measure the effectiveness of our site functionality and advertising.


How are cookies used for advertising purposes?

Cookies and ad technology like web beacons, pixels, and anonymous ad network tags help us deliver relevant ads to you more effectively. They also help us collect aggregate audit data, research, and performance reporting for advertisers. Pixels allow us to understand and improve the delivery of ads to you and to know when you were served certain ads. Because your web browser can request ads and web beacons directly from ad network servers, these networks can view, edit, or deploy their own cookies as if you had requested a web page from their website.

Although we profile your browsing behavior on third-party websites, we use aggregate data from third parties to display relevant, interest-based advertising to you. We do not share any personal information we collect with advertisers. By adjusting your cookie settings, you can opt-out of off-site ("off-site") and third-party informed advertising. By opting out, the ads will not be removed from the pages you visit, but you will instead find ads that are not targeted to your interests. This means that the ad(s) you see will not be matched to your interests through these specific cookies.

How are third-party cookies used?

For some of the features within our websites, we use third party providers, for example, when you visit a page with videos embedded in or linked to YouTube. These videos or links (and other third-party content) may contain third-party cookies, and it is recommended that you read the privacy statements of these third-party websites for information about their use of cookies.


How can I refuse and delete cookies?

You can choose to reject or block all or certain types of cookies set by your visit by clicking on the cookie settings on our website(s). You can change your preferences for Next Kraftwerke websites and/or third-party websites by changing your browser settings. Please note that most browsers automatically accept cookies. If you do not want cookies to be used, you may have to actively delete or block cookies. After rejecting the use of cookies, you will be able to visit our websites, but some features may not function properly. You can also find more details about deleting and rejecting cookies and general information about cookies at By using our website without deleting or rejecting some or all cookies, you agree that we may place those cookies that you have not deleted or rejected on your device.
