Cookie policy

Cookie policy of the Anwaltskanzlei Nieweg

for the websites and

When you use our website (including mobile pages), we and other third parties may collect information through the use of cookies or other technologies (for simplicity’s sake, we refer to all of these technologies as “cookies”).

A list of companies that use cookies and information about how they use them can be found at the end of this policy and in our cookie consent tool.

When you visit our website, you agree that we and third parties may use cookies in accordance with your cookie settings. The cookie opt-in tool allows you to change your preferences at any time. For information on how your personal information is used, please refer to our Privacy Policy.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that contains small amounts of information that is sent to your computer through your web browser so that the website can remember who you are.

The length of time a cookie will remain on your computer will depend on whether it is a persistent cookie or a session cookie. Session cookies are temporary cookies that remain on your computer until you leave the website. Persistent cookies remain on your computer after you have finished surfing until they expire or are deleted.

A pixel tag, or sometimes called a web beacon, is an invisible image with a line of code that is placed in an e-mail message or on a Web page. 

Cookies can be divided into either first or third party cookies. “First Party Cookies” are cookies that Ticketmaster places on your device, while “Third Party Cookies” are cookies that are controlled by another party but placed on your device when you visit our website. For example, we use Google Analytics cookies to collect information about the user experience on our website.

What do we use cookies for?

Cookies can be assigned to one of the following categories: Essential cookies, Analytics cookies, Functionality cookies, and Advertising cookies. The following table provides more information about each category.



essential cookies


These cookies are necessary for the functioning of our website. They allow you to move around the website and use its functions. Necessary services, such as the possibility to access protected areas or use them in another language, as well as the protection of the website and offered forms, cannot be provided without these cookies.


Analytics or statistics cookies


These cookies collect information about how people use our website, e.g. which pages are visited most frequently and how people switch from one link to another. The information collected on our open website is aggregated with information from other people’s use of our website. The information is collected anonymously.

Functionality cookies or external media 

These cookies allow us to store your preferences and customize our website to provide you with enhanced features and content. For example, video platform content is blocked by default. If cookies are accepted by external media, access to this content no longer requires separate manual consent.


advertising cookies


These cookies are used to send you customized marketing and promotional communications based on what you have searched for, purchased, or shown interest in. We use these cookies in conjunction with third-party companies that provide tools that allow us to associate you with other users in a group to target these messages and advertisements. 

This site does not use advertising cookies.


How to manage cookies from this website

In addition to our cookie consent tool, you can manage your cookie settings with most browsers, e.g. have the browser notify you when you receive a new cookie, or use the setting to disable cookies altogether. If you choose to disable or delete cookies altogether, you may experience functional problems.

If you do not want us and third parties to allow the use of cookies in emails, such as pixel tags, the best way to do this is not to activate images when viewing emails. In other words, look at email only in plain text. Some web browsers and email clients have settings or enhancements to disable or block such cookies, such as Gmail.

Changing browser settings

You can change your browser settings so that you can limit the type of cookies that can be used. These settings can usually be found in the “Options” or “Settings” menu of your browser.

Further information can be found here or in the “Help” menu of your browser.

 Customizing the cookie selection via the cookie consent tool

This site uses Borlabs Cookie as a consent tool that sets two technically necessary cookies (borlabsCookie and borlabsCookieUnblockContent) to store your cookie preference.

Borlabs Cookie does not process any personal data.

The borlabsCookie cookie stores your chosen preference, which you selected when you entered the website. 

The borlabsCookieUnblockContent cookie stores which (external) media/content you always want to have automatically unblocked. 

If you wish to revoke these settings, simply delete the cookies in your browser. When you reenter/reload the website, you will be asked again for your cookie preference.

You can change your cookie selection at any time by clicking on the following button.

Special case Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics.

The provider is Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analysis tool are based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise both its website and its advertising.

IP anonymisation

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This will cause Google to shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the United States. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. I

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services to website operators relating to website activity and internet usage.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.

Browser Plugin

Other setting options and advertising tracking

With respect to cookies installed by third parties, users can manage their preferences and the revocation of their consent by clicking on the appropriate opt-out link (if any), using the means provided for in the third party’s privacy policy, or contacting the third party.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Provider informs that Users may follow and benefit from the instructions provided by EDAA (EU), Network Advertising Initiative (US) and Digital Advertising Alliance (US), DAAC (Canada), DDAI (Japan) or similar services. Such services allow users to set their tracking settings for almost all advertising tools. The provider therefore recommends that users use this tool in addition to the information provided in this document.

Selected advertising services comply with the IAB Transparency and Consent Framework and allow the user to customize advertising tracking preferences.

These settings can be retrieved and customized by the user clicking on the cookie policy link within the cookie note banner and then on the link leading to the ad tracking settings.
