Our website uses so-called cookies. These are small text files that the browser stores on your device. They do not cause any harm.

We use cookies to make our website user-friendly. Some cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. They enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit us.

Google Analytics

Provided that you have given your consent, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (hereinafter "Google"), on this website.

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” – text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your usage of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (such as your IP address, device and browser, time, place and duration of your visit to the website, pages visited on the website) is generally transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there.

However, since IP anonymization is active on our website, Google will first reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Please note that personal data is subject to a lower level of protection in the United States than in Europe.

On our behalf, Google uses this information for the purposes of evaluating use of the website, in order to collate reports on web activities for the website operators, and to provide additional services connected with the use of the website and the Internet.

The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The data is retained by Google for 38 months and then automatically deleted.
