In order to make our web site attractive to use and to enable certain functions, we use so-called „Cookies“ on some pages. They are small text files which are stored on your computer.

The so-called permanent cookies however will remain on your computer and enable us to recognise you next time you visit our web site. Our business partners have no permission to collect personal data through cookies, to process them or to use them. You may reject cookies by changing you browser settings accordingly, which might however affect the functionality of our web site.

Web tracking software

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics uses „Cookies“. The information generated by the cookie, which is about how you use our website and includes your IP address, will be sent to a Google server in the US and saved there. Google will use this information, in order to find out about how you use this website, to compile reports for the owner of the web site about the activities on the web site and to deliver other services related to the use of the website and the internet. Google may also send this data to third parties, as far as this is legally required or if third parties are processing the data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google link your IP address to other data at Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by the settings in your browser software. By using this website, you are agreeing to the processing of your personal data by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above.

Using the Link tools.google.com you can object to the collection and storage of data with effect for the future at any time.

In view of the discussion about the use of tracking software with complete IP addresses we would like to stress that this web site uses Google Analytics with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“ and therefore only processes shortened IP addresses in order to prevent IP addresses being attributed directly to users.
