We automatically collect and store in our server log files information which has been transferred to us by your browser. This covers:
We are unable to identify specific individuals using this information. We do not consolidate this data with any other sources of data and the data is deleted after we have performed a statistical analysis.
This website uses information collected by “piwik”, an open-source tool that allows us to collect and store data for marketing and optimization purposes (please visit www.piwik.org for details).
Piwik uses "cookies", these are text files that are stored on your computer in order to help us analyze the usage of our homepage. The information cookies generate, including your IP-address, will remain on our own servers and will not be given to any third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so. All information is collected anonymously and there will be no matching or adding of data on top of your IP-address.
Please be advised that, whenever you address specific sites and services that require entry of data, we do not use encryption software, meaning that your entries might be read or falsified by others.
This website uses "cookies" at several points. These serve to make our website more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer and saved on your browser. Most of the cookies we use are "session cookies", which are automatically deleted at the end of your visit. Cookies do not damage your computer nor do they contain viruses.
In order to design our website as required, we create pseudonymous user profiles using Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", ie text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.However, as we have activated IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and only then shortened. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website for us, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services related to website activity and internet usage.
You can contradict the creation of the pseudonymous user profiles at any time. There are several ways to do this:
1.) One way to object to web analytics through Google Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie that instructs Google not to store or use your information for web analytics purposes. Please note that with this solution, the web analysis will only be made as long as the opt-out cookie is saved by the browser. If you want to set the opt-out cookie now, please click here.
2.) You can prevent the storage of the cookies used for the profile formation by a corresponding setting of your browser software.
3.) Depending on the browser you are using, you have the option of installing a browser plug-in that prevents tracking. To do this, please click here and install the browser plug-in available there.
