What is a "cookie"?
A "cookie" is a sequence of text characters that we transmit to the browser's cookie file on your computer's hard drive via our web server. This enables our website to recognise you when a connection is made between our web server and your browser. The main purpose of a cookie is to recognise visitors to the website so that our web server can present you with a more personalised and responsive website.
Two types of cookies are used on this website:
Session cookies: These are temporary cookies that remain in your browser's cookie file until you leave our website. These cookies are necessary for certain applications or functions of the website to run properly.
Persistent cookies: We may use persistent cookies for a better user experience (e.g. to provide optimal navigation). These are cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser for a longer period of time. This period depends on the settings of your Internet browser. Persistent cookies allow information to be sent to a web server each time you visit the website. Persistent cookies are also known as tracking cookies.
If you want to learn more about cookies, there are many publications available on this topic. See for example: https://www.allaboutcookies.org
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.
The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, by activating IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states 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 USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Facebook Remarketing / Retargeting
With your consent, we use the "Visitor Action Pixel" of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") within our website. With its help, we can track the actions of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This allows us to track the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, which means that we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, which we will inform you of according to our level of knowledge. Facebook may link this data to your Facebook account and also use it for its own advertising purposes, in accordance with Facebook's data usage policy https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You may allow Facebook and its partners to serve ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.
When you call up an individual page, web servers record the name of the file called up, the date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred, any error messages and, if applicable, the operating system and browser software of your computer as well as the website from which you are visiting us in a log file by default. The log file data is used by us for the purposes stated under "Use of Google Analytics" and to ensure system security and protection against misuse (e.g. detection and defense against hacker attacks).
