However, some of these cookies provide information that allows you to be recognised automatically. This recognition is based on the IP address saved on the cookies. The information obtained in this manner serves to optimise our services and to provide you with easier access to our website.
You can prevent the installation of cookies with the corresponding browser settings. However, this may mean that you cannot fully use all functions of our website.
For technical reasons, the following data (and others) that your Internet browser transmits to us or our webspace provider are recorded (the so-called server log files):
- Browser type and version
- Operating system used
- Website from which you visited us (referrer URL)
- Website you are visiting
- Date and time of your access
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address.
These anonymous data are separated from any personal data you may provide and therefore do not allow any conclusions regarding the identity of a specific person. They are used for statistical purposes in order to optimise our website and our services.

USE OF GOOGLE ANALYTICS WITH ANONYMISATION FUNCTION
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how you use it.
The information generated by the cookie, e.g. the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
On our website, we use Google Analytics with an IP anonymisation function. In this case, your IP address will already be truncated by Google within the area of Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. As a result, it will be anonymised.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of our website, compiling reports on website activity for us and for providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transmit this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or if such third parties process the information on Google's behalf.
Google, according to its own account, will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies with the corresponding browser software settings. However, we note that this may mean that you cannot fully use all functions of our website.
In addition, Google offers a deactivation option for most standard browsers, which gives you more control over which data Google records and processes. If you activate this option, no information regarding your website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, this activation does not prevent that information is transmitted to us or other web analysis services that we use. You can find additional information on the deactivation option that Google makes available, as well as on the activation of this option, by clicking on this link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptou
