Data Protection Statement
As we want to protect your privacy, we make sure that your personal details are handled securely and confidentially. We are notifying you about our data protection regulations, so that you know exactly what data we collect and forward where required.
Website tracking and cookies
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files, which are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse use of the website through your computer. The information produced by the cookie concerning your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to Google servers in the United States and stored there. Google uses this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports concerning the website activities for the website operators, and to render additional services linked with the use of the website and the Internet. However, we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. This causes all IP addresses to be stored in abbreviated form which thus rules out direct personal reference in connection with the stored data. Google transfers this information to third parties as applicable, insofar as this is required by law or third parties are to process this data for Google. You can prevent storage of data by setting your browser software so that cookies cannot be installed; however we draw your attention to the fact that in this case you might not be able to use all the functions of this website.
You can also prevent collection of data by installing the deactivation add-on for browsers of Google Analytics at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
