During your visit to our website, “cookies”can be stored on your hard disk. A cookie is a text file that is placed on your computer by the server of a website in the browser of your computer or mobile device when you consult a website. Cookies cannot be used to identify a person; a cookie can only identify a machine.

You can set up your browser so that it does not accept cookies, and you will be notified whenever a cookie is installed, or cookies will be removed of your hard disk afterwards. You can do this by accessing the settings of your browser (through the help-function). Please take into account that some graphic elements will not be displayed properly, or some applications will not be able to be used.

By using our website, you agree our use of cookies.


Google analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies” (text files placed on your computer) to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including Your IP address) is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google uses this information to keep track of how you use the website, to generate reports on website activity for website operators and to offer other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or if these third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not combine your IP address with other data held by Google. You can refuse the use of cookies by choosing the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in that case you may not be able to use all the features of this website. By using this website you consent to the processing of the information by Google in the manner and for the purposes described above. When you, as a user, have permitted Google to link your web and app history to your Google Account and use information from your Google Account to personalize ads, Google will use data from you as a signed-in user together with Google Analytics data from this website to compile audience lists for remarketing via different devices. Two things happen to support this function. First, Google Analytics collects Google’s authenticated user IDs on this site that are linked to their Google Account. Secondly, Google Analytics temporarily adds this ID to Google Analytics data to support target groups. As always, Google users can manage the advertising functionality (or opt out completely for personalized ads) via My Account (http://myaccount.google.com/).
