This website uses cookies (small files that can be downloaded to a PC or other device when the user accesses certain websites). A cookie allows a website to “recognise” a user’s device and makes it easier to navigate the site by removing the need to re-enter data. On the website, cookies are used to track how long you stay on the site, which pages you visit, and which country you are accessing the site from. Session (temporary) cookies are to detect whether you are using a mobile device to access the site. We do not use cookies to retain personal data.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. („Google“). Google Analytics uses the aforementioned cookies, text files saved on your computer that allow analysis of your use of the website. The website usage information generated by the cookie will normally be transferred to a Google server in the United States and saved there. Due to our use of IP anonymization, your IP adress will be shortened before use, inside states that are members of the European Union or the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted into the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information in order to chart your use of our website, compile reports of website activity and perform other services directly related to website usage for us. The IP address transmitted by your browser will not be integrated with other data Google holds. You may prohibit the retention of cookies by changing the settings of your browsing software; please note, however, that in this case you might not get to use the full range of services of our website.

Google Analytics Opt Out

This will place a so-called opt out cookie on your devices, which stops Google Analytics from collecting your website usage data.

More detailed information on the functionality of Google Analytics and the terms and conditions of that service are available at and Please note that our website uses Google Analytics with the anonymizeIP extension, which causes IP adresses to only be processed in a shortened form in order to disallow any individual tracking.

All reasonable physical and technical measures will be taken to ensure the security of the data at all points in this process.
