In addition, we also use cookies that remain with you on the hard drive. When visiting us again, it is then automatically detected that you had already visited us and which entries and settings you prefer. These temporary or also persistent cookies (life span of 1 month up to 10 years) will be stored on your hard drive and delete themselves after the specified time. These cookies, in particular, help make our content more user friendly, effective and safe.

The information about the use of our websites (including your IP address) collected by the cookie, will normally be transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. We would like to point out that on our websites, the code «gat._anonymizeIp();;» was added to Google Analytics to ensure the anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

In case of activation of the IP anonymisation on our websites, Google will shorten your IP address within European Union Member States or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there. Google will use the specified information to analyse your use of our websites, to generate reports for us about the website activities and provide us with other services associated with the use of websites and the internet. The IP address transmitted in the context of Google Analytics from your browser will not be linked with other data of Google. A transmission of these data by Google to third parties will only take place due to statutory regulations or within the scope of contract data processing. Under no circumstances will Google pool your data with other data collected by Google. By using these websites, you agree to the processing of the data collected about you by Google and the afore-mentioned way the data is processed as well as the specified purpose. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the setting of your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case, if applicable, you may not be able to use all functions of our websites to the full extent. In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and associated with your use of these websites (incl. your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available from the link below.
