5. Cookies

This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below: 

Transiente Cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These include in particular the session cookies. They store a so-called session ID, with which various requests from your browser can be assigned to the joint session. This allows your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. The session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.

Persistent Cookies are automatically deleted after a specific period of time which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete the cookies in the safety settings of your browser at any time.

You can configure the browser settings according to your wishes and refuse to accept, for example, third party cookies or all cookies. So-called third party cookies are cookies set by a third party, therefore, not by the website you are currently visiting. We would like to point out that by deactivating cookies, you may not be able to use all functions of this website.

6. Web-Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics. This is a service for the analysis of Internet pages provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, U.S.A. By using this analysis service, cookies are also stored on your computer.

The information generated, including the IP address of visitors, is transmitted to a server in the U.S. and stored there. For data protection reasons, our website uses the function “_anonymizeIP()”, so that the transmitted IP addresses can only be processed in abbreviated form and a direct personal reference can be excluded. 

Google will transmit this data to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process the data on behalf of Google. More information about Google Analytics can be found at https://www.google.com/intl/de_at/analytics.

We use the functions of Google Analytics to analyze the use of our website, e.g. in form of anonymized evaluations and graphics on PageViews and Visits, as well as for remarketing, Google Display Network impressions reports, DoubleClick Campaign Manager integration, and Google Analytics performance reports by demographics and interests. The use of Google Analytics is therefore carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest.

Google is a participant in the EU-US Privacy Shield, which obliges the company to comply with the agreement and to permanently maintain a level of data protection in accordance with European data protection standards. Google’s Privacy Shield certification can be viewed at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active.

You have the option to prevent the aforementioned cookies from being stored on your computer, and thus exercise your right to object. To do this, you have to make a corresponding setting on your Internet browser. However, there is the possibility that our website can only be used to a limited extent. You can prevent the collection, sending, and processing of your data and your IP address by Google. To do this, you have to download and install a plugin for your Internet browser.
