COOKIES AND GOOGLE ANALYTICS
Cookies are text files placed on your device to help analyze how users use a website. After the browser session, most of the cookies we use are deleted from your hard disk (“session cookies”). Other cookies remain on your computer (“permanent cookies”) and permit its recognition on your next visit to our website. This allows us to improve your access to our website. You can prevent the storage of permanent cookies by choosing a “disable cookies” option in your browser settings.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (Google). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files stored on your computer, to enable analysis of website usage by you. Information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. In case of activated IP anonymization on this website, however, your IP address is previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our website, compile reports about website activities, and provide us with further services related to website and Internet usage. The IP address sent from your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google. You can prevent storage of cookies by appropriately setting your browser software; in this case, however, please note that you might not be able to fully use all functions offered by this website. In addition, you can prevent data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google, by downloading and installing a browser plug-in from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIP()”, IP addresses being truncated before further processing in order to rule out direct associations to persons.

YOUR RIGHTS
We delete your personal data when all processing purposes have been fulfilled. When we are obliged by statutory provisions to retain your personal data, we will delete it after the end of the applicable retention period. You have the right to request access to the data we hold about you, including the right to request correction of incorrect personal data, its restriction and deletion. Furthermore, if you believe that your rights granted by applicable data protection laws have been infringed, you may lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority.

We keep this Privacy Notice under regular review and may change it at any time. Your continued use of this website is deemed as your acceptance with any such changes. Changes to this Privacy Notice will be communicated appropriately.
