In order to constantly improve and optimize our offer we make use of so-called tracking technologies. To this end we make use of the services of Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics makes use of "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis to be made of our offer by Google. The information recorded by the cookies on the use made of our websites (including your IP address) is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We draw your attention to the fact that on our websites Google Analytics were extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure an anonymized record of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). At our request, your IP address is therefore recorded by Google solely in shortened form, which ensures anonymization and allows no inferences to be made to your identity. In the event that the IP-anonymize function is activated on this website, your IP address will previously be shortened by Google within the member countries of the European Union or in other contracting states that were party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Google will make use of the said information to evaluate your use of our websites, to prepare reports on the website activities for us and to provide us with further website-related and Internet-related services. The IP address transferred from your browser by Google Analytics is not brought together by Google with other data collected. Any transfer of this data to a third party by Google is made solely on the basis of statutory regulations or within the framework of order data processing. On no account will Google bring your data together with other data recorded by Google.
By using these websites you declare that you consent to the processing of the data collected on you by Google and the previously described manner of data processing, as well as the described purpose.
You can prevent the storage of the cookies by adjusting your browser-software settings appropriately. In this case, however, we draw your attention to the fact that you may not then be fully able to use all of the functions of these websites. You can also prevent the acquisition by Google of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) as well as its processing by Google in that you download and install the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
