This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies” (text files which are stored on your computer and permit an analysis of how you use the website). The information about how you use this website, which is generated by the cookie, is typically transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to analyse how you use the website, to create reports on website activities, and to provide further services related to website and Internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that this may prevent you to use the full features of this website. In addition, you can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie in relation to your usage of the website (including your IP address) as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link.
For further information about how Google uses your data, please visit http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/en.html and http://www.google.com/intl/en/analytics/privacyoverview.html
The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour, both in order to optimise their advertising and to fund the customer-focused usage, adaptation, and updating of the website.
IP anonymisation is activated on this website.
This website uses so-called social plug-ins of the social networking site facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA, (“Facebook”). These can usually be recognised by the “thumbs up” symbol. An overview of the social plug-ins of Facebook is available here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins.
When launching this website, a connection is established between your browser and the Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted directly to your browser by Facebook and embedded in the website. We therefore have no influence on or knowledge of the scope of the data collected by Facebook by means of this plug-in.
By embedding the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that a user has accessed a certain page of their offer. If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can link the visit to your Facebook account. When selecting (clicking on) the plug-ins, the corresponding information is directly transmitted to Facebook by your browser and stored there. Even if you do not have a Facebook account, Facebook may identify and store your IP address. According to Facebook, IP addresses are stored in EU member states in anonymised form only.
For further information about the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of this data by Facebook, and for information about your rights and settings available to you, please visit: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.
Facebook social plug-ins can also be blocked with browser add-ons such as “Facebook Blocker” or the “AdBlock Plus” add-on for Firefox. For further information, please visit https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/facebook-tracking-stop/.
