This information helps us to optimise our service and enhance your experience when browsing our web pages. In some cases cookies are also used to provide you with targeted information about our products on the websites of other providers. To this end we also work with external service providers, who may extract information from the cookies exclusively for such purposes.

The information obtained from the cookies will not be used in any other way.

Cookies are completely harmless, and technically it is not possible to extract personal information from your PC via the cookies.

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web-based analytical service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, text files which are saved to your computer and enable the traffic on a website to be analysed. The information about your use of the website generated by the cookie will, as a rule, be transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. If IP anonymisation is activated on this website, however, your IP address will first be shortened by Google in the member states of the European Union or in other nations belonging 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 then be shortened. As appointed by the operator of this website, Google shall use this information to analyse how you use the website, to compile reports about website traffic and to provide further services to the website operator in relation to the utilisation of the website and the Internet. The IP address disclosed by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be included in other data by Google. You can prevent Cookies from being stored by selecting an appropriate setting in your browser software; please note, however, that by choosing such a setting not all functions of this website may necessarily be usable to their full extent. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie concerning your use of the website (including your IP address) from being captured and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link.

In the light of the discussion about the use of analytical tools with full IP addresses, we would like to inform you that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizelp()”, meaning that only shortened forms of the IP addresses are processed so as to rule out any direct personal traceability.
