This information has the form of a "cookie" or similar file format and helps us to adapt our website to your individual needs. Cookies make it possible to identify a computer, but not to relate to a person. If you want to prevent cookies from being stored on your local hard disk, please use the functions of your Internet browser to refuse cookies, delete or to provide a warning before a cookie is installed.


Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymization, Google will truncate and anonymize the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address is sent to and shortened by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider.


Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. Furthermore you can prevent Google’s collection and use of data (cookies and IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.


Common use of social networks and plugins

When you are visiting our website, it is possible to visit social network sites through so-called plugins. These plugins are interfaces provided by the operators of social networks (e.g. Facebook, Twitter and others) in order to connect to their sites. They are usually marked with the logo of the corresponding social network or with other appropriate means. One such plugin is for example the famous "Like" button of Facebook.

If you decide to visit a social network (e.g. the pages of Facebook or Twitter) through our website and to interact with such a plugin (e.g. by pressing the Facebook "Like" button), please note that your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of the respective social network. Through the plugin the appropriate information is integrated on the pages of the social network. Through this integration, Facebook for example receives the information that you have visited the corresponding page through a plugin and in particular your IP address and possibly other device-related information. Under certain circumstances, the relevant social network can also store a cookie on your device that is deleted when the browser is closed. You can decide yourself in the browser settings whether or not cookies are allowed (see above - the section on "cookies").

If you are logged on to a social network (e.g. Facebook or Twitter) at the same time, the respective social network can map your visit to your local account at the respective social network. For information on the purpose and scope of data collection and further processing, use of data by the relevant social network and your rights and ways to protect your privacy in this respect, please see the privacy policy of the respective social network. Under the following links you will find the privacy policy of Facebook and Twitter: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php and http://twitter.com/privacy


Use of Facebook social plugins in detail

Our website uses social plugins ("plugins") of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States ("Facebook"). The plugins can be recognized by one of the Facebook logos (white "f" on a blue tile or a "thumbs up" sign) or by the addition of "Facebook Social Plugin". A list and the appearance of Facebook social plugins can be found here: http://developers.facebook.com/plugins

If you enter a page on our website, which contains such a plugin, your browser will establish a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin will directly be transmitted to your browser by Facebook and then be integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the type of data displayed and the scope of data that Facebook collects through the respective plugin. In the following we inform you accordingly of our knowledge:

By integrating the plugins on our website, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to your Facebook account. When you interact with plugins, for example, pressing the "Like" button or make a comment, the corresponding information is sent directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook receives and stores your IP address.

For information on purpose and scope of data collection and further processing and use of data by Facebook, and your rights and ways to protect your privacy in this respect, please refer to the privacy policies of Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php

If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect information about you through our website and to link this information to your data stored on Facebook, you have to log out of Facebook before visiting our website. It is also possible to block Facebook social-plugins with add-ons for your browser, for example, the "Facebook Blocker".
