"Cookies" are small text files that are stored on the hard drive of the website visitor`s computer. They enable to maintain information over a specific period and to identify the visitor`s computer.

Google Analytics
Meeting the demands of our website, we use pseudomized user profiles by means of Google Analytics. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies" that are text files which are stored on your computer to analyze your usage of this website. The information about your usage of this website generated by the cookie is ordinarily transmitted to and saved on a server in the USA.

Only in exceptional cases, the whole IP address will be first transferred to a Google server in the USA and then being truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing them to other services towards the website operator relating to website activity and internet usage.

1. It is possible to refuse web analysis by Google Analytics by selecting so-called opt-out-cookies, which instruct Google not to store or use your data for the purpose of web analysis.
