Privacy & Cookies

As an important part of improving our website, we observe the user patterns of our visitors. To analyse the information, we use Google Analytics.

Google Analytics uses cookies (small text files stored on the user’s computer). They register the user’s IP address and stores information about their actions or interactions online. That information can tell us how many users visit specific pages, how long their stay lasts, which websites our visitors come from and what kind of browsers are being used.

None of the information collected by Google Analytics is stored on Google’s servers in the US. All information received is subject to Google’s Privacy Policy.

An IP address is defined as personal information as it is trackable to its specific hardware and therefore a person. We use Google Analytics’ tracking code, which anonymises the IP address before the information is stored and processed by Google. For that reason the stored IP address can not be used to identify the individual user.
