Information about Google Analytics service
The Website uses the Google Analytics service for statistical audience measuring, e.g. to estimate the number of unique visitors, to detect the most preeminent search engine keywords that lead to our Website webpage or to track down website navigation issues.
The Website utilises the “Anonymise IP” function, which is offered by Google as part of the Analytics service. With this specific function, access to your IP address is restricted to Google and it is anonymised while you are accessing our Website.
You have the option to entirely block the collection of your data by Google Analytics, by installing a plug-in on your preferred browser:
These cookies are used to track your behavior across websites and deliver adverts more relevant to you and your interests. They are also used to limit the number of times you see an advertisement as well as help measure the effectiveness of the advertising campaign. They remember that you have visited our Website and this information is shared with other organisations such as advertisers.
|IDE||doubleclick.net||1 year||This cookie is used by Google DoubleClick to register and report the Website user’s actions after viewing or clicking one of the advertiser’s ads with the purpose of measuring the efficacy of an ad and to present targeted ads to the user.|
|NID||6 months||This cookie registers a unique ID that identifies a returning user’s device. The ID is used for targeted ads.|
|test_cookie||doubleclick.net||1 day||This cookie is used to check if the user’s browser supports cookies.|
If you wish, you can generally prevent the storage of cookies that are necessary for this process through the settings of your browser. You can also select the types of Google ads that appear to you and turn off ads that appear based on your interests through the ad settings.
Due to the architecture of the World Wide Web, when you visit our Website, our server immediately records your IP address in special log files.

In addition, our log files also help us to record the type of browser and operating system you are using, as well as other information concerning your visit, such as the URL address from which you reached our page, the date and time of your visit.
This data is stored exclusively for the amount of time necessary to protect the security of our network, information and services from accidental events or illegal or malicious acts that compromise the availability, integrity and confidentiality of stored or transmitted personal data (e.g. avoiding “Denial of Service” (DoS) attacks).
You are able to adjust the installation of cookies at any time through the settings of the browser you use.
