Persistent cookies

Persistent cookies are stored on your device to help us recognise you when you next visit our website. They help us remember your preferences, settings and credentials so that you do not have to enter them every time you visit our site.

Tracking cookies

Our own tracking cookies: With your consent, we place a cookie on your device that can be retrieved when you visit a website in our network. This cookie tells us that you have visited other websites in our network in addition to our own. The profile generated in this way is not linked to your name, address, email address or any other personal data; it is only used to personalise advertisements to make them relevant for you.

Google Analytics

Our website also uses cookies from the US company Google as part of its Analytics service. This service tracks and reports on how visitors use our website. Google may share this information with third parties if required to do so by law, or if a third party processes this information on Google’s behalf. This is beyond our control. We have not consented to Google using the information it obtains through its Analytics services for other Google services.

The information Google collects is anonymised as far as possible. Your IP address is explicitly not reported. The information is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google claims that it abides by the Privacy Shield principles and is affiliated to the Privacy Shield programme of the US Department of Commerce. This implies an adequate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.
