This Website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer, to help analyse how users use the Website. Cookies help us to identify account holders and to optimise their Website experience. No personal data, such as name or address, is collected or stored as part of this process. Some of the cookies used by us will be deleted at the end of your browser session, i.e. when you close your browser (these are called session cookies). Other cookies will remain on your terminal device and will allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our Website (these are called persistent cookies).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this Website (including your IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. At our instigation, your IP address will be recorded by Google in shortened form only, which guarantees anonymisation and permits no conclusions to be made about your personal identity. If IP anonymity is activated on this Website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.

On behalf of the provider, Google may use this information to evaluate your use of the Website, compiling reports on Website activity and providing the provider with other services relating to Website and Internet use. Moreover, Google may transfer this information to third parties insofar as this is legally required or if third parties process this information on behalf of Google.
