Disclosure of personal data to third parties
This website uses the following types of cookies, and the scope and function of these cookies are explained below:
– Transient cookies (see a)
– Persistent cookies (see b).
a) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. They include, in particular, session cookies. Session cookies store a session identifier that can be used to assign various inquiries from your browser during the shared session. This allows your computer to be recognized when it returns to the website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
b) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified time period, which can vary depending on the cookie. You can delete these cookies in the security settings of your browser at any time.
You can configure your browser setting based on your preferences and refuse to accept third-party cookies or all cookies, for example, but please be aware that you might not be able to use all the functions of this website.
The flash cookies in use here are not captured in your browser, but rather in your flash plug-in. We also use HTML5 storage objects, which are stored on your device. These storage objects store the required data regardless of your browser and do not have an automatic expiration date. If you do not want flash cookie processing, you must install the appropriate add-on, such as "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/en/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or Adobe Flash Killer Cookie for Google Chrome. The use of HTML5 storage objects may prevent you from turning on privacy mode in your browser. We also recommend that you regularly delete your cookies and browser history manually.
We only use Google Analytics with activated IP anonymization, so your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting countries that are a party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Your full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and will only be truncated there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address that is transmitted by your browser for Google Analytics purposes will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by activating the corresponding setting in your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. You may also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the available browser plug-in http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
