Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in or by the Internet browser on the user’s computer system. When a user calls up a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a character string that allows the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is reopened. We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. This website therefore uses cookies within the context of the web analytics service Google Analytics and the video portal YouTube. You can disable or restrict the transmission of cookies by changing the settings in your Internet browser. Stored cookies can be deleted at any time. They can also be automatically deleted. If you disable cookies for our website, you may no longer be able to use the full functionality of the website.

Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereafter: “Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your end device, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Due to the activation of the IP anonymisation, Google will truncate/anonymise the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. This truncation eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the corresponding plugin is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is made to the YouTube servers. This tells YouTube which pages you are visiting. When you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

When a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behaviour.

If you have disabled the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, then no such cookies will be used while you are watching YouTube videos either. However, YouTube does store non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you have to block the storage of cookies in the browser.

You can find more information about data protection and “YouTube” in the provider’s privacy policy at:
