Use of cookies

Our website uses cookies. “Cookies” are short textual pieces of data stored on your computer. They facilitate the use of websites. Use of cookies always presents a risk that your surfing behavior within the Internet content being visited will be collected, and user profiles created. Nevertheless, we also use “cookies” on our website, as these make using the website easier and, otherwise, certain functions of the website can not be performed. After closing the browser, most of the cookies we use will be erased from your hard drive (“session cookies”). So-called “persistent cookies”, however, remain on your computer and enable us to recognize you on your next visit.

However, you still have the option to prevent the storage of cookies on your own computer by changing the corresponding settings in your browser program. However, this may lead to limited functionality of our website.


Use of Google Analytics for web analysis

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”), on our website. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and allow your use of our website to be analyzed.
