3. Use of cookies

The website, the email traffic, the online services, the advertising and the interactive applications may use “cookies” in order to optimise our services.
What is a “cookie”?
A “cookie” is a string of text characters that we transfer to the browser’s cookie file via our web server to the hard disk of your computer. This allows our website to recognise you when a connection is established between our web server and your browser. The principal purpose of a cookie is the recognition of visitors to the website, so that our web server can present you with a more customised website tailored to your needs.
Two types of cookies are used on this site:
• Session cookies: These are temporary cookies which remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave our website. These cookies are necessary for certain applications or functions of the website to perform properly.
• Persistent cookies: We may use persistent cookies in order to improve usability (for example, to provide optimal navigation). These are cookies which remain in your browser’s cookie file for an extended period of time. This period depends on your Internet browser settings. Persistent cookies allow the transfer of information to a web server each time you visit the website. Permanent cookies are also known as tracking cookies.
If you wish to learn more about cookies, many publications are available on this topic. See for example: http://www.allaboutcookies.org

 

4. Third Party cookies

We may use external advertising agencies for the execution of advertising measures and for the optimisation of advertising measures. External advertising agencies use cookies to measure the effectiveness of advertising and the personalisation of advertising content. This information collected by external advertising agencies may contain data such as location (derived from the IP address), or contact details such as email addresses.

 

5. Web beacons and pixel tags

Our website contains web beacons (also known as “pixel tags”). A web beacon is often an invisible electronic image, typically no larger than 1 pixel x 1 pixel, placed on a website or in an email that observes the online behaviour of visitors to the site or when emails are sent. Web beacons are provided by third parties in order to receive information about the activity of the visitors to our website. This makes it possible to determine from which computer, when and from which location (country or city) a particular website is visited.

 

6. Tracking and analysis

We use analysis software in order to optimise our advertising measures. This software allows the observation of online behavior in terms of time, location, and the use of this website. This information is collected via web beacons and/or cookies. The information obtained from the web beacons and/or cookies is anonymous and is not linked to personal data. This information shall not be shared with third parties for independent use.

9. Interaction with social networks

Facebook
This website does not use the original social plugins (“plugin”) of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd., 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland (“Facebook”), but a modified form of such.We have modified the plugins on this website so that a transfer of personal data to Facebook takes place only after clicking the Share button.When you press the Share button, the plugin is activated and your browser connects directly to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transmitted directly from Facebook to the browser and integrated into the website. We therefore have no influence on the volume of the data that Facebook collects with the help of this plugin, and would therefore like to inform you of our current knowledge:

By clicking on the Share button, Facebook will be informed that you have accessed the corresponding page of our website. If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can relate your visit to your Facebook account. When you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the Share button, the corresponding information will be sent directly to Facebook by your browser and stored there. If you are not a member of Facebook, it is also possible that Facebook will find and store your IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymous IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and extent of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook after clicking on the Share button, as well as your rights and settings for the protection of your privacy, can be found in Facebook’s Privacy Policy: https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

Twitter
Our website contains features of Twitter Inc., 795 Folsom Street, Suite 600, San Francisco, CA 94107, USA. If you are using Twitter and, in particular, the “re-tweet” feature, Twitter links your Twitter account to the pages you visit. This is announced to other users at Twitter, especially your followers. In this way data transmission also takes place on Twitter.
As a provider of our website, we are not informed by Twitter about the content of the transferred data or about the use of data. You can find further information at the following link: http://twitter.com/privacy

Please note, however, that you can change your privacy settings on Twitter in your account settings at http://twitter.com/account/settings
