  1. What is a cookie?

Cookies are text files containing small amounts of information that are downloaded to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. After that, cookies are sent back to the originating website on each subsequent visit, or to another website that recognizes that cookie.

Cookies are important because they allow a website to recognize a user’s device (for example, to remain logged in) and to perform many functions. Some cookies are persistent, which means that they last beyond the current session, while the others are used for a single visit – session cookies.

We use different types of cookies to collect information about Website usage and the general user experience. Although each cookie differentiates you from other users, the purpose of collecting information through cookies is not to identify you as an individual, but to improve the performance and the user-friendliness of the Website.

Google Analytics uses cookies, as described in the table above. The information about your use of our Website generated by the Google Analytics cookies is normally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google might disclose these personal data collected via the technical procedure to third parties.

We have activated IP anonymization, which means that Google shortens the IP addresses of our visitors within the Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are parties to the European Marketing Area Treaty. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google uses this information to analyze your use of the Website in order to compile a report about your Website activities and provide us with other services associated with the Website and Service.

If you wish to find out more about how Google uses information collected via this Website and the Service, please see here.
