1.1               In the interest of giving our Site an attractive appearance and in order to allow the use of certain functions, we use cookies on various pages of our Site, as well as other files and tags (e.g. JavaScript tags). Cookies consist of small text files that are stored on your device.

1.2               Most of these cookies used by us will be erased from your hard drive immediately after your browser session (so-called session cookies).

1.3               Other cookies remain saved to your device’s hard drive and enable us to recognize your device in the event of a later visit to our website (so-called persistent cookies). It is particularly these cookies that allow us to make our Site more user-friendly, effective and safe.

Analysis Tools and Internet Technologies

Google Analytics    

1.11           This Site uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”)and other SDK’s of this nature. Google Analytics makes use of cookies. In principle, the information about your use of our website as displayed by the cookie is transferred to and stored on the Google server in the US. We activate a so-called IP anonymization on this website, which means that Google shortens the IP addresses from within EU Member States or from other EEA treaty states before they are exported to the US server. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to the US Google server before it is shortened in the US.

1.12           As instructed by us, Google will use the information for the purpose of analysing your use of our Site, to compose reports on the activities of our Site and to provide further services to us related to the use of the website and the internet. The IP address that is transferred by your browser and that is shortened before storing for the purposes of Google Analytics will not be added to other Google data. You can prevent the storage of the cookies through browser settings (see section 1.9), however we remind you that, in certain instances, this may cause a reduction in the functionality of the Site.  More information about Google Analytics’ use of your data can be on the Google Privacy Policy:  Google provides a browser-add on which allows users to opt-out of Google Analytics across all websites which can be downloaded here:


1.13           This Site makes use of retargeting technologies that are administered by other operators. Through retargeting, users of our partners’ websites, who were previously interested in our Site and in our Services, can be approached with personalized advertisements. If you wish to object to this mode of advertisement, you can deactivate cookies and/or delete existent cookies through your browser settings, following the instructions under “Cookies”.

1.14           The legal basis for the processing of your data along with the use of collective analytical tools and internet technologies is our legitimate interest in obtaining an analysis of the activities and the user’s and surfer’s behaviour on the Site, notably for research, BI, and product development, as well as our legitimate interest (and the interest of third-parties) in the inclusion of personalized advertisements suited to your interests.

2.                   CLICKSTREAM DATA

As you browse the Internet, a trail of electronic information is left at each web site you visit. This information, which is sometimes called “clickstream” data, can be collected and stored by a web site’s server. Clickstream data can tell us the type of computer and browsing software you use, the address of the website from which you linked to the Site, and in some instances, your email address. We may use clickstream data to determine how much time visitors spend on each page of the Site and how they navigate through the Site. We will only use this information on an aggregated basis to improve or customise the Site.
