This website also makes use of Google Conversion Tracking, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, www.google.com. Google stores a cookie ("conversion cookie") on your access device if you have accessed our website from a Google advert. These cookies cease to be valid after 30 days.

Advertisers are informed about the total number of users who have clicked their AdWords advertisement and who have been sent to a website with a conversion tracking tag. Advertisers do not receive any information which can be used to identify individual users.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google") as well as the tools Remarketing and Display Network. Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files which are stored on your computer to analyse the way you use the website. IP addresses are anonymised. The information about the way you use this website created by the cookie is sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google first truncates IP addresses in Member States of the European Union or in other state parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address sent to and truncated on a Google server in the USA. Google uses this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate the way you use the website, to collate reports on website activities and to provide the website operator other services related to website and Internet use. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data held by Google. You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies from being stored; however, we draw your attention to the fact that, in these circumstances, you may find that you are unable to make full use of functions on the website. You can also prevent the data (including your IP address) relating to your use of the website which is captured by the cookie being sent to or processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de .
