In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in association with the browser you're using and by which the party which sets the cookie (in this case, us), transmits certain information. Cookies cannot run programs or deliver viruses to your computer. They serve to make our site more user-friendly and effective.
This website and our services use the following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below:
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close the browser. These especially include session cookies. These store a session ID which assigns the various requests made by your browser during the joint session. This allows your device to be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close the browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may differ depending on the cookie in question. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to, and stored by, Google, on servers in the United States. We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. Thus your IP address will be truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other member states to the Agreement, throughout the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide the website operator with further services associated with the use of the website and the internet.
The IP address transmitted by your browser within Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are further processed in truncated form, so that linking these to individuals can be ruled out. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, it will be blocked immediately and the personal data deleted, as soon as possible.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework, for exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. (1) sub-paragraph 1 (f) of the GDPR.
