Cookies and website tracking

This website uses Google Analytics technologies to collect and store data for marketing and optimisation purposes. This data forms the basis for the creation of usage profiles under a pseudonym, which may involve the use of cookies or pixel tags.

 Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the buffer of the visitor's Web browser. The cookies enable the Web browser to be recognised at a later date.

Pixel tags, web beacons, clear GIFs and other similar tools, hereinafter referred to collectively as pixel tags, are used to monitor and collect statistical data on the usage of a website and its response rates. Pixel tags enable us to count the number of users visiting certain sub-pages of a website and to provide services associated with our brands, and they help us to analyse and optimise the operation of our website.

The data collected through Google Analytics technologies is not used to identify any visitor to this website personally without the express consent of the person concerned and it is not merged with personal data of the bearer of the pseudonym. Users may revoke their consent to the collection and storage of data at any time with future effect.
