5. Cookies/ Google Analytics
5.1.1. We use
a) mostly what are referred to as transient cookies. Transient cookies will be automatically deleted when you close the browser. In particular, these include session cookies. These cookies save the session ID that enables the various requests of your browser to be assigned during a shared session. This feature allows your computer to be recognised again when you return to the website. Session cookies will be deleted when you log out or close your browser.
b) persistent cookies. Persistent cookies will be automatically deleted after a predetermined period, which may vary depending on the cookies. You can also delete these cookies at any time, using the security settings on your browser.
c) flash cookies. Flash cookies are not captured through your browser, but through your Flash Player. These cookies save the necessary data independently of the browser you are using and have no automatic expiration date. If you do not want any processing by flash cookies, you must install the appropriate add-on, e.g. for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or Adobe Flash Cookie for Google Chrome).
5.2. Google Analytics
5.2.1. Furthermore, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. (“Google”).Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer to help the website analyse how you use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
5.2.2. In case of activation of the IP anonymisation, Google will truncate the last octet of the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to and truncated by Google servers in the USA. On behalf of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider.
5.2.3. For the purposes of Google Analytics, Google will not associate the IP address sent from your browser with any other data held by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by using the appropriate settings on your browser software. However, we advise you that should you do so, you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of this website.
5.2.4. Furthermore, you can prevent the capturing of data provided by the cookie and data related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available through the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
5.2.5. We advise you that on this website, Google Analytics has been enhanced with the “gat. AnonymizeIP();” code to ensure anonymised capturing of IP address (known as IP masking). In this way, IP addresses are reprocessed in truncated form and any direct tracing to a person is thereby excluded.
5.2.6. Use of Google Analytics is undertaken in compliance with requirements agreed with Google by the German data protection authority.
