This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer and enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie concerning your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will, however, be truncated by Google beforehand within the area of the member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the United States and truncated there.
Google will use this information on behalf of this website's owner to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports about website activities, and provide the website’s operator with further services related to website and internet usage. The IP address sent by your browser as required by Google Analytics is not merged with other data by Google.
You can prevent storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software. If you do this, however, please note that you might not be able to use all the functions of the website.

For more information, see https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB and https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en (general information on Google Analytics and data protection).

Use of Facebook Social Plugins
This website uses so-called social plugins (“plugins”) from the social network Facebook, which is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook"). You can find an overview of Facebook plugins and their appearance at: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins.
If you access a page from our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook’s servers. Facebook sends the contents of the plugin directly to your browser and embeds them into the web page. This process enables Facebook to receive the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in with Facebook at the time. This information (including your IP address) is sent by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the United States and is stored there.
If you are logged into Facebook, Facebook can then attribute the visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins – for example, if you click on the ‘Like‘ button or submit a comment – the corresponding information will be sent directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published on Facebook and shown to your Facebook friends.
Facebook may use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and the personalized design of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to analyze your use of our website with regard to the advertisements that Facebook displays to you, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our web site, and to provide further services associated with the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to collect data about you via our website and to attribute this to your Facebook account, you should log out of your Facebook account before visiting our website.
Conversion Measurement with Facebook’s Conversion Tracking Pixel
With your consent, we will use the conversion tracking pixel of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, United States (hereinafter: “Facebook”) on our website. With the aid of this tool, we can track the actions of users after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook advertisement. This allows us to record the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this manner is anonymous for us, which means we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is saved and processed by Facebook. We are informing you of this process based on the current information available to us. Facebook can link this data with your Facebook account and use it for its own advertising purposes in accordance with Facebook’s data policy at https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. This data can enable Facebook and its partners to insert advertisements on Facebook and outside Facebook. Furthermore, a cookie can be saved on your computer to this end.
