We use analytical cookies
Our website uses Google Analytics. With this tool we track how often visitors use a page of our website, which pages visitors go to most often, and if they get error messages from our pages. Your IP address will be processed in a pseudonymized manner. That way we are no longer able to directly identify you as an individual.
We use social media cookies and plugins
If you activate plug-ins or activity feeds of social media providers (such as Facebook, Google+ or LinkedIn), your web browser will connect to the servers of the respective providers and send your specific user data. These plug-ins and activity feeds are deactivated by default. As soon as you activate such plug-ins or activity feeds, you provide your consent to transmit your data.
In addition, if you are currently logged in to a social network of one of the above mentioned providers; your activity may be linked to your user account at the same time.
