How we use cookies We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (Google) which uses cookies to help analyse how the website is used to improve your experience in our systems.

A so-called “User ID” will be used on this website. The User ID functions as your alias in Google Analytics. Google connects your online behavior and the User-ID to a profile. Google Analytics tracks your activities on an anonymized basis across multiple devices (tablet, PC, smartphone, etc.).

The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

Google only receives the User-ID, not the information contained in the above-mentioned profile or other personal data of yours. A summarized version of the profile created is accessible to us. We do not attach any other of your personally identifiable data to the profile connected to a User-ID.

You may also refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.
