Our website uses "cookies" to ensure quality and to improve the functionality of our online presence. Cookies are text files that are stored on the user's computer and, among other things, provide the opportunity to link the number of user’s visits to a web page. Our website uses these transient and persistent cookies. Transient cookies are deleted automatically when you close your browser. In particular, these include the session cookies. These save a so-called session ID, which allows various requests from your browser to be linked to the common session. Thereby your computer can be recognised again when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a stipulated duration, which may differ depending on the cookie, in the case of the cookies set by us though, up to a maximum of two years. You can always delete cookies in your browser security settings. You can configure your browser settings according to your wishes and, for example, accept third party cookies or reject all cookies. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.

This offer uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses cookies, which enable an analysis of your use of this website.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
 
Google will use this information to evaluate the use of the website by the user, in order to compile reports about the website activities and to provide other website and Internet related services to the website operator. The IP address of your browser provided in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. 
 
Users may impede the use of cookies by means of a corresponding setting in their browser software; in this case, however, it may happen that you will not be able to use all the functions of this website.
