Web analysis

Adobe Analytics (Omniture): In order to design our website for the requirements, we create pseudonym user profiles with the assistance of Adobe Analytics (Omniture). Adobe Analytics (Omniture) uses cookies. These are text files stored on your computer which allows us to analyze your use of the website. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is normally transmitted to an Adobe server in the USA and saved there. Because we have activated the IP anonymization of this website, the server setting carried out by us ensures that geo-localization of the IP address is anonymous – the last octet of the IP address is replaced by zeros. Before saving the information generated by the cookies, the IP address is replaced by individual generic IP addresses. Adobe will use this information in order to evaluate for us your use of the website in order to compile reports about the website activities and to produce further services for us in conjunction with the use of the website and Internet.
 
You can veto the creation of pseudonym user profiles at any time. There are multiple options for this:
 
One option to veto the web analysis by Adobe Analytics (Omniture) is to set an opt-out cookie, which instructs Adobe not to save or use your data for purposes of web analysis. Please note that with this solution, the web analysis is not carried out only as long as the opt-out cookie is saved by the browser. If you wish to now set the opt-out cookie, please click here.
 
You can also prevent the cookies used for forming a profile being saved by a corresponding setting in your browser software.

Facebook

On these Internet pages plug-ins of the social network facebook.com are used, which are operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook").

If you call up an Internet page on our website which has such plug-ins, a connection will be established to Facebook servers and the plugin will be shown on the Internet page through a notification to your browser. This transmits information indicating which Internet pages you have visited to the Facebook server. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, Facebook allocates this information to your personal Facebook user account. When the plug-in functions are used (for instance by clicking the “Like” button, making a comment), this information will also be allocated to your Facebook account, which you can only prevent by logging out before using the plug-in.

You will find further information on collection and utilisation of data by Facebook and your rights to protect your private sphere regarding this in Facebook’s privacy policy.

We use cookies in some areas of our website, which will enable us, for example, to recognize users and personalise the website, improving navigation and usability. Cookies also help us identify particularly popular areas of our website. Cookies are small files that are stored on a user's hard drive. They store information for a set time and make it possible to identify the user's computer. We use persistent cookies for better personalization and performance. We also use session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser. You can configure your browser to alert you when cookies are sent to it, which makes it clear when cookies are being used.
