4. Cookies
We collect information regarding your visit to this website, for example, pages you visit, the website that led you to our website and search operations that you perform. We use this information to improve the content of our website and to collect statistics for the purpose of internal market analysis on the use of our website. To this end, we use cookies that register your domain name, Internet provider, operating system, and the date and time you visited the website. These cookies are deleted automatically when you close all instances of the browser. Furthermore, our website uses the Web analysis service Google Analytics, which deploys additional cookies (see item 5 below)

5. Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a Web analysis service developed by Google Inc. Google Analytics uses cookies, text files that are saved on your computer and make it possible to analyse use of the website. The information about the use of our website obtained from cookies, including your IP address, is anonymised via the corresponding settings (‘_anonymizelp()’ or a comparable function) before being sent to the Google server in the US, where it is stored. Google only uses information obtained from the cookies to evaluate the use of our website, to create reports about activity on our website and to make these reports available to us for purposes of analysis. Google will transfer this information to third parties if required by law or if these third parties are contracted by Google to process the data. Google assures us that they will not connect your IP address with other data from Google.
You can prevent cookies from being installed by applying the appropriate settings in your browser software. If you do so, you will not be able to make full use of our website. By using our website, you agree to allow the data collected about you to be processed by Google in the manner described above and for the aforementioned purposes.

6. Incorporation of services and third-party content

Our website incorporates content from third parties, for example videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps and RSS feeds or graphics from other websites. As a result, the providers of this content have access to your IP address, since without your IP address they would be unable to send the content to your browser. We make an effort to only collaborate with providers who use your IP address solely to display content. But we cannot prevent these providers from storing your IP address for statistical purposes, for example.

7. The use of Facebook plugins

Our website uses social plugins from the facebook.com network, which is operated by Facebook Inc. The plugins can be recognised by the Facebook logo (a white «f» on a blue tile, «Like», «Like this», the thumbs-up icon).

When you visit our website, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred directly to your browser from Facebook and is integrated into the website by your browser. As a result, we have no influence over the amount of data that Facebook transfers by means of the plugin. The integration of the plugin allows Facebook to obtain information about which pages on our website you have visited. If you are logged on to Facebook, Facebook can associate your visit with your Facebook account. When you interact with the plugins, for example, when you press the Like button or enter a comment, the corresponding information is sent from your browser directly to Facebook and is stored there. If you are a Facebook member and do not want Facebook to collect data about your visit to our website, you must log out of Facebook. Even if you are not a member of Facebook, it is possible that Facebook may find out your IP address and store it. According to Facebook, IP addresses are only stored anonymously.

Facebook provides information regarding the objectives and scope of data collection, the subsequent processing and use of the data, rights associated with the data, and settings you can use to protect your privacy at www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.

8. The use of Twitter buttons

We use buttons from the Twitter service, which is provided by Twitter Inc. They can be identified by their use of terms such as «Twitter» or «Follow» combined with a blue bird. These buttons allow you to share articles from our website on Twitter or to follow us on Twitter.

When you visit our website, your browser establishes a direct connection with the Twitter servers. The content of the Twitter buttons is transferred directly to your browser from Twitter. As a result, we have no influence over the amount of data that Twitter transfers by means of the plugin. According to Twitter, your IP address and the URL of our website is transferred when you click the button. This data is required in order to display the Twitter button.

More information is available in Twitter’s privacy statement: http://twitter.com/privacy.

9. Links to other websites

This privacy statement only applies to this website. It does not apply to websites owned by third parties. We may include links to other websites that in our opinion may be of interest to our visitors. We make every effort to ensure that these websites meet the highest standards. However, the nature of the Internet is such that we cannot guarantee that every website we link to meets privacy protection standards, nor can we accept liability for the content of those websites. This privacy statement is not applicable to any of the websites we link to.

10. Security and confidentiality

To ensure the security and confidentiality of the personal data we collect online, we use data networks that are protected via industry-standard firewalls, password systems and more. When handling your personal data, we take appropriate measures to protect your data from loss, abuse, unauthorised access and disclosure.
