You can force your browser to block cookies in your browser settings at any time. The way in which you deactivate cookies is largely dependent on the particular internet browser that you use. Refer to your browser’s Help function for more details.
The Telecommunications Act (TCA) regulates how cookies are used and we comply with this legislation (Art. 45c, TCA).
For the purpose of designing our website to meet our needs and those of our users, and for the ongoing optimisation of the website, we use the Google Analytics web analysis service. In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and small text files that are stored on your computer (‘cookies’) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is transmitted to the servers of the providers of these services, stored there and processed for us. In addition to the data listed under 1 above, this may provide us with the following information:
- navigation path taken by a visitor to the site,
- length of stay on the website or sub-page,
- the sub-page on which the website is exited,
- the country, region or city from which the site is accessed,
- end device (type, version, colour depth, resolution, width and height of the browser window) and
- returning or new visitor.
The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services associated with website and internet usage for the purpose of market research and tailoring the design of this website to suit our needs and those of users. This information may also be shared with third parties if required by law or if third parties are processing these data on our behalf.
Creation of pseudonymised user profiles
In order to provide you with personalised services and information on our website (on-site targeting), we use and analyse the data that we collect about you when you visit the website. So-called cookies may also be used when processing these data. The analysis of your user behaviour may result in the creation of a so-called user profile. Your usage data will only ever be consolidated using pseudonyms; we never do this with non-pseudonymised personal data.
We use re-targeting technologies on our website. Your user behaviour on our website is analysed to enable partner websites to offer you advertising that is individually tailored to your preferences. Your user behaviour will be recorded under a pseudonym.
This website uses Google AdWords Remarketing, services provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (‘Google’), to display ads based on your use of previously visited websites. For this purpose, Google uses the so-called double-click cookie, which allows your browser to be recognised when you visit other websites. The information generated by the cookie about your visit to this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.
Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website in terms of the advertisements to be displayed, to compile reports for the website operator on website activities and ads, and to perform other services associated with website and internet usage. Google may also share this information with third parties if required by law or if third parties are processing these data on Google’s behalf. However, Google will never associate your IP address with other Google data.
You can prevent re-targeting at any time by refusing or disabling the relevant cookies in the menu bar of your web browser.
