We use five types of cookies: strictly necessary cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies, cookies for marketing purposes, and Local Stored Objects.
Strictly necessary cookies are essential in order to enable you to move around our websites and use their features. These are temporary cookies that last only as long as your web browser is open, and are used for technical purposes such as enabling better navigation on our website. Without these cookies, services you have asked for cannot be provided. Once you close your browser, the cookie disappears.
Performance cookies are stored on your computer for longer periods and are used for purposes including tracking the number of unique visitors to our website services and information such as the number of views a page gets, how much time a user spends on a page, and other pertinent web statistics. The collected information is aggregated, and therefore made anonymous. These cookies are used exclusively to improve the performance of the website, and with it the user experience.
Functional cookies enable the website to save information which has already been entered (such as user names, language choices, and your location), so that it can offer you improved and more personalized functions. Functional cookies are also used to enable features you request such as playing videos. These cookies collect anonymous information and cannot track your movements on other websites.
If you activate IP anonymization, your IP address will be truncated within the area of Member States of the European Union (“EU”) or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (“EEA”). Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address be first transferred to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. The IP address that your browser conveys within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
