It supplements our Privacy Notice.

When you use our website and/or services, we and selected third parties may use cookies and similar technologies in order to provide you with a better, faster and safer user experience.

I. What are cookies and similar technologies?

a) Cookies are small text files (typically made up of letters and numbers) that are automatically created by your browser and stored on your device. Cookies allow for a recognition of a specific device or browser. Other tracking technologies include web beacons, Java Scripts, entity tags, and HTML5 local storage.

  • We use cookies and similar technologies that remain on your device only as long as your browser is active (session cookies), as well as cookies and similar technologies that remain on your device longer (persistent cookies).
  • First-party cookies are set by the provider whose online service you are using (e.g. the operator of the website you are visiting)
  • Third-party cookies are set by a provider other than the provider whose online service you are using (e.g. the operator of a website other than the one you are visiting)

b) Similar technologies

Similar technologies are technologies which enable tracking user behaviour.

  • Web Beacons – Web beacons are small, transparent images that are embedded in web pages, applications, and emails that are sometimes called “clear gifs”, “single pixel gifs”, “page tags” or “web bugs”. We use web beacons in marketing emails to track and to test the effectiveness of marketing activities, and to find out if an email has been opened and acted on.
  • JavaScript – JavaScript are code snippets embedded in various parts of websites and applications that facilitate a variety of operations including accelerating the refresh speed of certain functionality or monitoring usage of various online components.
  • Entity Tags – Entity Tags are HTTP code mechanisms that allow portions of websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser and validates these caches when the website is opened, accelerating website performance since the web server does not need to send a full response if the content has not changed.
  • HTML5 Local Storage – HTML5 local storage allows data from websites to be stored or “cached” within your browser to store and retrieve data in HTML5 pages when the website is revisited.

b) Google Analytics

 

We use Google Analytics, an analysis tool of Google LLC and Google Ireland Ltd. (“Google”) to continuously improve our website and services (analytics to assess how popular certain content is and to take future decisions on what to focus on).

The data collected by the cookies regarding the use of our Services (including your IP address) are usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there (see additional information for users in the European Economic Area below in this section).

The data collected via Google Analytics is automatically deleted after 14 months.

You can prevent the collection of data through the Google Analytics cookie by adjusting your browser settings accordingly. However, this may affect the ability to use of our website/services.

To prevent the collection of personal data via Google Analytics the following browser plugin can be installed. Further information about Google Analytics can be found in the terms of use and in the privacy policy of Google.

In order to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses we use the code “_anonymizeIp()”. Therefore, before your IP address is transmitted to Google’s servers in the USA, it is sent to a Google server in the EU (or in another member state of the EEA), where it is shortened by removing the last octet of the IP address prior to its storage so that it cannot be traced to a specific person. Only then the shortened IP address sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
