Through Google Analytics anonymous data on the surfing behaviour is collected on our website. This provides important statistics on the number of visitors, the pages visited, the traffic sources and other essential information with which we can continually improve our website for the users. These statistics are anonymous and cannot be traced back to a specific person or user. To enable careful processing, we have taken the following measures:
- We have signed a processor agreement with Google;
- We have masked the last octet of the IP address;
- We have disabled all the opportunities Google offers to “share data with Google”;
- We do not use other Google services in combination with the Google Analytics cookies.
The Google Analytics cookies and the resulting data are managed by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google may provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have no influence on this.
The information that Google collects is transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google maintains the Privacy Shield principles and is affiliated with the Privacy Shield program of the US Department of Commerce. This means that there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of any personal data.

Embedded content from other websites act in the same way as when you visit the other website. These websites may collect information about you, including location data and user activity.

The storage period of this cookie is 30 days. When this period has expired, you will be asked again for permission to load embedded content when you visit our website.
