The protection of your data is important to us and that, of course, applies also to the handling of your data during your visit to our website. We handle your personal data according to the following principles, in particular with regard to the question of which data we collect and analyse when you visit our website, and how such data is used:
- collect anonymous information which we use so that we can track the behaviour of users better when they visit our website;
- produce statistical reports on website activity, e.g. the number of visitors and which pages they access;
- store information temporarily that you can enter in tools, such as computers or information on our website;
- and in some cases, to remember information about you when you visit our website. This may be necessary for us to provide some of our services.
Types of cookies used
We use two types of cookies:
- Session cookies - these are temporary and are deleted as soon as you close your browser.
- Permanent cookies - these are stored on your computer until they expire after a period of 6 months or if you remove them beforehand.
Permanent cookies store your personal preferences (so-called status information), such as your language preference on multilingual sites to make it easier for you on your return visit. They also remember questions that we have asked you beforehand, such as a request to complete an online questionnaire. A permanent cookie prevents you from being asked repeatedly to complete the questionnaire at every visit.
Session cookies store your status information for the duration of your visit in the form of a session identification number (SID). Session cookies are deleted again as soon as you close your internet browser. The SID is required for differentiating a user’s browser usage and to store information that may be accessed during the session.
