The information collected automatically by cookies about your use of this website are as a rule transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. At the same time, as IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, the IP address will be shortened before being transmitted within the area of member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address will be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Generally, Google does not associate the anonymised IP address, transmitted from your browser through Google Analytics, with any other data held by Google.

Web bugs have similar functions to cookies, but are not noticeable to you as a user. Web bugs send your IP address, the Internet address of the website you visited (URL), the time at which the web bug was viewed, the user's browser type and previously set cookie information to a web server. By using so-called web bugs on our pages, we can identify your computer and evaluate user behavior (e.g. reactions to advertising campaigns).

If, in such a case, you visit our website while being signed in to Google, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to build and define audience lists for cross-device remarketing. For this purpose, Google will temporarily join your data with Google Analytics data to build audiences.
