The data that is saved will be used for statistical purposes only. This information will not be disclosed to third parties.

We use only technical cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer but that do not contain any personal data and only store the status of system login, i.e. these cookies are used to transfer the logged-in status. Their lifetime is restricted to one session.

Our website uses the Piwik web analytics platform. Piwik uses cookies to analyse how a website is used. To this end, the usage information generated by the cookies (including your abbreviated IP address) is transferred to our server and saved in order to analyse usage behaviour, which enables us to optimize our website. During this process, your IP address is immediately made anonymous so that you, as a user, remain anonymous. The information about your behaviour on our website generated by the cookies is not passed on to third parties.

If you do not consent to the storage and evaluation of these data from your visit then you can withdraw this consent at any time by ticking the box below ("Opt out"). In this case, an opt-out cookie will be sent to your browser, which means that Piwik will not collect any data on the session.
