2 Different types of cookies we use

We use both temporary and permanent cookies. Temporary cookies are deleted when you close your browser. We also use permanent cookies which will be saved for a predetermined time.

The different usage scenarios for cookies are outlined below.

Cookies for usage and/or visitor tracking

Cookies are used for measuring different usage aspects on our website (for instance which pages are opened most often, possible error messages etc.). These cookies do not track or save any personal details, they are anonymous and are only used for technical monitoring and debugging purposes.

We track our visitor count and behavior with Google Analytics, a service that uses cookies. The cookies and data is saved on Google servers, some of which can be located outside EU. If so, local data processing legislation applies. More information about Google’s privacy policy and Google Analytics tracking is available here:

Google Analytics saves data on browser details (for example browser version, language), a browser identifying id and ip address. The ip address is anonymized (some digits are removed, and it cannot be connected to a specific visitor). The data is stored for three years.

If you use our website, you are consenting to the use of Google Analytics. If you do not consent, please do not use our website.

You can disable the use of Google Analytics on your browser by enabling a function called Do Not Track (DNT), available in most browsers. We will honor the setting and disable Google Analytics on your visit if your browser requests it.

Our website also uses cookies from Facebook and Twitter. The data in those cookies can be transferred to their servers, which may reside outside the EU.
