The protection of your privacy is very important to us. In the following we inform you about how we have implemented the protection of your data on our website:
The website, email traffic, online services, advertising and interactive applications may use "cookies" to optimize our services.
What is a "cookie"?
A "cookie" is a sequence of text characters which we transmit to the computer's hard drive via our web server to the cookie file of the browser. This will allow our site to recognize you when a connection is made between our web server and your browser. The main purpose of a cookie is to recognize visitors to the site, so that our web server can present you with a more personalized content, more tailored to your needs.
Two types of cookies are used on this website:
Session Cookies: These are temporary cookies that remain in the cookie file of your browser until you leave our website. These cookies are necessary for certain applications or features of the website to be properly executed.
Persistent cookies: We can use persistent cookies for better usability (for example, to provide optimal navigation). These are cookies that stay in the cookie file of your browser for a longer period of time. This period depends on the settings of your Internet browser. Persistent cookies allow you to submit information to a web server each time you visit the site. Persistent cookies are also known as tracking cookies. If you want to learn more about cookies, there are many publications available on this topic. See for example: http://www.allaboutcookies.org
Use of Google Analytics
If you are a member of Facebook and do not want them to collect data about you via our website and link them with your member data stored there, you must log out of the user account of Facebook before visiting our website.
On this website you find a plugin of the social network LinkedIn. This is a plugin from LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. You can recognize LinkedIn's plugins by the appropriate logo or the "Recommend" button. When you visit our website, the plugin builds a connection between your Internet browser and the LinkedIn server. LinkedIn is informed that our website has been visited with your IP address. If you click on LinkedIn's "Recommend Button" and at the same time you are logged into your LinkedIn account, you have the option of linking content from our website to your Profile page on LinkedIn Profile. LinkedIn can thereby associate your visit to our website with your user account. For more details on collecting the data and your legal options, as well as setting options, visit http://www.linkedin.com/static?key=privacy_policy&trk=hb_ft_priv
