1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are sent directly from the websites visited by the user to the user's terminal device (usually the browser), where they are stored and transmitted to the same websites the next time the user visits (so-called first-party cookies). When navigating a website, the user may also receive cookies from other websites or web servers (so-called third-party cookies). This happens because the website visited may contain elements such as images, maps, sounds, specific links to websites of other domains that are located on different servers other than the one on which the requested website is located. In other words, they are cookies set by a different website than the one you are currently visiting.
Cookies may be limited to a single browsing session, in which case they are automatically disabled when the user closes the browser; or they may have a pre-determined expiry date, in which case they remain stored and active on the user's hard drive until that date and continue to collect information over the course of different browsing sessions.
Cookies are used for various functions. The following categories of cookies are used on this website.
1.1 Essential cookies (technical cookies)
These cookies are necessary for the website to function and cannot be disabled in our systems. These cookies are usually only set in response to actions you take that correspond to a request for a service, such as setting your privacy preferences, logging in or filling in forms. You can set your browser to block these cookies or to notify you of these cookies. However, some areas of the website will then not work. These cookies do not store any personal data.
1.2 Performance cookies
These cookies allow us to count visits and traffic flow, so we can measure and improve the performance of our website. They help us to know which pages are the most popular and which have the fewest visitors, and to see how visitors move around the site. All the information these cookies gather is aggregated and therefore anonymous. If you do not allow these cookies, we do not know when you visited our website and cannot monitor its performance.
1.3 Functional cookies
These cookies allow the website to offer additional functionality and personalisation. They may be used by us or third-party providers whose services we use on our site. If you do not allow them, some or all of these services may not function fully.
1.4 Cookies for marketing purposes
These cookies may be set through our website by our advertising partners. They may be used by these companies to create a profile of your interests and show you relevant ads on other websites. They do not directly store personal data but are based on a unique identification of your browser and internet device. If you do not allow these cookies, you will experience less targeted advertising.

3. Use of Google Analytics
If you have given your consent to performance cookies, Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, is used on this website. The responsible service provider in the EU is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"). As a processor, Google Ireland Limited is the recipient of the data. The information collected via cookies about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Transmission of data to the USA can therefore not be ruled out.
We use the function 'anonymizeIP' (so-called IP masking): Due to the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. When transferring data to the USA, Google respects the standard contractual clauses issued by the European Commission and recognised by the Swiss Federal Data Protection and Information Commissioner (https://business.safety.google/gdpr/). The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your (pseudonymous) use of the website and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyse the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.
