Collection and storage of user data

In order to optimise our website, we collect and store data, such as the date and time of the website retrieval, the site from which you accessed our website, and similar information. This is done in an anonymous form, without personally identifying the website user. User profiles may be created by means of a pseudonym. No connection will be made between the individual behind the pseudonym and the user data collected.

Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and serve to store statistical information such as information on your operating system, your internet browser, IP address, previously retrieved website (referrer URL) and the time. We collect such data exclusively for statistical purposes, in order to further optimise our internet presence and to be able to make our internet offers even more attractive. Collection and storage is only done in an anonymised form or using pseudonyms, and cannot be traced back to you as an individual.
