Cookies are tiny text files that are stored on your computer, mobile phone or tablet. They won’t pose any security threat to your computer and have nothing to do with viruses. When you visit a website, the cookies enable the website to ‘remember’ you and how you have used the website every time you went back to the website, which means you get a much better online experience.
If you want to know more about cookies then you can get information readily available online.
What if I want to control my cookie permissions?
If you don’t want to receive cookies you can modify your browser so that you receive notification when they are sent to you. You can decline cookies altogether. You can also delete cookies that have already been set.
A so-called “User ID” will be used on this website. The User ID functions as your alias in Google Analytics. Google connects your online behavior and the User-ID to a profile. Google Analytics tracks your activities anonymously across multiple devices like your tablet, pc and smartphone.
The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers. Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for us and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.
Google only receives the User-ID, not the information contained in the above-mentioned profile or other personal data of yours. A summarized version of the profile created is accessible to us. We do not attach any other of your personally identifiable data to the profile connected to a User-ID. You can opt out of tracking via User ID by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org
We also use other analytics like Facebook Analytics and LinkedIn to get information about your usage in our system.
By continuing to use our site, we believe you agree to the placement of cookies on your device. If you choose not to receive our cookies, it may happen that your user experience won’t be as fulfilling as it would otherwise be.
