IP addresses, Internet browsers, operating systems, domain names: If you use our website, we may collect your IP address. The IP address enables us to identify your ISP, but not you directly. Furthermore, we can acquire information about the type of Internet browser used, your operating system and the domain name of the website from which you arrived to our website, as non-personal information. The data collection occurs for demographic purposes, such as determining the geographic location of visitors, and recording the time spent on our website. Collecting this type of information allows us to administer our website, to diagnose server problems and to analyze trends and statistics and thus to provide a better customer service to you.
When you visit our website, we may send "cookies" to your computer. A cookie is a small text file or data fragment, which can save the site you are visiting, on your computer. Cookies themselves do not contain any data for personal identification. However, if you make personal information available to us (e.g. by registering for one of our internet services or using a password provided by us), this information can be linked to the data stored in the cookie. There are two types of cookies. The first type stores data on your PC for a longer period, and the data is retained even after turning off the computer. Such cookies are used, for example, to tell visitors which data have been updated on the website, since they last visited this website. The second type of cookie is called "session cookie". During your website visit, these session cookies are temporarily stored on your computer. They allow for example to maintain a language, once selected. Session cookies do not remain stored on your computer for a long time, but are deleted when you close your Internet browser. We can also delegate third parties to collect cookie data or information.
