We and our part­ners use coo­kies to pro­vi­de appro­pria­te ser­vices. This also app­lies if you visit our web­site or access our services.
A “coo­kie” is a small pie­ce of data that is asso­cia­ted with your device when visi­t­ing a page of this web­site. Coo­kies are use­ful and can be used for dif­fe­rent pur­po­ses. The­se inclu­de easier navi­ga­ti­on bet­ween dif­fe­rent pages, auto­ma­tic acti­va­ti­on of cer­tain func­tions, saving your set­tings and opti­mi­zed access to our ser­vices. The use of coo­kies also allows us to show you rele­vant, tailo­red adver­ti­se­ments and to collect sta­tis­ti­cal infor­ma­ti­on about your use of our services.
This web­site uses the fol­lowing types of cookies:
a. “Ses­si­on coo­kies”that ensu­re nor­mal sys­tem usa­ge. Ses­si­on coo­kies are stored for a limi­ted time during a ses­si­on and are dele­ted from your device when you clo­se your browser.
b. “Per­sis­tent coo­kies“, which are read only by the web page and are not dele­ted when clo­sing the brow­ser win­dow, but are stored on your com­pu­ter for a cer­tain peri­od of time. This type of coo­kie allows us to iden­ti­fy you on your next visit and, for examp­le, save your settings.
c. “Third-par­ty Coo­kies”that are set by other online ser­vices that have their own con­tent on the page you are visi­t­ing. This can be for examp­le, exter­nal web ana­ly­tics com­pa­nies that collect and ana­ly­ze access to our website.
Coo­kies do not con­tain per­so­nal­ly iden­ti­fia­ble infor­ma­ti­on that iden­ti­fies you, but we may link the per­so­nal infor­ma­ti­on we hold to the infor­ma­ti­on con­tai­ned in the coo­kies. You can remo­ve coo­kies through the device set­tings of your device. Fol­low the appro­pria­te inst­ruc­tions. Plea­se note that dis­ab­ling coo­kies may restrict cer­tain func­tions when using our website.

If your brow­ser does not sup­port or deny Goog­le Web Fonts, the con­tent will be dis­play­ed in a stan­dard font.
  • When cal­ling script or font libra­ries, we auto­ma­ti­cal­ly con­nect to the owner of the libra­ry. The­re is theo­re­ti­cal­ly the pos­si­bi­li­ty for this ope­ra­tor to collect data. At pre­sent it is not known whe­ther and for what pur­po­se the ope­ra­tors of the respec­ti­ve libra­ries actual­ly collect data.
