We use “cookies” in order to enable the use of certain functions. These are short data packets that are stored on your device and exchanged with other providers.

You can erase all cookies stored on your device and adjust the settings of all of the common browsers in such a way that storage of cookies is prevented.

aa) Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google uses certain cookies for this.

This means that it is generally not possible to associate the stored data with a specific individual. Only in isolated cases is the full IP address transferred to a server in the United States and shortened there.
