Those are small text files that are saved on your hard drive or your data carrier respectively and that save certain settings and data referring to your device (e.g. computer or smart phone) in order to exchange them with our system.

Usually, information about your using our website created by the cookie is transmitted to a Google server located in the USA and is saved there. On this website, IP anonymisation has been activated, so as to make sure that IP addresses belonging to Google users within the member states of the European Union or within contractual states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area are shortened beforehand. On our account, Google will use that information to evaluate your and other users’ website usage in order to compile reports about website activities and in order to provide us with additional services related to website usage. IP addresses that are transmitted in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent cookie saving by adjusting your relevant browser settings.
