1. Whenever you access our website, we collect the following information about your computer: your computer’s IP address, the request issued by your browser, and the time of this request. In addition, the status and the amount of data collected within the scope of this request are also recorded. We also collect product and version information about the browser and the operating system of your computer. Further, we record from which website our site is accessed. Your computer’s IP address is stored only for the time of your use of the website and deleted immediately thereafter or anonymized by truncation.

2. Under certain circumstances, we also collect information about your use of our website through the use of browser cookies. These are small text files which are stored on your computer’s mass memory and contain certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A cookie typically contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data is sent, as well as information about the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Cookies enable our systems to recognize the user’s device and to activate any user preferences immediately. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transferred to the hard disk of that user’s computer. Cookies help us to improve our website and be able to offer a service that is better and even more tailored to your interests. They enable us to recognize your computer when you return to our website and, as a result, offer the following benefits:

(a) We can save information about your favourite activities on the website and therefore adjust our website to suit your individual interests. This includes, for example, advertising that matches your personal interests;

3. Only the above data about your use of the website are stored in the cookies used by us. This is done not through an association to you personally, but by assigning an identification number to the cookie (the “cookie ID”). There is no merging or correlation of the cookie ID with your name, your IP address, or similar data that would enable any association of the cookie with you. To find out how you can disable the use of browser cookies, see item 3.6 below.

4. Our website makes use of so-called tracking technologies. We utilize these technologies in order to make our Internet offering more interesting for you. This technique makes it possible to address Internet users who have already shown an interest in our site, by displaying targeted recommendations on the sites of our partners. The insertion of this advertising on the webpages of our partners is based on cookies and on an analysis of the previous usage behaviour. This analysis is carried out under a pseudonym and no usage profiles will be merged with your personal data. If you do not agree to the creation of usage profiles, you can withdraw your consent by sending us a message. Depending on the service an opt-out cookie can be created on your computer. If you delete this cookie or if it is automatically deleted by the browser settings, you must reinstall this cookie when visiting our website again.

To find out how you can disable the use of such cookies, see item 3.6 below.
