The servers for our web site record information for each hit which may possibly allow the identification of the person accessing the site. This comprises information concerning the IP address of the computer or proxy server, as the case may be, which requested a page or file. This further comprises the name of the page or file which was requested, the date, time, and duration of the request, the size of the transmitted data, your browser and operating system as well as the status of the request (for example request successful, file or page not found). This information is used solely for the purpose of statistical evaluation and will not be disclosed to third parties. Only cumulative and anonymized data in the form of statistics will be published on the server. We do not use or evaluate any personal data, except for data which you have specifically submitted to us through our contact questionnaire or our order forms.

Cookies and Web Beacons
Our banner customers may use web beacons on some pages on this website. A web beacon (also known as a web bug, pixel tag or clear GIF) is a graphic image (usually transparent and 1 pixel x 1 pixel in size) placed on a web page. Web beacons work in conjunction with cookies and are usually used to assess the effectiveness of particular promotional campaigns. So if such a cookie is already set, the cookie information will be updated. If no such cookie is existent, a new cookie will be set. The cookie information is anonymous, i.e. neither IP-address nor email-address of the user are stored. These cookies can be used to profile the use of web pages by the user. These cookies can also be used to display specific adds to the user.
This website uses the software "Google Analytics", a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so called “cookies”. These are small text files that are stored on your computer. The cookies allow an analyses on how our website is used by our visitors. The information generated by the cookies about your use of our website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the US. To protect your privacy on our website we have implemented a way to anonymize your IP-adress. Your IP address (the number allocated to your computer by your Internet provider) will therefore be shortened first by Google within the member states of the European Union or in countries which are contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The user profiles generated by Google Analytics are thus anonymised to prevent IP addresses from being traced to a specific user. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser will not be associated with any other data held by Google. This data will only be passed on to third parties on the basis of statutory regulations or within order data processing. In no case, Google will link your data with other data stored by Google.
You can refuse the use of Google Analytics by clicking the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website:
