They are downloaded from the websites you visit to your computer or mobile device. This enables the website to recognize your device when you use the website and also when you return at a later time. This helps you to make it easier to use the pages and to personalize them.

11. Use of script libraries – Google Web Fonts

In order to display the contents of our website correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google Web Fonts are cached in your browser to avoid multiple downloads. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content will be displayed in a default font.

When you access the script or font libraries, a connection to the library operator is automatically established. It is theoretically possible, but currently unclear whether and for what purposes the operator of such libraries also collects data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

12. Use of Google Analytics  

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC (“Google”).

The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. We have also added the code “anonymizeIP” to this website, which guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data is collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

On behalf of the operator of our website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and the Internet.
