Use of Cookies
“Cookies” are used in some areas of our website to enable us to provide you with more personalized services.  Cookies are identifiers that can be sent from a Web server to your computer in order to identify you for the duration of your visit. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies.

The following types of cookies are used, with their scope and functions explained below:

•    Transient cookies (see “a”)
•    Persistent cookies (see “b”)

a) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. These are mainly session cookies. These store a “session ID,” which is used to assign various requests submitted by your browser to a single session. As a result, your computer can be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.

b) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a set period, which varies from cookie to cookie. You can delete cookies at any time using the security settings of your browser.

You can configure your browser settings as desired and, for example, decline third-party cookies or all cookies. Please note that you may then be unable to use all functions of this website.

Google Analytics and Google Remarketing
This website uses Google Analytics and Google Remarketing.  These are services provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google uses “cookies,” which are text files stored on your computer that enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transferred to, and stored on, a Google server in the United States.

We do not transmit IP addresses in full, but instead remove the final set of numbers (which denotes the address of the terminal device). This reliably eliminates the otherwise theoretical possibility of identifying individuals.

Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities for the website operator, and to provide other services connected with use of the website and the Internet. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required to do so by law or where these parties process the data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by configuring the settings of your browser software accordingly; please note, however, that you may then be unable to use all functions of this website in full.
By using this website, you give your consent for Google to process the data collected about you in the manner outlined above and for the aforementioned purpose.
You can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link:
