Therefore, we analyze anonymously collected data and information statistically, with the aim of increasing the data protection and data security of our enterprise, to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process, and to enhance visitor experience and content delivery. The anonymous data of the server log files are stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.

Tracking Tools

1. Google (Universal) and Matomo Analytics

The website might use Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. (www.google.com), and/or Matemo Analytics (https://matomo.org/). Google (Universal)/Matemo Analytics uses methods that allow an analysis of the use of the website, such as "cookies". The information about the use of the website is generally transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. By activating the IP anonymization on this website the IP address in the Member States of the European Union or in other States Parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area as well in Switzerland is shortened prior to transmitting to the US. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The anonymized IP address transmitted by Google Analytics from the user’s browser is not merged with any other data from Google. With Matemo, however, this data is only stored locally on the server.

The information is used to evaluate the use of the website in order to compile reports about the activities on the website and to provide other services associated with the use of the website for the purposes of market research and the appropriate design of the website.

Users can prevent the recording of data (including the IP address) generated by the cookie and related to the website from being accessed by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in that is available under the following link:

As an alternative to the browser plug-in, users can click this link to prevent the recording by Google Analytics on the website in the future. Thereby, an opt-out cookie is stored on the user’s device. If the users delete cookies, the link must be clicked on again.

2. Google AdWords Conversion-Tracking

On this website a so-called Conversion-Tracking Code of Google Inc., USA, might be installed. This code or tag allows to track the conversion of our Google AdWords campaigns. As soon as a user lands on a Google AdWords or any other advertisement of us in the Google network, a temporary cookie is installed in the browser of the respective user. When this user continues to our website, the code or tag on the website recognizes the cookie and is able to forward the information about this conversion to Google. Additional information about the conversion-tracking can be found here.

Users may prevent this tracking by rejecting or de-activating cookies.

Users which have a Swiss residency or domicile please note that there are surveillance measures by the US authorities that generally enable the storage of all personal data of all persons whose data have been transferred from Switzerland to the US. This is done without differentiation, restriction or objective criterion, which would make it possible to limit the access of the US authorities to the data and their subsequent use to very specific, strictly limited purposes, access to such data as well as their use. We also point out that in the US there are no legal remedies available to the persons concerned from Switzerland which allow them to gain access to the data concerning them and to correct or eradicate them, or no effective judicial protection against general access rights from US authorities.

Use of Google Maps

Our website might use Google Maps to present a site plan. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). By using our websites, you provide your consent to the recording, processing and use of automatically collected data by Google, one of its representatives or third-party providers. Information on the conditions of use for Google Maps can be found under the Google Maps/Google Earth Additional Terms of Service.

Use of Google reCAPTCHA

Our website might use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google Inc. (Google) to protect your submissions via online forms on this site. This plugin checks if you are a person in order to prevent certain website functions from being (ab)used by spam bots. The plugin query includes sending the IP address to Google, as well as any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose, your input will be communicated to and used by Google. By using reCaptcha, you agree that the content you have identified may be used in the digitization of old works. However, if IP anonymization has been activated on this website, your IP address will be previously truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of this service. The IP address provided by your browser when using reCaptcha will not be merged with any other data by Google. This data is subject to the data protection regulations of Google.

Use of YouTube and other video plug-ins

Use of Forums and chat
