  • IP address (anonymized by shortening)
  • Cookies (to distinguish between different visitors)
  • URL previously visited, so-called referrer (if transmitted by the browser)
  • Name and version of the operating system
  • Name, version and language setting of the browser
  • URLs visited on this website
  • times of page views
  • Type of HTML requests
  • Screen resolution and color depth
  • Browser-supported techniques and formats (e.g. cookies, Java, Flash, PDF, WindowsMedia, QuickTime, Realplayer, Director, SilverLight, Google Gears)

These technical data are evaluated solely for statistical purposes (visitor numbers and page popularity) in order to improve our Internet presence. This anonymous data is of course stored separately from personal information and does not allow us to draw any conclusions about the natural person behind it. The IP address is made anonymous during storage (the last two octets of the IP address are set to 000,000).
