Anonymous information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us in order to optimize our Internet presence and the technology behind it.


Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. This automatically provides us with certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system and your connection to the Internet.
