The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. If the IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will previously be truncated by Google within the EU member states or EEA member states. Only in exceptional cases will the IP address be transferred to Google on a server in the United States and thereafter be truncated. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address that was transmitted by your browser will not be combined by Google with any other data.

Additional information thereto is available here (general information to Google Analytics and privacy). This Website uses Google Analytics with its extension code “gat._anonymizeIp()“ so that IP addresses will therefore only be processed in a shortened form to prevent persons from being identified.

Bing

Bing is a web search engine owned and operated by Microsoft which we use in advertising purposes to drive traffic to our website, raise brand awareness, and increase our online sales as a part of our marketing plan. Microsoft collects data to operate effectively and provide you the best experiences with their products. You provide some of this data directly, such as when you create a Microsoft account, administer your organization’s licensing account, submit a search query to Bing, register for a Microsoft event, speak a voice command to Cortana, upload a document to OneDrive, purchase an MSDN subscription, sign up for Office 365, or contact them for support. They get some of it by recording how you interact with their products by using technologies like cookies and receiving error reports or usage data from software running on your device.
