We require this information to understand your needs and provide you with a better service, and in particular for the following reasons:
- Internal record keeping.
- We may use the information to improve our products and services.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyze data about webpage traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to customer needs. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system.
We use collected/aggregated statistics regarding users/traffic and traffic providers. These statistics never contain any form of personal data. All data is anonymous. IP addresses are not saved in that database that stores data on user habits, so no information about you can be linked to your identity. Your IP address is only stored if you actively register on our website, for instance when you shop online or sign up for one of our services. It is stored for security reasons.
Overall, cookies help us provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us. You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the website.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transmitted to and stored on Google servers in the United States. However, in the event that the function which makes IPs anonymous has been activated on this website, Google will shorten your IP address within the United States of America. Only in exceptional cases are complete IP addresses transmitted to a Google server in the US before they are shortened. On the order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and provide other services relating to the use of the website and the internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser in line with Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You may prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data (including your IP address) created by the cookie in relation to your use of the website from being forwarded to and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:
In view of the discussion surrounding the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to advise that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and hence IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form so as to exclude a direct reference to a person.
The Google +1 button allows you to post information worldwide. The Google + 1 button will help you and others to get personalized content from Google and our partners. Google stores both the information that you + 1'd for a piece of content and information about the page you viewed when you clicked +1. Your + 1's may appear as clues along with your profile name and photo in Google services, such as in search results or in your Google profile, or elsewhere on websites and ads on the web.
Google records information about your + 1 activity to improve Google's services to you and others. To use the Google + 1 button, you need a globally visible, public Google profile that has at least the name chosen for the profile. This name will be used for all Google services. In some cases, this name may also replace a different name you used when sharing content through your Google Account. The identity of your Google Profile may be displayed to users who know your email address or have other identifying information from you.
