The web-analysis program Piwik (www.piwik.org), an application that promotes the needs-based design of web offerings, records users' visits to our website. The data collected are compiled into a user profile and stored under a pseudonym for purposes of advertising, market research and needs-based design of our online presentation (e.g. what is known as a ‘clickstream analysis'). ‘Persistent' cookies may be used for this purpose, but all of the data they collect are compiled and stored in the form of pseudonyms.
Cookies are small text files stored on a visitor's computer. There are two types of cookies. One type, the ‘session cookie', is removed from the hard drive once the browser session comes to an end. The other type, the ‘persistent cookies', remain on the user's computer and enable the page operator to identify the visitor the next time he or she calls up this particular website.
The data are not used to identify you personally, i.e. under no circumstances are the user profiles joined with data about the bearer of the pseudonym.
