A “cookie” is a small text file stored on your computer by web sites you have visited. Cookies are used to provide the visitors of web sites access to different features and functionalities. The information contained in the cookie can be used to monitor the way you are using the Internet.

Google Analytics

This web site makes use of the “Google Analytics” third party analytics tool to gather information about the way visitors use ths site. The “Google Analytics” tool makes use of cookies to collect anonymous (aggregate) information about the way visitors use the site, such as the number of page views, how visitors reached our site and how many times they have visited our site. This information is used to improve our visitors’ experience using our web site. The information generated by your visit is collected by Alphabet Inc. (formerly Google Inc.). Our site is using IP address anonymization for the “Google Analytics” tool. This means that the last octet of IPv4 IP addresses and the last 80 bits of IPv6 addresses are replaced by zeroes before they are sent to and collected by the third party “Google Analytics” service. The replacement takes place in the memory of your web browser and is never stored on disk or transmitted over the network. Therefore your IP address is never recorded permanently as a result of our use of “Google Analytics”.

YouTube

This web site makes use of the third party video streaming service “YouTube” to display videos. This site is using the “youtube-nocookies.com” domain name to display these videos. Per YouTube’s documentation this means that no cookies will be sent to your browser. Please note that on some older browsers which use Adobe Flash (instead of native HTML 5 video) to stream video it is possible that a different kind of cookies, called “Flash cookies”, will be stored on your computer for purposes of allowing you to stream video and keep track of your video preferences e.g. closed captioning, position in the video, volume level etc. We recommend that our visitors do NOT enable the Adobe Flash plugin on their browsers for reasons of privacy and security. All modern browsers support HTML5 video which is a safer alternative that does not rely on cookies to deliver video.
