Demographic characteristics by Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics’ “demographic characteristics” function. This allows for reports comprising information on age, gender and interests of the website visitors. Said data originates from Google’s interest-related advertisement as well as from visitors’ data provided by third parties. Said data cannot be associated with a specific person.

Our website uses the Google Analytics’ Remarketing function in combination with the functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick, which are functions across any devices. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This function allows for the advertisement target groups created by Google Analytics Remarketing to be associated with the Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick functions across any devices. This is how interest-related and personalised advertisement contents which were customised to you based on your past usage and surfing behaviour on a terminal device (e.g. mobile telephone) to also be shown on another of your terminal devices (e.g. tablet or computer). Where you have given the respective consent, Google will connect your web and app browser history to your Google account for this purpose. This is how the same personalised marketing content may be advertised on all of your terminal devices on which you are logged in with your Google account. To support this function, Google Analytics records the Google-authenticated user ID, which is temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to identify and create target groups for the display of advertisement across all devices. You may permanently object to the remarketing/targeting across all devices by opting out of the personalised advertisement in your Google account; to this end, follow the link below: www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/
