We place cookies to make our website user-friendlier. A few elements of our website make it necessary to be able to recognize visiting browsers after page changes.
We use the following cookies:
This cookie is set to identify visitors but does not contain any personal information and is created on the basis of a random routine. In order for Google Analytics to be able to determine whether two visits were made by the same user, a unique identifier must be sent with each visit that can be used to permit recognition of the individual user. The analytics.js library does this by using a ‘Client ID’, which is a unique, randomly generated string of numbers that is stored on the user’s computer by the user’s web browser so that subsequent visits to a website by the same user can be associated with that user. Analytics.js uses a single standard first-party cookie called _ga to store Client IDs.
These cookies are set by Google Analytics which is a simple tool that helps us measure how users interact with our website. As a user navigates between web pages, Google Analytics records information about the page a user has visited, for example the URL of the page. The cookies themselves are used to ‘remember’ what a user has done on previous pages and interactions with our website.
These cookie registers a unique ID that is used to generate statistical data on how the visitor uses the website.
The following data are stored and transmitted in the cookies:
(1) Language settings
(2) Log-in information
This makes it possible to obtain the following data:
(1) Search terms entered
(2) Use of website functionality: Data on users who initiate a download
Technical means are used to pseudonymize the data of users collected in this manner. That makes it impossible to use the data to identify visiting users. Such data are not stored together with user’s other personal data.
We need cookies for the following applications:
(1) to obtain language settings
(2) Login in the download area
The user data collected by these cookies are not used to create user profiles.
Analytics cookies are used to improve the quality of our website and its content. They tell us how our website is being used so we can continually make improvements. More precise descriptions of the function and purpose of cookies can be found in section V.1 above.
These purposes also give rise to our legitimate interest in processing personal data pursuant to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR.
