This website uses Google Analytics' demographic features. This allows reports to be generated containing
statements about the age, gender, and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based
advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any
specific individual person. You can disable this feature at any time by adjusting the ads settings in your

We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our websites. This service is provided by

been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of
the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the
website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP
address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data
collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that
