Data processing in connection with online services

Our online services use various methods to obtain information about you, your surfing patterns and your device. To do this we access your web browser memory and store "identifiers" (such as cookies) there. This allows us, for a specific length of time, to recognise you and your device. We differentiate between the following two processing purposes.


1. Integral to the use of our online services

What´s the point of this? These forms of data processing are integral to you being able to use our website.

Can you prevent this data processing? No. Without this data processing you will not be able to use our online services. 

 

2. Web analysis

What´s the point of this? We use web analysis tools to collect statistical usage and user behaviour data in relation to our website so that we can optimise our online offerings: Which website has a person come from? Which sub-pages were visited? How often and for how long was the website visited? Where did the user click through to? How far down did the user scroll? How was the mouse moved?

Can you prevent this data processing? Yes, you can. You can prevent these sorts of analysis by changing your data protection settings.

Would you like to change your consent?
