We use Colliers Analytics
In order to improve our online offering we occasionally evaluate how our Website is used. We set up user statistics by means of Colliers Analytics. This is a Web analysis tool for the analysis of usage of the visitors on our Website. This data processing service is exclusively for the purposes of market research.
We do not set up any user profiles with Colliers Analytics, which can be directly allocated to persons. Web analysis in this sense means that statistical information on the usage of the Website is summarised – e.g. how often and how the page is visited. The results received from this are prepared exclusively for company specific marketing purposes and are not forwarded or sold to external companies.
If you are not in agreement with the fact, that your page access is included in the statistics, you have the option to delete the corresponding cookies in your browser. Also, in many modern browsers you are able to set them up to not include you in such statistics (so-called “do not track”). We adhere to this instruction. You are also free to get in touch with us directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We work with Google AdWords
Our Website uses Google Conversion-Tracking. Thus, if you have accessed our Website with the use of one of our Google Adwords-notifications, Google Adwords places a cookie on your computer. These cookies do not service to identify you personally and lose their validity after 30 days. We get information through this such as the total number of users who have clicked on our advertisement and have been passed on to a certain page (with a conversion-tracking-tag).
If you do not wish to take part in tracking, you may decline the placement of the cookie necessary for this. This works by means of an appropriate browser setting, which generally deactivates the automatic placement of cookies or you set your browser up, so that cookies directly from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked.

If you have deleted all the cookies in your browser, you must re-install the respective opt-out cookie.
We offer RSS Feeds on our Website (Knowledge leader feed)
RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is a special format for the exchange of information. It was created to publish news from Internet portals and has developed into a far-reaching standard for the automatic exchange of information. An RSS-Feed or Newsfeed (Engl. meaning news in-feed) consists of an XML-database, which prepares the purely structural content, - for example a new page – for instance news storage is composed of an XML-database, which maintains the pure structured content – for example a new page, but does not include any layout, navigation or other additional information.
With an RSS-Reader you can for example follow changes to a Website. You are always informed in a timely manner if the page changes – without yourself needing to surf the Website.
If you switch your computer on and set up an Internet connection, the RSS-reader automatically shows you the latest information on all Websites you have subscribed to and shows you a short summary in each case.
