In generating web statistics, we use the Omniture SiteCatalyst web analytics solution by Adobe (“Site Catalyst”). SiteCatalyst gathers anonymous data that contributes to understanding and analysing our visitors’ browsing experience. These include, for example, relevant visitor information about referring domains, browser types used, operating system software (such as Windows XP as compared to Windows 7, for instance), screen resolution, colour function, plug-ins, language settings, cookie settings, search engine terms and Java Script activations. Moreover, SiteCatalyst documents the number of visits, the paths as well as the time spent on websites and web pages.
This information is only transmitted to us as accumulated data that expresses trends in the general use of the internet or particular websites, and is thus not personal data. As Omniture does not receive any personal information on our website’s visitors, an attribution, combination or connection of anonymous information with your data is not possible.
