Google Analytics

We make use of Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. In case of activation of the IP anonymisation, Google will truncate / anonymise the last octet of your IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it will be abbreviated. At the request of the website provider, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website provider. Your IP address will not be associated with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. In addition, you can prevent Google’s collection and use of the data (cookies and IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the following link:

Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code is supplemented by anonymizeIP to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (so called IP-masking). Further information concerning the terms and conditions of use and data privacy can be found at or at


Pardot cookies are also used. Pardot cookies track visitor and prospect activities on your website and landing pages by setting cookies on users web browsers. Cookies are configured to remember preferences, such as form fields, when a visitor returns to your site. Pardot also sets a cookie for logged-in users to maintain the session and to remember table filters.

Pardot sets first-party cookies for tracking purposes and sets third-party cookies for redundancy. Using first-party and third-party cookies together is standard in the marketing automation industry. Pardot cookies do not store personally identifying information, but rather a unique identifier only. Pardot sets first-party cookies on your tracker subdomains and Pardot domains. Pardot uses third-party cookies on https pages and when your account lacks a tracker subdomain configuration.

Microsoft / Bing

You can also make choices about the collection and use of your data by Microsoft. You can control your personal data that Microsoft has obtained, and exercise your data protection rights, by contacting Microsoft or using various tools we provide. In some cases, your ability to access or control your personal data will be limited, as required or permitted by applicable law. How you can access or control your personal data will also depend on which products you use.

For example, you can:

• Control the use of your data for interest-based advertising from Microsoft by visiting our opt-out page.

• Choose whether you wish to receive promotional emails, SMS messages, telephone calls and post/mail from Microsoft.

• Access and clear some of your data through the Microsoft privacy dashboard.

Not all personal data processed by Microsoft can be accessed or controlled via the tools above. If you want to access or control personal data processed by Microsoft that is not available via the tools above or directly through the Microsoft products you use, you can always contact Microsoft at the address in the How to contact us section or by using our web form.

What about other tracking technologies, like web beacons?

Cookies are not the only way to recognise or track visitors to a website and/or mobile app and/or platform. We may use other, similar technologies from time to time, like web beacons (sometimes called “tracking pixels” or “clear gifs”). These are tiny graphics files that contain a unique identifier that enable us to recognise when someone has visited our Websites and/or App and/or platform. In many instances, these technologies are reliant on cookies to function properly, and so declining cookies will impair their functioning.
