When accessing this Westernacher Consulting AG website, the accessing system’s IP address, the retrieved site, the date, time, data volume transferred, status data (error codes), browser and operating system of the retrieving system are stored by our provider in log files for security, maintenance and optimization purposes. This data is, however, only used to monitor operation and compile anonymous access statistics, and is deleted within 30 days. The data is not analyzed at a specific personal level, e.g. to create usage profiles.

While using the site, information on said usage is also collected by so-called browser cookies. These are text files stored on your data carrier, which save certain settings and data in order to exchange these with the website through your browser. The cookies usually contain domain names, information on the cookie’s age, and an ID code. This enables your device to be identified so that default settings can be made available immediately. Session cookies help recognize a device during a website visit.

The cookie ID is never linked with your personal details, such as name, email address or IP address. If you do not wish for cookies to be used on this website, you can set your browser so that storage is disabled.

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service run by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics also uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie is generally sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is saved. To avoid personal data from being transmitted, this website uses Google’s IP anonymization option. This means your IP address is shortened before being sent. Only in exceptional cases is the whole IP address sent to a Google server in the USA, where it is then shortened. Google will use this information on behalf of this website’s operator to analyze your website usage, compile reports on the website activities, and render additional services relating to website usage and Internet usage for the website operator. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly. Please note, however, that this will mean you may not be able to use all of this website’s functions to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from recording and processing the data generated by the cookie relating to your website usage (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
