Storage and protection of data
This website uses SiteCatalyst, a web analysis service provided by Adobe. SiteCatalyst relies on so-called cookies. The information about the use of this website collected in this manner is stored on Adobe servers in Ireland. It serves in the analysis of user behavior on our website in order to better adapt the site to user needs.

When you visit our website, we save your IP address, the web pages you access on our site, the date and duration of your visit, and other information. However, we do not collect any personal information that provides an indication of the users’ identity.

Clear GIFs (also referred to as web beacons) are used in combination with cookies in order to give website operators a better understanding of how visitors interact with the website. A clear GIF is typically a transparent graphic image (usually 1 pixel x 1 pixel) that is placed on a website. The use of a clear GIF allows the website to measure the actions of the visitor opening the page that contains the clear GIF. Adobe SiteCatalyst measures visitor behavior using clear GIFs in order to improve the user experience and make it easier to manage web content.
