Opting Out of User Tracking with a No-tracking Cookie
As explained on our page on privacy, we normally do some kind of web tracking for statistical purposes – however, never in a way which would allow us or anyone else to identify individual users. Therefore, we cannot imagine any detrimental effect of the user tracking on our users. We take privacy issues very serious and do our best to act accordingly.
For those who nevertheless wish to avoid even the fully anonymized user tracking, we offer the option to disable our tracking, i.e., suppress storing the anonymized user ID and user agent. One way of doing this is setting a no-tracking cookie in your browser, using this web page. Such a cookie stores no other information than that you would like to suppress the user tracking, and communicates that (and no other information on yourself or your computer) to our server in each following page request. It works only for the browser in which it has been set; for any other browser or computer you may use, that procedure would have to be performed separately.
The no-tracking cookie is not set in your browser.
For creating or removing that cookie, you can always use the following links:
You can also call this page again to check the cookie status. In case that the cookie then turns out not to exist even though you have set it, this is probably because your browser has been set not to accept cookies.
Please note that the no-tracking cookie may not only be deleted using this page, but also in your browser settings or by certain browser add-ons (in some cases automatically).
