Use of cookies

In order for this Internet portal to function properly, we sometimes store small files - so-called cookies - on your device. This is common on most large websites.

What are cookies?

A cookie is a small text file that a website leaves on your computer, tablet computer, or smartphone when you visit it. This allows the site to "remember" certain inputs and settings (such as login, language, font size, and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to redo them every time you visit and navigate the portal. Various cookies are used on the pages of the pma website.



To protect your requests via the Internet form, we use the ReCaptcha service from Google Inc. (see above). The query serves to differentiate whether the input is made by a human being or whether it is misused by automated, mechanical processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the ReCaptcha service to Google. For this purpose your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of 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 and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of ReCaptcha is not combined with other data from Google. These data are subject to the differing data protection regulations of Google.
