1. What are cookies?
Cookies are small text files that are placed in the browser directories of your computer or mobile device when you visit our website. They may contain information about you, your preferences or your device and are primarily used to make our website work as you expect it to. The information does not usually identify you directly, but can give you a more personalised experience on our website. Most browsers are set to automatically accept cookies. You can disable all or part of the storage of cookies in your browser and have the option of deleting them from your terminal at any time. Please note that the use of our website without cookies may be limited. Please refer to your browser's help function for more information.
On the Pestalozzi website we use both persistent and session cookies. Session cookies save your entries, e.g. language settings, while you move from page to page within our website. These session cookies are deleted at the end of the session, usually after 2 weeks. Persistent cookies allow the website to remember your preferences and settings so that they are available the next time you visit the website. Persistent cookies are also deleted after a certain period of time, usually after 12 months.
The cookies used on the Pestalozzi website do not collect any personal data. They collect your IP address, which is not assigned to a specific person, but to a random identification number.
The Pestalozzi website uses Google Analytics with the "anonymize IP" extension, which means that the user's IP address is generally shortened by Google before it is transferred to the US, making this information anonymous.
The Pestalozzi website may use font libraries to ensure the correct delivery of content. Calling up a font library triggers a connection to the library provider and it cannot be excluded that the library provider collects data about this connection
