Cookies Policy for website visitors

This website uses cookies in order to deliver a better browsing experience and to collect information on the use of the site by visitors.

Cookies are short text strings exchanged between servers and web clients. They are used to perform automatic authentication, session tracking and the storage of specific information about the users/visitors accessing the server. This website uses cookies for the following purposes:

– Technically necessary cookies for a user-friendly configuration of the website;
– Third party-cookies for analysis of the users’ surfing behaviour.

Technically necessary cookies
Certain operations cannot be performed without the use of cookies, which in such cases are thus technically necessary. Technically necessary cookies, by way of example, include the cookie that recognizes the web session and keeps it active for the user visiting the website and the cookie that allows recognition of a specific user following log in.

Lyra uses such cookies only to optimize users’ browsing experience. This technology does not, in any case, allow device storage of user data, credentials or other information in order to maintain website security levels.

The legal basis for the processing of data using technically necessary cookies is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the processing lies in the maintenance and further development of the user-friendliness of the website.

Cookies for analysis tools
We also use cookies on our website that enable an anonymous analysis of the surfing behavior of our website users. When users visit our website, we ask them to consent to the use of such cookies. If you give your consent, the following processing takes place:

Google Analytics with IP anonymization

The website will then use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. It is possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across several devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyze a user’s activities across devices. The information generated by the cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visit to the website, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.

We use Google Analytics on our website with the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp”. In this case, Google will already reduce your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby make it anonymous. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services related to website and Internet use. Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf. Google will, according to its own statements, under no circumstances associate your IP address with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of our website.

Google also offers a deactivation add-on for the most popular browsers, giving you more control over what information Google collects about the websites you visit. The add-on informs Google Analytics’ JavaScript (ga.js) that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services that we may use. For more information on installing the browser add-on, click on the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

If you visit our site via a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you must instead click this Link to prevent tracking by Google Analytics within this website in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on mentioned above. By clicking the link, an opt-out cookie is set in your browser that is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.

The data collected within the framework of Google Analytics is automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached is carried out automatically once a month by means of a corresponding setting on Google.
