a. Cookies for improving the functionality of our websites
One reason Executives Unlimited employs cookies is to better understand how its website is used in order to enhance their attractiveness, content and functionality. Cookies help Executives Unlimited, for example, to determine what pages of its website are visited and what content interests users. These so-called “first-party cookies” record, in particular, the number of times a page is accessed, the number of website pages viewed, the amount of time spent on Executives Unlimited websites, the sequence of pages visited, the search terms that led you to Executives Unlimited’s site, the country, region and possibly the city from where the site is being accessed, the operating system and internet browser used, your language setting and how often Executives Unlimited’s website is accessed by mobile devices. Executives Unlimited also records mouse movements, clicks and scrolling to find out which areas of its website are of particular interest to visitors. The IP address of your computer, which is transmitted for technical reasons, is automatically rendered anonymous so that your identity cannot be determined.
During your first visit to Executives Unlimited’s website, a popup will appear at the upper edge of the screen asking you to confirm whether you agree to the utilization of cookies. The button provided can be used to agree. If you change your mind later on, simply delete all of the cookies stored by your browser.
b. Cookies for usage-based online advertising
Executives Unlimited reserves the right to use data obtained by analyzing the usage behavior of visitors to its websites via cookies in order to display specific content for certain Executives Unlimited services on Executives Unlimited’s website so as to match your interests.

Third-party cookies used by Executives Unlimited
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google Analytics uses a specific form of “cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer allowing analysis of your website usage. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually sent to a Google server in the US where it is stored.
Executives Unlimited would like to point out that the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” has been added to Google Analytics on this website to ensure anonymous recording of IP addresses, known as “IP masking”). Google IP anonymization on this website truncates your IP address within the EU and EEC territory. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and truncated there.
On our behalf, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other website and internet usage-related services for us as the website operator.
