To increase the loading speed of our websites, we use Google's CDN (Content Delivery Network) to load this library. Even if your browser already has a copy of the jQuery library in the browser's cache, it connects to the Google server and sends your IP address to Google. If you are also logged in to Google with an existing user account while visiting our websites, Google may also be able to assign the visit of our websites to your user behavior. In addition, other cookies can be sent by Google to your browser. We have no influence on this procedure and also do not receive any information from Google about the transmitted content.
