Internet sites may use something called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our services more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. Most of the cookies that we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the use of cookies, can allow cookies only in individual cases, can accept cookies in certain cases or can generally disable cookies and enable the automatic deletion thereof when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website. Cookies that are required to carry out the electronic communication process or to provide certain functions that you wish to use (e.g. shopping cart function) are processed on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the storage of cookies for the technically correct and optimized provision of its services. Insofar as other cookies (such as cookies for analyzing your browsing behavior) are stored, they will be handled separately in this privacy policy.

Server log data

The site provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Browser type and browser version
  • User operating system
  • Referrer URL
  • Host name of the accessing computer
  • Time of server request

Mandatory statutory provisions – especially retention periods – remain unaffected.

This website uses functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer which allow your website usage to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your usage is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising.

IP Anonymization

We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the website operator, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google information.

Contract data processing

We have entered into a contract data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.

Demographic feature of Google Analytics

This website uses the “demographics feature” of Google Analytics. As a result, reports can be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be assigned to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google account or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section “Objection to data collection”.

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use the power of Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device capabilities of Google Ads (formerly AdWords) and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This feature allows you to link the advertising audiences created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google Ads (formerly AdWords) and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been customized based on your previous usage and browsing behavior on one end device (e.g. cell phone) may also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC). Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. That way, the same personalized advertising messages can appear on any device you sign in to with your Google account. To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users who are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion. You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google account using the following link: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/. The aggregation of the collected data in your Google account is based solely on your consent, which you can confirm or withdraw on Google (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR. For data collection operations that are not merged into your Google account (for example, because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the merge), the collection of the data is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest results from the fact that the website operator has an interest in the anonymous analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes. For more information and the privacy notice, see the Google privacy policy at:  https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website tags to be managed through an interface. The Google Tool Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used and no personal data is collected. The Google Tool Manager triggers other tags, which in turn collect data if necessary. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, it remains valid for all tracking tags if they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager.

Google Ads and Google conversion tracking

This website uses Google Ads (formerly AdWords). Google Ads is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”). As part of Google Ads, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is turned on. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser stores on the user’s computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for the personal identification of users. If the user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and ourselves are able to recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to the page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through Google Ads customers sites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversions tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can opt out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie in your internet browser under Preferences. You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. The storage of “conversion cookies” is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize both its website and its advertising. For more information about Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking, see the Google privacy policy:  https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the enabling of cookies and allow cookies only in individual cases, or accept cookies in certain cases, or generally exclude and enable the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. Disabling cookies may limit the functionality of this website.
