What cookies do we use?

In addition to the aforementioned data, cookies are stored on your computer when you use our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard disk in the browser you use and through which certain information flows to the place that sets the cookie (here by us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective overall. The legal basis of this is Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera f GDPR.

Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session, i.e. after closing your browser (so-called “session cookies”). Other cookies remain on your terminal and enable us to recognize your browser during your next visit (“persistent cookies”). You can set your browser in such a way that you are informed about the placement of cookies and decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or generally. If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be limited.

(1) Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, Google will reduce your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website use and internet usage.

The IP address transmitted by your browser within the framework of Google Analytics is not merged 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 so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are further processed in abbreviated form, so as to rule out personal references. If the data collected about you has a personal reference, it will be excluded immediately and the personal data will be deleted without delay.

We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. Using the statistics collected, we can improve our offerings and make them more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the United States, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera f GDPR.

Information on third-party provider: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland, Fax: +353 (1) 436 1001. User terms and conditions: http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html; data protection overview: http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/learn/privacy.html; and data protection declaration: http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

We use the Google Tag Manager to manage the tags, triggers and variables that our website passes to Google Analytics. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage web page tags through a single interface. The Tool Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) is a cookieless domain and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access these data. If deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in effect for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. The use policy for the Google Tag Manager can be found here: www.google.com/tagmanager/use-policy.html.

(2) Google Adwords

We use the offerings of Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (“Google Adwords”) on external websites. We can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (note that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

Based on the marketing tool used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you of the following according to our level of knowledge: By integrating AdWords, Google receives the information that you have retrieved the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.

You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly; in particular by suppressing third-party cookies, you will not receive any ads from third-party providers; b) by deactivating cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser so that cookies are blocked from the domain www.googleadservices.com (https://www.google.de/settings/ads), whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating tracking in your Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome browsers under the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of these offerings.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Article 6(1), Sentence 1, Litera f GDPR.
