    We may statistically evaluate such anonymous information to optimise our website and the technology on which it is based. The legal basis for the processing of data is Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679), hereinafter referred to as the “GDPR”. Our legitimate interest is based on the purposes for the collection of data specified above. Under no circumstances do we use the data collected to draw any conclusions as to your identity.

  • Cookies

    Like many other websites, we also use so-called cookies. Cookies are small text files that are transferred to your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) by a website server and stored there. These cookies automatically provide us with specific data such as your IP address, the browser used, the operating system and your Internet connection. Cookies cannot be used to start programs or viruses or to transfer other malicious software onto your device. The information contained in the cookies enables us to make it easier for you to navigate our website and ensure that our web pages are displayed correctly. One of the reasons for using cookies is to make using our website a more pleasant experience for you. We therefore use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These cookies are automatically deleted when you leave our website. We additionally use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specific fixed period to optimise the user-friendliness of our website. If you revisit our website to use our services, these cookies automatically recognise that you have already visited our website and which details you entered and settings you used so that you do not have to enter or adjust them again. Under no circumstances are the data recorded by us passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent. You can generally also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set up to accept cookies. You can, however, generally use your browser settings to deactivate the use of cookies at any time. Please use the help functions of your Internet browser to find out how to change these settings. Please be aware that if you have deactivated the use of cookies, individual functions of our website may not work. The data processed by cookies are required for the specified purposes to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.
  • ANALYSIS AND TRACKING TOOLS

    The analysis and tracking measures listed below and used by us (hereinafter referred to as the “measures”) are implemented on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. We use these measures to guarantee that our website is designed to meet its visitors’ needs and is optimised continuously. We also use the measures to record statistics on the use of our website and for the purpose of optimising our website for you. These interests are legitimate interests as defined by the GDPR. The data processing purposes and data categories for each measure are specified in the information provided below. Google Analytics This website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer to enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is normally transmitted to and stored at a Google server in the USA. Google Analytics cookies are stored on the basis of Article 6 paragraph 1 lit. f GDPR. In this respect, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimise our website. Anonymisation of IP addresses: We have activated the “IP address anonymisation” function on our website. Google therefore abbreviates your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contractual states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmitting this information to the USA. Your full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated on this server in exceptional cases. Google uses this information to evaluate use of the website and produce reports on website activity on our behalf and to provide us with further services connected to the use of the website and the Internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data. Browser Plug-in You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. Please, however, be aware that by doing so, you may not be able to make full use of all of the functions of this website. You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie with regard to your use of the website (including your IP address) for Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Objecting to the collection of data: You can prevent the collection of your data by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: deactivate Google Analytics. This will store an opt-out cookie on your system that will prevent your data from being recorded when you visit this website in the future. You can find out more about how Google Analytics handles user data in Google’s Privacy Policy: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245. Contract data processing: We have concluded an agreement on contract data processing with Google and fully implement the strict requirements stipulated by the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
