In particular, this data is processed for the following purposes:

We do not use your data to draw conclusions about you personally. Information of this kind is statistically evaluated by us anonymously, if necessary, in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.

Google Analytics

If you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: “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 transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these web pages, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

For more information on terms of use and data protection, please visit https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/terms/gb/ and https://policies.google.com/?hl=en.

On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, of compiling reports on website activity and of providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The data sent by us and linked to cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached takes place automatically once a month.

Withdrawal of consent

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that if you do this you may not be able to experience the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) from Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across different browsers, we use Google Web Fonts of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, (hereinafter “Google”) on this website to display fonts.

Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq?hl=en and in Google’s privacy policy: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en.

Social plugins

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our website. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

Information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service provider via these plugins and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin also triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves by means of the social plugins or about their use.

We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider’s services is established and that at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. There is also the possibility that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.

We have integrated the social media buttons of the following companies on our website:

SSL encryption

To protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS.

Right to object for individual cases

You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR (data processing on the basis of legitimate interests); this also applies to profiling based on this provision within the meaning of Art. 4 (4) GDPR.
