5.            Cookies

We use cookies on our website. These are small text files which are automatically created by your browser and stored on your end device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our website. Cookies do not cause any damage to your end device, do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information relating to the specific end device used in each case is stored in the cookie. This does not mean, however, that we directly receive information relating to your identity.

The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make it easier for you to use our services. In this context, we use session cookies to identify whether you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automatically deleted when you leave our website.

We also use temporary cookies in order to optimise our website’s user-friendliness; these are stored on your end device for a specific period. If you re-visit our website in order to take advantage of our services, the website automatically recognises that you are returning and will remember your data and settings in order to save you from entering these a second time.

The data processed using cookies are required for the stated purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in line with Art. 6(1) sentence 1(f) GDPR.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. You can, however, configure your browser such that cookies are not stored on your computer or a notice appears every time a new cookie is created. Full deactivation of cookies may, however, prevent you from being able to use all the functions on our website.

In addition to technically necessary cookies (essential cookies) that ensure the functionality of our website, we also use cookies on our website that enable us to track and analyze the usage behavior of our website visitors in order to optimize our online offering and display personalized advertising. In some cases, these are also cookies that are set by third-party providers (third-party cookies).
By clicking on the “I only accept essential cookies” button shown below, you have the option of rejecting the use of technically unnecessary cookies. You can view your selection of permitted cookies at any time under “Individual cookie settings” and revoke or change them with effect for the future.

Reference to data processing in the USA 

By clicking on the button “I accept all cookies”, you also agree according to Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO that your data will be transmitted to the USA and processed there. According to the assessment of the European Court of Justice, the USA does not guarantee a level of data protection that meets the European GDPR standards. In particular, it is easier and more extensive for US authorities to access personal data compared to authorities in the EU. There is thus a risk that your data collected in connection with your visit to our website may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly even without any legal remedy.

6.            Google Analytics

This website uses the Google Analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). The service uses cookies. By saving cookies on your computer, Google can analyse how you use our website. The information on your use of our website that is created by the cookies, together with your IP address, will generally be transmitted to and stored on a Google Inc. server in the USA.

If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will, however, be anonymised within the Member States of the European Union and in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP addresses are transferred to a Google server in the USA and anonymised there in exceptional cases only. Google will use this information on the instructions of this website’s operator to analyse your use of the website, to prepare reports on website activities and to provide other services relating to website use for the website operator.

This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “anonymizeIp()”. This means that the IP addresses will be processed in an anonymised form. Thus, the data cannot be directly linked to a particular individual.

Reference to data processing in the USA by Google

By clicking on the button “I accept all cookies”, you also agree according to Art. 49 para. 1 p. 1 lit. a DSGVO that your data will be transmitted to the USA and processed there. According to the assessment of the European Court of Justice, the USA does not guarantee a level of data protection that meets the European GDPR standards. In particular, it is easier and more extensive for US authorities to access personal data compared to authorities in the EU. There is thus a risk that your data collected in connection with your visit to our website may be processed by US authorities for control and monitoring purposes, possibly even without any legal remedy.

You can prevent cookies from being stored on your device by making the appropriate settings in your browser. It cannot, however, be guaranteed that you will be able to access all functions on this website without limitation if your browser does not support cookies. You can also prevent the data created by the cookie relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
