The use of cookies serves on the one hand to make the use of our offer more pleasant for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These are automatically deleted when you leave our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain fixed period of time.

The data processed by cookies is required for the purposes mentioned above to safeguard our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 Sentence 1 lit. f) DSGVO.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or so that a message always appears before a new cookie is created.

5. Analysis tools/tracking tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 letter f) DSGVO. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet the needs of our customers and is continuously optimised. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to record the use of our website statistically and evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as justified in the sense of the aforementioned regulation.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be taken from the corresponding tracking tools.

a) Google Analytics

For the purpose of designing our pages to meet your needs and continuously optimizing them, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see section 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

- Browser type/version,
- the operating system used,
- Referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
- Time of the server request,

are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and the design of these Internet pages in line with requirements. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are made anonymous, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

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 use 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) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on ( 

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially in the case of browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your information when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.

You can find further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics in the Google Analytics Help (  


b) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to record the use of our website statistically and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords sets a cookie (see point 4) on your computer, if you have reached our website via a Google ad.

These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords client's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the client can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page.

Each Adwords client receives a different cookie. As a result, cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Adwords clients. The information collected through the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Adwords clients who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords advertisers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you may refuse to accept cookies by changing your browser setting to refuse all cookies, including disabling the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "". Google's privacy policy for conversion tracking can be found here (  

c) Google Tag Manager

We also use Google Tag Manager, which allows you to manage analysis and tracking tags from one interface. This works to the extent that the Tag Manager detects a page load. According to the configuration, this loading of the website will trigger a Google Analytics tag. The data from this tag is then sent back to the Google Analytics servers so that a pseudonymised evaluation of user behaviour can be carried out. No cookies are set by the Google Tag Manager and no personal data is collected. You can find more information on terms of use and data protection at and

d) Google DoubleClick

We use Google's DoubleClick feature on our websites to measure website usage and to enable us, Google and other advertisers who work with DoubleClick to serve you user-relevant advertising. For this purpose, a cookie is installed on the hard drive of your computer. This cookie assigns a pseudonymous identification number to your browser and collects information about the advertisements displayed in your browser and how they are accessed. The information collected by the cookie about your use of websites is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Based on the information collected, your browser is assigned to categories of interest. These categories are used to serve interest-based advertising.

In addition to changing your browser settings, you can also use a browser plug-in to permanently disable the DoubleClick cookie. The plug-in will preserve your opt-out settings for that browser, even if you delete all cookies. You can obtain the browser plug-in for permanent deactivation here:  

By using our website, you consent to the use of the DoubleClick cookie and thus to the collection, storage and use of your usage data in the manner described above for the aforementioned purpose. Furthermore, you agree that your data will be stored in cookies beyond the end of the browser session and can, for example, be called up again the next time you visit a website. You can revoke this consent at any time with effect for the future by deleting the DoubleClick cookie and permanently deactivating it.
