For this purpose, you must generally provide further personal data which we use to provide the respective service and to which the data above processing principles apply.

Cookies

When you use our website, cookies are stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your hard drive assigned to the browser you are using and through which certain information flows to the location that sets the cookie. Cookies cannot execute programs or transmit viruses to your computer. They serve to make the website more user-friendly and effective.

You can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. In general, you can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via the settings of your browser. We also recommend that you regularly delete your cookies and browser history manually.

Contact form

If you contact us by e-mail or contact form, you give us your voluntary consent to establish contact. For this purpose, a valid e-mail address is required. This is used to assign the request and then answer it. The information provided will be stored to process the inquiry and for any follow-up questions. Your data can also be stored in a customer relationship management system (a CRM system).

Personal data will be deleted after your request has been dealt with.

Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by 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 the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to 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 where it will be shortened. 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 other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

(3) 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 Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp().” This shortens the processing of IP addresses, thus excluding the possibility of personal references. If the data collected about you is related to a person, this is banned immediately, and the personal data is deleted immediately.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyze and regularly improve the use of our website. The statistics obtained allow us to improve our services and make them more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Para. 1 S. 1 lit. F DSGVO.

Google AdWords

We used the online marketing service Google Adwords based on our legitimate interests. Google AdWords is an online advertising program of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement, providing a guarantee of compliance with European privacy laws – https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active

When using the Google AdWords service, which we use to place ads in the Google advertising network, we use conversion tracking. When you click on an advertisement placed with Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your computer/device. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking.

You can prevent cookies from being stored by setting your browser software accordingly. In addition, you can opt-out of interest-based ads on Google and interest-based Google ads on the web (within the Google display network) in your browser by clicking the “Opt-out” button at http://www.google.de/settings/ads or by opt-out at http://www.aboutads.info/choices/ You can find further information on your settings in this regard and data protection at Google at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/?fg=1.

We also use the remarketing function within the Google AdWords service. The remarketing feature allows us to present advertisements based on the interests of users of our website on other websites within the Google advertising network. For this purpose, the interaction of the users on our website is analyzed, e.g., which offers the user is interested in to be able to display targeted advertising to the users on other pages even after visiting our website. For this purpose, Google stores a number in the browsers of users who visit certain Google services or websites in the Google display network. This number, known as a “cookie,” is used to track the visits of these users. This number is used to uniquely identify a web browser on a particular computer and not to identify a person; no personal information is stored. You can deactivate the use of cookies by Google by following the following link and downloading and installing the plug-in provided there: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. You can find more information about Google Remarketing and Google’s privacy policy at http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.

Google Webfonts – Script Libraries

To present the contents of our website appealingly, we use font libraries from Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). These web fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, the content will be displayed in a standard font.

Operator’s privacy policy: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
