Personal data

Personal data is data about you. It includes your name, address and e-mail address. You also do not have to divulge any personal data to be able to visit our website. In certain cases, we will require your name and address as well as additional information in order to be able to offer you the service you require.

The same is true if we provide you with information materials on request or if we answer your queries. We will always notify you of this in these cases. We also only save the data which you have sent to us automatically or voluntarily.

If you use one of our services, we only usually collect the data that is needed to be able to offer you our service. We may ask you for further information, but this is of a voluntary nature. Whenever we process personal data, we do this to enable us to offer you our service or to pursue our commercial goals.

Automatically saved non-personal data

If you visit our websites, we will save certain information for administrative and technical purposes. This includes: Type and version of the browser used, date and time of access and the IP address.

This data is anonymous and is only used for statistical purposes and to improve our internet and online services.

This anonymised data is stored - separately from personal data - on secure systems and cannot be allocated to individuals. This means that your personal data remains protected at all times.

Cookies

If you visit our website, we may save information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred by an internet server to your browser and stored on its hard drive. Only the internet protocol address is stored in this case – no personal data. The information that is stored in the cookies enables you to be recognised automatically on your next visit to our website and makes your use of the website easier.

You may of course also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to recognise you on your next visit, you can also reject the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to “Reject cookies”. You can find information on this procedure in your browser’s instructions. However, if you reject the use of cookies, this may lead to restrictions in the use of some areas of our website.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymisation function

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google  Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter “Google”, on our site. Google Analytics uses what are known as cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer and help to analyse your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies, for example time, location and number of visits to our website including your IP address will be transferred to Google in the USA and stored there.

We use Google Analytics on our website with the suffix "_gat._anonymizeIp". Your IP address will in this case be truncated within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and anonymised.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on the website activities for us and to provide further services associated with website and internet use. Google will also transfer this information to third parties if this is prescribed by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Google states that it will not use your IP address in connection with other data from Google. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to make full use of all functions of our website in this case.

Google also offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is recorded by Google on the websites you have accessed. The add-on informs the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information should be communicated on the website visit to Google Analytics. The deactivation add-on for the browser of Google Analytics does not prevent information being sent to us or to other web analysis services used by us however. Further information on the installation of the browser add-on can be found under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

If you visit our site with a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you must click on this link instead to stop tracking from Google Analytics within this website in future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser add-on. By clicking on the link, an opt-out cookie will be set in your browser that is only valid for this browser and domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted which means you have to click on the link again.

Our website uses the functions of Google Analytics in conjunction with the functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick across all devices. Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA is the provider.
This function enables the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics to be linked to the functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick across all devices. This means that interest-based, personalised advertising messages that were adapted to you depending on your earlier usage and surfing behaviour on an end device (e.g. mobile phone) are also displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).
If you have given Google your consent in your Google account, Google will connect your web and app browser activity to your Google account for this purpose. This enables the same personalised advertising messages to be displayed on every end device you are registered on with your Google account.
To support this function, Google Analytics records Google-authenticated IDs of the users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data in order to define and create target groups for advertising across all devices. If you have not approved the link between a Google account and the web or app browser, the ID and other data will not be collected using the remarketing function.
You can permanently object to remarketing/targeting across all devices by deactivating personalised advertising in your Google account; follow this link to do this:
