4. Cookies

Our webpage uses cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in a computer system via an Internet browser.

Many Internet sites and servers use cookies. Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This allows visited Internet sites and servers to differentiate the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognized and identified using the unique cookie ID. We do not gain immediate information about your identity by using cookies.

Through the use of cookies, we can provide the users of this website with more user-friendly services that would not be possible without the cookie setting. We use so called session cookies to determine that you have already visited individual pages of our website. Those are deleted automatically after leaving the site.

We also use temporary cookies that are stored for a given time on the accessing system to optimize usability. When accessing the site again you can be recognized and do not have to provide certain information repeatedly.

We also use cookies to acquire statistical data about website usage and to optimize our site (see also section 5). These cookies allow us to recognize if you already visited our web page on repeat visits. These cookies will be automatically deleted after a given time.

The data processed by the use of cookies is required for the given reasons for our legitimate interests and the legitimate interests of third parties according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, already set cookies may be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. If the data subject deactivates the setting of cookies in the Internet browser used, not all functions of our website may be entirely usable.

5. Analysis Tools


The tracking measures discussed in detail below are performed according to Art. 6 Abs. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

By using these tracking measures we want to ensure a continuous improvement and optimization of our website. We also use tracking measures to perform a statistical survey of the web site usage and analyze the data to optimize the site for you. These interests are legitimate for the purpose of the previously discussed regulation.

Google Analytics:

On this website, the controller has integrated the component of Google Analytics (with the anonymizer function). Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analytics is the collection, gathering, and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. A web analysis service collects, inter alia, data about the website from which a person has come (the so-called referrer), which sub-pages were visited, or how often and for what duration a sub-page was viewed. Web analytics are mainly used for the optimization of a website and in order to carry out a cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc. (, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, United States.

For the web analytics through Google Analytics the controller uses web address masking. By means of this application the IP address of the Internet connection of the data subject is abridged by Google and anonymized when accessing our websites from a Member State of the European Union or another Contracting State to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyze the traffic on our website. Google uses the collected data and information, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website and to provide online reports, which show the activities on our websites, and to provide other services concerning the use of our Internet site for us.

Google Analytics places a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. The definition of cookies is explained above. With the setting of the cookie, Google is enabled to analyze the use of our website. With each call-up to one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and into which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the data subject will automatically submit data through the Google Analytics component for the purpose of online advertising and the settlement of commissions to Google. During the course of this technical procedure, the enterprise Google gains knowledge of personal information, such as the IP address of the data subject, which serves Google, inter alia, to understand the origin of visitors and clicks, and subsequently create commission settlements.

The cookie is used to store personal information, such as the access time, the location from which the access was made, and the frequency of visits of our website by the data subject. With each visit to our Internet site, such personal data, including the IP address of the Internet access used by the data subject, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass these personal data collected through the technical procedure to third parties.

The data subject may, as stated above, prevent the setting of cookies through our website at any time by means of a corresponding adjustment of the web browser used and thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such an adjustment to the Internet browser used would also prevent Google Analytics from setting a cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, cookies already in use by Google Analytics may be deleted at any time via a web browser or other software programs.

In addition, the data subject has the possibility of objecting to a collection of data that are generated by Google Analytics, which is related to the use of this website, as well as the processing of this data by Google and the chance to preclude any such. For this purpose, the data subject must download a browser add-on under the link and install it. This browser add-on tells Google Analytics through a JavaScript, that any data and information about the visits of Internet pages may not be transmitted to Google Analytics. The installation of the browser add-ons is considered an objection by Google. If the information technology system of the data subject is later deleted, formatted, or newly installed, then the data subject must reinstall the browser add-ons to disable Google Analytics. If the browser add-on was uninstalled by the data subject or any other person who is attributable to their sphere of competence, or is disabled, it is possible to execute the reinstallation or reactivation of the browser add-ons.

As an alternative to the browser add on, especially for the use on mobile devices, you can disable the data acquisition by Google Analytics by clicking this: deaktivate Google Analytics. An Opt-out-Cookie will be placed on your system that disables the automatic acquisition of data by Google Analytics on this webpage. The Opt-out-Cookie is only valid for this browser and this website and is stored on your device. After deleting cookies on your system you have to set this cookie again.

Further information concerning the protection of personal data in the context of Google analytics is e.g. provided by the Google Analytics Help page: (
