5. Cookies

We use cookies on our site. These are small files that your browser automatically creates and that are stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies do not harm your device, do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malicious software.

In each cookie information resulting in connection with the specific terminal used is stored. However, this does not mean that this immediately lets us know your virtual identity.

On the one hand, using cookies helps us to optimize user friendliness of our site. In this context we use the so-called session cookies to determine that you have visited individual pages on our website. The related cookies are automatically deleted after you leave our page.

As a further measure to improve user friendliness of our site, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time. If you visit our site again, your previous inputs and settings will automatically be used, which frees you from their repeated input.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically monitor the use of our website and to evaluate the resulting data for the purpose of optimizing our offer (see Section 6). This type of cookie allows us to keep track of users who repeatedly visit our site. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined time.

The data processed by cookies serve to safeguard our legal interests as well as the legal interests of third parties according to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO for the purposes mentioned.

Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser to not store any cookies on your computer or to indicate when a new cookie is created. However, disabling cookies completely may prevent you from being able to use all the features of our website.

6. Analysis Tools

a) Tracking tools
The tracking measures we use are listed below and are all based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. These tracking measures allow us to ensure a needs- based design as well as the continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate the resulting data for the purpose of optimizing our offer. The above objectives are justified in the context of the aforementioned provision. A listing of the respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

i) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
To statistically monitor the use of our website and to evaluate the resulting data for the purpose of optimizing our website, we also use Google conversion tracking. In doing so, Google Adwords will set a cookie (see paragraph 5) 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 customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers are informed about the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

If you do not want to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the required setting of a cookie - for example, via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "".

7. Google Analytics

For the needs-based design of our website we use the web analysis tool "Google Analytics". Google Analytics creates usage profiles basing on pseudonyms. For this purpose, permanent cookies are saved on your terminal device and read by us. This enables us to recognize returning visitors and count them as such.
In the scope of Google Analytics we are supported by Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC (USA) as processor acc. to article 28 of the GDPR. Data processing can therefore take place outside of the EU / the EEA. In regard to Google LLC, we cannot assume a sufficient level of data protection because the processing takes place in the US. There is a risk that authorities access the data for security and surveillance purposes without informing you about it and without allowing you to lodge an appeal. Please bear this in mind when you decide to approve our use of Google Analytics. 
Data processing takes place on the basis of your approval acc. to article 6 section 1a of the GDPR or § 15 section 3 sentence 1 TMG, provided that you gave your consent via our banner. Transmission into a third country takes place on the basis of article 49 section 1a of the GDPR.  
You can revoke your consent at any time.To do so, please follow this Link and specify the corresponding settings via our banner.

We use the popular SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method for the site visit, in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. In general, this will be a 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is encrypted is shown by the closed representation of the key or lock icon in the lower status bar of your browser.   We also take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
