4. 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 no damage to your end device, nor do they contain viruses, Trojans or other malware.

Information is stored in the cookie that, in each case, results in connection with the specifically used terminal device. However, this does not mean that we immediately become aware of your identity.

On the one hand, the use of cookies serves to simplify using our offer. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These will be deleted automatically after leaving our site.

We also use temporary cookies that are stored on your end device for a specified period of time to optimise user-friendliness. When you visit our site again to use our services, it will automatically recognise that you have already been with us and what entries and settings you have made, so that you do not have to enter them again.

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer (see No. 5). These cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already been with us when you return to our site. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time.

The data processed by cookies is required for the above-mentioned purposes so as to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Section 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Most browsers automatically accept cookies. 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. However, the complete deactivation of cookies can result in you not being able to use all functions of our website.

 

5. Analysis Tools

Tracking Tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Section 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f GDPR. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure that our website is designed to meet requirements and is continually optimised. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record our website’s use and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

i) Google Analytics
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimisation of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see No. 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of the server request,

is transferred 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 market research purposes and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties when this is required by law, or when third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymised so that 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 when you do this, the full functionality of this website may be restricted.

You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your website usage (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent future collection of your data 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 must set the opt-out cookie again.

For more information about privacy in connection with Google Analytics, please visit the Google Analytics Help Center. (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).

ii) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website for the purpose of optimising it for you. Google Adwords sets a cookie (see paragraph 4) on your computer when you have accessed our website via a Google ad.

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. When the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer may recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.

Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. The information collected by using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted in for conversion tracking. Adwords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the “www.googleadservices.com” domain. Google’s Privacy Policy for Conversion Tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html).

iii) Matomo
We use the open source software Matomo to analyse and statistically evaluate the use of the website. Cookies are used for this purpose (see section 4). The information generated by the cookie about website usage is transmitted to our servers and combined in pseudonymous user profiles. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website and to enable a demand-oriented design of our website. The information is not passed on to third parties.

Under no circumstances will the IP address be linked to other data relating to the user. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

Your visit to this website is currently recorded by Matomo web analysis. Click on (https://matamo.org/docs/privacy/), so that your visit is no longer recorded.

 

6. Social Media Plug-ins

We use social plug-ins from the social networks Facebook, Twitter and Instagram on our website on the basis of Section 6 Par. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR to make our company better known. The underlying advertising purpose is to be regarded as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. Responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be guaranteed by the respective provider. The integration of these plug-ins by us takes place in the way of the so-called two-click method in order to provide our website visitors the best possible protection.

a) Facebook
Our website uses social media plugins from Facebook to personalise their use. For this we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button. This is an offer from Facebook.

When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the Facebook servers. The content of the plugin is transferred directly from Facebook to your browser and integrated into the website.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged on to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

When you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can directly associate your visit to our website with your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.

Facebook may use this information for advertising, market research and demand-oriented design purposes of Facebook pages. To this end, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services associated with the use of Facebook.

When you do not want Facebook to associate the information collected through our website with your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website.

The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for the protection of your privacy can be found in the date privacy information of Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

b) Twitter
Our website contains plugins of the short message network of Twitter Inc. (Twitter) integrated. You can recognise the Twitter plugins (tweet button) by the Twitter logo on our site. An overview of tweet buttons can be found here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons).

When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Twitter “tweet button” while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the contents of our pages on your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to associate the visit of our pages with your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or of their use by Twitter.

If you do not want Twitter to associate your visit to our pages, please log out of your Twitter account. For more information, please see the Twitter Privacy Policy (https://twitter.com/privacy).

c) Instagram
Our website also uses so-called Social Plugins (“Plugins”) from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA (“Instagram”).

The plug-ins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an “Instagram camera.

When you access a page of our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to Instagram’s servers. Instagram transfers the content of the plugin directly to your browser and integrates it into the page. This integration informs Instagram that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, even if you do not have an Instagram profile or are not currently logged in to Instagram.

This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to an Instagram server in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can immediately associate your visit to our website with your Instagram account. When you interact with the plugins, for example by pressing the “Instagram” button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there.

The information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed to your contacts there.

If you do not want Instagram to associate the information collected through our website directly with your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.

Further information can be found in the data privacy declaration (https://help.instagram.com/155833707900388) of Instagram.

9. Data privacy

We use the most common SSL (Secure Socket Layer) method in connection with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Usually this is a 256 bit encryption. When your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form can be seen from the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.

We also use suitable technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
