The application of cookies occurs on the basis of a legitimate interest. Our interest is a user-friendly visit to our Internet pages.
The "Google Analytics" web analysis tool is used on this website. The purpose of its application is the "needs-based design" of these Internet pages that is conducted on the basis of a legitimate interest. Moreover, the web analysis allows us to recognise errors within the Internet pages and correct them, e.g., with faulty links. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow for an analysis of website use by you. Alongside this, the so-called "Client-IDs" are used in order to create pseudonymous user profiles that jointly record the use of the Internet pages through desktop computers and mobile devices by a user.
The information about your use of this website generated by the cookies is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and is stored there. However, because we have activated the so-called IP anonymization on this website and entered into a corresponding contract for order processing with Google, your already truncated IP address will be used by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other Contracting 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 and shortened there.
Google is certified in accordance with the so-called "Privacy Shield" (list entry). An adequate data protection level is guaranteed by Google.
You may prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as prevent Google from processing that data by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Alternatively, you may – particularly with mobile terminals – prevent the capture by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link. Then an Opt-out Cookie is placed that prevents the future capture of your data during a visit to this website: Google Analytics deactivate.
