processing procedures below do not state otherwise.

“Personal data” is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person.

Every time our website is accessed, user data is transferred to us or our web hosts/IT service providers by your internet browser and stored

in server log files. This stored data includes for example the name of the site called up, date and time of the request, the IP address,

amount of data transferred and the provider making the request. The processing is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1) f) GDPR due to

our legitimate interests in ensuring the smooth operation of our website as well as improving our services.

Analysis Advertising

Use of the Google Analytics

Our website uses the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google LLC. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043,

USA; "Google"). If you are ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow

Street, Dublin 4, Ireland) is the controller responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google

responsible for processing your data and for compliance with the applicable data protection legislation.

The processing of data serves to analyse this website and its visitors and for marketing and advertising purposes. Google will use this

information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to

provide other services to the website operator relating to website and internet use. In this process the following information, inter alia, can

be collected: IP address, date and time of the website access, click path, information on the browser and the device you are using, the

pages visited, referrer URL (website via which you accessed our website), location data, purchasing activities. The IP address transmitted

from your browser within the scope of Google Analytics is not associated with any other data held by Google. Google Analytics uses

technology such as cookies, web storage in the browser, and tracking pixels which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The

information generated by these regarding your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP

anonymisation is activated on this website.

Google uses this to shorten your IP address beforehand within Member States of the European Union or in other signatories to the

Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA

and shortened there.

In accordance with the US-EU Data Protection Agreement, Google has become subject to the "Privacy Shield" and is therefore obliged to

observe European data protection laws.

The data processing, particularly the placing of cookies, is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR due to our overriding legitimate

interest in the needs-based and targeted design of the website. On grounds relating to your particular situation, you have the right to

object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out in accordance with Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

You can also prevent the collection of the data (including your IP address) generated by Google Analytics and related to your use of the

website by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the

following link [https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de]. To prevent the data collection and storage by Google Analytics across

multiple devices you can place an opt-out cookie. Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when you visit this website. You

need to implement the opt-out on all systems and devices that you are using, so that this works comprehensively. If you delete the opt-out

cookie, requests will be transmitted to Google again. When you click here the opt-out cookie will be placed: Deactivate Google Analytics.

Use of Google Ads conversion tracking

Our website uses the online marketing program "Google Ads", including conversion tracking (evaluation of user actions). Google conversion

tracking is a service operated by Google LLC (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google").

If you are ordinarily resident in the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Ireland Limited (Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin

4, Ireland) is the controller responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google responsible for

processing your data and for compliance with the applicable data protection legislation.

If you click on adverts placed by Google, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking. These cookies have limited validity,

do not contain any personal data and thus cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the

cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you have clicked on the advert and were forwarded to this page. Every

Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. It is therefore not possible to track cookies relating to the websites of Ads customers.

The information collected using the conversion cookie serves the purpose of producing conversion statistics. This allows us to find out the

total number of users who have clicked on our adverts and were forwarded to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However,

they do not receive any information with which could be used to personally identify users.

Your data may be transmitted to the USA. In accordance with the US-EU Data Protection Agreement, Google has become subject to the

"Privacy Shield" and is therefore obliged to observe European data protection laws.

The data processing, particularly the placing of cookies, is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR due to our overriding legitimate

interest in addressing visitors to the website with targeted, interest-related advertising. On grounds relating to your particular situation,

you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out in accordance with

Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.

You can deactivate personalised advertising in Google’s advertising settings. Instructions for this can be found at

https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de.

Alternatively, you can prevent the use of cookies by third parties by calling up the Network Advertising Initiative deactivation page at

https://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and following the further opt-out instructions specified there.

You then won’t be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

4, Ireland) is the controller responsible for your data. Google Ireland Limited is therefore the company affiliated with Google responsible for

processing your data and for compliance with the applicable data protection legislation.

The data processing serves the purpose of renting out advertising space on the website and using these to address visitors to the website

with targeted, interest-related advertising.

uses cookies, which make it possible to analyse your use of the website.

The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored

there. Google may also transmit this data to third parties if this is required by law or the third party is processing the data on behalf of

Google. On no account will Google associate your IP address with other Google data. In accordance with the US-EU Data Protection

Agreement, Google has become subject to the "Privacy Shield" and is therefore obliged to observe European data protection laws.

The data processing, particularly the placing of cookies, is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR due to our overriding legitimate

interest in addressing visitors to the website with targeted, interest-related advertising. On grounds relating to your particular situation,

you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out in accordance with

This application serves to analyse visitor behaviour and visitor interests.

Google uses cookies to analyse website use, forming the basis for producing interest-related adverts. Cookies allow for the recording of

website visits as well as anonymised data on the use of the website. The personal data of website visitors is not saved. If you then visit

another website in the Google display network you will then be shown adverts which are more likely to take previous areas of product and

information interest into account.

Your data may be transmitted to the USA. In accordance with the US-EU Data Protection Agreement, Google has become subject to the

"Privacy Shield" and is therefore obliged to observe European data protection laws.

interest in addressing visitors to the website with targeted, interest-related advertising. On grounds relating to your particular situation,

you have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you and carried out in accordance with

Article 6(1)(f) GDPR.
