5. Use of analysis tools
5.1. This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information provided by a cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event of activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will, however, first be reduced by Google within member countries of the European Union or in other countries which are members of the European Economic Area treaty. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and reduced there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services to the website operator relating to website use and internet use.
5.2. The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be linked with other Google data.
5.3. You can prevent the storage of cookies with the relevant setting in your browser software; however, please note that you will then possibly not be able to use all the functions of this website in full.
5.4. In addition, you can download and install the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en to prevent both the transmission to Google of the data obtained by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google.

6. Use of Google AdWords
Google AdWords Conversion is used on the website. This is a tool to measure the interaction of internet users with the advertisements we post.
When a user clicks on our text advertisement in the Google Search or on the selected website in the Google display network or watches our video advertisement, a temporary cookie is stored on his or her computer. The cookie becomes invalid after 30 days and does not enable personal identification.
If a user completes a conversion on our website within this period, the cookie is read out via the tracking tag and sent back to AdWords with the conversion
The information obtained with the help of cookies is used to draw up conversion statistics for us. For example, we learn the total number of users who have
clicked on our advertisement. We are not able to identify users personally. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can prevent the placing of
cookies with a browser setting.
7. Use of Google Dynamic Remarketing
Google Dynamic Remarketing is used on the website. As a result, users can, on the basis of their surfing behaviour, be shown – on any arbitrary website –advertisements for products which they have accessed in the past. When a controller uses Google Remarketing, Google tools are included in the website source code which permit the placing of cookies on the respective end device of the visitor to the website. With the help of these cookies, Google is also able to recognise the visitor on other websites. Through implementation of the cross-device function by Google, advertising is possible on several end devices. The requirement for the cross-device function is that the relevant user has agreed to the linking of his or her app- or programme-based browser actions to his or her Google account. If a user logs in with his Google account at different times on several end devices, even if only for a logical second, Google is able to link the remarketing cookies placed on the end devices and then send advertising to the user on a cross-device basis.
According to Google, Google-authenticated user IDs are temporarily collected for this purpose, which serve for cross-device target group formation.
In the settings for advertising, you can deactivate personalised advertising by Google.
More detailed information is available at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en&ref_topic=7048998.
Alternatively, you can use a browser plug-in, on which information is available at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/7395996?hl=en
Please note that only personalised advertising is deactivated by use of the above functions. Thus advertisements are no longer oriented to your interests.
You can use a browser setting to prevent the placing of cookies.
8. Use ofGoogle web fonts
To present our content correctly and with an attractive graphic design on all browsers, we use fonts of the service provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre
Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (Google web fonts) on this website. Google web fonts are transmitted to your browser cache to prevent repeated loading. A connection to Google is automatically established. When this is done, it is theoretically possible that Google gathers personal data – but currently not clear whether this is the case and, if so, for what purposes.
Data protection settings can be changed at Google at https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated.
9. Use of Google Tag Manager
Google Tag Manager is used on the website, a service of Google Inc. (“Google”). This service enables website tags to be managed via an interface.
The Tool Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-free domain and does not gather any personal data. The tool enables the triggering of other tags which may, for their part, collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has been carried out at domain or cookie
level, this remains effective for all tracking tags which are implemented with Google Tag Manager.
10. Storage of data
We apply the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation. Thus we only store your personal data for as long as necessary to achieve the aims identified here or for as long as specified in the various storage periods prescribed by law.
11. Obligation to provide data
No legal obligation to provide data applies. However, you cannot use some functions on our website without supplying personal data.
12. Automated decision in individual cases
No automated decision-making is used in processing your data.
