The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. With the tracking measures to be used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the continuous optimisation of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

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

 1) Google Analytics

For the purpose of customising and continually optimising our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics 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 usage profiles are created and cookies (see point 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 query,

are transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the United States. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage for the purposes of market research and tailor-made website design. Google may also send this information to third parties, to the extent required by law or if third parties process this data on order. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymised, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cooking through a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, please note that by doing so you might not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible.

You may also prevent the collection of the cookie-generated and website-related information (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser add-on  (https://tools.google.com/ dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. This method sets an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this site. 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 reset the respective opt-out cookie again.

For more information about data protection related to Google Analytics, see the Google Analytics Help Centre  (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

2) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

To statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our website, we also use Google conversion tracking. Thereby Google Adwords sets a cookie (see Item 4) 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 recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can not be tracked through AdWords customer websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate visit action evaluation statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers learn 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 wish 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 „www.googleadservices.com“ . Google's privacy policy for conversion tracking can be found here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html).
