We would like to point out that internet-based data transmission has security gaps, making complete protection against access by third parties impossible.

 

Cookies

We use so-called cookies on our site to recognize multiple use of our offer by the same user / internet connection owner. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser places and saves on your computer. They serve to optimize our website and our offers. These are mostly so-called "session cookies" that are deleted after your visit.
However, some of these cookies provide information in order to automatically recognize you. This recognition takes place on the basis of the IP address stored in the cookies. The information obtained in this way is used to optimize our offers and to give you easier access to our site.
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.

 

Server data

For technical reasons, the following data, which your internet browser transmits to us or to our web space provider, is recorded (so-called server log files):

- browser type and version
- the operating system used
- Website from which you are visiting us (referrer URL)
- Website you are visiting
- Date and time of your access
- Your Internet Protocol (IP) address.

These anonymous data are stored separately from any personal data you may have provided and thus do not allow any conclusions to be drawn about a specific person. They are evaluated for statistical purposes in order to be able to optimize our website and our offers.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”, on our website. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and thereby enable your use of the website to be analyzed.

The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to and stored by Google in the USA.

We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization function on our website. In this case, your IP address will already be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby anonymized.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

According to its own information, Google will under no circumstances associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is recorded and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about the website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services that we may use. Further information on the deactivation option provided by Google as well as on the activation of this option is available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

 

Use of Google Maps

We use the "Google Maps" component from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google", on our website.

Each time the "Google Maps" component is called up, Google sets a cookie in order to process user settings and data when the page on which the "Google Maps" component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close the browser, but expires after a certain period of time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.

If you do not agree to this processing of your data, you have the option of deactivating the "Google Maps" service and thereby preventing the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you have to deactivate the JavaScript function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use "Google Maps" or only to a limited extent.

"Google Maps" and the information obtained via "Google Maps" are used in accordance with the Google Terms of Use

If you reached our website via a Google ad, a cookie will be placed on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser places and saves on your computer. These so-called "conversion cookies" lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally.

The information obtained with the help of the "conversion cookies" is used by Google to create visit statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who clicked on our ad and which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, neither we nor other advertisers using “Google Adwords” receive any information that could be used to personally identify users.

You can prevent the installation of the "conversion cookies" by setting your browser accordingly, for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or specifically only blocks cookies from the "googleadservices.com" domain.
