Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (hereinafter simply referred to as: Google). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies," text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of how you use the website. Cookie-generated information about your use of this website is usually transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA.
However, if IP anonymization (see also farther down) is activated on this website, Google will store your IP address in shortened form if you are accessing this site from within the European Union or 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. 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 regarding website activity and internet usage for the website operator.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link . This will save an opt-out cookie onto your device. This will prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser for as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
It should be noted that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore only abbreviated IP addresses are processed, in order to prevent direct inferences about individuals.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to render our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries on this website, such as: Google Webfonts ( https://www.google.com/webfonts/ ). Google web fonts are transferred to the cache of your browser to prevent multiple downloads. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prohibits access, content will be displayed in a standard font.
Loading script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library.
As a result, Google learns that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web Fonts is in the interest of a consistent and attractive presentation of our online services. This represents a legitimate interest in the sense of Art. 6(1)(f) of the GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
US-based Google LLC is certified under the US-European data privacy agreement, Privacy Shield, which ensures compliance with the level of data protection in the EU.
Use of Google Maps
This website uses the Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes, and uses data about the use of map features by visitors. For more information about Google's data processing, please see the Google Privacy Notice. There you can also change your personal privacy settings in the privacy center.
You can find detailed instructions on managing your own data related to Google products here.
Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites we embed YouTube videos. The corresponding plugins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, it will connect to YouTube's servers. YouTube will be informed of which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can personally identify your surfing behavior. This can be prevented by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
Anyone who has disabled the storage of cookies for the Google-Ad program also should not expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

If you do not want Facebook to directly assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook profile, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. You can completely prevent the loading of Facebook plugins even with add-ons for your browser, e.g. with the "Facebook Blocker" (http://webgraph.com/resources/facebookblocker/).
Use of the Google “+1” interface
Please see Google's privacy policies for the purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of data by Google, as well as your rights and settings options for protecting your privacy: http://www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html
If you do not want Google to directly assign the data collected via our website to your profile on Google+, you must log out of Google+ before visiting our website.

Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you reached our website via an advertisement sent by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The Conversion Tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on a Google-served ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, we and Google may recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus cookies can not be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told 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 want to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the required setting of a cookie – for example via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser to block cookies from the “googleleadservices.com” domain.
Please note that you can not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want any tracking data recorded. If you delete all the cookies in your browser, you will have to set the respective opt-out cookie again.
Use of Google Remarketing
This website uses the remarketing feature from Google Inc. The feature is designed to present interest-based ads to webpage visitors within the Google Network. What’s known as a cookie is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages, visitors may be presented with ads related to content that the visitor previously viewed on webpages using Google's remarketing feature.
Our social media appearances
Data processing through social networks
We maintain publicly available profiles in social networks. The individual social networks we use can be found below.
Social networks such as Facebook, Google+ etc. can generally analyse your user behaviour comprehensively if you visit their website or a website with integrated social media content (e.g. like buttons or banner ads). When you visit our social media pages, numerous data protection-relevant processing operations are triggered.
In detail: If you are logged in to your social media account and visit our social media page, the operator of the social media portal can assign this visit to your user account. Under certain circumstances, your personal data may also be recorded if you are not logged in or do not have an account with the respective social media portal. In this case, this data is collected, for example, via cookies stored on your device or by recording your IP address.
Using the data collected in this way, the operators of the social media portals can create user profiles in which their preferences and interests are stored. This way you can see interest-based advertising inside and outside of your social media presence. If you have an account with the social network, interest-based advertising can be displayed on any device you are logged in to or have logged in to.
Our social media appearances should ensure the widest possible presence on the Internet. This is a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. The analysis processes initiated by the social networks may be based on divergent legal bases to be specified by the operators of the social networks (e.g. consent within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR).
Responsibility and assertion of rights
If you visit one of our social media sites (e.g., Facebook), we, together with the operator of the social media platform, are responsible for the data processing operations triggered during this visit. You can in principle protect your rights (information, correction, deletion, limitation of processing, data portability and complaint) vis-à-vis us as well as vis-à-vis the operator of the respective social media portal (e.g. Facebook).
Please note that despite the shared responsibility with the social media portal operators, we do not have full influence on the data processing operations of the social media portals. Our options are determined by the company policy of the respective provider.
The data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as the purpose for their storage lapses, you ask us to delete it, you revoke your consent to the storage or the purpose for the data storage lapses. Stored cookies remain on your device until you delete them. Mandatory statutory provisions – in particular, retention periods – remain unaffected.
Individual social networks
We have a profile on Facebook. The provider is Facebook Inc., 1 Hacker Way, Menlo Park, California 94025, USA. Facebook is certified under the EU-US Privacy Shield.
We have signed an agreement with Facebook on shared responsibility for the processing of data (Controller Addendum). This agreement determines which data processing operations we or Facebook are responsible for when you visit our Facebook Fanpage. This agreement can be viewed at the following link:
