Protecting your personal data is very important to the operator of this website. We keep your personal data confidential and comply with the data protection legislation as well as this privacy policy.

Our website can typically be used without providing personal data. If personal data (for example name, address or e-mail address) is collected on our website, this is always voluntary where possible. This data will not be shared with third parties without your express consent. Please note that transmitting data over the internet (e.g. e-mail communications) may involve security vulnerabilities. It is not possible to fully protect data against unauthorised access by third parties.

Cookies

Some pages on the website use so-called cookies. Cookies are not harmful to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our service more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files which are stored on your computer by your browser. We mainly use so-called “session cookies”. These are automatically deleted at the end of your session. Other cookies remain stored on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognise your browser the next time you visit our website. You can configure your browser to alert you when cookies are being placed and to decide individually whether to accept them, to block certain cookies, or to block all cookies, and to delete cookies automatically after closing your browser. Blocking cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

This data cannot be matched with specific persons. This data shall not be merged with other data sources. We reserve the right to review this data after the fact if we have a concrete indication of unlawful use.

Google Analytics

This website uses functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. This service is provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files which are stored on your computer, allowing your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website will generally be transferred to a Google server in the USA and saved there.

IP Anonymisation

We have enabled the IP Anonymisation function on this website. Consequently, your IP address is truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to being transmitted to the USA. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website, compile reports about website activity, and provide the website operator with other services related to website use and internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics shall not be merged with other Google data.

Data processing

Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising software provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). We use so-called conversion tracking in line with Google AdWords. Clicking on an advertisement placed by Google will place a cookie for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files which the internet browser saves to the user’s computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and cannot be used to personally identify users. If a user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google will be able to recognise that the user has clicked on the advert and been redirected to the page in question. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. These cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information received with the help of the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers receive information about the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and been redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that could be used to identify users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to the use of this function by simply deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under "User Settings". You will thereafter not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. The basis for saving “conversion cookies” is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour for the purpose of optimising their website and their advertising. For more information about Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking, please refer to the Google privacy policy: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/. You can configure your browser to alert you when cookies are being placed and to decide individually whether to accept them, to block certain cookies, or to block all cookies, and to delete cookies automatically after closing your browser. Blocking cookies may limit the functionality of this website.

SSL Encryption

For security reasons and to ensure secure transmission of confidential information, such as enquiries that you send to us as the website operator, this website uses SSL encryption. An encrypted connection can be identified by the address bar of the browser changing from "http://" to "https://" and by the padlock icon next to the browser address. With SSL encryption enabled, third parties cannot gain unauthorised access to the data that you transmit to us.
