This website uses the technologies and tools described below. If you do not wish to use them, we will provide you with various options and settings for the respective tool to prevent their use.

‎Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google";). The use includes the operating mode "Universal Analytics". This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous UserID and thus to analyze the activities of a user across devices. Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site.

The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, since IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (at https:/​­/​­tools.google.com/​­dlpage/​­gaoptout?hl=de). Opt-out cookies prevent the future collection of your data when visiting this website. To prevent the collection by Universal Analytics across different devices, you must perform the opt-out on all systems used.

The use of Google Analytics is based on our legitimate interest in a demand-oriented design, statistical analysis and the efficient promotion of our website. The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DS-GVO.

Google Adwords

We use the offer of Google Adwords (incl. Google Adwords Remarketing) to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. We use this tool to display advertising that is of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.

These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called "ad servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as display of the ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 90 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.

These cookies enable Google to recognize your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Adwords customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to each Adwords customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the website of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. Based on these evaluations, we can see which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising media; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.


In addition to the cookies mentioned in sections 4.4 to 4.11, this website uses other cookies. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of your browser.

If you require further information regarding the balancing of interests to be carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DS-GVO, please contact us using the contact details provided above. The following types of cookies, the scope and functionality of which are explained below, are used on this website:

  • Transient cookies (see 4.12.2)
  • Persistent cookies (see 4.12.3)
