3. Data collected on our website
The internet web pages use “cookies” in several places. Cookies do not cause any damage to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help us to make our website more user friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are placed on your computer and stored in your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are “session cookies” which are automatically deleted as soon as you leave the website. They are automatically deleted after the end of your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser the next time you visit our website.
You can change the settings of your browser so that you are informed every time a cookie is set. This will enable you to permit cookies in specific cases, to exclude them completely, or to have them deleted automatically every time you close your browser. However, if you disable cookies, this may affect the functionality of this website.
Server log files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in server log files which your browser then sends to us automatically. This information concerns:
Browser type and version
Operating system used
Host name of the accessing computer
Time of the server request
These data are not consolidated with other data sources.
The collection of these data is lawful under Article 6(1) f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically faultless presentation and optimization of its website – this entails the recording of server log files.
4. Analysis tools and advertising
This website uses the functions provided by the web analysis service Google Analytics from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses „Cookies“. These are text files which are stored on your computer to analyze the way you use the website. The information about the way you use this website created by the cookie is usually sent to and stored on a Google server in the USA.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies is lawful under Article 6(1) f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior for the purpose of optimizing its web services and its marketing.
We have enabled the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that Google truncates your IP address in Member States of the European Union or in other state parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is sent to the USA. The full IP address is only sent to and truncated on a Google server in the USA in exceptional circumstances. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate the way you use the website, to collate reports on website activities and in order to provide the website operator other services related to website and internet use. The IP address sent by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data held by Google.
You can change your browser settings to prevent cookies from being stored; however, this may mean that you are then unable to make full use of functions on the website. You can also prevent the data (including your IP address) which are captured by the cookie and which relate to your use of the website being sent to or processed by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.
Objection to data collection
You can prevent your data being collected by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. An opt out cookie is then set which prevents your data being collected the next time you visit this website: Disable Google Analytics.
More information about the way Google Analytics handles user data can be found in Google‘s data privacy statement: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en.
Processing of data on behalf of the customer
We have entered a contract with Google for the processing of data on our behalf; we implement the stringent requirements of the German data protection authorities in full when we use Google Analytics.
Demographics in Google Analytics
This website uses the Google Analytics „Demographics“ function. This enables reports to be produced with information about the age, gender and interests of website users. These data originate from interest-related advertising from Google and traffic data from third-party providers. These data cannot be assigned to particular people. You can disable this function at any time by changing your display settings in your Google account or prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics entirely as explained under “Objection to data collection“.
