4 Cookies

We use cookies on our website. Cookies are small files created automatically by your browser and stored on your device (laptop, tablet, smartphone, etc.) when you visit our site. Cookies are not harmful to your device and do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware. A cookie stores information arising in each case in conjunction with the specific device used. This does not mean, however, that as a result we receive direct information about your identity. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly. For example, we use “session cookies” to identify whether you have already visited individual pages of our website. Session cookies are deleted automatically when you leave our site. Furthermore, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user-friendliness. They are stored on your device for a certain, fixed time. If you visit our site again to make use of our services, it will automatically recognise your device and your entries and settings you may have configured so you need not enter them again. We also use cookies to record the usage of our website statistically, and to analyse our site for the purpose of optimisation (see Section 5). When you visit our site again, these cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you have already visited us. These cookies are deleted automatically after a defined time. The data processed by cookies are required for the purposes stated to protect our legitimate interests, and those of third parties, as laid down in Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or that a message is always shown before a new cookie is created. Fully disabling cookies can however mean you cannot use all of the functions of our website.

5. Analyse-Tools

a) Analysis tools
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. With these tracking measures, we want to ensure a needs-based design and continual optimisation of our website. We also use tracking measures to record the usage of our website statistically and to analyse our site for the purpose of optimisation. These interests are to be deemed legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. Refer to the corresponding tracking tools for the relevant data processing purposes and data categories.

b) Google Analytics
To continually optimise our website and design it in such a way that it meets users’ needs, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ( /) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereafter “Google”). This involves the creation of pseudonymised user profiles and the use of cookies (refer to Section 4). The information generated by a cookie about your use of this website, such as the
  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (the site visited previously),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of the server request,

are sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information is used to analyse usage of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services associated with website and Internet usage for the purposes of market research and the needs-based design of these websites. This information is also passed on to third parties if this is legally required and provided that these third parties carry out the processing of this data on our behalf. Your IP address is never combined with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised, meaning associations are impossible (IP masking). You can disable the installation of cookies by means of a corresponding setting in your browser software; note, however, that in this case it might not be possible to make full use of all of the functions of this website. Furthermore, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie and relating to your usage of the website (including your IP address) by downloading and installing a browser add-on  ( As an alternative to the browser add-on (in particular for browsers on mobile devices), you can click on this link to prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie applies only to that browser and only to our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in that browser, you need to set the opt-out cookie again. More information on data protection in conjunction with Google Analytics is available for example in Google Analytics Help (

c) Google Adwords conversion tracking
To record usage of our website statistically and to analyse our website for the purpose of optimisation, we also use Google conversion tracking. If a user is directed to our website from a Google advert, Google Adwords places a cookie (see Section 4) on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the website of the Adwords customer and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can tell that the user clicked the advert and was forwarded to this page. Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. This means cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. Information obtained using a conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. They can see the total number of users who have clicked their advert and been forwarded to a page featuring a conversion tracking tag. But they do not receive any information that can identify users personally. If you do not want to be part of the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of the cookie required for it, by using for example a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser such that cookies from the domain „“ are blocked. Google’s data protection instructions for conversion tracking are available under the following link: (

6. Social media plugins

To raise the profile of our company, we use on our website the Facebook social network plugin on the basis of Art. 6 para 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. The underlying promotional purpose is to be deemed as a legitimate interest as defined by the GDPR. Responsibility for ensuring operation is data protection compliant must be guaranteed by the respective provider. To provide the best possible level of protection for visitors to our website, we use the two-click method to integrate these plugins.
We use social media plugins from Facebook on our website in order to personalise your visits. We use the “LIKE” and “SHARE” buttons for this. They are a service provided by Facebook. When you visit a page on our website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Facebook. The content of the plugin is sent by Facebook directly to your browser, that incorporates it in the web page. With these integrated plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the relevant page of our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged into it. This information (including your IP address) is sent by your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA, where it is stored. If you are logged into Facebook, it can directly assign the visit to our website to your Facebook account. When you interact with the plugins (such as by pressing the “LIKE” and “SHARE” buttons), the relevant information is also sent to a Facebook server, where it is stored. The information is also posted on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends. Facebook can use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and needs-based design of Facebook pages. For this, Facebook compiles usage, interest and relation profiles to, for example, analyse your usage of our website regarding the adverts shown to you in Facebook, to inform other Facebook users of your activities on our website, and to provide other services associated with Facebook usage. If you do not want Facebook to assign to your account information collected by Facebook about our website, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our website. Please refer to the data privacy information of Facebook ( /) for the purpose and scope of data collection, other additional processing and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and the setting options for protecting your privacy.

You can tell whether an individual page of our website is encrypted by the locked key/lock icon in the lower status bar of your browser.

10 Validity of and changes to this data privacy statement

Our social media appearances

This privacy policy applies to the following social media presence

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, X etc. can generally analyze your user behavior 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.

Please also note that we cannot retrace all processing operations on the social media portals. Depending on the provider, additional processing operations may therefore be carried out by the operators of the social media portals. Details can be found in the terms of use and privacy policy of the respective social media portals.

Legal basis

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.

Storage time

The data collected directly from us via the social media presence will be deleted from our systems as soon as 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.

We have no control over the storage duration of your data that are stored by the social network operators for their own purposes. For details, please contact the social network operators directly (e.g., in their privacy policy, see below).

Your rights

You have the right to receive information about the origin, recipient and purpose of your stored personal data at any time and free of charge. You also have the right to object, the right to data portability and the right to file a complaint with the responsible regulatory agency. Furthermore, you can request the correction, blocking, deletion and, under certain circumstances, the restriction of the processing of your personal data.
