On the browser side, we use so-called “session cookies”, “persistent cookies”, “third party cookies” and tracking pixels. Cookies are small files with configuration settings that help us to determine the frequency of use and type of usage of our website. In addition, these cookies help to realise certain user functions.

2.4 Website analysis
We use various web analysis services, including Google Analytics by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. These analysis services use “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer, and which allow your usage of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is transmitted to a server of the web analysis service (at Google in the USA) where it is saved. These analysis services use this information to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports about website activities for the website operator and to provide other services associated with the website and internet use. The IP address determined from the browser of the user during Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by making the respective settings in your browser software; however, please note that in such cases you will not be able to fully use all the functions of this website. In addition, you can prevent the collecting of the data created by the cookie and the usage of the data based on your website usage (including your IP address) by Google by using the following link (tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de) to download and install the available browser plugin. You can find more information about the usage conditions and data protection at google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and google.de/intl/de/policies.
We inform you that on this website, Google Analytics has been augmented by the service AnonymizeIP in order to ensure the anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).
The use of this web analysis service allows us to constantly improve our functions and services. Only non-personal data is used for analytical and reporting purposes. This data is not combined by us with other personal data.
By using this website you agree to web analysis services processing the data collected about yourself as described above and using the data for the purposes mentioned above.
We inform you about our company and our offers with our newsletter. In order to receive our newsletter, you must enter your email address. Before receiving the newsletter, you must expressly confirm that we should activate our newsletter service for you using the so-called double opt-in procedure. You will then receive a confirmation and authorisation email from us in which we ask to click on the link contained in the email in order to confirm that you would like to receive our newsletter. You can end the subscription to our newsletter at any time. To do so, simply click on the link found in the newsletter. Your email address will only be used by us and will not be forwarded to third parties.
With the subscription to the newsletter, we store the data of subscription as well as any interest-related information voluntarily provided. This is stored for verification purposes in the event that a third party abuses your email address and signs you up for the newsletter without your knowledge.
In order to send our newsletter, we use the E-Marketing Suite (“EMS”) software of Wilken GmbH, Hörvelsinger Weg 29-31, 89081 Ulm, Germany.
This contains a tracking pixel. This allows it to be determined whether the email was opened or whether the links contained in the email were clicked.

The information collected is stored by the newsletter provider Wilken on its servers in Germany. You can revoke your consent to tracking at any time by clicking on the special link provided in each email or by sending an email to the address email@example.com. The tracking pixel is automatically deleted by clicking the email. Our normal text emails do not include tracking pixels.
2.6 Social Plugins
A so-called “Shariff” plugin is used on our website. This open source program allows you to share content from our website on different social media platforms. However, Shariff transmits your data only to the respective social media platform after you have actively clicked on the button.
2.7 Integration of third-party services and content
It is possible that the content of third parties, such as videos from YouTube, map material from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites, are integrated within this online offer. This always means that the provider of this content (hereinafter referred to as “third-party provider”) sees the IP address of the user. Without the IP address, it cannot send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is thus necessary for the presentation of the content. We endeavour only to use such content whose respective provider uses the IP address solely to deliver the content. However, we have no influence over whether the third party stores the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. We will inform the user of this insofar as it is within our knowledge.
