The cookie is used to store information that results from the respective context of the specifically used end device. However, this shall not mean that we immediately obtain any knowledge of your identity this way.
Furthermore, we also use temporary cookies to optimise user friendliness, which are stored on your end device for a certain specified period. When you visit our site again in order to use our services, it will be automatically recognised that you have visited us before and which input and settings you have made so that you will not have to enter them again.
The personal data processed by cookies are necessary for the purpose of maintaining our legitimate interests and those of third parties according to point (f) of sentence 1 of Article 6(1) GDPR.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. You may, however, configure your browser so that no cookies will be stored on your computer or that you will always be informed before a new cookie is set up. Complete deactivation of cookies may, however, render you unable to use all functions of our website.
5. Analysis tools
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are performed based on point (f) of sentence 1 of Article 6(1) GDPR. With the tracking measures used, we want to ensure demand-oriented design and continuous optimisation of our website. On the other hand, we use tracking measures in order to statistically record use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimising our offer to you. These interests are to be viewed as legitimate within the context of the above rule.
The respective purposes of the processing activities and categories of data can be taken from the corresponding tracking tool.
i) Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter: "Google"), for the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimisation of our website. In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are compiled and cookies are used (see item 4). The information generated by the cookie regarding your use of this website, such as
- browser type/version,
- operating system used,
- referrer URL (the website visited before),
- host name of the accessing computer (internet protocol address),
- time of the server query,
will usually be transferred to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. The information is used in order to evaluate use of the website in order to compile reports on the website activities and in order to provide further services connected to use of the website and use of the internet for the purpose of market research and demand-oriented design of these internet websites. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or as far as third parties process these personal data based on a contract. In no case will your internet protocol address be combined with any other personal data of Google. The internet protocol addresses are rendered anonymous so that they cannot be assigned (IP masking).
You may prevent installation of the cookies by making the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, note that you may be unable to fully use all functions of the website in such a case.
You may furthermore prevent recording of the data generated by the cookie and referring to your use of the website (incl. your internet protocol address) and processing of these personal data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on.
As an alternative to the browser add-on, in particular for browsers on mobile end devices, you can prevent recording by Google Analytics by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie is set that will prevent the future recording of your personal data when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie will only be valid for this browser and only for our website; it is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you need to set the opt-out cookie again.
For more information on data protection related to Google Analytics, see the Google Analytics help.
ii) Google AdWords Conversion-Tracking
In order to statistically record use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimisation of our website for you, we may use Google Conversion Tracking. In the scope of this, Google Adwords places a cookie (see item 4) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google ad.
These cookies will be rendered invalid after 30 days and are not used to identify you in person. If the user visits specific pages of the website of the Adwords client and the cookie has not expired yet, Google and the client will be able to tell that the user has clicked the display and was forwarded to this site.
Every Adwords client will receive a different cookie. Cookies cannot thus be tracked via the websites of Adwords clients. The information collected by the conversion cookie is used to compile conversion statistics for Adwords clients who have decided to use conversion tracking. The AdWords clients learn the total number of users who have clicked their ad and have been forwarded to a site supplied with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information with which the users can be identified in person.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking procedure, you may also refuse the setting of a cookie that is required for this – for example by making the settings in your browser that generally deactivate automatic setting of cookies. You may also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com". Google's data protection information on conversion tracking can be found here.
iii) Server protocols
When calling up our website, the browser used on your end device will automatically send information to the server of our website. This information is temporarily stored in a log file. The following information is recorded without any action on your end and stored until automatic erasure:
- Internet protocol address of the requesting computer,
- Date and time of the access,
- the website from which the access takes place,
- name and URL of the called page,
- web browser used and, if applicable, the operating system of your computer and the DNA name of your internet provider.
The data named are processed as follows:
- Evaluation of system security and stability in case of error, as well as
- for administrative purposes, e.g.: in case of attacks to block attacker internet protocol addresses.
The legal basis for processing activities shall be Article 6(1) GDPR. Our legitimate interests follow from the purposes listed for data collection above.
In no case shall we use any recorded personal data for the purpose of drawing conclusions about your person.
7. Right to object
If your personal data are processed based on legitimate interests in accordance with point (f) of sentence 1 Article 6(1) GDPR, you have the right to object to processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 21 GDPR as far as there are grounds for this that result from your particular situation or the objection is targeted against direct marketing. In the latter case, you have a general right to object that will be implemented by us without any indication of a particular situation.
If you want to exercise your revocation right or right to object, simply send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
8. Data security
Within the website visit, we use the common SSL procedure (Secure Socket Layer) in conjunction with the respective highest encryption level your browser supports. This usually is 256 bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a particular page of our website is transmitted encrypted or not is evident by the closed display of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser.
Apart from this, we use appropriate technical and organisational security measures in order to protect your personal data from accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures will be improved continually according to the technological developments.

Further development of our website and offers through it or changed statutory or authority specifications may require changes to this data protection statement.
