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 is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on these websites, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

The processing is carried out on the basis of our legitimate interests in accordance with article 6 paragraph 1 sub-paragraph (f) GDPR. IP anonymization
We use the function “Activation of IP anonymization” on this website. However, this will cause your IP address to be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states which are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

We use the Google Tag Manager. This service allows website-tags to be controlled from one interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. No cookies are set and no personal data is collected. Google Tag Manager triggers other tags to collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation was made at the domain or cookie level, it remains for all tracking tags, as long as they are implemented with the Google Tag Manager. More information about Google Tag Manager can be found at: http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
The user has the option to prevent sending of all tags. To do this, the user must click on the opt-out link below to deactivation cookie in their browser.
For more information, see the usage policies at http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html. Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to present our content correctly and in a graphically appealing way across all browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Web Fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browser’s cache to avoid multiple loading. If your browser does not support Google Web Fonts or does not allow access, content will be displayed in a default font.
Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – for the operators of such libraries to collect data.
13. Social media and third party tools
Embedded YouTube videos
On some of our websites we embed Youtube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.
When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to Youtube servers. This tells Youtube which pages you visit. If you are logged in to your YouTube account, Youtube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by first logging out of your Youtube account.
If you’ve disabled cookies for the Google Ad program, you won’t have to worry about these cookies even when you watch YouTube videos. However, Youtube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
14. SSL encryption
In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption procedures (e.g. SSL) via HTTPS. You can recognize an encrypted connection by the character string “https://” at the start of the internet address and the lock symbol in your browser address line.
