  1. Analysis and marketing tools


The tracking and targeting measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 let. f of the GDPR.

We want to ensure a needs-based design and the ongoing optimisation of our website with the tracking measures being used. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate such for the purposes of optimising our offers for you.

We want to ensure via the targeting measures being used that only advertising which is orientated to your actual or perceived interests is displayed on your terminal devices. These interests are to be regarded as justified in the sense of the aforementioned provision.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories should be inferred from the implementation of the tracking and targeting tools presented below.


  • Google Analytics

Based on our legitimate interests for the optimisation and analysis of our online offers within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 let. f. of the GDPR, this website uses the service ‘Google Analytics’ offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses ‘cookies’ – text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there.


Google complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement:


IP anonymisation (= truncation of the IP address) is engaged for this website. The personal reference of your IP address is omitted due to this truncation. The user IP address provided by the browser will not be combined with other data stored by Google.


Within the framework of the agreement on the commissioned data processing arrangement, which we have concluded with Google Inc. as a website operator, this creates an evaluation of the website usage and website activity using the information collected, and provides services associated with Internet usage.


The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the usage of our online offers by the individual users, e.g. to create reports about activity on the website in order to improve our online offers.


You have the option of preventing the storage of cookies on your device by adjusting the appropriate settings in your browser. There is no guarantee that you will be able to access all the functionalities of this website without restrictions if your browser does not allow cookies.

  • Google Adwords conversion tracking

We also use Google conversion tracking offered by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA) in order to statistically record the usage of our website and to evaluate such for the purposes of optimising our offers for you. As a result, a cookie from Google Adwords (section 4.) is set up on your computer, provided that you have reached our website via a Google ad.

These cookies usually lose their validity 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 recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and was forwarded to this page.

Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through the websites of Adwords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers are notified of the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and who were forwarded to a page provided with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information which would allow users to be personally identified.


If you do not want to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse to set up the cookie required for this purpose, for example via the browser setting which generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain ‘’.

  • Google Adwords remarketing

On our website, we use Google remarketing tags from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, hereafter ‘Google’).

These technologies allow us to approach you purposefully with individualised interest-related advertising. For example, the cookies used (section 4) record information about which of our products you are interested in. Based on the information, we can also show you offers from the third-party sites which are specifically geared to your interests, as these arise from your previous user behaviour. The acquisition and evaluation of your user behaviour is carried out exclusively under a pseudonym, and does not allow us to identify you. In particular, the information is not merged with personal information about you.

Google complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement: 


Google will transfer this information to third parties if necessary, insofar as this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Third-party providers including Google place ads on websites on the Internet and use stored cookies to place ads based on previous visits by a user to this website. The data collection and storage can be objected to at any time with effect for the future.

If you do not want to participate in the targeting process, you can also refuse to set up the cookie required for this purpose, for example via the browser setting which generally disables the automatic setting of cookies.

  1. Data security


All personally transmitted data is transferred in an encrypted manner with the usual and secure standard TLS (Transport Layer Security). TLS is a safe and proven standard which is, for example, also used in online banking. You can recognise a secure TLS connection, amongst other things, by the ‘s’ attached at the end of http (i.e. https://...) in the address bar of your browser or by the lock icon at the bottom of your browser.

Furthermore, we take appropriate technical and organisational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or against unauthorised access by third parties. Our security measures are constantly being improved in line with technological developments.
