1. Access Data and Hosting

You can visit our website without providing any personal information. Each time a website is called up, the web server automatically saves a so-called server log file, which contains, for example, the name of the requested file, your IP address, date and time of the call, the amount of data transferred and the requesting provider (access data) and documents the call. This access data is evaluated exclusively for the purpose of ensuring trouble-free operation of the site and improving our offer. In accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f GDPR, this serves to protect our legitimate interests in a correct presentation of our offer, which predominate within the framework of a weighing of interests. All access data will be deleted no later than seven days after the end of your visit to the site. Third-party hosting services As part of processing on our behalf, a third-party provider provides hosting and website display services for us.

You can see the duration of storage in the overview in the cookie settings of your web browser. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and decide individually whether to accept them or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general.

You can find these for the respective browser under the following links: Internet Explorer™: http://windows.microsoft.com/de-DE/windows-vista/Block-or-allow-cookies Safari™: https://support. apple.com/kb/ph21411?locale=de_DE Chrome™: http://support.google.com/chrome/bin/answer.py?hl=de&hlrm=en&answer=95647 Firefox™ https://support.mozilla.org /de/kb/cookies-allow-and-reject Opera™ : http://help.opera.com/Windows/10.20/de/cookies.html If cookies are not accepted, the functionality of our website may be restricted.

This serves to protect our overriding legitimate interests in an optimized presentation of our offer in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. Google (Universal) Analytics uses methods that enable an analysis of your use of the website, such as cookies. The automatically collected information about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

By activating IP anonymization on this website, the IP address is shortened before transmission within the 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 sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Use of Youtube videos This website uses the Youtube embedding function to display and play videos from the provider "Youtube", which belongs to Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

The extended data protection mode is used here, which, according to the provider, only initiates the storage of user information when the video(s) is/are played. If the playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider "Youtube" uses cookies to collect information about user behavior. According to information from "Youtube", these are used, among other things, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive practices. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be assigned directly to your account when you click on a video. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on YouTube, you must log out before activating the button. Google saves your data (even for users who are not logged in) as usage profiles and evaluates them. Such an evaluation is carried out in particular in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR on the basis of Google's legitimate interests in the display of personalized advertising, market research and/or needs-based design of its website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact YouTube to exercise this right. Regardless of whether the embedded videos are played back, a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is established each time this website is accessed, which can trigger further data processing operations without our influence. Google LLC based in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection agreement "Privacy Shield", which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU. Further information on data protection at "YouTube" can be found in the provider's data protection declaration at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking This website uses the online advertising program "Google AdWords” and, within the framework of Google AdWords, conversion tracking by Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

We use Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising material (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. In relation to the advertising campaign data, we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested in showing you advertising that is of interest to you, in making our website more interesting for you and in achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag.

7. Advertising via marketing networks Google AdWords Remarketing

This serves to safeguard our overriding legitimate interests in optimal marketing of our website in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 lit. f GDPR. After the end of our use of Google AdWords Remarketing, the data collected in this context will be deleted. Any further data processing will only take place if you have given your consent to Google that your web and app browser history will be linked to your Google account by Google and that information from your Google account will be used to personalize ads that you see on the web see.

In this way, the behavior of users can be tracked after they have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This process is used to evaluate the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes and can help to optimize future advertising. The data collected is anonymous to us, so we cannot draw any conclusions about the identity of the user. However, the data is stored and processed by Facebook so that a connection to the respective user profile is possible and Facebook can use the data for its own advertising purposes in accordance with the Facebook data usage guidelines (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/). You can enable Facebook and its partners to place advertisements on and outside of Facebook. A cookie can also be stored on your computer for these purposes. Consent to the use of the Facebook pixel may only be given by users who are older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, we ask that you ask your legal guardian for permission.
