When you visit our website, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an Internet server to your browser and stored on your hard drive. The information stored in the cookies allows you to be automatically recognised the next time you visit our website, which will make it easier for you to use the site. The legal basis for the use of cookies is your consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(a) GDPR or, for necessary cookies, our legitimate interest in accordance with Art. 6 (1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interests are in maintaining the functionality and security of the website, protection against misuse and improving our service.

Of course, you can also visit our website without accepting cookies. If you do not want your computer to be recognised the next time you visit, you can also refuse the use of cookies by changing the settings in your browser to “refuse cookies”. The respective procedure can be found in the settings of your browser. If you reject the use of cookies, however, there may be restrictions on the use of some areas of our website.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager. The Tag Manager does not collect personal data. The tool activates other tags, which may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have made a deactivation at the domain or cookie level, it will continue to persist for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. You can find Google’s privacy policy for this tool at:https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/tag-manager/

Google Analytics with anonymisation functionality

On our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Ireland Limited hereinafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, which are text files that are saved on your computer that enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies, such as time, location and frequency of your visits to the website, including IP address, are transmitted to Google and saved there.

On our website, we use Google Analytics with the “_gat._anonymizeIp” tag. Through this, your IP address will already be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other member states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google Inc. server in the USA and anonymised there.

Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your usage of our website, compiling reports on website activities for us, and carrying out further services relating to website activity and Internet usage. Google may also pass this information on to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google’s behalf.

Google will not, according to its own account, associate your IP address with any other data held by Google.

For more information on the use of cookies and your consent withdrawal options on our website, please refer to the “Cookies” section.

Google also offers an opt-out add-on for the most popular browsers, which gives you more control over what information Google collects about the websites you visit. The add-on indicates to the JavaScript (ga.js) of Google Analytics that no information about the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services we may use. For further information on installing the browser Add-On, please click on the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB

If you visit our website from a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you will need to click this link instead to prevent Google Analytics from tracking you within this site in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser Add-On. By clicking the link, an opt-out cookie is set in your browser and is valid only for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.

If you’ve agreed that Google may link your web and app browsing history to your Google Account and use information from your Google Account to personalise ads, Google will use your information in conjunction with Google Analytics data to create target audience lists for remarketing purposes across multiple devices. Google Analytics will first collect your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google account (i.e. personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily associate your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimise our target audiences.

If you do not agree, you can turn it off via the corresponding settings in the “My Account” section of your Google Account.

Google Doubleclick

Doubleclick by Google is a service by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (“Google”). Doubleclick by Google uses cookies to show you advertisements that are relevant to you. A pseudonymous identification number (ID) is assigned to your browser in order to check which ads were displayed in your browser and which ads were accessed.

The information generated by the cookies is transferred by Google to a server in the United States for evaluation and is stored there.

For more information about the use of cookies on our site, please see the section “Cookies”.
