a) When visiting the website
When you access our website, the browser used on your device will automatically send information to the server of our website. This information will be temporarily stored in a so-called log file.

The legal basis for data processing is art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point f) of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Cookies do not cause damage to your device and do not contain any viruses, Trojans or other malware. The cookie stores information resulting in connection with the respective device used. However, this does not mean that we directly receive information regarding your identity. The use of cookies firstly serves to make the use of our offer more convenient. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automatically deleted once you leave our website. In addition, we also use temporary cookies that are stored on your device for a specified period of time to optimise user-friendliness.

Secondly, we use cookies to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website for the purposes of optimising our offer (see section 5). If you visit our website again, these cookies enable us to automatically recognise that you had accessed our website before. These cookies are automatically deleted after a specified period of time.

5. Analytical tools
a) Tracking tools
The tracking methods listed below and used by us are implemented on the basis of art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 point f) of the GDPR. With the tracking methods we use, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the continuous optimisation of our website.
Secondly, we use the tracking methods in order to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website for the purposes of optimising our offer for you. These interests need be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be gathered from the corresponding tracking tools.

i) Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service of Google Inc. ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as "Google"), for the purposes of adequate design and the continuous optimisation of our website. In this connection, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies (see under section 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as
• browser type/version,
• operating system used,
• referrer URL (the page previously visited),
• host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
• time of the server request,
is transmitted to and stored on a server of Google in the U.S.A. The information is used in order to analyse the use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and adequate design of these web pages.
This information may also be transmitted to third parties where required to do so by law, or where third parties process this data by order. In no event will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting your browser software setting accordingly; please note, however, that changing your settings might cause that not all the features of this website can be fully used. You may also prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing a browser add-on ( As an alternative to the browser add-on, in particular for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is only effective in this browser and only for our website and will be stored on your device.
If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to reset the opt-out cookie. Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics is, for instance, available in Google Analytics Help (

ii) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website and for the purposes of optimising our website for you. As a result, Google Adwords will set a cookie (see section 4) on your computer if you have reached our website via a Google ad. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and do not serve personal identification. If the user accesses certain pages of the Adwords client's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the client can detect that the user clicked on the advertisement and was redirected to this page.
Each Adwords client receives a different cookie. Cookies can consequently not be tracked via the websites of Adwords clients. The information obtained by means of conversion cookies serves to generate conversion statistics for Adwords clients who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords clients see the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the cookie settings required for this – for instance via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic cookie settings. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the "" domain. Google's privacy information on conversion tracking can be found here  (

iii) Matomo
We use the open-source software Matomo for the analysis and statistical evaluation of the use of the website.  Cookies are used for this (see section 4). The information on website use generated by the cookie is transmitted to our server and collected in pseudonymous usage profiles. The information is used in order to evaluate the use of the website and to enable a needs-based design of our website. The information is not disclosed to a third party.
The IP address will in no event be associated with other data concerning the user. IP addresses are anonymised so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
