Cookies do not harm your device; they do not contain viruses, Trojans, or other malicious software. The cookie stores information, which always relates to the specific device used. However, this does not mean that this provides us with immediate knowledge of your identity.

On the one hand, the use of cookies helps to make the use of our website more enjoyable for you. For example, we use so-called session cookies to recognize that you have already visited individual pages on our website. These are automatically deleted when you leave our site. In addition, we also use temporary cookies, that are stored on your device for a specified period, to improve usability. If you make a repeat visit to our site to take advantage of our services, it will automatically recognize that you have already been with us and what inputs and settings you have made, so you do not have to re-enter them.

XIII. ANALYZING TOOLS

a) Tracking tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are used on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) GDPR. We want to ensure that our website is designed to meet requirements and is continually optimized, through the use of these tracking measures. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website in order to optimize it. These interests are to be regarded as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision. The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

 

  1. Google Analytics

    We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google") for the demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages. Pseudonymized user profiles and cookies (see Clause 4) are created and used as part of this process. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as

    • browser-type/-version,
    • operating system used,
    • referrer URL (the site visited immediately before our site),
    • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
    • time of the server request,


    is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities, and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that no assignment is possible (IP masking).

    You can refuse the installation of cookies through an appropriate setting in your browser software. However please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all of the functions of the website to the full.

    You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

    Google also offers a deactivation option for the most popular browsers, giving you more control over what information Google collects and processes. If you activate this option, no information about your visit to the website will be transmitted to Google Analytics. However, activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analytics services that we may use. For more information about the opt-out option provided by Google and how to enable this option, please follow the link below: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

    As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie is installed to prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is stored on your device and is only valid in this browser and only for our website. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must re-install the opt-out cookie.

  3. Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

    We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website in order to optimize it for you. Google Adwords will install a cookie (see Clause 4) on your computer, if you have accessed our website via a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website, and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Therefore, cookies cannot be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. AdWords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the installation of the cookie required for this - for example by using a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the "http://www.googleleadservices.com/" domain. Google's privacy policy for conversion tracking can be found here( https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html).

  5. The use of reCAPTCHA

    To protect input forms on our site, we use the "reCAPTCHA" service produced by Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google". The use of this service enables us to distinguish whether a specific input is of human origin or is abusive input performed by automated machine processing.
    To the best of our knowledge, the referrer URL, IP address, behavior of website visitors, information about the operating system, browser and dwell time, cookies, display instructions and scripts, the user's input behavior, and mouse movements in the "reCAPTCHA" checkbox area are transmitted to "Google".

    Google uses the information obtained in this way, inter alia, to digitize books and other printed matter and to optimize services such as Google Street View and Google Maps (e.g. house number and street name recognition).

    The IP address transmitted within the scope of "reCAPTCHA" will not be merged with other Google data unless you are logged in to your Google account at the time you use the "reCAPTCHA" plug-in. If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behavior on our website by "Google", you must log out of "Google" before you visit our site or use the reCAPTCHA plug-in.
