In order to protect your personal data from unauthorised access by third parties during transmission, we may secure data transfers by means of SSL encryption. This is a standardised encryption method for online services, especially for the internet.

Log files

Every time you access our web pages, usage data is transmitted by the respective internet browser and stored in server log files. The data sets stored in this process contain the following data: domain from which the user accesses the website, date and time of access, IP address of accessing computer, web page(s) visited by the user within the scope of the online content, amount of data transferred, browser type and version, operating system used, name of the internet service provider, notification whether access was successful. These log file data sets are analysed anonymously in order to improve our content and make it more user-friendly, to locate and rectify errors and to manage the utilisation of servers. The IP address will be deleted from all systems used in connection with the operation of these web pages within seven days. We can then no longer establish a connection with an individual person based on the remaining data.

Cookies

This website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file with an identification number, which is transmitted to the user's computer and stored there together with other requested data during use of the website. The file is kept there for later access and is used to authenticate the user. Since cookies are simple files and not executable programs, they do not pose a threat to the computer. With the exception of essential cookies, we generally only store cookies with your consent on the basis of Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR, which you can revoke at any time.

If you have disabled cookies in your internet browser, some features of the website may not be available or may be limited. We may work with advertising partners to help us make our website more interesting for you. For this purpose, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your hard drive (third-party cookies) when you visit our website. If we are working with advertising partners as described above, you will be informed individually and separately about the use of such cookies and the amount of information collected in each case, as set out in the following paragraphs.

We use the following types of cookies:

First-party cookies: First-party cookies are transmitted from the platform you are currently visiting.

Essential cookies: These cookies are required to allow you to navigate through the platform and use its functions, such as access to secure areas of the platform. Without these, certain services cannot be provided, such as displaying customised content for your computer or device.

Performance cookies: These cookies collect information about how visitors use the platform, such as which pages are accessed most frequently and whether they receive error messages from websites. However, these cookies do not collect information about the visitor's identity. All information collected by these cookies is summarised and therefore anonymous. They are used only to optimise the platform.

Functionality cookies: These cookies allow the platform to store decisions you have made (eg language settings and your region) and provide you with improved, more personalised features. They can also be used to save your settings with regard to text size, font and other customisable elements of the website. In addition, they can be used to provide the services you want, such as viewing a video or commenting within a blog. The information collected by these cookies can be anonymised. Your browsing activities cannot be tracked on other platforms.

Google Analytics

We use the Google Analytics service provided by Google Inc. This service allows us to analyse use of our websites through the use of cookies. For this purpose, the information generated by the cookie, such as your anonymised IP address, is transmitted on our behalf to a Google Inc. server in the USA, where it is stored and analysed. On this website, Google Analytics has been extended with the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure the anonymised collection of IP addresses. Google Inc. generally shortens your IP address within the European Union or in other contracting states of the European Economic Area (EEA) in order to anonymise your IP address. Only in exceptional cases will your IP address be transmitted to a Google Inc. server in the USA and anonymised there. Your IP address transmitted in this process will not be merged with other data held by Google Inc. The Google Analytics advertising feature uses remarketing and performance reports based on demographic characteristics and interests. The purpose of these operations is to use information on user behaviour to better align advertising measures with the interests of the respective users. Within the scope of remarketing, personalised advertising material can be placed on other websites based on the user's browsing behaviour on this website. In this case, the advertising material may contain products that the user has previously looked at on the website. If you have given your consent to allow your Google web and app browsing history to be linked to your Google account and information from your Google account to be used to personalise adverts, Google will use this data for cross-device remarketing. You can opt out of the collection of your data by Google Analytics at any time. You may choose from any of the following options to do so:

Google Analytics cookies are stored only with your consent, which you can revoke at any time, on the basis of Article 6 (1)(a) GDPR. You can also prevent the use of cookies by adjusting your browser settings; however, if you do this, you may not be able to use some features of the website. You will have to adjust the settings for each browser you use separately.
