Website access/Cookies used on our website

Stored data

This website uses its own ‘cookies’ to enhance user-friendliness (‘cookies’ are data records that are sent by the web server to the user’s browser and stored there for later retrieval). No personal data is stored in our own cookies. You can generally prevent the use of cookies if you prohibit the storage of cookies in your browser.

 

Purpose of data processing

The cookie identifier provides us with information about usage behaviour and search queries by our website visitors, enabling us to better tailor our website to the interests and needs of our users. In addition, data from the log files (including IP addresses) is collected in order to be able to report an attack on our website or our IT infrastructure to the law enforcement authorities, or to involve the authorities responsible for security in the event of imminent threat of harm. This aids in ensuring the functionality of our web pages.

Legitimate interest

Data stored in the log files, including your IP address, is used for the technical and creative optimisation of our website and the proper operation of our servers (e.g. including prevention and prosecution in the context of potential attacks or security incidents). However, the IP address and your user behaviour cannot identify you personally nor are they used to create a personal profile.

Google Analytics

Stored data and purpose of data processing

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer that permit an analysis to be made of how you use the website. As a rule, the information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will be transmitted to, and stored by, Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will first be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your complete IP address be transferred to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activities for website operators, and to provide additional services related to the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transferred by your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be associated with other data held by Google. You can prevent the storage of the cookies by changing your browser settings accordingly; however, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies concerning your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de. In view of the discussion about the use of analysis tools with complete IP addresses, we would like to note that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” and that IP addresses are thus only processed in abbreviated form so as to preclude the personal identification of any person. In the case of browsers on mobile devices, please click the following link (https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en) in order to prevent anonymised data collection by Google Analytics on this website in future by setting a so-called opt-out cookie.
