The Internet web pages partly use so-called cookies. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies serve to make our offer more user-friendly, effective and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and stored by your browser. Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are deleted automatically after your visit. Other cookies remain stored on your terminal device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser the next time you visit.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and can allow cookies only in individual cases, accept cookies for certain cases or generally exclude them and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
The provider of the web pages automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system in use
- Referrer URL
- Host name of the accessing computer
- Time of the server request
These data cannot be assigned to specific persons. A merge of this data with other data sources does not take place. We reserve the right to check this data at a later date, if we become aware of specific indications for illegal use.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on the user’s computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about users’ use of this website is generally transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.
However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, the IP address of Google users within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will be shortened beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website by users, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage for website operators.
We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. As a result, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to analyze your use of the website, prepare a website activities report and to provide other services related to the website and Internet use to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
You can reject cookies on your computer by changing the settings of your browser accordingly. However, please note that not all functions on our website may be fully available if you reject cookies. You can also prevent the collection of data related to your website use generated by the cookie (including your IP address) and its transmission to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics
This website uses the Google Analytics “demographics feature”. As a result, reports can be produced that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the web page visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. This data cannot be associated to a specific person. You can disable this feature at any time through the ad settings in your Google account, or generally prohibit the collection of your data by Google Analytics as outlined in the section “Objection to data collection”.
Our site uses the provider YouTube LLC, 901 Cherry Avenue, San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, represented by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA for the integration of videos. Normally, when you call up a page with embedded videos, your IP address is sent to YouTube and cookies are installed on your computer. However, we have integrated our YouTube videos with the extended data protection mode (in this case, YouTube still contacts Google’s DoubleClick service, but according to Google’s data protection declaration, personal data is not evaluated). As a result, YouTube no longer stores any information about the visitors unless they watch the video. If you click on the video, your IP address will be transmitted to YouTube and YouTube will know that you have viewed the video. If you are logged into YouTube, this information will also be assigned to your user account (you can prevent this by logging out of YouTube before viewing the video).
This site uses SSL encryption for security reasons and to protect the transmission of sensitive content, such as the requests you send to us as the web pages operator. An encrypted connection is indicated by the address line of the browser changing from “http: //” to “https: //” and by the lock symbol in your browser line. If SSL encryption is enabled, the data you submit to us cannot be read by third parties.
