Cookies do not cause any damage to your terminal device and do not contain viruses, Trojans or other malware. 

Information is stored in the cookie that arises in each case in connection with the specific terminal device used. However, this does not mean that we gain direct knowledge of your identity as a result. 

The use of cookies serves, on the one hand, to make the use of our offering more pleasant for you. We use so-called session cookies to recognise that you have already visited individual pages of our website. These session cookies are automatically deleted after you leave our site.

In addition, we also use temporary cookies to optimize user-friendliness. These cookies are stored on your terminal device for a certain fixed period of time. If you visit our site again to use our services, it is automatically recognized that you have already been with us and which entries and settings you have made so that you do not have to enter them again. 

On the other hand, we use cookies to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offering for you (see item E). These cookies enable us to automatically recognize that you have already been with us when you visit our site again. These cookies are automatically deleted after a defined period of time. 

The data processed by cookies is necessary for the aforementioned purposes to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties in accordance with Article 6(1)f GDPR.

1.Tracking tools

The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)f GDPR. The tracking measures we use are intended to create a needs-based design for our website and to ensure that it is continuously optimized.
On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offering for you. These interests may be regarded as legitimate within the definition of the aforementioned regulation.

For the needs-based design purposes and continuing optimization of our web pages, we use Google Analytics, which is a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; im hereinafter „Google“). In this connection, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies used (see B. above). The information generated by the cookie on your use of this website, such as
  • browser type/version,
  • operating system used,
  • referrer URL (the previously visited page),
  • host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
  • time of the server request,

is transferred to and stored on a Google server in the USA. This information is used to evaluate usage of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide additional services associated with use of the website and Internet for the purposes of market research and needs-based design of these web pages. This information is also transferred to third parties, if appropriate, insofar as this is legally specified or to the extent that third parties are commissioned to process these data. Under no circumstances will your IP address be combined with any other data held by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that no assignment is possible (IP masking).

You may refuse the installation of cookies by selecting the appropriate browser settings; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

Furthermore, you can prevent the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being captured and processed by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on .

As an alternative to the browser add-on, particularly in the case of browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent Google Analytics from capturing the data by clicking on this link. An opt-out cookie will be set that will prevent the future capture of your data on a visit to this website. The opt-out cookie only applies in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will have to set the opt-out cookie again.

2.1 Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to record the use of our website statistically and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. In this process, Google Adwords sets a cookie (see B. above) on your computer if you have arrived on our website via a Google advert. 

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the website of the Adwords customer and the cookie has not expired, Google and the client will be able to recognize that the user clicked on the advert and was redirected to this page.

Every Adwords client receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked through the web pages of Adwords clients. The information collected with the aid of the conversion cookie is used for creating conversion statistics for Adwords clients who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords clients are informed of the total number of users who have clicked on their advert and have been forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information with which users can be personally identified.

If you do not wish to take part in the tracking procedure, you can withhold your consent to the setting of the required cookie – via your browser settings, for example, which generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain  "". You can find Google’s privacy policy on conversion tracking here (

We use the open-source software Matomo to analyse and statistically evaluate use of the website. Cookies are used for this purpose (see B. above). The information on use of the website generated by the cookie is transferred to our servers and summarized in pseudonymized user profiles. The information is used to evaluate use of the website and to enable a needs-oriented design of our website. No forwarding of the information to third parties takes place. 

Under no circumstances will the IP address be associated with any other data concerning the user. The IP addresses are anonymized so that no assignment is possible (IP masking).

By incorporating the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our Internet presence and does so even if you have no Facebook account or are not currently logged into Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transferred directly to a Facebook service in the USA, where it is stored. 

If you are logged in with Facebook, it will be able to assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plug-ins, such as by pressing the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also sent directly to Facebook and saved there.

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our Internet presence to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before your visit.
