Use of cookies

What are cookies?

On this website we use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the memory of your terminal device via your browser. Cookies store certain information (e.g. your preferred language or page settings), which can be sent back to us by your browser when you visit the website again (depending on the lifetime of the cookie).

What cookies do we use?

We distinguish between two categories of cookies: (1) function-related cookies, without which the functionality of our website would be limited and (2) optional cookies, e.g. for purposes of website analysis and marketing. In the following table, we describe the optional cookies used on this website in detail:

Optional Cookies

These cookies assign a randomly generated ID to your device, which we use to recognize your device on your next visit. Details on website analytics can be found below in the corresponding chapter. 6 months Google Inc. ON/OFF

Asking for your consent

We use optional cookies only with your prior consent (Art. 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation). If you are visiting our website for the first time, a banner will appear on our website in which we ask for your consent to the use of optional cookies. If you give your consent to this, we will store a cookie on your computer and the banner will not be displayed again for the lifetime of the cookie. After that, or if you actively delete this cookie beforehand, the banner will be displayed again the next time you visit our website to ask for your consent again.

How to prevent the use of cookies

Of course, you can also use our website entirely without cookies. You can configure the use of cookies in the settings of your browser at any time or disable them completely. However, this may lead to restrictions in the functions or user-friendliness of our offer. You can object to the use of optional cookies at any time by using the corresponding objection option in the table above.

Website analysis

On this website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).

Google analyzes your use of this website on our behalf. For this purpose, we use cookies, among other things, which are described in detail in the cookie table above. The information collected by Google about your use of this website (e.g. the referring URL, pages visited on our site, the web browser you are using, your language preference, the operating system you are using or your screen resolution) is transferred to a Google server in the USA, stored there, analyzed and the result is made available to us in anonymized form. Your usage data will not be linked to your full IP address. We have activated the IP anonymization function offered by Google on this website, so that the last octet (type IPv4) or the last 80 bits (type IPv6) of your IP address are deleted. Google is also certified in the EU-US Privacy Shield, so that an appropriate level of data protection is ensured for data at Google in the USA.

You can revoke your consent to web analytics at any time by either downloading and installing the available browser plugin from Google or managing your consents in the table above, whereby an opt-out cookie is set. Both options prevent web analysis only as long as you use a browser on which you have installed the plugin or as long as you do not delete the opt-out cookie.
