Use of Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thereby offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law (see ).
Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on our behalf for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link ( We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymised collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking). In addition, you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will then be set, which prevents the further collection of your data when visiting this website. This procedure is particularly recommended when accessing our site via mobile devices. You can find more information on the terms of use and data protection at or at
We base the use of the aforementioned analysis tool on Art. 6 para. 1 lit.f DSGVO: the processing is carried out to analyse user behaviour and is therefore necessary to protect our legitimate interests.

For the storage of profile documents, we use Google Docs, a service within the G-Suite program package of the provider Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google has submitted to the Privacy Shield agreement concluded between the European Union and the USA and has certified itself. Google thereby undertakes to comply with the standards and regulations of European data protection law. You can find more information in the following linked entry:
We have entered into an order processing agreement with Google for the use of G-Suite pursuant to Art. 28 DSGVO.

Use of Google marketing services

We use the marketing and remarketing services (Google Marketing Services for short) from Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The Google marketing services use cookies that are stored on your computer and enable us to display advertisements for and on our website in a more targeted manner in order to present users only with ads that potentially match their interests. For example, if you are shown ads for products that he or she has been interested in on other websites, this is called "remarketing". For these purposes, when you call up our website and other websites on which Google marketing services are active, a code is executed directly by Google and so-called (re)marketing tags are integrated into the website The information generated by the cookie or the tag about your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The data of the users are therefore generally processed pseudonymously within the scope of Google marketing services. This means that Google does not store and process the name or email address of the user, for example, but processes the relevant data in a cookie-related manner within pseudonymous user profiles. I.e. from Google's perspective, the ads are not managed and displayed for a specifically identified person, but for the cookie holder, regardless of who this cookie holder is. This does not apply if a user has expressly allowed Google to process the data without this pseudonymisation. The information collected about users by Google marketing services is transmitted to Google and stored on Google's servers in the USA. The Google marketing services we use include the online advertising programme "Google AdWords". In the case of Google AdWords, each AdWords customer receives a different "conversion cookie". Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained with the help of the cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The AdWords customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information with which users can be personally identified. We may integrate third-party advertisements based on the Google marketing service "DoubleClick". DoubleClick uses cookies to enable Google and its partner websites to serve ads based on users' visits to this website or other websites on the Internet. We may also use Google Tag Manager to integrate and manage Google's analytics and marketing services on our website. For more information on Google's use of data for marketing purposes, please visit the overview page:
Google's privacy policy is available at
If you wish to object to interest-based advertising by Google marketing services, you can use the settings and opt-out options provided by Google: We base the use of the aforementioned marketing services on Art. 6 para. 1 lit.a DSGVO.

Social plugins

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo. Information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service provider via these plugins and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin also triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We do not collect any personal data ourselves by means of the social plugins or about their use.
We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the provider's services is established and that at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. There is also the possibility that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.

Storage Period

The data stored by us will be deleted as soon as you revoke any consent or when the data is no longer required for its intended purpose and the deletion is not contrary to any legitimate interests or statutory retention obligations. If the data is not deleted because it is required for other and legally permissible purposes, its processing will be restricted. I.e. the data is blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to user data that must be retained for reasons of commercial or tax law. According to legal requirements, data is stored for 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 HGB (e.g. commercial letters, accounting vouchers, etc.) and for 10 years in accordance with § 147 para. 1 AO (e.g. commercial and business letters, tax-relevant documents).
