We use the tracking methods listed below on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. With these tracking methods we want to ensure the needs-based layout and continuous optimisation of our website.

a) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc., https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/, (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter „Google“) for the purpose of needs-based design and continuous optimisation of our pages. In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie during your use of this website, i.e.

is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and a need-based layout of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of the company. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that identification is impossible. (IP masking). You can prevent the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. However, please note that in so doing, you may not be able to use the full functions of this website. You may also request a record of the data generated by the cookie, related to your use of the website (including your IP address), and prevent the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

b) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record and evaluate the use of our website in order to optimize it for you. Google Adwords inserts a cookie (see above) on your computer if you have accessed our website by using a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the insertion of a cookie required for this – for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic insertion of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the „www.googleadservices.com“ domain. Google’s privacy policy for conversion tracking can be found here https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html.
