When you revisit our website to utilise our services, the cookie automatically recognises that you have already visited our website and which entries and settings you undertook. This eliminates the need to do this once again.
The personal data processed by cookies is required for the stated purposes of safeguarding our legitimate interests as well as those of third parties in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure your browser to prevent cookies from being stored on your computer or so that you always receive a notification before a new cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may result in your not being able to use all of the features of our website.
- Analysis tools
We use the tracking measures described in the following on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR. The tracking measures we employ are used to ensure a needs-oriented design and ongoing optimisation of our website. We also use the tracking measures to record the use of our website for statistical purposes and evaluate its use for the purpose of optimising our offer for you. These interests are legitimate in the meaning of the above-mentioned regulation.
In the following, the respective data processing purposes and data categories are described for each of the corresponding tracking tools.
- a) Google Analytics
For the purposes of a needs-oriented design and the ongoing optimisation of our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”). As part of this, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see Section 4) are used. The information on your use of this website which is generated by a cookie, such as
operating system used,
referrer URL (the previously visited website),
host name of the accessing computer (IP address),
time of the server query,
is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, compile reports on website activities and provide additional services in connection with the use of the website and the internet for market research purposes and to ensure the needs-oriented design of these internet pages. This information may also be forwarded to third parties, provided this is required by law or to the extent that third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be combined with other data by Google. The IP addresses are anonymised so that allocation to your person is not possible (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies by making a corresponding setting in your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this event you may not be able to make full use of all functions on this website.
Furthermore, you can prevent Google from collecting data (including your IP address) generated by the cookie and regarding your use of the website as well as preventing their processing of this data by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB).
Alternatively to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can also prevent the collection of personal data by Google Analytics by clicking this link. This sets an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your personal data when you visit this website. The opt-out cookie is stored on your device and is only valid in this browser and only for our website. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you will need to set the opt-out cookie again.
Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics is available in Google Analytics Help (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).
b.) Google AdWords conversion tracking
We also use Google conversion tracking to record and evaluate the use of our website for statistical purposes and in order to optimise our offer for you. For this purpose, Google AdWords sets a cookie (see Section 4) on your computer, provided that you accessed our website via a Google advertisement.
These cookies expire after 30 days and do not identify you personally. If the user visits certain pages on the website of the AdWords customer and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Every AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As such, cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using conversion cookies is used to compile conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have decided to use conversion tracking. The AdWords customers are informed of the total number of users who clicked their advertisement and who were redirected to a website featuring a conversion tracking tag. They do not, however, receive any information which can be used to identify the user personally.
If you do not wish to be part of the tracking process, you can also reject the setting of a cookie required for this – for example via a browser setting that generally prevents the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies coming from the “www.googleadservices.com” domain. Google’s data protection notice on conversion tracking is available here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html).
We use the open-source software Matomo for the analysis and statistical evaluation of the use of the website. Cookies are used for this purpose (see Section 4). The information generated by the cookie on the use of the website is transferred to our servers and summarised in pseudonymised user profiles. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website and enable a needs-oriented design of our website. No information will be forwarded to third parties.
Under no circumstances will the IP address be combined with other user-related data. The IP addresses are anonymised so that allocation to your person is not possible (IP masking).

- Social media plug-ins
We use various plug-ins from social networks on our website in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f) GDPR for the purpose of making our company more widely known. The underlying commercial purpose shall be considered a “legitimate interest” within the meaning of the GDPR. Responsibility for operation in compliance with data protection guidelines shall be ensured by their respective provider. We use the so-called two-click method for the integration of these plug-ins in order to provide the best possible protection for visitors to our website.
- a) Facebook
Our website uses social media plug-ins for Facebook to personalise its use. To this end, we use the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button. This is an offering from Facebook.
When you access a page from our web presence that contains such a plug-in, your browser establishes a direct connection to Facebook servers. The content of the plug-in is transmitted to your browser directly from Facebook and integrated into the website by the browser.
By integrating the plug-in, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the respective page of our web presence, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not logged in to Facebook at that moment. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted directly from your browser to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.
Facebook can directly assign the visit to our website to your Facebook account if you are logged in to Facebook. When you interact with the plug-ins, for example by clicking the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information is also published on Facebook and displayed to your Facebook friends.
Facebook can use this information for advertising or market research purposes as well as for the user-oriented design of the Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates profiles on usage, interests and relationships, for example to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements displayed to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services related to the use of Facebook.
If you do not want Facebook to connect the data concerning your visit to our website with your Facebook account, you must log off Facebook before visiting our website.
The purpose and scope of the data collection, further processing and use of the personal data by Facebook, as well as your corresponding rights and setting options for protecting your privacy, can be obtained in Facebook’s data protection information (https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/).

Our website includes plug-ins of the micro-blogging network provided by Twitter Inc. (Twitter). The Twitter plug-ins (tweet button) are identified by the Twitter logo on our website. An overview of the tweet buttons is available here (https://about.twitter.com/resources/buttons).
When you access a page on our website which contains such a plug-in, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter thus receives the information that your IP address has accessed our website. If you are logged in to your Twitter account and you click the tweet button, you can link the contents of our pages with your Twitter profile. In this way, Twitter can connect the visit to our website to your account. We would like to point out that we, as the provider of the web pages, do not receive any information on the contents of the transmitted data and its use by Twitter.

Through this process, LinkedIn is informed exactly which page of our internet presence is being accessed. By clicking the LinkedIn Recommend button while logged into your LinkedIn account, you can link content from our website to your LinkedIn profile. This allows LinkedIn to connect your visit to our website with your LinkedIn account.
We have no control over the data that LinkedIn collects in this manner, nor over the scope of the data that LinkedIn collects.
