Use of cookies
In addition to the above data, cookies or similar technology such as pixels (in the following "cookies"), are employed on your computer when you use and visit our website. The purpose of these is to make our internet offerings more user-friendly and efficient. Cookies are small text files or image files such as pixels which are downloaded by your browser onto your terminal in order to store certain information. The next time you go to our website from the same terminal, the information stored in the cookies will be returned either to our website ("first-party cookie") or to another website to which the cookie belongs ("third-party cookie").
By means of the stored and returned information, the website is able to recognise that you have already visited it from your terminal's browser. We use this information to structure and display the website in the best way, according to your preferences. In this process, only the cookie is identified on your terminal. Any further storage of personal data will only be made with your express consent, or where this is essential for correct use of the offered service requested by you.
This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which are also explained:
• Transient cookies
• Persistent cookies
Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser. In particular, they include the so-called session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, which allows the various requests made by your browser to be correlated with the same session. In this way, your computer is recognised if you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log off or close the browser.
Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a prescribed period, which may differ from cookie to cookie. You may always delete cookies in your browser's security settings.
Similarly, you may configure your browser settings in order to refuse third-party cookies or all cookies. We would point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website.
 
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files stored on your computer which permit analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. In the event of activation of IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be previously shortened by Google within the EU Member States or other Member States of the European Economic Treaty Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. Google will use this information on behalf of the website provider in order to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports of website activities and to provide the website provider with further services associated with use of the website and the Internet.
The IP address transferred from your browser by Google Analytics is not merged by Google with other data.
You may prevent the storage of cookies by appropriate adjustment of your browser software settings; but we would point out that in this case not all functions of the website may be available to their full extent. You may also prevent Google from acquiring data relating to your use of the website and generated by the cookie (including your IP address) and from subsequently processing them by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.

You may prevent acquisition of your data by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. An opt-out cookie will be inserted which prevents acquisition of your data on future visits to this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". This ensures the further processing of IP addresses in a shortened version, thus preventing a reference to persons. If a personal reference is assigned to data gathered about you, this will be immediately excluded and the data with the personal reference immediately deleted.
We use Google Analytics for the purpose of analysing the use of our website and making regular improvements. By means of the statistics collected, we are able to improve our offer and increase our interest to you as user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is GDPR Article 6 (1) (f).
