We use cookies on our website. Cookies are text files that are stored in the internet browser or by the internet browser on the user’s computer system. When you visit a website, a cookie may be stored on your operating system. This contains a characteristic string of characters that enables the browser to be uniquely identified when the website is called up again.

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require that the browser can be identified even after a page change. 

German Act on the Regulation of Data Protection and the Protection of Privacy in Telecommunications and Telemedia (TTDSG):

The legal basis for the storage of cookies, device identifiers and similar tracking technologies or for the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment and access to this information is the European ePrivacy Directive in conjunction with the German Act Governing Data Protection and Privacy in Telecommunications and Telemedia (TTDSG). 

Please note that the legal basis for the processing of personal data collected in this context then results from the GDPR (Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 GDPR). The relevant legal basis for the processing of personal data in a specific case can be found below the respective cookie or the respective processing itself.  

The primary legal basis for the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment – in particular for the storage of cookies – is your consent, § 25 (1) sentence 1 TTDSG. Consent is given when you visit our website – although this does not have to be given, of course – and can be revoked at any time in the cookie settings.  

Pursuant to § 25 (2) no. 2 TTDSG, consent is not required if the storage of information in the end user’s terminal equipment or the access to information already stored in the end user’s terminal equipment is absolutely necessary in order for the provider of a telemedia service to be able to provide a telemedia service expressly requested by the user. You can see from the cookie settings which cookies are to be classified as absolutely necessary (often also referred to as “technically necessary cookies”), and therefore fall under the exemption regulation of § 25 (2) TTDSG and therefore do not require consent. 

Cookie consent with Cookieyes

This website uses the cookie consent tool “CookieYes” provided by Mozilor Limited (hereinafter “CookieYes”) to obtain valid user consents for cookies and cookie-based applications. By including an appropriate JavaScript code, users are shown a banner when they access a page in which consent to certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box. The tool blocks all cookies requiring consent until the individual user gives appropriate consent. This ensures that cookies are only set on the user’s end device if consent has actually been given.

In order for the cookie consent tool to be able to clearly assign page views to individual users and to individually record, log and store the consent settings made by the user for a session, certain user information (including the IP address) is collected by the cookie consent tool when our website is called up, then transmitted to the CookieYes servers and stored there.

For more information about CookieYes’ use of data, please see CookieYes’ privacy policy:

In this respect, the basis for the data processing is Art. 6 (1) lit. c GDPR, which permits the processing of data for the fulfilment of a legal obligation to which the controller is subject.

Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through one interface. The tool itself (which implements the tags) does not use cookies and only collects your IP address out of technical necessity. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may set cookies and collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager.

If we have obtained your consent, the legal basis for the use of Google Tag Manager is Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit a GDPR. Otherwise, the legal basis for the use of the technically necessary cookie results from our legitimate interest according to Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. f GDPR.

Google Ads Conversion (formerly Google AdWords Conversion)

We use Google Ads to draw attention to our attractive offers on external websites with the help of advertising media (so-called Google Ads). We can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns. In this way, we pursue the interest of showing you advertising that is of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and achieving a fair calculation of advertising costs.

These advertisements are delivered by Google via so-called “ad servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, which can be used to measure certain parameters for measuring success, such as the display of the ads or clicks by users. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Ads will store a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. The unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (marking that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values for this cookie.

These cookies enable Google to recognise your internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Ads customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer will be able to recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to that page. A different cookie is assigned to each Ads customer. Cookies can therefore not be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. These evaluations enable us to recognise which of the advertising measures used are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of the advertising tools; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of Ads Conversion, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will obtain and store your IP address.

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways: 

(a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly; in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies will result in you not receiving advertisements from third-party providers; 

b) by disabling conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads , which setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; 

c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices , whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; 

d) by permanently deactivating them in your Firefox, Internetexplorer or Google Chrome browsers at the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. We would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer to their full extent.

The legal basis for the processing of your data is your consent Art. 6 (1) p. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Google Dynamic Remarketing

We use the Google Dynamic Remarketing application. This is a procedure with which we would like to address you again. This application enables us to display our advertisements to you when you continue to use the internet after visiting our website. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which Google uses to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when you visit various websites. In this way, Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not combine the data collected in the course of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google. In particular, according to Google, pseudonymisation is used in remarketing.

You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways: 

(a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly; in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies means that you will not receive any third-party ads; 

b) by disabling conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”, https://www.google.de/settings/ads , which setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies; 

c) by disabling the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the self-regulatory campaign “About Ads” via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices , whereby this setting will be deleted when you delete your cookies;

Google DoubleClick

This website continues to use the online marketing tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to serve ads that are relevant to users, to improve campaign performance reports, or to prevent a user from seeing the same ads more than once. Google uses a cookie ID to record which ads are shown in which browser and can thus prevent them from being shown more than once. In addition, DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that are related to ad requests. This is the case, for example, when a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later calls up the advertiser’s website with the same browser and buys something there. According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information.

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with Google’s server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Google through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our state of knowledge: Through the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding part of our website or clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider will obtain and store your IP address.

Facebook Custom Audiences / Facebook Pixel

Furthermore, the website uses the “Custom Audiences” remarketing function of Facebook Inc (“Facebook”). This enables users of the website to be shown interest-based advertisements (“Facebook Ads”) when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use this procedure. In this way, we pursue the interest of showing you advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you. 

Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Facebook server. We have no influence on the scope and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: Through the integration of Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have accessed the corresponding web page of our website or clicked on an ad of ours. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can assign the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address and other identifying features. 

The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 (1) sentence 1 lit. a GDPR.
