The following tracking measures used by us are executed based on Art. 6 Para. 1 Pg. 1 of the GDPR. With the utilization of these tracking measures, we aim to secure an appropriate design, layout and continuous optimization of our website. In addition, we use tracking measures to statistically analyze our website and to evaluate our offers to you for the purposes of optimization. These interests are legitimate according to the aforementioned legal code.
The particular data processing purposes and data categories can be gathered from the respective tracking tools.
i) Google Analytics
For the purposes of appropriate designing and continuing optimization of our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereafter known as “Google“). In this context, pseudonymized user profiles are created and cookies (see Paragraph 4) are used. The information created by these cookies about your use of this website, such as:
- Browser type/version,
- Operating system used
- Referrer URL (the site visited before ours)
- The host name of the accessing device (IP address)
- Time of the server request,
are sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information is used to analyze use of our website in order to generate reports about website activity and use of our website and the internet for the purposes of market research and the appropriate design of our internet sites. This information is also transmitted to third parties insofar as it is legally allowed or if said third parties are contracted to process the data. Under no circumstances will your IP address be combined with other data from Google. The IP addresses are anonymized so that they cannot be attributed to you (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies via your browser software’s settings; however, we would like to remind you that this can prevent you from being able to fully use all of the functions of this website.
Additionally, you can prevent the collection and processing of the data created by cookies while you browse this website by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).

It will set an opt-out cookie which will prevent future data collection when visiting this website and will be saved to your end device. The opt-out cookie is only valid for this active browser and only for our website, and will be stored on your device.

ii) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking
In order to statistically analyze our website and to optimize our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. This will set a cookie on your device if you landed on our website via a Google advertisement.
These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain websites of Adwords clients and the cookie is not yet expired, Google and its clients can see that the user has clicked on the ad and has been transferred to this website.
Each Adwords client receives another cookie. This means that cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of Adwords clients. The information acquired via conversion cookies serve to create conversion statistics for Adwords clients who have decided to use conversion tracking. Adwords clients receive the total number of users who have clicked on the advertisement and were transferred to the website with the conversion tracking tag. They will not receive any information with which they can personally identify users.
If you do not wish to participate in this tracking process, you can deny the required setting of a cookie, for example through browser settings which deactivate the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate the cookies used for conversion tracking by configuring your browser to block all cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”. You can find information from Google regarding conversion tracking here (https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html).
