Planned data transmission to third-party countries No data is currently being transmitted to third-party countries and there are no plans to do so in the future.
We use so-called “cookies” on our website. These are small text files that are sent from our web server to your computer to identify it for the duration of your visit. We do not collect any personal data via these cookies.
It is also possible to display our website without cookies being stored. You can deactivate cookie storage in your browser settings or set it so that you are informed about the intended storage of cookies by a website. In this case, you can decide whether or not to accept cookies. However, for technical reasons, it is necessary to allow temporary cookies to enable our website to function in full.
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service by Google Inc. (“Google”). As a result, data is collected and stored from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. These usage profiles are used to analyse visitor behaviour and are evaluated for the improvement and demand-oriented design of our website.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files stored on your computer, to allow the analysis of how you use the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including parts of your IP address) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google shall use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity for website operators and provide other services relating to website and Internet usage. Google may also transmit this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google. Under no circumstances will Google connect your IP address with other Google data. We shall also not combine the pseudonymised user profiles with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without your express consent. Data collection for the usage statistics and transmission to Google shall take place with the extended code “gat._anonymizelp();”. The collection of IP addresses is therefore anonymised (so-called IP masking).
In addition, you may prevent Google from collecting and processing data about your use of this website (including parts of your IP address) by downloading and installing the available browser plug-in from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout
