No server log files are evaluated in association with an individual person. The provider is not able to associate the data with any specific person or persons at any time. The data is not merged with data from any other sources.
2.2 We use the remarketing technology of Google AdWords as well as Google Tag Manager, an advertising platform of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (hereinafter, “Google”). Using pseudonyms, users who have visited our website are approached again with targeted advertising on the pages of the Google partner network. Cookies can be used for this purpose (see 5. below), which make it possible to recognize an Internet browser again. These usage profiles are helpful in the analysis of the behavior of visitors and are used to target product recommendations and prospective customer-based advertising. The pseudonymized usage profiles are not combined with personal data concerning the person referred to by the pseudonym without the explicit and separately granted consent of that person. If and when Google transmits data to the United States in this context, Google is bound by the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). The legal basis for our use of Google AdWords is Article 6 (1) p. 1 f) of the GDPR. You can object to the collection and storage of your data for web analysis and marketing purposes at any time with effect in the future by activating Google’s deactivation link available at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. For more information on Google remarketing and to view Google’s privacy statement, please refer to http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/.
2.3 This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google. Google Analytics uses text files, referred to as cookies, which are saved on your computer to facilitate analysis of your website use. The information generated by cookies (see item 5. below) regarding your use of this website typically is transmitted to and saved on a Google server located in the United States. If and when IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will truncate your IP address for transmission among member states of the European Union or to other member states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will your full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and then truncated. At the request of the operator of this website, Google will use the information to evaluate your use of this website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide the operator of this website with other services relating to website activity and Internet use (see description of Google AdWords’ remarketing technology in item 2.2 above). The IP address transmitted from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, please note that if you do so you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.
In addition, you can object to Google’s collection of data generated by cookies which data relates to your use of this website (including your IP address) as well as to Google’s processing of the data. To do so, download and install the browser plug-in available at http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
In view of the discussion about the use of analysis tools with full IP addresses, we hereby inform you that this website uses Google Analytics with the addendum _anonymizeIp(). This means that IP addresses are truncated before being processed and cannot be associated with individual persons. Please click this link, particularly if you are using a browser on a mobile device, to prevent the anonymized collection by Google Analytics for your browser on this website in the future through opt-out cookies.
In connection with Google Analytics we also use the functions of Google Signals, a service Google uses to provide reports about the number of users across devices and about diverse groups of users based on various device combinations used. To prepare these reports, Google uses data provided by users who activated the Personalized Advertising option in their Google account settings. Google Signals only is used with activated IP anonymization. This means that users’ IP addresses are truncated for transmission among member states of the European Union or to other member states of the European Economic Area. Because truncated IP addresses cannot be associated with individual persons, no assumptions can be made regarding the identity of individual users. If you object to the collection of data by Google Signals, you can deactivate the Personalized Advertising option in your Google account settings at any time: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de.
We use Google Analytics to analyze and enhance the use of our website regularly. The resulting statistics allow us to improve our offerings and make them more interesting for you, the user. In exceptional cases in which personal data is transmitted to the United States, Google is bound by the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework). The legal basis for our use of Google Analytics including Google Signals is Article 6 (1) p. 1 f) of the GDPR.
2.5 We use the services of Google Maps on this website to allow us to display interactive maps directly on the website and thus facilitate your convenient use of the map function. The legal basis for our use of Google Maps is Article 6 (1) p. 1 f) of the GDPR.
When you visit this website, Google will be notified that you have accessed the respective page. In addition, the data specified in 2.1 above will be transmitted regardless of whether you have logged into a user account created for you by Google. When you log into Google, your data will be associated directly with your account. If you do not want your data to be associated with your Google profile, log out before activating the button. Google will save your data in its user profiles and will use it on a needs basis for promotional and/or market research purposes and/or to design its website. In particular, these analyses are conducted (even for users who have not logged in) for the purposes of publishing needs-based advertising and to inform other users of the social medium of your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles; contact Google if you wish to exercise this right.
For more information regarding the purpose and scope of the collection and processing of data by the provider of the plugin and for details on your rights in this regard and on the privacy protection settings you can select, please refer to the provider’s privacy statement available at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

To this end, we pseudonymize (hash) e-mail addresses, for example, and compare them with a pool of pseudonymized e-mail-addresses. This allows us to link your devices and/or environments and offer you seamless user experiences on the devices and/or environments you are using.
You may refuse the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, please note that if you do so you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.
