    In the following, we describe how your personal data is processed using tracking technologies to analyze and optimize our services and for advertising purposes.
    You can make specific consent settings under Consent Settings / Cookies.
    The description of the tracking methods also includes information on how you can prevent or object to the data processing. Please note that the so-called “opt-out”, i.e. the refusal of processing, is usually stored via cookies. If you use our services via a new terminal device or in a different browser, or if you have deleted the cookies set by your browser, you will have to declare the opt-out again.
    If you wish to opt out of interest-based advertising, you can also visit the website, click on “Preference Management” and follow the instructions to opt out of the use of data for interest-based advertising by the service providers listed there, either entirely or individually. You will still receive advertising, but it will not be interest-based.
    The tracking methods presented process personal data only in pseudonymous form. A connection with a concrete, identified natural person, i.e. a combination of the data with information about the bearer of the pseudonym, does not take place.
    a. Purpose of the processing
    The analysis of user behavior by means of tracking helps us to check the effectiveness of our services, to optimize them and adapt them to the needs of users, and to correct errors. It also serves to statistically determine characteristic values about the use of our services (reach, intensity of use, users’ surfing behavior) – based on uniform standard procedures – and thus to obtain values that are comparable across the market.
    Tracking to measure the success of content and advertising campaigns serves to optimize our content and ads for the future and to enable marketers, advertisers and content providers to also optimize their content and ads accordingly. Tracking to optimize the playout of content and display of advertising has the purpose of showing users content and advertising tailored to their interests and relevant to them, to increase the success of the content and advertising and thereby also the (advertising) revenues.

b. Legal basis of processing
In the case of services that make the behavior of data subjects on the Internet traceable and in the case of the creation of user profiles, it is necessary to obtain informed consent as defined by the GDPR.
c. The tracking methods used in detail
Google Analytics
We use on the basis of our legitimate interests (i.e. interest in the analysis, optimization and economic operation of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC (“Google”). Google uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about the use of the online offer by the users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement and thus offers a guarantee of compliance with European data protection law.
Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate the use of our online offer by users, to compile reports on the activities within this online offer and to provide us with other services related to the use of this online offer and the Internet. In doing so, pseudonymous usage profiles of the users can be created from the processed data.
We only use Google Analytics with IP anonymization activated. This means that the IP address of users is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.
The IP address transmitted by the user’s browser is not merged with other data from Google. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by setting their browser software accordingly; users can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to their use of the online offer to Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:
Google Tag Manager
Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows us to manage so-called website tags via an interface (and thus, for example, integrate Google Analytics as well as other Google marketing services into our online offer). The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) does not process any personal data of the users. With regard to the processing of users’ personal data, please refer to the following information on Google services. Usage guidelines:
Google Doubleclick
We use DoubleClick, a service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA, “Google”). DoubleCklick uses cookies to serve user-based advertisements. Cookies are small text files that are stored in your browser when you visit our website and thereby allow your browser to be associated with us. The cookies recognize which ad has already been placed in your browser and whether you have accessed a website via a placed ad. In doing so, the cookies do not collect any personal information and cannot be associated with such. If you do not want to receive user-based advertising, you can deactivate the display of ads using Google’s ad setting. For more information on how Google uses cookies, you can read Google’s privacy policy:
Our website uses technology from Facebook (website Custom Audience) to collect or solicit information to provide measurement and to display ads targeted to audiences. Facebook Custom Audience generates a checksum from your usage data that is transmitted to Facebook. This non-personal data is used for targeted marketing purposes. For further information about the scope of the collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook Custom Audience, please refer to Facebook’s privacy policy:

Online presence in social media
We maintain online presences within social networks and platforms in order to be able to communicate with customers, interested parties and users active there and to inform them about our services there.
We would like to point out that user data may be processed outside the European Union. This may result in risks for users because, for example, it could make it more difficult to enforce users’ rights. With regard to U.S. providers that are certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they thereby undertake to comply with the data protection standards of the EU.
Furthermore, user data is usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. For example, usage profiles can be created from the usage behavior and resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used, for example, to place advertisements within and outside the platforms that presumably correspond to the interests of the users. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the users’ computers, in which the usage behavior and interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, data may also be stored in the usage profiles regardless of the devices used by the users (especially if the users are members of the respective platforms and are logged in to them).
The processing of the users’ personal data is based on our legitimate interests in effectively informing users and communicating with users pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for consent to the aforementioned data processing, the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a., Art. 7 DSGVO.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the opt-out options, please refer to the information of the providers linked below.
Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be asserted most effectively with the providers. Only the providers have access to the users’ data and can take appropriate measures and provide information directly. If you still need help, you can contact us.
Facebook Fanpage
Our Facebook Fanpage is operated under the URL, through which you can communicate with us. For all processing under this URL, the privacy policy of Facebook Inc. is relevant, which you can find here:
The legal basis for this data processing is Art. 6 para. 1 b) DSGVO. In this processing, our cooperation with Facebook is based on a joint responsibility agreement pursuant to Art. 26 DSGVO, which can be found at this URL:
Exception: If you provide us with personal data such as your name, email address or similar data via the communication channels provided by Facebook, for example to answer an inquiry, we also process this inquiry in our systems. This data is stored until the purpose of the request / communication is fulfilled and then deleted. Legal retention periods remain unaffected by this.
In addition to Facebook, recipients of your data may also be service providers that we use to ensure a quick and efficient response to your inquiries.
Plugins of the social network Instagram Inc, 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA, 94025, USA (“Instagram”) are integrated on our website. You can recognize the Instagram plugin by the “Instagram – Button” on our page.
If you click the “Instagram – Button” while you are logged into your Instagram – account, you can link the content of our pages on your Instagram – profile. This allows Instagram to assign the visit to our pages to your user account. We point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by Instagram.
