1. Scope of data collection
Our websites use cookies. Cookies are text files that are stored in or by the web browser on the user’s computer system. If a user calls a website, a cookie may be stored on the user’s operating system. This cookie contains a characteristic string that allows the browser to be identified unambiguously when the website is called again.

Technically necessary cookies:

We use cookies to make our website more user-friendly. Some elements of our website require the browser calling it to be identified after the user moves to another page.

The following data can be stored in the cookies if required:

— Language settings
— Log-in information

Cookies used for analysis purposes:

We also use cookies, such as Google Analytics, on our website to enable analysis of users’ surfing behavior, without that being linked to a specific person. The user data collected in this way is pseudonymized using technical precautions. That means the data can no longer be used to identify the user calling the website. The data is not stored together with other personal data of users.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

If the IP anonymization is activated on this website, however, your IP address will be shortened beforehand 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. IP anonymization is active on this website. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google. Cookies are only set on our site on the basis of your consent. In addition, you can permanently prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent.
