We need cookies for the following purposes: statistical purposes and operation of the website

Web analysis 

Like almost all website operators, we use analytical tools in the form of tracking software to ascertain the number of users using our website and how frequently they visit.

This website uses “Webtrekk Analytics”, which is a product published by Webtrekk GmbH, Robert-Koch-Platz4, 10115 Berlin, used to collect statistical data regarding this web service and to optimise the service accordingly. It is a statistics program which makes an anonymous or pseudonymised record of usage. Using Webtrekk Analytics enables us to undertake a pseudonymised analysis of user behavior by collecting and analyzing information transmitted from your browser. None of the analyses relate to people and they are conducted anonymously or pseudonymously, i.e. personal identification features are replaced by an indicator for this purpose, making it impossible, or at least extremely difficult, for the person concerned to be identified. The IP address is thus anonymized immediately after processing and prior to being saved. The use of Webtrekk Analytics also involves the installation of cookies. You can opt out of future data collection and storage by Webtrekk Analytics at any time. To do this, please follow this link: https://www.webtrekk.com/en/index/opt-out-webtrekk/opt-out-registered/. Once the link is confirmed, an opt-out cookie is installed on your data medium. Please note that deleting all cookies on your will also delete this opt-out cookie, i.e. if you want to continue to opt out of data collection by Webtrekk Analytics, you will need to re-install the opt-out cookie. The opt-out cookie is installed for each browser and computer. If you visit our website from your home and workplace or if you use different browsers, you will need to enable the opt-out cookie in the various browsers and/or on the various computers that you use.

Using Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” on our website and, in this context, conversion tracking (visit action evaluation). Google Conversion Tracking is an analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your machine. These cookies have a limited validity, contain no personal data and are therefore not for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, there is no way that cookies can be tracked through the websites of advertisers.
The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. Here’s the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive information that personally identifies users. Processing is based on Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO from the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the impact and efficiency of this advertising.
You have the right, for reasons arising out of your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 6 (1) of the GDPR.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting appropriate technical settings of your browser software. We point out, however, that you may not be able to use all the features of this website in this case. You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
You can also opt out of personalized advertising in Google Ads Ads Settings. For instructions, see https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=en In addition, you can disable the use of third-party cookies by hijacking the Network Advertising Initiative opt-out page: //www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implement the further information about the opt-out mentioned there.

Usage-related advertising

The advertising displayed on this website is optimized for you through anonymously collected and processed data about how you use our services, so that you can see advertisements relevant to your interests. For this purpose, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are placed on your computer’s hard drive. They enable your computer to be recognized but do not permit you to be identified personally. Behavioral targeting is carried out by third-party companies which also run advertisements for the websites of other providers. These third-party companies then create the usage profile themselves using cookies and apply their respective targeting systems to select the data collected for the purpose of user-oriented advertising. We use the following company for this: Google (for search engine optimization an AdWords Conversion pixel is used).

Another option for disabling cookies with regard to usage-based advertising is offered by the BVDW preference manager, www.meine-cookies.org/cookies_verwalten/praeferenzmanager-beta.htmland the preference management of YourOnlineChoices, www.youronlinechoices.com/de/praferenzmanagement/, respectively the privacy settings of Google,https://policies.google.com/privacy
