Cookies

Cookies are used on our website. Cookies are small pieces of text information that are stored on your end device via your browser. The cookies are required to enable certain functions of our website.

We use both session cookies, which are automatically deleted from your browser immediately after you have finished visiting the website. In the field of web analysis, however, we also use so-called persistent cookies, which are not automatically deleted after you have finished visiting our website.

You have the option of preventing the setting of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we would like to point out that the use of our website may then only be possible to a limited extent. Cookies do not install or start any programs or other applications on your computer.

The use of cookies is based on a balance of interests. Our interest is the user-friendly visit to our website.

Web analytics

The web analysis tool “Google Analytics” is used on this website. The purpose of the use is the "needs-based design" of this website, which is carried out on the basis of a weighing of interests. The web analysis also enables us to identify and correct errors on the website, e.g. due to faulty links. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and that enable an analysis of your use of the website. So-called "client IDs" are used, which are used to create pseudonymous user profiles that record the use of the website by a user using desktop computers and mobile devices.

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. Since we have activated the so-called IP anonymization on this website and have concluded a corresponding order processing contract with Google, 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 sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there.

Google is certified according to the so-called "Privacy Shield" (list entry). An appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed by Google.

You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link.

Google Webfonts

We use so-called Google web fonts on our website. Fonts are loaded from Google servers, which serve to improve the design of the website. The data processing takes place on the basis of a balance of interests, whereby our interest lies in an attractive design of the website.

The fonts in question are loaded from Google servers, which are usually located in the USA. The appropriate level of data protection is guaranteed by Google (list entry "Privacy Shield").

We process the aforementioned data for the operation of our website and for the fulfillment of contractual obligations towards our customers or the protection of our legitimate interests.

In the case of inquiries from you outside of an active customer relationship, we process the data for sales and advertising purposes. You can object to the use of your personal data for advertising purposes at any time.

Voluntary information

Data that you provide to us will not be passed on to third parties. In particular, your data will not be passed on to third parties for their advertising purposes.
