During the mere informational use of our website, i.e. if you do not register or otherwise transmit information to us, we only collect data that your browser transmits to our server (so-called “server log files”). When you visit our website, we collect the following data, which is technically necessary for us to be able to display the website to you:

3) Cookies
In order to make the visit to our website attractive and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files that are stored on your terminal device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted at the end of the browser session, i.e. after you close your browser (so-called session cookies). Other cookies remain on your terminal device and enable us or our partner companies (third-party cookies) to recognize your browser on your next visit (persistent cookies). When cookies are set, they collect and process specific user information such as browser and location data and IP address values as required. Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a certain time, which may vary depending on the cookie.
If personal data is also processed by individual cookies set by us, the processing is carried out in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point b GDPR either to fulfill the contract or in accordance with Art. 6 (1) point f GDPR to protect our legitimate interests in the best possible functionality of the website and a customer-friendly and effective design of the page visit.

You will be informed individually and separately about the use of such cookies and the scope of the data collected in each case in the following sections.
Please note that you can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and you can decide individually about their acceptance or exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general.

5) Web analysis services
Google (Universal) Analytics
Google (Universal) Analytics
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 ESW5, Ireland (“Google”). Google (Universal) Analytics uses so-called cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there. When using Google (Universal) Analytics, personal data may also be transferred to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and excludes direct personal reference. Due to the extension, your IP address is 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. In these exceptional cases, the processing is carried out pursuant to Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical evaluation of user behavior for optimization and marketing purposes.
On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. 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. You can permanently prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google.
