Web-Analysis with Google Analytics

Our online systems use functions from the web analysis service Google Analytics provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereafter referred to as “Google”).

This process uses cookies in order to analyse usage of the website by its users (including your IP address). The information thereby generated will as a rule be transmitted to the Google server in the USA and saved/stored there.

In the event that IP address anonymisation has been activated for web content, the address will as a rule be abbreviated in advance within the EU. However, it is possible in specific exceptional cases that the entire IP address may first be transferred to the USA - to a Google server - and only abbreviated there. Information on the anonymisation of IP addresses can be found directly from Google at

You can prevent data from being captured by Google by adjusting your browser settings in such a manner so as not to save/store any cookies. In order to do so, you can for example download and install a browser plugin directly from Google:

Google Remarketing and Conversion Tracking

Our websites use temporary or permanent functions of Google AdWords (an online marketing and advertising tool) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

By using cookies, adverts are displayed to users in a targeted manner on other homepages within the so-called Google display network.

In addition, our websites use temporary or permanent “Google Conversion-Tracking”, for which cookies are used and stored in order to identify users.

You can adjust the settings for the Google display network under the following link:


Google Maps

Our websites also use functions from the map service Google Maps provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

When using Google Maps, data will also be collected, processed and used by Google concerning the usage of map functions by visitors to the current websites.

Further information on data processing by Google can be found in the Privacy Policy at

You can also change your settings there in the Google “data protection centre”, thus enabling you to manage and protect your data.



Our websites also use extensions in various places from the platform YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, operated by Google.

This involves the embedding of videos from the YouTube platform on our websites, as a result of which a direct connection will be created with YouTube servers, which will be notified of the pages of our online content that you have visited.

Further information can be found in the YouTube Privacy Guidelines:



Data will be collected by the server concerning access to the website and stored using so-called “server log files”.

The following data will be recorded:

  • the time of the access
  • the volume of data transmitted in bytes
  • the source/referring page from which you visited the site

The data collected will be used solely for statistical analysis, in order to improve the website and will be stored solely and exclusively on the web server. However, the operator of the website reserves the right to examine the server log files at a later date in the event of any specific indications of unlawful usage.



SSL encryption is used in order to protect your data transmitted in the best manner possible. You can recognise connections that are encrypted in this manner from the prefix “https://” in the address bar of your browser. Unencrypted pages start with “http://”.

All data that you transmit to this website – such as queries or log ins – cannot be read by third parties, thanks to SSL encryption.
