Every time you access our website, we automatically process the following information:

  • the IP-address of your computer or other device (e.g. tablet-PC or smartphone) and the request(s) of your browser (including dates and times)
  • the amount of data transferred, the browser type and version, the screen resolution and the operating system used.

The IP-address and the information on your Internet browser’s enquiry(s) are technically necessary for accessing and using the website; without processing of this data, access to the Internet site cannot take place and Internet sites cannot be displayed. The IP-address will be made anonymous by shortening it or deleted after it is no longer technically necessary for accessing or using the internet page.

The information on the transferred data volume, the browser type and browser version, the screen resolution and the operating system used are collected and processed in log-files in order to optimize the presentation of the contents, determine system utilization and make future adjustments and improvements to the Internet presence, possibly on the basis of statistical evaluations.

The data will be deleted as soon as it is no longer necessary to achieve the purpose for which they were collected. In the case of the collection of data for the provision of the website, this is the case when the respective session has ended. Log files are deleted or made anonymous after seven days at the latest, so that an identification of the accessing client is no longer possible.

Legal Basis:

The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR. The legitimate interest in the data processing is to technically enable you to access the website, to optimize the representation of the website’s contents and for the future improvement/optimization of the website.

Cookies are small text files that are stored locally on the visitor’s device (e.g. PC, smartphone, tablet PC) when visiting a website. They can contain various information about the device used and the user behavior and are sent back to the cookie-setting web server with the aim of recognizing the user and his or her settings when re-visiting.

4. Google Analytics

Explanations and Purposes of Data Processing:

We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountainview, California 94043, USA (“Google”). On the basis of a controller-processor-agreement, Google collects  and processes certain user and usage information, combines it into pseudonymized user profiles and stores it in cookies (see above). This includes, for example, information about the browser type/version used, the operating system used, screen resolution, referrer URL (the previously visited page), anonymized IP address of the accessing computer, time of server inquiry, downloaded files, videos viewed, advertising banners clicked, orders placed, click paths, frequency of page views, entry and exit pages, length of time spent on individual pages, etc.. This is done for the purpose of statistical evaluation with a view to the future optimization of the website design and its contents.

This information is transmitted to a Google server, which may be located in the USA, and stored there. Google is committed to complying with the EU-US Privacy Shield Agreement published by the US Department of Commerce on the collection, use and retention of personal data from EU Member States, ensuring an adequate level of protection for transfers to the US. The certificate can be accessed at https://www.privacyshield.gov/participant?id=a2zt000000001L5AAI&status=Active .

We have activated an IP anonymization tool, which means that Google Analytics generally shortens your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thus transmits it anonymously. Being a processor pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR, Google is the recipient of the personal data.

The collected information is collected in order to statistically evaluate the use of our website in aggregated form, to create reports on website activities and the behavior of users on our website and to provide us with further analysis services associated with the website and its use, e.g. on the effect of online marketing campaigns. This serves to design and continuously optimize our website in line with requirements. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

The maximum storage period selected by us for data collected via Google Analytics is 14 months. At the end of this period, the data will be deleted automatically.

Prevention of the storage of cookies:

The saving of cookies can be prevented by changing the browser settings accordingly; also, saved cookies can be deleted by you via your browser. This may mean that certain functionalities of the called-up website cannot be used at all or cannot be used comfortably.

In addition, you can

  • prevent the collection and transmission of data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
