We statistically analyse anonymous information of this nature to optimise our Internet presence and the technology behind it. Legal basis: Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 Lit. f GDPR.

Like a lot of other websites, we also use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small text files that a webserver transmits to your hard drive.

Cookies cannot be utilised to start programs or to transmit viruses to a computer. Based on the information contained in the cookies, we can make your navigation easier and provide for the correct displaying of our web pages. In no case will we pass the recorded data on to any third party nor will we link it with personally identifiable information without your approval. Of course, you may also – in principle – browse our website without cookies. Most web browsers are by default configured such that they accept cookies.

Utilisation of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files that are stored on your computer, and which allow for an analysis of your utilisation of the website. The information that the cookie generates about your utilisation of this website is generally transferred to and stored on a server operated by Google in the USA. However, due to activation of IP anonymisation on these web pages, your IP address will be shortened first by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contract states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the complete IP address be transferred to a server of Google in the USA and then shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activities and for providing other services relating to website utilisation and internet usage to the operator of the website. The IP address transmitted by your browser – as part of Google Analytics – is not combined with other data of Google.

You can prevent the storage of cookies through a corresponding setting of your browser software; however, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use all features of this website to their fullest extent possible.

Utilisation of script libraries (Google Webfonts)

The calling up of script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. In this, it is theoretically possible – but presently not clear if and, where applicable, for which purposes – that the operators of the respective libraries are collecting data.
