We may use contract processors to process your personal data, but will not pass on your personal data to third parties.

3.2 Sessions and Cookies

We may use cookies or server-side sessions in which data can be stored to operate the website. Cookies are files that are stored on your hard drive by a website in order to automatically recognize this computer the next time you visit the website and thus adapt the use of the website to you. Some of the cookies used are deleted after the end of the browser session. These are so-called session cookies.

Please note that you may not be able to use some functions of this website if cookies are deactivated. We ensure that no personal data from sessions or through cookies is transferred and that cookies are only used if this is technically necessary for the website.

6. Third-party services

6.1 Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google and operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google"), and collects and stores via this web analytics service data from which user profiles are created using pseudonyms. The user profiles created in this way are used to evaluate visitor behaviour in order to design and improve the services presented on this website in line with requirements. Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are small text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to 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 where it will be shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google. Even the user profiles under a pseudonym are not merged with the personal data of the user without the express and separately declared consent of the user. Thus, the assessment shows that no overriding interests on your part conflict (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
You can also prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set to prevent your information from being collected on future visits to this website: Disable Google Analytics. You can view Google's privacy policy at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ . You can find more information about the terms of use and data protection at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html and http://www.google.com/intl/de/analytics/privacyoverview.html respectively. We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIp" in order to guarantee an anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).


6.2 Social media links

We have our own social media pages with the third-party providers that can be reached via links from this website. By using the links you will reach the respective websites of the third party providers (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, Google+). In order to avoid unnecessary data transfer, we recommend that you log out of the respective third-party provider yourself before using a corresponding link, so that usage profiles cannot be created by the third-party provider through the use of the link.

6.3 Use of Youtube

This website and the integrated offers contain so-called embeddings of videos on YouTube. These allow the connection to YouTube and the videos stored there. YouTube is an offer of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). No interests of the users are affected here, which outweigh this technical necessity of the integration of the videos (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). For the purpose and scope of data collection and use by Google, as well as your rights and settings to protect YouTube customers, please refer to YouTube's privacy policy. These can be found at: http://www.youtube.com/t/privacy/.

6.4 Google Web Fonts

We use so-called web fonts from Google in order to be able to show you a uniform font on our website. These are automatically saved in your browser cache when you call up one of our pages in order to enable the desired display. If your browser does not support the web fonts used, a standard font of your computer may be used. Here no interests of the users are concerned, which outweigh this technical necessity (art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You can view Google's privacy policy here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ Further information on Google Web Fonts can be found at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq

6.5 Use of Google ReCAPTCHA

This website uses the service reCAPTCHA of the company Google LLC,1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). The function is used to distinguish between input by a human being and misuse by automated, mechanical processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened by Google in advance 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. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha is not merged with other Google data. The processing thus serves to avoid the misuse of this website and is ultimately anonymous, so that the weighing of interests shows that no overriding interests on your part stand in the way of processing (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). It asserts Google's data protection guidelines, which can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de.

6.6 Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps, a map service provided by Google and operated by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). When Google Maps is used, data is also collected, processed and used about the use of the Maps functions by visitors to the websites. This does not affect the interests of users who outweigh the technical necessity of integrating interactive map material (Art. 6 I S. 1 f DSGVO). You can view Google's data protection information at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/ . You can view the additional usage information for Google Maps at http://www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html .
