Cookies and Tracking

3.1 General Information

3.1.1 What are Cookies?
In order to make our websites as user-friendly as possible and to increase the relevance of our advertising for the visitors of our websites, we and our partners use so-called “cookies”. Cookies are small files that are stored on a visitor’s hard drive. They allow information to be stored for a certain period of time and to identify the visitor’s computer. This is partly done using so-called tracking pixels, which are not stored on a visitor’s hard drive but can help identify the computer in the same way as a cookie. In the following, the term “cookie” shall refer to both cookies in the technical sense and tracking pixels and similar technical methods.

When you visit our website for the first time, you will see a notice on data protection on the welcoming page with the consent text relating to cookies. If you then continue to use the websites and do not object to the use of cookies, this consent will be saved on your browser so that we do not have to display this information again on every page. If this note is missing in your browser (e.g. if you have deleted your browser history), this note will be displayed again when you visit our website.

3.1.2 Which cookies do we use?
We use two categories of cookies on our websites: (1) Technically necessary cookies, without which the functionality of our websites would be restricted and (2) optional analysis, targeting or advertising cookies:

(a) Analysis, targeting and advertising cookies
Analysis cookies collect information about how visitors use a website in general, for example, which pages they visit most frequently and whether they receive error messages from websites. These cookies do not collect any data that can be used to identify visitors. All information collected with the help of these cookies serves exclusively to understand and improve the functionality and service of the website. We also use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. for analysing our websites. The information generated by Google Analytics about your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. However, IP anonymization is activated on this website, which means that Google will first shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the treaty on the European Economic Area.

Targeting and advertising cookies are used to tailor advertising more specifically to you and your interests. They also serve to limit how often you see the same ad, measure the effectiveness of an ad campaign and understand people’s behaviour after viewing an ad. These cookies are usually placed on the pages of advertising networks with the consent of the website operator (i.e. in this case by us). They recognize that a user has visited a website and pass this information on to other companies, e.g. advertising companies, or adjust advertising accordingly. They are often linked to a website functionality provided by this company. We therefore use these cookies to link to social networks that may then use the information about your visit to tailor advertising on other websites to you and to provide the advertising networks we use with information about your visit so that, based on your browsing behaviour, you can subsequently be presented with exactly the advertising that you are potentially interested in.

Disabling this category of cookies does not affect the functionality of our websites. We currently use cookies or tracking technology of this category from Google Analytics


Google Analytics

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. In general, the information generated through a cookie on your use of this website is transferred to a Google server in the US and saved there.

In case the IP has been anonymized on this website, however, Google will at first shorten your IP address within the European Union member states or in other states party to the treaty of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases, the full IP address will be transferred to the Google server in the US and abridged there. By order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to analyze your use of the website, to prepare reports on the website activities and to render further services associated with the use of the website and Internet to other website operators. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.

Through appropriate configuration of your browser software, you may prevent these cookies from being saved; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully use all functions of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

4. Right to object
You may object to the processing of data for marketing purposes at any time. This applies, in particular, to the use of your data for sending the marketing newsletter. We are then legally obliged to terminate the collection, processing and use of data.

If we process your personal data on the basis of a legitimate interest pursuant to Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR, you may object to such processing at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation. In this case, please contact the officer indicated in Para. 9 We will then check whether our legitimate interest in data processing also overrides in your case or whether your interests override due to your particular situation. In the latter case, we will stop processing your data pursuant to your objection. In this case we will not be able to process existing and possible future orders.

5. Transfer to third parties

5.1 Transfer of data to Processors
In some cases, we use service providers in compliance with statutory requirements by way of order processing, i.e. on our behalf, in accordance with our instructions and under our control.

Processors are in particular technical service providers whose services we make use of for the provision of the website and practical provision of our services, e.g. service providers for software maintenance, computer centre operation and technically necessary cookies. We also use processors for the practical implementation of advertising and marketing, e.g. service providers for sending emails and analysis cookies.

In these cases, we remain the responsible data controller; the transfer and processing of personal data to or by our processors is subject to the legal basis that allows us to process the data respectively. A separate legal basis is not required.


5.2 Data transfer to third parties
We not transfer your personal data to other third parties for marketing purposes.



We take appropriate technical and organisational measures, in particular to ensure that your personal data is protected against loss, incorrect changes or unauthorised access by third parties. The measures are constantly adapted to the improved technical possibilities.
