These are cookies from Google directly (Google Analytics cookies) and third-provider cookies (Double-Click cookies). The information produced by the cookie regarding your use of this website is usually transmitted to a server of Google in the USA and stored there. Google will also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or as far as third parties process these personal data based on the order of Google.

If internet protocol address anonymisation was activated on this website, your internet protocol address will be shortened by Google, however, within the member states of the European Union or in other states that are party to the Treaty on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will your full internet protocol address be transferred to a server of Google in the USA and abbreviated there. Note that Google Analytics has been expanded by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” on this website, in order to ensure anonymised recording of internet protocol addresses (IP masking).

On behalf of the provider of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide further services connected to website use and internet use towards the website operator, in particular functions for display advertising, such as Google Analytics reports for performance by demographic features and interests. Google will also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or as far as third parties process these personal data based on the order of Google. The Google-Analytics reports on performance by demographic features and interests use data obtained via interest-related advertising by Google and visitor data from third providers (such as age, gender, interest). The internet protocol address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data of Google.

The cookies are also used for the remarketing technology of Google Inc. This technology targets users who have already visited this website and are interested in the offer again with targeted advertising on the pages of the Google partner network. If users have given their consent to Google linking their internet and app browser histories to their Google accounts and to use information from their Google accounts in order to personalise ads, the remarketing function will take place device-comprehensively. To support this function, Google Analytics records Google-authenticated IDs of these users. These personal data are temporarily linked to the Google-Analytics data in order to form target groups. Google users can adjust their advertising settings under “My account” or deactivate personalised ads.

You may prevent storage of the cookies by making the corresponding settings in your browser software; however, note that you may be unable to fully use all functions of the website in such a case.

You may furthermore prevent recording of the data generated by the cookie and referring to your use of the website by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Section 8 Information on the personal data concerning you that are stored by us / erasure

As a data subject in connection with processing activities, you have the following rights from the GDPR:

  • You may demand information regarding processing of your personal data by us in accordance with Article 15 GDPR. In particular, you may request information on the purposes of the processing, the categories of personal data, the categories of recipients to whom your data have been or will be disclosed, the planned storage duration, the existence of rights to rectification, erasure, restriction of processing or objection, the existence of a right to lodge a complaint, the origin of your data if they were not collected by us, transfer to third countries or international organisations, and the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and any meaningful information on its details.
  • You may demand rectification of any inaccurate personal data stored by us or completion of these without undue delay in accordance with Article 16 GDPR.
  • You may demand erasure of your personal data stored by us as far as processing is not necessary in order to exercise the right to freedom of expression and information, to comply with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest or for assertion, exercise or defence of legal claims in accordance with Article 17 GDPR.
  • You may demand restriction of processing of your personal data as far as you contest the accuracy of the data, processing is unlawful, we no longer require the personal data and you decline their erasure because you still require them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims in accordance with Article 18 GDPR. The right from Article 18 GDPR also applies if you have objected to processing in accordance with Article 21 GDPR.
  • You may demand to receive your personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format or to demand transfer to another controller in accordance with Article 20 GDPR.
  • You may withdraw your consent once given to us towards us at any time in accordance with Article 7(3) GDPR. This has the consequence that we may no longer continue the processing activities based on this consent in future.
  • You have the right to file a complaint with a supervisory authority in accordance with Article 77 GDPR. Usually, you may contact the supervisory authority at your common place of residence, your workplace or our registered office for this.
