The tracking measures listed below and used by us are carried out on the basis of Article 6 Paragraph 1 Sentence 1 Letter f of the GDPR.

On the other hand, we use tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offering for you. These interests are to be viewed as legitimate within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.

The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.

a) Google Analytics1

For the purpose of needs-based design and ongoing optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”). In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies (see section 5) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

Browser type/version,

operating system used,

Referrer URL (the previously visited page),

Host name of the accessing computer (IP address),

time of server request,

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and internet use for the purposes of market research and the needs-based design of these websites. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of you. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that assignment is not possible (IP masking).

You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly; However, we would like to point out that in this case not all functions of our website may be able to be used to their full extent.

You can also prevent the collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https: //tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).

Further information on data protection in connection with Google Analytics can be found under the following link in the Google Analytics help: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de

b) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

In order to statistically record the use of our website and evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website for you, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. Google Adwords sets a cookie (see section 5) on your computer if you came to our website via a Google ad.

These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages on the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.

Every Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of Adwords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Adwords customers find out the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not want to take part in the tracking process, you can also refuse the necessary setting of a cookie - for example by using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies. You can also deactivate cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com”. Google's data protection policy on conversion tracking can be found at the following link: https://services.google.com/sitestats/de.html

8. Social media plugins

The underlying advertising purpose is to be viewed as a legitimate interest within the meaning of the GDPR. The responsibility for data protection-compliant operation must be ensured by the respective provider. We integrate these plugins using the so-called two-click method in order to best protect visitors to our website.

By integrating the plugins, Facebook receives the information that your browser has accessed the corresponding page on our website, even if you do not have a Facebook account or are not currently logged in to Facebook. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted from your browser directly to a Facebook server in the USA and stored there.

If you are logged in to Facebook, Facebook can assign your visit to our website directly to your Facebook account. If you interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the “LIKE” or “SHARE” button, the corresponding information is also transmitted directly to a Facebook server and stored there. The information will also be published on Facebook for everyone to see.

Facebook can use this information for the purposes of advertising, market research and needs-based design of the Facebook pages. For this purpose, Facebook creates usage, interest and relationship profiles, e.g. B. to evaluate your use of our website with regard to the advertisements shown to you on Facebook, to inform other Facebook users about your activities on our website and to provide other services related to the use of Facebook.

If you do not want Facebook to assign the data collected via our website to your Facebook account, you must log out of Facebook before visiting my website.

The purpose and scope of data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook as well as your related rights and setting options to protect your privacy can be found in the data protection information, in particular Facebook's data policy, which you can view under the following link: https:// www.facebook.com/about/privacy/

When you access a page on our website that contains such a plugin, a direct connection is established between your browser and the Twitter server. Twitter thereby receives the information that you have visited our site with your IP address. If you click the Twitter “tweet button” while logged into your Twitter account, you can link the content of our pages to your Twitter profile. This allows Twitter to assign your visit to our pages to your user account.

c) Google “+1” button

Our website uses the “+1” button from the social network Google, which is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA. The button is marked with a “+1″”.

The “+1” button is shorthand for “”that’s pretty cool”” or “”look at that””. The button is not used to track your visits to the web.

If a web page on our website contains the “+1” button, your Internet browser will load and display this button from the Google server. The website you visit on our website is automatically communicated to the Google server. When you display a +1 button, Google does not log your browser history permanently, but only for a period of up to two weeks.

Google stores this data about your visit for this period for system maintenance and troubleshooting purposes. However, this data is not structured according to individual profiles, usernames or URLs. This information is also not accessible to website publishers or advertisers. The use of this information is only for maintenance and troubleshooting of internal systems at Google. Your visit to a page with a +1 button will not be evaluated in any other way by Google.

There is no further evaluation of your visit to a website on our website with a “+1” button.

+1ing itself is a public process, meaning anyone who performs a Google search or views content on the web that you +1 can potentially see that you +1ed that content. Therefore, only give a +1 if you are absolutely sure that you want to share this recommendation with the whole world.

Clicking on this +1 button serves as a recommendation for other users in Google's search results. You can publicly say that you like our website, that you approve of our website or that you recommend our website. If you have registered for Google+ and are logged in, the +1 button will turn blue when you click on it. The +1 will also be added to the +1 tab in your Google profile. On this tab you can manage your +1 and decide whether you want to make the +1 tab public.

In order to save your +1 recommendation and make it publicly accessible, Google collects information about the URL you recommended, your IP address and other browser-related information via your profile. If you withdraw your +1, this information will be deleted. All of your +1 recommendations are listed on the +1 tab in your profile.

Further information and Google's applicable data protection regulations can be found at https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. Further information from Google regarding the Google+1 button can be found under the link https://developers.google.com/+/web/buttons-policy
