For uniform representation of fonts, this site uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly.

The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.

Outsourced data processing
We have entered into an agreement with Google for the outsourcing of our data processing and fully implement the strict requirements of the GDPR when using Google Analytics and other Google services.
Demographic features of Google Analytics
Our website uses Google Analytics’ demographic features. This enables reports to be generated containing statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based Google advertising and third-party visitor data. This collected data cannot be attributed to any specific individual person. You can deactivate this feature at any time by adjusting the ads setting in your Google account or generally forbid the collection of your data by Google Analytics.
Google Analytics Remarketing
Our website uses the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google Ads and Google Marketing Platform. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
We use this feature to link target audiences for promotional marketing created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google Ads and Google Marketing Platform. This allows advertising to be displayed based on your personal interests, identified based on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one device (e.g. your mobile phone), on other devices (such as a tablet or computer).
Once you have given your consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. That way, any device that signs in to your Google account can use the same personalized promotional messaging.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by deactivating personalized advertising in your Google account. Follow this link: https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated?hl=de

Google Ads and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising program provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google Ad, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website operator can tell that someone clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google Ad advertiser receives a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked via the website of an Ad advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ad advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Ads customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by adjusting your browser settings. In doing so, you then will no longer be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Conversion cookies are stored pursuant to Article 6 (1) lit. f of the GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
