This website uses Google Analytics 4.0, a website traffic analysis service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland (“Google”).
So-called “cookies” are used by default when using Google Analytics 4.0. Cookies are text files, which are stored on your terminal device and enable an analysis of your use of a website.
In Google Analytics 4.0, the anonymisation of IP addresses is activated by default. Due to IP anonymisation, Google will truncate/anonymise the IP address for Member States of the European Union as well as for other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
On our behalf, Google will use this and other information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity or usage patterns, and for providing us with other services relating to your website activity and Internet usage.
Google Analytics 4 uses a special feature, the so-called “Demographics” function, to also enable the creation of statistics with statements about age, gender and interests of website users based on an evaluation of interest-based advertising and involving third-party provider information. As a result, it is possible to determine and distinguish user groups of the website for purpose targeted marketing measures. However, data collected via the “Demographics” feature cannot be assigned to a specific person and thus also not to you personally.
The data recorded through the use of Google Analytics 4 will be stored for 14 months and then deleted.
Any data processing described above, in particular placing Google Analytics cookies for storing and reading information on the terminal device you use to access the website, only takes place provided that you have given us your express consent in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (a) GDPR. Without your consent, Google Analytics 4 will not be used during your visit to the website.
You may revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by calling up the COOKIE SETTINGS and making changes to your settings there. The legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation is not affected by this.
Google Tag Manager is a solution that allows marketers to manage website tags through a web-based interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (which configures the tags) is a cookie-less domain and records no personal data. The tool triggers other tags, which in turn may record data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. Any disabling at the domain or cookie level will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/analytics/tag-manager/use-policy/.
You have the right to:
If your personal data is processed on the basis of legitimate interests in accordance with Article 6 (1) sentence 1 (f) GDPR, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data in accordance with Article 21 GDPR, provided that there are reasons for this arising from your particular situation or the objection is directed against direct advertising. In the latter case, you have a general right to object, which will be implemented by us without you having to specify a particular situation. If you would like to make use of your right of revocation or objection, simply send an e-mail to: dtnschtzbnslrd
Within the framework of website visits, we use the widespread SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) protocol in conjunction with the highest applicable encryption level supported by your browser. As a rule, this will be 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we use 128-bit v3 technology instead. You can tell whether an individual page of our website is transmitted in encrypted form by the ‘closed’ depiction of the key or lock symbol in the lower status bar of your browser. In other respects, we use the appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data from accidental or deliberate tampering, partial or complete loss, destruction, or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
