This website uses Google Analytics, a Google Inc. web analysis service (hereinafter referred to as Google). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files stored to your computer and that allow your use of our website to be analysed. The information generated through the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is saved. However, because IP anonymisation is activated on these websites, your IP address is first shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other treaty states of the European Economic Union. Your full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA in exceptional cases, where it is shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to assess your use of the website, to create reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services linked with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser by Google Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
The purpose of this data processing is to evaluate the use of the website and to create reports on activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the internet, further related services are then provided. The processing is in the legitimate interest of the website operator.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by making the appropriate changes to your browser settings; however, we would like to inform you that you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website. In addition, you can prevent the collection of the data created by the cookie and the data related to the use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the Google Analytics opt-out browser add-on, available under the following link:https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout/eula.html
In addition, or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent Google Analytics from tracking you on our website by clicking this link. This installs an opt-out cookie to your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting data for this website and this browser in the future, as long as the cookie is installed in your browser.
This website uses Adobe Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Adobe Systems Software Ireland Limited (hereinafter referred to as “Adobe”). Adobe Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files stored to your computer and that allow your use of our website to be analysed. If a tracking data set is transmitted to the Adobe data centre from the browser of a website user, this will safeguard the service settings undertaken by us that anonymises the IP address prior to geo-location, which means that the last octet of your IP address is replaced by zeroes. Before the tracking package is saved, the IP address is replaced by individual generic IP addresses.
On behalf of the operator of this website, Adobe will use this information to assess the user’s use of the website, to create reports on website activities and to provide the website operator with further services related to the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser by Adobe Analytics is not combined with other Google data.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by making the appropriate changes to your browser settings. However, we would like to inform you that you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website should you choose to opt out of cookies. In addition, users can prevent the collection of the data created by the cookie and the data related to the use of the website (including their IP address) by Adobe as well as the processing of this data by Adobe by downloading and installing the browser plug in available under the following link:https://www.adobe.com/privacy/opt-out.html
Our website uses tracking pixel technology by WiredMinds AG (https://www.wiredminds.de/en/) to analyse user behaviour.
As a part of this process, data is collected, processed and saved, and this is used to create a pseudonymised usage profile. Whenever possible and effective, these usage profiles are fully anonymised. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are saved in the user’s internet browser and used to recognize the internet browser. The collected data, which can also contain personal data, is transferred to WiredMinds or collected directly by WiredMinds. WiredMinds can use information that is created through website visits to create anonymised usage profiles. Data acquired in this way is not used to personally link the visitor to this website without the express consent of the data subject, and it is not combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Any IP addresses recorded are anonymised immediately by deleting the last number block.
In order to be able to provide a graphically correct display of our content across all browsers, we use script libraries on our website, as well as font libraries such as Google Webfontshttps://fonts.google.com/.Google Webfonts are used to avoid multiple loading to your browser cache. If your browser does not support Google Webfonts or denies access, content will be displayed using a standard font.
The calling of script libraries or font libraries automatically initiates a connection to the operator of the library. In theory, it is thereby possible (however, it is currently also unclear whether and to what purpose) that the operators of the respective libraries will collect data.
For the data protection guidelines of the library operator Google, click here:https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The operator of the respective plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit a page that has a YouTube plug-in, a link will be created to the YouTube servers. This informs YouTube of which pages you are browsing. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can connect your browsing behaviour to your personal identity. You can prevent this by first logging out of your YouTube account.
If you start a YouTube video, the provider will set cookies that collect information on usage behaviour
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google ad programme, you will not have to worry about these cookies when viewing YouTube videos. However, YouTube also collects usage data that is not connected to your person in other cookies. If you would like to prevent this, you have to block the saving of cookies to your browser.
This website uses Google Inc.’s remarketing functionality. This is used to display targeted advertising to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called cookie is saved to the website user which makes it possible to recognise the user when s/he accesses websites that belong to the Google advertising network. Advertisements can be displayed to the user that contain content that the user has previously accessed on websites that use Google’s remarketing functionality.
