To provide you, as a user, with the most pleasant and convenient experience on our website, we occasionally use services from external service providers. Below, you have the opportunity to inform yourself about the data protection regulations regarding the use and implementation of these services and functions, so that you can exercise your rights with the service providers, if necessary.
Google Analytics is a service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and enable Google to carry out an analysis of the use of our offer. The information provided by the cookies on the use of our websites (including your IP address) are generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where they are stored. We should like to point out that Google Analytics has the additional code “gat._anonymizeIp();;” on our websites, so that the IP addresses can be recorded in an anonymised form (so-called IP masking). Therefore, with our permission, your IP address is recorded only in an abbreviated form, which guarantees that it is anonymised and that it is impossible to trace it back to you. In the case of the activation of IP anonymisation on our websites, your IP address is abbreviated in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union or within the other contracting parties to the Agreement across the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is your full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is then abbreviated. Google uses the aforementioned information to evaluate your use of our websites, to compile reports for us on the website activities and to provide us with further services linked to the use of websites and the internet. The IP address transmitted by your browser to Google Analytics is not amalgamated with other data held by Google. The forwarding of this data by Google to third parties is carried out only within the framework of statutory provisions or the processing of contractual data. Google will never amalgamate your data with other data held by Google. By using these websites, you declare that you agree to the processing of your personal data by Google and to the aforementioned type and manner of data processing as well as the purpose thereof already mentioned. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the settings in your browser software; however, we should like to point out that this may result in certain functionalities of our websites not being fully operational for you. You can also prevent the recording and processing of the data regarding your use of these websites collected by the cookie (incl. your IP address) by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin that is available at the following link.

This website uses the online advertising programme “Google AdWords”, which also includes conversion tracking. The cookie for conversion tracking is placed when a user clicks on an advertisement placed by Google. These cookies remain valid for 30 days only and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits specific pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google are able to see that the user has clicked on the advertisement and was directed to this webpage. Every Google AdWords client is given a different cookie. This means that cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords clients. The information obtained with the help of conversion cookies helps us to compile conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have opted for conversion tracking. These clients are given the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were directed to a page that contains a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that could help them to identify the individual users personally. Users who do not want to participate in tracking can easily deactivate the cookie for Google conversion tracking via the user settings in their internet browser. These users are then not recorded in the conversion tracking statistics. Find out more about Google’s Data Protection Provisions.
Our websites use Google Maps to display area maps and to create routes for journeys. Google Maps is operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. By using this website, you agree to the recording, processing and use of the data automatically collected by Google, or by one of its representatives or third-party suppliers, or the data supplied by you to Google, or one of its representatives or third-party suppliers. You will find the conditions of use for Google Maps at Google Maps Conditions of use. You will find further details at the data protection centre for google.de: Transparency and options as well as data protection provisions.
Our internet site uses social plugins (“plugins”) from different social networks. With the help of these plugins you can share contents or recommend products, for example. The plugins on our websites are deactivated as standard and therefore do not transmit any data. By clicking on the "Activate Social Media" button you can activate the plugins. Naturally, the plugins can be activated with a simple click as well.
If these plugins are activated, your browser creates a direct link with the servers of the relevant social networks as soon as they call up one of the websites in our internet presence. The contents of these plugins are transmitted directly to your browser and linked by this to the website.
By linking the plugins, the social network receives the information that you have called up via the corresponding page in our internet presence. If you are logged in to the social network, this can assign the visit to your account. If you interact with the plugins, for example, if you click the “Like” button on Facebook or leave a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted to the social network by your browser, where it is then stored.
Please consult the relevant networks and/or websites for details of the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by said social networks as well as their rights and setting options in this regard for the protection of your private sphere. You will find the relevant links below.
Even if you are not registered with the social networks, data can be sent to these networks by websites with active social plugins. A cookie with an identification key is set by an active plugin at every visit to the website. Since your browser automatically sends this cookie with every link to a network server, in principle it would be possible for the network to create a profile on which websites the user with this identification key has visited. And then it would also be absolutely possible to trace back this identification key later on to a person, via a subsequent registration with a social network, for example.
We use the following plugins on our websites:
If you do not want social networks to collect your data via active plugins, you can either deactivate the social plugins by simply clicking on our website or click on the function "Block cookies from third-party service providers" in your browser settings. Then your browser will not send any cookies to the server in the case of embedded contents of other providers. However, by enabling this setting it is possible that other cross-page functions will no longer operate, in addition to the deactivated plugins.

We use Adobe Analytics, a web analytics tool, on our website. The service provider is the American company Adobe Inc. The Irish company Adobe Systems Software Ireland Companies, 4-6 Riverwalk, Citywest Business Campus, Dublin 24, Ireland, is responsible for the European region.
Adobe also processes data from you in the USA, among other places. We would like to point out that according to the opinion of the European Court of Justice, there is currently no adequate level of protection for the transfer of data to the USA. This may pose various risks to the lawfulness and security of data processing.
As a basis for data processing with recipients located in third countries (outside the European Union, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, i.e. in particular the USA) or a data transfer there, Adobe uses so-called standard contractual clauses (see Art. 46 (2) and (3) DS-GVO).
Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) are templates provided by the EU Commission and are intended to ensure that your data complies with European data protection standards even if it is transferred to and stored in third countries (such as the USA). Through these clauses, Adobe undertakes to comply with the European level of data protection when processing your relevant data, even if the data is stored, processed, and managed in the United States. These clauses are based on an implementing decision of the EU Commission. You can find the decision and the corresponding standard contractual clauses here, among other places: https://eur-lex.europa.eu/eli/dec_impl/2021/914/oj?locale=en.
