On our web pages we sometimes use so-called Cookies. Cookies are small text files which enable us to store specific information relating to you as the user whilst visiting our web pages. Cookies do not cause any harm to your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies help us to determine user frequency and the number of users visiting our web pages, as well as to make our offers as comfortable and efficient as possible for you as user.
The cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. These are stored temporarily in your browser’s subfolder while you are visiting one of our web pages. In addition, we also use “persistent cookies” to retain information about visitors who access our web pages repeatedly. These cookies are used by us to be able to provide you with optimum user guidance, to “recognise” you and to be able to present to you a website with as much variety as possible and with new content. Persistent cookies only contain an identification number. Name, IP address etc. will not be stored. There will be no individual profile set up to track your user behaviour.
You can also take advantage of our offers without cookies. In this respect it is possible to deactivate storing the cookies in your browser or to restrict them to certain web pages. Besides, you can also set your browser to inform you when a cookie is sent. You are also able to delete cookies at any time from your computer’s hard disk.

Privacy statement for the use of Google Analytics
Functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics are in use on our web pages. Provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”. These are files which are stored on your computer and enables us to analyse your use of the respective web pages. The information about your use of our web pages, generated by the cookie, are generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, if IP anonymisation is activated on our web pages, your IP address will be shortened beforehand in the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your use of our web pages, in order to generate reports regarding web page activity and to provide us with further services connected with web page and internet usage. The IP address transmitted from your browser to Google Analytics will not be combined with other Google data.

Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
We use the online advertising programme “Google AdWords” and within Google AdWords the Conversion Tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analytical service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google“). When you click on an advertisement placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking purposes will be stored on your computer. These cookies are only valid for 30 days, contain no personal data and, therefore, do not serve as personal identification.
When you visit our web pages and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognise that you have clicked on the advertisement and were directed to the specific page you visited. Each Google AdWords client is given a different cookie. Thus, it is not possible to track the cookies via the web pages of AdWords clients. The information gained with the help of the conversion cookie helps to record conversion statistics for AdWords clients who have chosen to use Conversion Tracking. With this, the clients are informed about the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisement and were forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information which could personally identify the user.
If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process you can object to its use by preventing the installation of the cookies using the corresponding setting in your browser software (deactivation option). You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. You will find further information regarding the Google privacy statement at: http://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/, http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
Use of the Google Tag Manager
We use the Google Tag Manager. This is a solution with which the marketer can administer web page tags via a user interface. The Tool Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-free domain which does not record personal data. With the help of this tool other tags are released which can, potentially, record data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If the user has deactivated this on domain or cookie level, this is valid for all tracking tags which were implemented using the Google Tag Manager.
