Cookies are small text files that are stored in your browser’s cache and enable us to recognise your browser for a certain length of time. While it is possible to use our website without cookies, this may restrict the functionality and user-friendliness of the content we offer.

Required cookies: These cookies are necessary and are always used to make it easy for you to navigate our website and make use of its special functions (when accessing password-protected areas, for example).

We also use required cookies to identify and log each unique attempt to access our website, which helps safeguard our ability to provide our services.

Tracking cookies: The use of these cookies is optional and requires your prior consent. Providing your consent essentially enables us to present external content relevant to you (such as videos, maps, and job advertisements) in more attractive ways on our website, make ongoing improvements to the site using anonymised usage data and analyses, and display relevant advertisements and other content on our partners’ websites based on pseudonymised information.

6 Google Analytics

This Website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”).

Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files placed on your computer, to help analyse how visitors use websites. The infor- mation generated by the cookie about your use of our website (including your IP address) is typically transmitted to and stored on Google servers in the United States. If IP anonymization is activated, Google first truncates (and thereby anonymises) your
IP address if you are located in a member-state of the European Union or another state that is party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be sent to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. Google uses this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity, and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage
to the website operator. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or the data is to be processed by third parties on Google‘s behalf. Google has reported that it does not associate your IP address with any other data it holds. You may prevent the storage of cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser; however, please note that this may prevent you from using the full functionality of this website. Further, you can prevent Google’s collection of data created by cookies and data related to your use of our website (including your IP address) and Google’s processing of this data by down- loading and installing the browser plug-in available at https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

For more information on the terms and conditions of use and on data protection, visit https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/ and https://www.google.com/analytics/privacyoverview.html. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics is supplemen- ted by the code “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure that IP addresses are collected in anonymised form (IP masking).

We also use Google Analytics for analysing data from AdWords and the DoubleClick cookie for statistical purposes. If you wish, you
can deactivate this using the Ad Preferences Manager at https://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb.

7 Google Ads (formerly AdWords)

We use Google’s advertising tool Google Ads (formerly AdWords) to promote our Website. In this context, we use Google’s conversion tracking analysis service on our Website. If you access our Website by clicking on a Google advertisement, a cookie is stored on your computer. These cookies, known as conversion cookies, expire after 30 days and do not serve to identify you. If you access certain pages on our Website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that you, the user, have clicked on an advertisement that we placed with Google and were forwarded to our Website.

The information obtained using conversion cookies allow us to generate visitor statistics for our Website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who have clicked on our advertisements and which pages on our Website were then accessed by which user. Neither we nor other Google Ads advertisers receive information with which users can be personally identified.

You can prevent conversion cookies from being set by making the appropriate settings in your browser, for example by deactivating the automatic saving of all cookies, or just cookies from the domain googleadservices.com.

Google’s data protection notice for this is located at https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html.

8 Google Tag Manager

Our Website makes use of Google Tag Manager, which is a solution from Google Inc. that enables companies to manage website tags through an interface. Google Tag Manager is a cookie-free domain that does not collect any personal data. We expressly point out here that Google Tag Manager does, however, trigger other tags that may collect information. Google Tag Manager does not access this information. If a given user has opted for deactivation at the domain or cookie level, this will apply to all tracking tags implemented using Google Tag Manager.

9 Google Maps

Our website uses Google Maps to display geographical information in a visually attractive manner. Incorporating the Google map material we use and displaying it in your web browser requires your prior consent to the use of tracking cookies. If you access sections of our website that include Google Maps without having granted this consent, you will instead see a notice that describes how to activate the cookies necessary to display the content. We will also provide you with a link to an external site where you can view the map material in question in Google Maps.

Accessing the contact page in question will only open a connection between your web browser and a Google server (which may be located in the United States) if you have consented to the use of tracking cookies on our website. As a result, Google receives the information that our website was accessed by your device’s IP address.
