This website uses functions included in the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies. Cookies are text files placed on your computer to enable analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will usually be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is enabled on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. The information is used by Google on behalf of the website operator to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services to the website operator related to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be associated with other data from Google. You can prevent the storage of cookies by changing the corresponding settings in your browser software. However, please be aware that if you do so, you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie which is related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in available at the following link:

Google Maps

This site uses an API for the map service Google Maps. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Storage of your IP address is necessary in order to use Google Maps. This information is usually transferred to a Google server in the United States and stored there. The provider of this website is unable to influence this data transfer. Google Maps is used in the interests of ensuring an attractive online presence and to help you locate the places named on our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) point f) GDPR. For more information on the handling of user data, please refer to the Google privacy policy:

Demographic features in Google Analytics

This website uses the "Demographics and Interests Reports" feature in Google Analytics. It is used to compile reports that contain information on the age, gender and interests of page visitors. This information is obtained from Google’s interest-based advertising and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be associated with particular persons. You can disable this function at any time in the ad settings of your Google Account or block the collection of your data by Google Analytics as described under "Objecting to data collection".

Google Analytics Remarketing

Our websites use the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in connection with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. This function enables the connection of advertising audiences prepared using Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. Interest-based, personalised advertising messages that were shown to you on one device (e.g. mobile phone) based on your Internet usage and behaviour can therefore be displayed on your other devices (e.g. tablet or PC) as well. For this purpose, Google will connect your web and app activity with your Google account once you have provided consent. It is then possible to show the same personalised advertising messages on every device on which you are signed into your Google account. To support this function, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device advertising. You may permanently object to cross-device remarketing/targeting by disabling personalised advertisements in your Google account; use the following link to do so

www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/. The association of collected data in your Google account takes place exclusively on the basis of the consent you provide to Google and which you may also withdraw (Art. 6 (1) point a) GDPR). The collection of data in regard to processing operations that are not associated in your Google account (e.g. because you do not have a Google account or have objected to the association of data) takes place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) point f) GDRP. The legal basis is the legitimate interest of the website operator in the anonymised analysis of website visitors for advertising purposes.

Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking

This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google"). We also use the conversion tracking tool in Google AdWords. A conversion tracking cookie is placed on your device when you click on an advert from Google. Cookies are small text files that are placed on the user’s device by the Internet browser. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used to identify users personally. If the user visits certain areas of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognise that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google Adwords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked via Adwords customers’ websites. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are informed about the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a website with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that personally identifies users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can easily opt out by disabling the Google conversion tracking cookie under Settings in your web browser. You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics in this case. The storage of "conversion cookies" and the use of this tracking tool take place on the basis of Art. 6 (1) point f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behaviour to optimise its web presence and its advertising. For more information on Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking, refer to the Google privacy policy:

policies.google.com/privacy.

The functionality of this website may be restricted if you block cookies completely.
