We statistically evaluate anonymous information of this type in order to optimize our website and the technology behind it.

 

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive.

Analysis by WiredMinds

Our website uses tracking pixel technology from WiredMinds AG (www.wiredminds.de) to analyze visitor behavior

Data is collected, processed and stored, from which user profiles are created under a pseudonym. Where possible and sensible, these usage profiles are completely anonymized. Cookies can be used for this. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor's Internet browser and are used to recognize the Internet browser. The data collected, which may also include personal data, are transmitted to WiredMinds or collected directly by WiredMinds. WiredMinds may use information left by visits to the website to create anonymized usage profiles. The data obtained in this way will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website without the separate consent of the person concerned and it will not be combined with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. If IP addresses are recorded, they are anonymized immediately by deleting the last number block.

You can object to the collection, processing and storage of data at any time with future effect using the following link:Exclude from website tracking

 

Use of the scalable central measuring method

Our website uses the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) of INFOnline GmbH (http://www.infonline.de) for the determination of statistical values ​​for the use of our offers.

Anonymous measurements are collected. SZM range measurement uses either a cookie with the identifier "ioam.de", "ivwbox.de", a LocalStorage object or a signature that is created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser to recognize computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in anonymous form.

The range measurement was developed taking data protection into account. The aim of the range measurement is to statistically determine the intensity of use and the number of users of a website. At no time individual users are identified. Your identity is always protected. You will not receive advertising through the system.

For web offers that are members of the information community for determining the distribution of advertising media eV (IVW - http://www.ivw.eu) or on the "internet facts" study by the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung eV (AGOF - www.agof .de), the usage statistics are published monthly by the AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyze eV (ag.ma - www.agma-mmc.de), as well as by the IVW and can be found at http://www.agof.de, http://www.agma-mmc.de and http://www.ivw.eu. In addition to the publication of measurement data, the IVW regularly checks the SZM process with regard to its use in compliance with regulations and data protection.

Further information on the SZM process can be found on the INFOnline GmbH website (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the SZM process, the AGOF data protection website (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the IVW data protection website (http://www.ivw.eu).

You can object to data processing by the SZM using the following links: http://optout.ioam.de and http://optout.ivwbox.de.

 

Use of the scalable central measuring method by an application

Our application uses the "Scalable Central Measuring Method" (SZM) from INFOnline GmbH (http://www.infonline.de) for the determination of statistical values ​​for the use of our offers.

Anonymous measurements are collected. The SZM range measurement uses unique identifiers of the end device for the recognition of devices, which are only transmitted anonymously. IP addresses are only processed in anonymous form.

Further information on the SZM process can be found on the INFOnline GmbH website (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the SZM process, the AGOF data protection website (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the IVW data protection website (http://www.ivw.eu).

Use of script libraries (Google web fonts)

In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as B. Google web fonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/). Google web fonts are transferred to your browser's cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Webfonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.

Calling script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the operator of the library. It is theoretically possible - but currently unclear whether and if so for what purposes - that operators of corresponding libraries collect data.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here:https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

 

Using Adobe Typekit

We use Adobe Typekit for the visual design of our website. Typekit is a service of Adobe Systems Software Ireland Ltd. which gives us access to a font library. To integrate the fonts we use, your browser must establish a connection to an Adobe server in the USA and download the font required for our website. This gives Adobe the information that our website has been accessed from your IP address. Further information on Adobe Typekit can be found in Adobe's data protection notice, which you can access here:www.adobe.com/privacy/typekit.html

 

Use of Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps API to visually display geographic information. When using Google Maps, Google also collects, processes and uses data about the use of map functions by visitors.

Embedded YouTube videos

We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. The corresponding plugins are operated by YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. YouTube is informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.

If a YouTube video is started, the provider uses cookies that collect information about user behavior.

If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google ad program, you will not have to expect such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in the browser.

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an advertisement placed by Google, Google Adwords will set a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an advertisement placed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that can be used to personally identify users.

If you do not want to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example via a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com" are blocked.

Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you have to set the respective opt-out cookie again.

 

Use of Google remarketing

This website uses the remarketing function of Google Inc. The function serves to present website visitors within the Google advertising network with interest-related advertisements. A so-called "cookie" is saved in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when he or she visits websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these pages, visitors can be presented with advertisements that relate to content that the visitor has previously accessed on websites that use the remarketing function of Google.
According to its own information, Google does not collect any personal data in this process. If you still do not want Google's remarketing function, you can always deactivate it by making the appropriate settings underhttp://www.google.com/settings/adsmake. Alternatively, you can deactivate the use of cookies for interest-based advertising via the advertising network initiative by following the instructions athttp://www.networkadvertising.org/managing/opt_out.aspconsequences.
