This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; "Google"). Usage includes the operating mode "Universal Analytics". This makes it possible to associate data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID, thus analysing the activities of a user across devices.
You can prevent the storage of cookies using a corresponding setting on your browser software; however, please note that if you do this, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to the fullest extent possible. You may also prevent the collection of cookie-generated and website-related information (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the Browser-Add-on. Opt-out cookies prevent future collection of your data when you visit this website. To prevent Universal Analytics from tracking across devices, you must opt-out on all systems that you use.

Google Adwords Conversion-Tracking
To statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it in order to optimise our website, we also use Google Conversion Tracking. In doing so, Google Adwords will place a cookie (see paragraph 5) on your computer if you have reached our website using a Google ad.
These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer's website and the cookie has not expired, Google and the customer will be able to recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Every 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 into conversion tracking. Adwords customers learn about the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
If you do not want to participate in the tracking process, you can also refuse the necessary setting of a cookie, for example, via a browser setting that generally disables the automatic setting of cookies. You can also disable cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies using the domain www.googleadservices.com. You can find Google's data protection policy for conversion tracking through the following link: https://services.google.com/sitestats/en.html. The legal basis for the service is art. 6, par. 1, let. f of the GDPR; our interest is the optimisation of the website.

Transfer to recipients outside of the EEA
Unless otherwise stated, we do not disclose your personal data to recipients who are located outside the EEA.
In the event of a transfer, we shall ensure, through contractual or organisational measures, that the recipient either has an adequate level of data protection (e.g. due to a decision by the EU Commission on the appropriate country or the so-called EU standard contractual clauses of the European Union with the beneficiary) or your consent is present in the transfer.
For further information, in particular regarding the measures taken, please contact our data protection officer.

Insofar as we are subject to statutory storage requirements, which require a longer storage period, we store the data for this period, in particular for the fulfilment of commercial and tax withholding periods, which are between two and 10 years.
Other legal grounds for withholding may include the provision of evidence for the duration of the applicable statute of limitations. These periods are usually between two and 30 years.

If you do not specify otherwise, we usually answer your request in the same form as it was received. You will receive a response within one month. In the case of manifestly unfounded or excessive requests, we are entitled to demand a reasonable fee or refuse your request.
