Cookies are used to make your visit to this website secure, effective, and attractive. Cookies are small text files with a sequence of numbers, which are stored locally on your device or in your internet browser cache. Cookies will not become part of your PC system. Most browsers are pre-set to accept cookies automatically. At the end of a browser session, most cookies are deleted (so-called session cookies). On the other hand, so-called persistent cookies remain on your device and make it possible to recognise you on your next visit.
XII. Google Analytics
To optimise our website to best meet your interests, we use “Google Analytics”, a web analysis service from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). Cookies are used as part of Google Analytics (see XI. Cookies). The information on your use of this website generated by cookies is transmitted to and stored on a Google server in the USA. Google will use this information to compile reports on website activity for website operators, and to provide other website-related services. Google will also forward this information to third parties, if so required by law or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. Google will not connect your IP address with other data held by Google.
We always use Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()” so that IP addresses are only processed in a shortened form in order to exclude direct personal references. In that regard, it is ensured that in the context of a page view, no detailed IP address information is being transmitted by you.
“You can prevent the acquisition of data in the context of Google Analytics by installing the browser add-on provided by Google. The add-on is available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .
When installing the add-on, an opt-out cookie is placed on your computer. The opt-out cookie only works within the respective browser chosen. If you change your PC, your browser, or delete all cookies, you will need to reactivate the above link to opt out.”
XIII. Further Google Analytics Functions for Display Advertising
We use the following Google Analytics functions for display advertising
- Google Display Network Impression Reporting
- Integration of DoubleClick Campaign Manager
- Google Analytics Demographics and Interests reports
These reporting capabilities allow us to use and evaluate the data obtained in the framework of interest-based advertising from Google, as well as third-party visitor information on Google Analytics. The data includes information such as age, gender and interests.
You can deactivate Google Analytics for display advertising at any time and adjust the ads in the Google Display Network – to do so, go to the Ads Settings on the page https://www.google.de/settings/ads.
XIV. Google AdWords
This website uses “Google AdWords” from Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”) and conversion tracking within the context of analytics services. When you select an ad delivered by Google, a cookie is stored for conversion tracking (see XI. Cookies). The cookies used in the context of conversion tracking expire after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are not used for personal identification. If our website is visited before their expiration, these cookies may be used to understand how the forwarding to our website happened (especially via ad clicks). All Google AdWords customers receive a different cookie.
Using the information that the conversion cookie obtains, conversion statistics will be created for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. This gives the AdWords customers information particularly on the total number of users who have viewed their ads and who have been forwarded to a site equipped with a conversion tracking tag. They will not, however, receive any information that can identify a user personally.
If you do not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can altogether disable the automatic setting of cookies in your browser settings. You can also block only specific cookies for conversion tracking by modifying your browser settings so that cookies are not allowed from the domain “googleadservices.com.”

This website uses the service “Google Maps” from Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”) to display maps or maps excerpts. The collection of your IP address is required for the display of the maps. We have no influence on the possible storage of IP addresses by Google Maps.
