Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and which enable your usage of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie relating to your use of our website is normally transferred to a Google server in the USA, where it is saved. Due to IP anonymisation activated on our website, your IP address will first be abbreviated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional circumstances will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there.

Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to evaluate your use of the website. This evaluation is necessary for Google so that it can compile reports about your activities on the website, and so that it can provide other services to the website operator in connection with the use of the website and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics is not combined with other information by Google. You can prevent cookies from being stored by changing the corresponding setting within your browser software. However, please note that in this situation you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website.

Furthermore, you can prevent Google from collecting and processing the data generated by the cookie and relating to your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available from the link below: Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.

Alternatively, you can click this Link, which sets a cookie that prevents data transmission to Google.

Data minimisation

We store personal data in accordance with the principles of data avoidance and data minimisation only for as long as is necessary or prescribed by law (statutory retention period). If the purpose of the data collected no longer exists, or if the retention period ends, we block or delete the data.

Your rights to information, correction, locking, deletion and to raise objections

You have the right, free of charge, to request information about the personal data stored by us about you and/or to demand correction, locking or deletion. Exceptions: the data concerns prescribed data storage to process transactions or the data is subject to the statutory retention period.

For this purpose, please contact our data protection officer (contact details: at the end of the data protection statement).

In order to consider a data lock at all times, it is necessary to keep the data in a locked file for control purposes. If there is no statutory archiving obligation, you can also request the deletion of the data. Otherwise, we will lock the data if you request this.

Changes to our data protection statement

In order to ensure that our data protection statement always complies with the current statutory provisions, we reserve the right to make changes at any time. This also applies to the situation where the data protection statement needs to be amended due to new or revised services. The new data protection statement applies when you next visit our website.
