Google Analytics


We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. “(“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help us analyze your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use may be transferred and stored by Google on servers in the USA. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on the website, Google will shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area beforehand. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, of compiling reports on website activities and of providing us with further services associated with the use of the website and the internet usage.

We collect this data to protect our legitimate interests to analyse the usage of our website, to improve it and to make it more interesting for you. The legal basis for processing is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f GDPR.


Google Adwords


We use the offer of Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. In relation to the data of the advertising campaigns we can determine how successful the individual advertising measures are. We want to show you advertisements you are interested in, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs. 


These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called “Ad Servers”. For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.


These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer’s website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.


Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data which are raised by the use of this tool by Google. We therefore inform you according to our knowledge: By the integration of AdWords conversion Google receives the information that you called the appropriate part of our website or clicked an advertising of us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.


You can prevent participation in this tracking process in various ways: a) by setting your browser software accordingly. By suppressing third-party cookies, you will not receive ads from third-party providers; b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the “” domain”,, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the “About Ads” self-regulation campaign via the link, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanently deactivating Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome in your browsers under the link Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer in full.
