Web analysis, targeting and cookies
Use of Google Analytics
Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on web activities and to perform other services associated with website and Internet use for the site operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be associated with other Google data.
You can prevent cookies from installing using the appropriate settings in your browser; we must warn you, however, that in this case, you may not be able to use all of the functions on this website to their full extent. You can also prevent Google from recording the data generated by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and processing this data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available on the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
We also use Google Analytics to evaluate data from AdWords and the double-click cookie for statistical purposes. If you wish to prevent this, you can deactivate it in the settings manager (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=de).
Also, when visiting some of our pages, temporary cookies are saved on the hard drive of your PC or on your mobile device by targeting services; these are deleted automatically after a set period. These cookies contain a machine-generated alphanumeric code that cannot be traced back to you or the IP address of your computer. You can prevent the use of target cookies by setting your browser so no cookies are saved.
The above cookies are generally used to collect anonymised data which allows us to analyse the use of our website.
A cookie must be installed on your device to allow you to share content on our website over social media such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. Once the function has been used, responsibility for further processing of the data lies with the company in question; please consult their policy for more information.
As described above, cookies let you use the functionality of our website to the full. Where they are used for web analysis purposes etc. you will be explicitly asked to accept them before they are installed (opt-in).
Our website can also be viewed without cookies. However, if you block or deactivate cookies, the functionality of our website may be restricted. If you do not want to have any cookies, you can set your browser to tell you when they are set and only allow them on a case-by-case basis.

You can normally find instructions for managing cookies on your browser under the browser help function or in the user guide to your smartphone.
Integration of third-party services and content and use of plug-ins
Sometimes, our website integrates content from third parties such as Twitter, Facebook, YouTube videos, Google Maps and graphics from other websites (known as external embedded components or plug-ins/widgets). This always means that the provider of such content has to know the user’s IP address, as without the IP address, no content can be sent to the user’s browser. By clicking on the relevant icon, you consent to communication with the platform in question and the transmission of information to the respective service provider. We have no influence over the scope of the data collected by the social network with the aid of the button. As far as we are aware, integrating the plug-in only gives the social network the user’s IP address and the information that a user has accessed the relevant page of the offering (the URL of the website in question). Once the function has been used, responsibility for the further processing of the data lies with the company in question. Please consult the data protection policy of the service provider selected for more information on use of your data.
