More information about the terms of service for Google Analytics and data privacy can be found at http://www.google.com/analytics/terms/us.html or at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en. Please note that on this website, Google Analytics code has been supplemented with “gat._anonymizeIp();” to ensure an anonymized collection of IP addresses (IP masking).
We also utilize Google Analytics for statistical analysis of the data from AdWords and the DoubleClick cookie. If this is not desired, you can disable this usage with an opt-out here (http://www.google.com/settings/ads/onweb/?hl=en).
We also use Google’s remarketing function. This allows us to play out personalized ads based on the interests you have shown on our website on suitable advertising spaces on other websites. For more information, see the Google Privacy Statement. You can prevent interest-based advertising by installing this browser plugin.
Some of our websites contain embedded YouTube videos. The operator of the corresponding plugins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, United States (hereinafter “YouTube”). When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection is established to the servers of YouTube. In the process, certain information about which pages you visit is transmitted to YouTube. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can attribute your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
The legal basis for the integration of YouTube into our websites and the associated transfer of data to Google is your consent (Article 6(1)(a) GDPR).
When a YouTube video is viewed, a connection to Google is established automatically.
If you have deactivated cookies for the Google advertising program, you won’t receive cookies of this kind when viewing YouTube videos either. However, YouTube uses other cookies to store non-personal usage information. If you’d like to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies in your browser.
Google processes your data in the United States and complies with the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework).
Any personal data collected is provided by you voluntarily, based solely on your consent. If you block access to your browser, some features or functionality of websites may be restricted.
We take every precaution to protect your personal data against loss, destruction, falsification, manipulation and unauthorized access. We comply with the European and the German laws and regulations concerning data privacy.
All of our (public) website traffic is encrypted with HTTPS/SSL. The certificate that confirms the identity of the web server for this purpose is issued by an independent third party.
The certificate can be called up by clicking on the padlock icon in the address bar of most browsers.
We urge all parents and guardians to teach their children to use safe and responsible practices when on the Internet. Minors should not enter or transmit personal data without the consent of their parents or guardians. We verify that we do not knowingly collect personal data from minors, nor do we use such data in any way or disclose it to third parties without authorization.
