Cookies store information which is provided in connection with the specific terminal device used. This does not mean, however, that this gives us direct knowledge of your identity.
On the one hand cookies help us to make your use of our website more convenient. For example, we employ so-called session cookies in order to recognize that you have already visited different pages of our website. These are automatically erased after you have left our website.
In addition, also for reasons of improving user-friendliness, we employ temporary cookies which are stored on your terminal device for a specific period of time. When you return to our website to avail yourself of our services, they automatically recognize that you have visited us previously, the information you entered and the settings you made so these need not be re-entered.
The data processed by cookies are required for the purposes specified above to protect our legitimate interest and the interests of third parties according to Art. 6(1) lit. f GDPR.
Most browsers accept cookies automatically, but you can configure your browser so that cookies are not stored on your computer or that you are always notified when a new cookie is set. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may result in your being unable to use all functions of our website.
5. Analytics Tools
a) Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereafter “Google”), to design and continuously optimize our website as needed. In this connection pseudonymized user profiles and cookies (see section 4) are used. The information about your use of the website that is generated by the cookie, such as:
- browser type and version,
- operating system used,
- referrer URL (the website visited previously),
- host name of the computer accessing the website (IP address),
- time of day of the server request,
is transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to analyze your use of the website, to generate reports about the website activities, and to provide other services in connection with the use of the website and the Internet for the purpose of market research and the needs-based design of these Internet pages. Moreover, Google may transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law, or where third parties process this data on Google’s behalf. Google will never associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. The IP addresses will be anonymized so that they cannot be assigned to specific persons (IP masking).
You may prevent the installation of the cookies by making the appropriate settings in your browser software; however, we wish to point out that in this case you may not be able to make full use of all the features of this website.
You can moreover prevent the collection of the data which were generated by the cookie and which concern your use of the website (incl. your IP address) as well as their processing by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile terminals, you can prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. In this case an opt-out cookie is set which prevents the future collection of your data when you visit this website. This opt-out cookie only works in this browser and only for our website, and is set on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie must be reset.
Further information on data privacy in connection with Google Analytics is available, for example, from the Google Analytics Help Center (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de).

8. Data Protection Provisions about the Application and Use of YouTube
On this website, the controller has integrated components of YouTube. YouTube is an Internet video portal which allows video publishers to upload video clips free of charge and other users to watch, evaluate and comment on them, also free of charge. YouTube allows the publication of all kinds of videos. Therefore complete film and television broadcasts as well as music videos, trailers or videos produced by the users themselves can be called up via the Internet portal.
The operating company of YouTube is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. YouTube, LLC is a subsidiary of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
Every time one of the individual pages of this Internet site, which is operated by the controller and on which a YouTube component (YouTube video) was integrated, is called up, the Internet browser on the information technology system of the user is automatically prompted to download a display of the respective YouTube component. Further information about YouTube may be obtained under www.youtube.com/yt/about/de/. During the course of this technical procedure, YouTube and Google gain knowledge of what specific sub-page of our website was visited by the user.
If the user is logged in on YouTube, YouTube recognizes with each call-up to a sub-page that contains a YouTube video which specific sub-page of our Internet site was visited by the user. This information is collected by YouTube and Google and assigned to the respective user’s YouTube account.
YouTube and Google will receive information through the YouTube component that the user has visited our website, if the user at the time of the call to our website is also logged in on YouTube; this occurs regardless of whether or not the person clicks on a YouTube video. If the user does not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, the delivery may be prevented if the user logs off from their own YouTube account before calling up our website.
9. Data Security
We use the popular SSL (Secure Socket Layer) methods for site visits, in conjunction with the highest level of encryption supported by your browser. Typically, this is 256-bit encryption. If your browser does not support 256-bit encryption, we will use 128-bit v3 technology instead. Whether a single page of our website is encrypted is shown by a key or lock icon in the lower status bar of your browser.
We also take appropriate technical and organizational security measures to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or total loss, destruction or unauthorized access by third parties. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
