A "cookie" is a sequence of text characters transmitted via our web server as a cookie file of your browser to the hard disk of your computer. Our website is thus enabled to recognize you when a (re-) connection is made between our web server and your browser. The main purpose of a cookie is the recognition of visitors to the site, as well as the analytical analysis of (non-) personal information in order to gain information about the time, geographic location and use of our website.

6. Used tools and applications
a. We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland.
This service uses so-called "cookies" (s.o.). The information generated by cookies about your use of this website are usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.
These servers are typically located in the United States, but they are based on agreements to use the European Economic Area and shorten your IP address before it is sent to the United States. Only in exceptional cases the IP address will be shortened after the transmission to the USA.
On our account, Google uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The transmitted IP address from your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The storage of the cookies required by Google Analytics can be prevented by an appropriate setting of your browser software. In this case it is possible that you will not be able to use all the functions of this website in full extent. The collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) as well as their transmission and processing by Google can be prevented by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
c. Online presence in social media
We use the online presence in social networks and platforms to communicate with our customers active there,
interested parties and users and to inform them about our services.
We point out that data of the users can be processed outside the area of the European Union. This may result in risks for the users because, for example, the enforcement of user rights could be more difficult. With regard to US providers, which are certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.
Furthermore, the data of the users are usually processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, for example, usage profiles can be created from the user behaviour and the resultant interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used to place advertisements inside and outside the platforms, for example, which correspond with the interests of the users.
For these purposes, cookies are stored on the computers of the users. Cookies record the user behaviour and the interests of the users. Moreover, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).
The processing of the personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with article 6 paragraph 1 letter f of the GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers of the platforms for consent to the above-described data processing, the legal basis of the processing is article 6 paragraph 1 letter a., article 7 of the GDPR.
For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of contradiction (opt-out), we refer to the following linked information of the provider.
In the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information.
