Analysis by WiredMinds

Our website uses the pixel-counting technology of WiredMinds AG (www.wiredminds.de) to analyse visitor behaviour.

In the process, data is collected, processed and stored, from which usage profiles are created under a pseudonym. Where possible and reasonable, these usage profiles are completely anonymized. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor's Internet browser and are used to recognise the Internet browser. The data collected, which may also include personal data, is transmitted to WiredMinds or collected directly by WiredMinds. WiredMinds may use information left behind by visits to the web pages to create anonymous user profiles. The data obtained in this way will not be used to personally identify the visitor to this website without the separately granted consent of the person concerned, and it will not be merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym. Insofar as IP addresses are collected, they are immediately anonymised by deleting the last number block.

You can object to the collection, processing and storage of data at any time with effect for the future by clicking on the following link: Exclude from website tracking

social plugins

Social plugins from the providers listed below are used on our websites. You can recognize the plugins by the fact that they are marked with the corresponding logo.

Information, which may also include personal data, may be sent to the service provider via these plugins and may be used by the service provider. We prevent the unconscious and unintentional collection and transmission of data to the service provider through a 2-click solution. To activate a desired social plugin, it must first be activated by clicking on the corresponding button. Only this activation of the plugin also triggers the collection of information and its transmission to the service provider. We ourselves do not collect any personal data by means of the social plugins or about their use.

We have no influence on what data an activated plugin collects and how it is used by the provider. Currently, it must be assumed that a direct connection to the services of the provider is established and at least the IP address and device-related information is collected and used. There is also the possibility that the service providers try to save cookies on the computer used. Please refer to the data protection information of the respective service provider to find out which specific data is collected and how it is used. Note: If you are logged into Facebook at the same time, Facebook can identify you as a visitor to a particular page.

Cookies

Like many other websites, we also use so-called "cookies". Cookies are small text files that are transferred from a website server to your hard drive. Through this we automatically receive certain data such as IP address, browser used, operating system about your computer and your connection to the Internet.

Cookies cannot be used to run programs or deliver viruses to a computer. The information contained in cookies allows us to facilitate your navigation and enable the correct display of our web pages.

Under no circumstances will the data we collect be passed on to third parties or linked to personal data without your consent.

Of course, you can also view our website without cookies. Internet browsers are regularly set to accept cookies. You can deactivate the use of cookies at any time via your browser settings.

Use of the scalable central measuring method

Our website uses the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) of INFOnline GmbH (http://www.infonline.de) to determine statistical parameters on the use of our offerings.

Anonymous measurement values are collected in the process. The SZM range measurement alternatively uses either a cookie with the identifier "ioam.de", "ivwbox.de", a LocalStorage object or a signature, which is created from various automatically transmitted information of your browser, for the recognition of computer systems. IP addresses are only processed in anonymised form.

Reach measurement was developed with due regard for data protection. The aim of reach measurement is to statistically determine the intensity of use and the number of users of a website. At no time are individual users identified. Their identity always remains protected. You will not receive any advertising via the system.

For web offers that are members of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW - Association for the Determination of the Distribution of Advertising Media). (IVW - http://www.ivw.eu) or participate in the "internet facts" study of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF - http://www.ivw.eu). (AGOF - www.agof.de), the usage statistics are published monthly by AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (ag.ma - www.agma-mmc.de), as well as IVW, and can be viewed at http://www.agof.de, http://www.agma-mmc.de and http://www.ivw.eu. In addition to publishing measurement data, IVW regularly reviews the SZM procedure to ensure that it is used in compliance with the rules and data protection regulations.

Further information on the SZM procedure can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the SZM procedure, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).

You can object to the data processing by the SZM under the following links: http://optout.ioam.de and http://optout.ivwbox.de.

Use of the scalable central measuring method by an application

Our application uses the "Scalable Central Measurement Method" (SZM) of INFOnline GmbH (http://www.infonline.de) to determine statistical parameters for the use of our offerings.

Anonymous measured values are collected. The SZM range measurement uses unique identifiers of the end device for the recognition of devices, which are transmitted exclusively anonymously. IP addresses are only processed in anonymous form.

Further information on the SZM procedure can be found on the website of INFOnline GmbH (https://www.infonline.de), which operates the SZM procedure, the data protection website of AGOF (http://www.agof.de/datenschutz) and the data protection website of IVW (http://www.ivw.eu).

Google AdWords

Our website uses the Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set on your computer by Google Adwords. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad placed by Google. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be tracked across AdWords customers' websites. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. The customers learn the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.

If you do not wish to participate in the tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this - for example, by means of a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or by setting your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain "googleleadservices.com" are blocked.

Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not want any measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

Your rights to information, correction, blocking, deletion and objection

You have the right to obtain information about your personal data stored by us at any time. Likewise, you have the right to correction, blocking or, apart from the mandatory data storage for business processing, deletion of your personal data.

To ensure that a blocking of data can be taken into account at any time, this data must be kept in a blocking file for control purposes. You can also request the deletion of data, insofar as no legal archiving obligation exists. Insofar as such an obligation exists, we will block your data upon request.

You can make changes or withdraw consent by notifying us with effect for the future.
