Processing of personal data
Personal data is any information that relates to an identified or identifiable person. A data subject is a person about whom personal data is processed. Processing includes any handling of personal data, regardless of the means and procedures used, in particular the storage, disclosure, acquisition, deletion, storage, modification, destruction and use of personal data.

Web analytics and statistics
In order to record and statistically evaluate the flow of visitors to our Internet presence, we use web analysis services. Such services collect, among other things, data about the website from which you have accessed our website (so-called referrers), which pages of our website you have accessed, how long you have visited our pages and which interactions you have carried out there. In addition, data on the browser you use, computer system and type of device are collected. In addition, demographic information such as age or gender can be collected as pseudonymous values via such a service. If you have consented to the collection of your location data, this may also be processed, depending on the provider.
In order to collect and store this data, the web analysis service we use usually sets a cookie on the terminal device you use, which also collects the IP address assigned to you. However, this is shortened via a so-called IP masking procedure, so that the IP address can no longer be assigned to your visit to our website. In addition, no clear data such as names or e-mail addresses are stored. Neither we nor the service we use know the identity of visitors to our website.
We would like to point out that, depending on the country of domicile of the service provider mentioned below, the data collected via the service may be transmitted and processed outside the area of the European Union. In this case, there is a risk that the level of data protection prescribed by the GDPR may not be complied with and that the enforcement of your rights may not be possible or may be difficult.
If we have asked you for your consent before using the respective service, this is the legal basis, Art. 6 (1) lit. a GDPR. In addition, we use the respective service on the basis of our legitimate interest in analyzing the flow of visitors to our website in order to be able to continuously improve the functions, offers and the user experience, the legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
We use the following web analysis services:
Matomo Analytics (without Cookies, self-hosted)
Provider: InnoCraft Ltd. 150 Willis St, 6011 Wellington, Neuseeland
When using Matomo, the data collected via the analysis tool is not transmitted to the service provider, but rather remains on our server. In addition, no cookies are used in the variant we use. Rather, returning users are recognized with the help of a so-called “digital fingerprint”. This is stored anonymously and changed every 24 hours. Conclusions about the identity of individual users are not possible.
Google Analytics (GA4)
Provider: Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
Domicil inside EU: Google Dublin, Google Ireland Ltd., Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the data controller on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then the Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as “Google”.
The statistics obtained enable us to improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. This website also uses Google Analytics for a cross-device analysis of visitor flows, which is carried out via a user ID. If you have a Google user account, you can deactivate the cross-device analysis of your usage in the settings there under “My data”, “Personal data”.
No IP addresses are logged or stored during data collection in Google Analytics 4.
In Analytics, all IP addresses collected from users in the EU are deleted before being recorded across EU domains and servers.
No precise location data is provided in Analytics. Instead, the following metadata is derived from IP addresses: “city” (and the derived latitude and longitude of the city), “continent”, “country”, “region”, “subcontinent” (and the ID-based equivalents). For accesses originating from the EU, IP address data is only used to derive location data and is immediately deleted afterwards. They are not logged, are not accessible, and are not used for any other use cases.
When collecting measurement data in Analytics, all IP searches take place on EU-based servers before the traffic is forwarded to Analytics servers for processing.
In Google Analytics 4, all data from devices located in the EU (based on geographic location according to IP address) is collected via domains and servers in the EU before traffic is forwarded to Analytics servers for processing.
This will save a so-called opt-out cookie on your data carrier, which prevents the processing of personal data by Google Analytics. Please note that if you delete all cookies on your terminal device, these opt-out cookies will also be deleted, i.e. you will have to set the opt-out cookies again if you wish to continue to prevent this form of data collection. The opt-out cookies are set per browser and computer/end device and must therefore be activated separately for each browser, computer or other end device.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR and Art. 6 para. 1 p. 1 lit. f GDPR.
Google Tag Manager is a solution with which we can manage so-called website tags via an interface and thus, for example, integrate Google Analytics and other Google marketing services into our online offering.

We use the following marketing services:
This website may use Google conversion tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. 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 Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies can therefore not be tracked across Ads customers’ websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Clients 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 any information that can be used to personally identify 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 so that cookies from the domain “googleleadservices.com” are blocked.
Please note that you may 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.
This website may use the remarketing function of Google Inc. The function is used to present interest-based advertisements to website visitors within the Google advertising network. A so-called “cookie” is stored in the browser of the website visitor, which makes it possible to recognize the visitor when they visit websites that belong to the Google advertising network. On these sites, the visitor can be presented with advertisements that relate to content that the visitor has previously accessed on websites that use Google’s remarketing function.

Data transfer to third-party countries
Among other things, tools from companies based in the USA are integrated on our website. If these tools are active, your personal data may be transferred to the US servers of the respective companies. We would like to point out that the USA is not a safe third country in the sense of EU data protection law. US companies are obliged to hand over personal data to security authorities without you as a data subject being able to take legal action against this. It can therefore not be ruled out that US authorities (e.g. intelligence services) process, evaluate and permanently store your data located on US servers for monitoring purposes. We have no influence on these processing activities.
We also take state-of-the-art technical and organizational security measures to comply with the provisions of data protection laws and to protect your data against accidental or intentional manipulation, partial or complete loss, destruction or against unauthorized third-party access.
