3.9 What are cookies and how are they used?

3.9.1 What are cookies?

A cookie is a little file storing the internet settings. Nearly every website makes use of the cookie technology. Cookies are downloaded from your web browser when you first visit a website. The next time you access that website with the same terminal device, the cookie and any information stored therein is either sent back to the website that created it (first party cookie) or sent to another website to which it belongs (third party cookie). That way the website recognizes that it has been accessed before with that browser and varies the content displayed in some cases.

Some cookies are extremely useful as they may improve the user experience at the renewed access of a website which you visited before. The cookies remember your preferences, for instance, provided you use the same terminal device and the same browser as before, or the way you use a site, and adjust the offers displayed in a more relevant manner to your personal interests and needs.

Cookies may be divided into four categories, depending on their intended purpose and function: essential cookies, performance cookies, functional cookies and cookies for marketing purposes.

3.9.2 Types of cookies

You may also check or change which type of cookies are accepted. This can usually be done in your browser settings.

In addition, we provide you with information on such in this privacy statement.

3.9.3 Refuse cookies

You may also adjust your browser settings to only receive cookies which are absolutely necessary to perform the basic features of the website - any other cookies would no longer be accepted.

Most browsers accept cookies. If you prefer that we do not collect any data by the use of cookies, you may determine in the privacy settings of your browser that some or all cookies are accepted or all cookies are refused.

If, however, all cookies are refused, it may be that not all of the features and content of our website are available to you.

As every browser has a different structure, we recommend looking up in the help menu of your browser in which way you may change cookie settings.

Please find further general information on the subject of cookies, including the possibility of cookie deactivation, at aboutcookies.org. You will also find instructions there how to delete cookies from your computer.

4. Tools and other

*Use of YouTube videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding feature to display and playback videos of the provider "YouTube" which belongs to Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").

The enhanced data protection mode is applied there which, according to the provider, triggers a storage of user information only when a video is displayed. If playback of embedded YouTube videos is started, the provider "YouTube" uses cookies to collect information on user behavior. According to YouTube's indications, they serve, among other purposes, to collect video statistics, improve user-friendliness and prevent abusive activities. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly allocated to your account if you click on a video. If you do not wish such allocation to your profile with YouTube, you will have to log out prior to the activation of the button. Google stores your data (even with non-logged in users) as user profiles and evaluates them. Such evaluation is, in particular, performed on the basis of the legitimate interest of Google to insert personalized advertisement, market research and/or needs-based design of its website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence f DSGVO. You have a right of objection against the creation of such user profiles, and if you want to exercise that right, you should address YouTube.

Irrespective of a playback of embedded videos, a connection to the Google network "DoubleClick" is established at every access to this website, which may trigger further data processing operations beyond our control.

Google LLC based in the USA is certified for the US-European data protection convention "Privacy Shield" which ensures compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

For further information on data protection with "YouTube", please refer to the privacy statement of the provider at: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy

Our websites use social plug-ins. These are small enhancements in our internet presence which facilitate exchange of information with the relevant groups.

* Google (Universal) Analytics - Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytical service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information on your use of the website generated by the cookie (including the truncated IP address) is, as a rule, transferred to a server of Google in the US and stored there.

This website exclusively uses Google Analytics with the enhancement "_anonymizeIp()" which ensures an anonymization of the IP address by truncation and excludes a direct reference to individuals. Google first truncates your IP address through this enhancement within the member states of the European Union or in other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is transferred to a server of Google in the US in exceptional cases only and truncated there. Processing is made pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence f DSGVO in such exceptional cases on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behavior for purposes of optimization and marketing.

Google will use such information on behalf of us to evaluate the use of our website, to compile reports on website activities and to render further services to us in connection with the use of the website and the internet. The IP address transmitted from your browser in connection with Google Analytics will not be amalgamated with any other data of Google.

You may prevent the storage of cookies by appropriately setting your browser software; we, however, point out that in such case you may not be able to use all features of this website in full. You may further prevent the collection and transfer of the data generated by the cookie and referring to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available through the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

* Google AdWords Remarketing

Our website uses the features of Google AdWords Remarketing, that way we promote this website in the Google search results and on third party websites. The provider is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google sets a cookie in the browser of your terminal device for such purpose which automatically enables interest based advertising by means of a pseudonymous cookie ID on the basis of the sites you visited. Processing is based on our legitimate interest in an optimal marketing of our website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence f DSGVO.

Any processing of the data that extends beyond this purpose will only take place if you agreed vis-à-vis Google that Google may link your internet and app browser history to your Google account and information from your Google account is used to personalize advertisements you view on the web. If you are logged in with Google at the time of your visit to our website in such case, Google will use your data together with Google Analytics data to create and define target group lists for cross-device remarketing. Google will, for that purpose, temporarily link your personal data with Google Analytics data to create target groups.

* Google Maps

This website uses Google Maps (API) provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Maps is a web service to present interactive maps for visualization of geographical information. If you use this service, you will see our location to make it easier to find our office.

As soon as you visit the relevant subpages in which the map of Google Maps is embedded, information on your use of this website (such as your IP address) is transferred to a server of Google in the US and stored there. This happens irrespective of whether Google provides a user account where you are logged in or such user account does not exist. If you are logged in to Google, your data will be directly allocated to your account. If you do not wish such allocation to your profile with Google, you will have to log out prior to the activation of the button. Google stores your data (even with non-logged in users) as user profiles and evaluates them. Such evaluation is, in particular, performed on the basis of the legitimate interest of Google to insert personalized advertisement, market research and/or needs-based design of its website pursuant to Art. 6 (1) sentence f DSGVO. You have a right of objection against the creation of such user profiles, and if you want to exercise that right, you should address Google.

If you disagree with a future transfer of your data to Google in connection with the use of Google Maps, you also have the possibility to entirely deactivate the web service of Google Maps by disabling the application JavaScript in your browser. You will then not be able to use Google Maps or view any maps on this website.
