The internet sites sometimes use so-called cookies. Cookies will not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies make our offerings more user-friendly, more effective and more secure. Cookies are small text files which are deposited on your computer and saved by your browser.

Most of the cookies we use are so-called “session cookies”. They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies stay on your end-device until you delete them. These cookies enable us to recognize your browser when you next visit. You can set your browser so that you are informed of the addition of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude accepting cookies for certain cases or in general as well as activate automatic deletion of cookies when you close your browser.

Google Analytics

This website uses the functions of the Google Analytics web analysis service. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.

Google Analytics utilizes so-called "Cookies". These are text files which are saved on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information created by cookies about your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

Google AdWords Conversion

We also use Google Analytics to analyze data from Google AdWords services for statistical purposes. Thus, in order to improve our offers, we can analyze what happens after a user clicks on our ad, e.g. whether the user bought our product or called from a cell phone from the ad. Furthermore, you will receive interest-based advertising by means of these services. If you do not wish to receive this, you can deactivate this via Google's ad preferences manager:


Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager to manage website tags. A tag is a JavaScript snippet used to send information from a website to third parties, particularly as part of web tracking. The Google Tag Manager tool itself does not collect any personal data. The tool takes care of triggering other tags, which in turn may collect data (e.g., the Google Analytics tag). Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If a deactivation has been made at the domain or cookie level, it will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented with Google Tag Manager. This makes it easier to effectively implement your objections to tracking methods.


Server Log Files
