The respective data processing purposes and data categories may be discerned from the corresponding tracking tools.

i) Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”) to ensure appropriate design and the continual optimisation of our website. Pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see Section 4) are used in this context. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

The information is used to evaluate use of the website, to compile reports on website activities and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet for the purposes of market research and user-friendly design of our website.

This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of another party. Under no circumstances will your IP address be associated with other data held by Google. IP addresses are anonymised so that it is not possible to make any such association (IP masking).

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser, however please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website.

You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie that relates to your use of the website (including your IP address) and prevent Google from processing such data by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: (

ii) Google Adwords Conversion Tracking

We also use Google Conversion Tracking to statistically record use of our website and to analyse this information in order to optimise our website for your use. Google Adwords will set a cookie (see Section 4) on your computer if you have accessed our website via a Google ad. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the Adwords customer’s website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognise that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page.

Each Google Adwords customer is provided with a different cookie. Accordingly, cookies cannot be tracked across Adwords customer websites. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted in to conversion tracking. Adwords customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page by means of a conversion tracking tag. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users.

Should you not wish to participate in the tracking process, you can also reject the placement of a cookie in this instance by using the browser setting which generally disables the automatic placement of cookies.

As a result, the user’s IP address will be shortened by Google within the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area prior to transmission to the United States. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the United States and shortened there. The information is used on behalf of the operator of this website in order to evaluate use of the website and to enable more user-friendly website design. This data will not be shared with third parties. Under no circumstances will the IP address be associated with other data relating to the respective user.
