Deployment and use of cookies

To make our Internet site user-friendly and optimally match it to your needs, we use cookies in certain areas. A cookie is a small file that is stored locally on your computer as soon as you visit a website. If you again visit the website with the same terminal device, the cookie indicates, for example, that this is a repeat visit. Cookies also allow us to analyse the usage of our website. The cookie does not contain any personal information and is not suitable to identify you on third-party websites, including websites of analytics providers.

We use the following types of cookies:

  • Fundamental/necessary cookies

These cookies are of fundamental importance for the functioning of our website. This includes for example the issuing of anonymous session IDs for bundling multiple requests to a Web server, or ensuring the error-free functioning of logons and orders.

  • Performance/statistics cookies

 These cookies collect information on how you use our website (e.g. Internet browser used, number of visits, pages requested or visiting time on the website). These cookies do not store any information that allows personal identification of the visitor. The information collected by using these cookies is aggregated and thus anonymous.

You can declare permission or refusal of cookies – even for Web tracking – by using the settings of your browser. You can configure your browser such that it always refuses acceptance of cookies or informs you in advance if a cookie is to be stored. In this case, however, the functionality of the website can be impaired (for instance when ordering).

You can find further information in the user manual or generally under "Settings" in your Internet browser.

Anonymised website tracking

Use of Google Universal Analytics

This website uses Google Universal Analytics, a Web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Universal Analytics uses "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your usage of the website. The information generated by the cookie regarding your usage of this website (including your IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

IP anonymisation has been implemented on this website, so that the IP address of the users of Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area is first shortened. The full IP address is only transmitted to a Google server in United States in exceptional cases and is shortened there. On the order of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of the website in order to compile reports on website activities and render additional services to us related to the website usage and Internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Universal Analytics is not combined by Google with other data. You can prevent storage of the cookies by an appropriate setting of your browser software; we wish to inform you, however, that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website to their fullest extent. In addition, you can prevent acquisition and processing by Google of the data generated by the cookie and related to your usage (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

You can block acquisition of data by Google Universal Analytics by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents future acquisition of your data when visiting this website: Deactivate Google Analytics

You can find further information regarding conditions of usage and data protection at www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or at www.google.de/privacy.html.

 We point out that this website uses Google Universal Analytics with the code extension "anonymizeIp" in order to guarantee anonymised collection of IP addresses (known as IP masking) and rule out direct relation to a specific person.

Google Maps

This website uses the Google Maps service. Google Maps is a cartographic service that displays geographical information visually. Google Maps is a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Maps processes personal data under its own terms, which is why we have no knowledge of possible processing of personal data by Google maps and consequently assume no responsibility for it. Possible purposes, legal bases and scope of processing of personal data by Google Maps, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy can be found in the conditions of usage of Google Maps at www.google.com/intl/de_de/help/terms_maps.html and in the data protection notification for Google Maps at www.google.com/policies/privacy/.
