Cookie Privacy Policy

This website uses cookies. Cookies are text files containing data from visited websites or domains that are stored on a user’s computer by a browser. A cookie is primarily used to store information about a user during or after their visit to an online service. The stored information can include, for example, the language settings on a website, the login status, a shopping cart, or the location where a video was watched. We also include other technologies that serve the same functions as cookies under the term “cookies,” such as when user information is stored using pseudonymous online identifiers, also known as “user IDs.”

The following types and functions of cookies are distinguished: Temporary cookies (also called session or session cookies): Temporary cookies are deleted at the latest when a user leaves an online service and closes their browser.

Permanent cookies: Permanent cookies are also stored after the browser is closed. For example, the login status can be saved or preferred content can be displayed directly when the user visits a website again.

This process is also referred to as “tracking,” i.e., tracking the potential interests of users. If we use cookies or “tracking” technologies, we will inform you separately in our privacy policy or as part of obtaining consent. Notes on legal bases: The legal basis for processing your personal data using cookies depends on whether we ask for your consent.

Google Ads

This website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website through a Google-displayed ad, Google Ads will set a cookie on your computer. The cookie for conversion tracking is set when a user clicks on an ad displayed by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and do not 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 has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be tracked via the websites of Ads customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers receive information about the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive information that allows users to be personally identified.

If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can reject the setting of the required cookie – for example, through the browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or sets your browser to block cookies from the domain “”. Please note that you must not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish to record measurement data. If you have deleted all your cookies in the browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.

We would like to point out that on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code “_anonymizeIp();” to ensure anonymized collection of IP addresses. This means that IP addresses are processed in abbreviated form, which means that they cannot be linked to a specific person.

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.

Note on data transfer to the USA

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.
