Server Log Files
The website provider automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us.
• Date and time of the request
• Name of the requested file
• Page from which the file was requested
• Access status (file transfer, file not found, etc.)
• Web browser and operating system used
• Full IP address of the requesting computer
• Amount of data transferred
Merging of this data with other data sources will not be done. Processing is carried out in accordance to article 6(1) sentence 1(f) of the GDPR. based on our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.
For reasons of security, in particular in warding off attacks on our web server, we store this data for a short time only. Conclusions on or about individuals is not possible for us based on this data. After seven days latest, the data is anonymised by shortening the IP address at domain level so that it is no longer possible to relate to an individual user. The data is also processed, in anonymous form, for statistical purposes; a comparison with other databases or a transfer to third parties, even in excerpts, does not take place. Only in the context of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report, does a representation of the number of page views take place.
When visiting our Internet pages, we store certain information for administrative and technical reasons. These are: type and version of the browser used, date and time of access, as well as the IP address.
This anonymous data is stored separately from personal data on secure systems and cannot be assigned to any individual person(s). This means your personal data will be protected at all times.
When you visit our Internet pages, we may store information on your computer in the form of cookies. Cookies are small files that are transferred from an internet server to your browser and stored on its hard drive. Only the Internet protocol address is stored here and no personal data. This information, which is stored in the cookies, allows you to be automatically recognized on your next visit to our website which will make use easier.

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization
Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland, hereinafter referred to as “Google“. Google Analytics employs so-called “cookies“, text files that are stored to your computer in order to facilitate an analysis of your use of the site.
The information generated by these cookies, such as time, place and frequency of your visits to our site, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google’s location in the US and stored there.
We use Google Analytics with an IP anonymization feature on our website. In doing so, Google abbreviates and thereby anonymizes your IP address before transferring it from member states of the European Union or signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google will use this information to evaluate your usage of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us, and to provide other services related to website- and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or to the extent this data is processed by third parties on Google´s behalf.
Google states that it will in never associate your IP address with other data held by Google. You can prevent cookies from being installed by adjusting the settings on your browser software accordingly. You should be aware, however, that by doing so you may not be able to make full use of all the functions of our website.
Google also offers a disabling option for the most common browsers, thereby providing you with greater control over the data which is collected and processed by Google. If you enable this option, no information regarding your website visit is transmitted to Google Analytics. However, the activation does not prevent the transmission of information to us or to any other web analytics services we may use. For more information about the disabling option provided by Google, and how to enable this option, visit: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
If you visit our site through a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you need to click this link instead to block Google Analytics tracking within this site in the future. This is also possible as an alternative to the above browser add-on. Clicking on the link will set an opt-out cookie in your browser which is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie is also deleted, so you must click the link again.
If you've consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalize your ads, Google will use your data with Google Analytics data to create target group lists for cross-device remarketing. To do this, Google Analytics will initially track your Google-authenticated ID associated with your Google account (that’s your personally identifiable information) on our website. Afterwards, Google Analytics will temporarily link your ID with your Google Analytics data to optimize our target groups
If you do not agree to this, you can opt-out through the "My Account" section of your Google account.
Google Web Fonts
This website uses so-called web fonts, provided by Google, for the uniform representation of fonts. When you call up a page your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache to display texts and fonts correctly. If your browser does not support web fonts, a default font will be used by your computer.
Hotjar web analytics
This website uses Hotjar, an analysis tool of Hotjar Ltd., Level 2, St Julian's Business Center, 3, Elia Zammit Street, St Julian's STJ 1000, Malta. This makes it possible to measure and evaluate the usage behavior (clicks, mouse movements, scrolling height, etc.) on our website. The information generated by the "tracking code" and "cookie" about your visit to our website is transmitted to the Hotjar servers in Ireland and stored there. The tracking code collects information which includes: the IP address of your device (collected and saved in an anonymized format), your e-mail address including your first and last name (as long as you have made them available via our website,) geographical position (country only) as well as log data such as the referencing domain, visited pages, etc. Hotjar uses this information to evaluate your use of our website, to generate reports of use, as well as other services concerning the website use and internet evaluation of the website. Hotjar also uses third-party services, such as Google Analytics and Optimizely. These third parties can store information that your browser sends during the visit, such as cookies or IP requests. For more information on how to store and use Google Analytics and Optimizely data, please refer to their respective privacy statements.

Newsletter via Newsletter2go
If you would like to receive the newsletter offered on the website, we need an e-mail address from you as well as information that allows us to verify you as the owner of the e-mail address given and that you agree with the receipt of the newsletter. To ensure that the newsletter is correctly sent by us, we use the double-opt-in procedure. Using this, the potential recipient can then be included in a distribution list. Afterwards, the recipient receives a confirmation e-mail to legally confirm the application. Only when this confirmation is made, can the address be actively included in the distribution list. We use this data exclusively for the delivery of the requested information and offers.
Newsletter2Go is used as newsletter software. Your data will be transmitted to Newsletter2Go GmbH who is prohibited from selling and using your data for purposes other than sending newsletters. Newsletter2Go is a certified German provider, which was selected according to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation and the Federal Data Protection Act.
Further information can be found here: https://www.newsletter2go.de/informationen-newsletter-empfaenger/
The consent granted for the storage of data, the e-mail address and its use for sending the newsletter can be revoked at any time, for example via the "unsubscribe" link in the newsletter.
The newsletters contain a so-called "web-beacon", a pixel-sized file that is retrieved from the server of Newsletter2Go when the newsletter is opened. This call will initially collect technical information, such as information about the browser and your system, as well as your IP address and time of retrieval. This information is used to technically improve services based on specifications of target groups and their reading habits, using their call locations (only using nearby wireless mast locations) or access times. Statistical surveys also include determining if the newsletters will be opened, when they will be opened, and which links will be clicked. For technical reasons, this information can be assigned to individual newsletter recipients. However, it is neither our desire nor that of Newsletter2Go to observe individual users and these evaluations serve much more to recognize the reading habits of our users and to adapt our content to them or to send different content according to the interests of our users.
