Our website uses so-called cookies (further information on cookies can be found on the SIWA information page). These are small text files, which are stored by your browser on your end device.

Web analysis with Google Analytics
Our online systems use functions from the web analysis service Google Analytics provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereafter referred to as “Google”).
In the event that IP address anonymisation has been activated for web content, the address will as a rule be abbreviated in advance within the EU. However, it is possible in specific exceptional cases that the entire IP address may first be transferred to the USA - to a Google server - and only abbreviated there. Information on the anonymisation of IP addresses can be found directly from Google at https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/2763052?hl=de
You can prevent data from being captured by Google by adjusting your browser settings in such a manner so as not to save/store any cookies. In order to do so, you can for example download and install a browser plugin directly from Google: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
In addition, we have concluded a corresponding contract data processing agreement with Google.
Details concerning the Terms of Service can be found at the following link: https://www.google.de/analytics/terms/de.html - further information can also be found at http://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/

Our websites use temporary or permanent functions of Google AdWords (an online marketing and advertising tool) of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
By using cookies, adverts are displayed to users in a targeted manner on other homepages within the so-called Google display network.

You can adjust the settings for the Google display network under the following link: https://adssettings.google.de
Our websites also use functions from the map service Google Maps provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
When using Google Maps, data will also be collected, processed and used by Google concerning the usage of map functions by visitors to the current websites.

Our websites also use extensions in various places from the platform YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA, operated by Google.
