4. Data Collection on Our Website
Our website uses so-called cookies in some areas. Cookies do not harm your computer and do not contain viruses. They are designed to make our offering more user-friendly, effective, and secure. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser.
Most of the cookies we use are called "session cookies." They are automatically deleted after your visit. Other cookies remain on your device until you delete them. These cookies allow us to recognize your browser on your next visit.
4.2. Server Log Files
he provider automatically collects and stores general data and information each time the website is accessed by a data subject or an automated system. This data is automatically transmitted by your browser.
4.2.1. (Anonymized) Client IP
To detect potential attacks on our servers, the provider collects complete IP addresses, which are stored for seven days and then anonymized. As operators, we can only view the IP addresses in the log files in anonymized form, for example, 123.456.789.001 becomes anon-123-456-165-41.invalid.
When using this general data and information, we do not draw any conclusions about the data subject. Rather, this information is needed to: • deliver the contents of our website correctly, • ensure the permanent functionality of our information technology systems and the technology of our website, and • provide law enforcement authorities with the information necessary for prosecution in the event of a cyberattack.
We evaluate this data and information in an anonymous form in order to increase data security within our company and to ensure an optimal level of protection for the personal data we process. The anonymous data in the server log files is stored separately from all personal data provided by a data subject.
No merging of this data with other data sources takes place. The collection of this data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the technically error-free presentation and optimization of its website, for which the server log files must be collected.
4.3. Contact Form
If you send us inquiries via the contact form, your information from the inquiry form, including the contact details you provide, will be stored by us for the purpose of processing the inquiry and for any follow-up questions. We will not share this information without your consent.
The processing of the data entered in the contact form is thus based exclusively on your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You can revoke this consent at any time. An informal message to us via email is sufficient. The legality of data processing operations carried out before the revocation remains unaffected.
The data you enter in the contact form will remain with us until you request us to delete it, revoke your consent for storage, or the purpose for data storage no longer applies (e.g., after your request has been processed).

The legality of data processing carried out before the revocation remains unaffected.

5. Analytical Tools and Advertising
5.1. Google Analytics
This website uses features of the web analytics service Google Analytics. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
The storage of Google Analytics cookies and the use of this analytical tool are based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
5.1.1. IP Anonymization
We have activated the IP anonymization feature on this website. This means that Google will shorten your IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmitting it to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity, and to provide other services related to website usage and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
5.1.2. Browser Plugin
You can prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting your browser software settings accordingly. However, please note that if you do so, you may not be able to use all the features of this website to their full extent.

5.1.3. Opt-Out of Data Collection
5.1.4. Data Processing Agreement
We have entered into a data processing agreement with Google and fully implement the strict requirements of German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics.
5.1.5. Demographic Features in Google Analytics
This website uses the "demographic features" function of Google Analytics. This allows reports to be generated that contain information about the age, gender, and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google and visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be attributed to any specific individual. You can disable this feature at any time in the ad settings of your Google account or generally prohibit Google Analytics from collecting your data as described in the "Opt-Out of Data Collection" section above.
5.2. Google Analytics Remarketing
Our websites use the features of Google Analytics Remarketing combined with the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
This feature allows us to link target audience lists created with Google Analytics Remarketing to the cross-device capabilities of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. This way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to your previous usage and browsing behavior on one device (e.g., mobile phone) can also be displayed on another of your devices (e.g., tablet or PC).
If you have given appropriate consent, Google will associate your web and app browsing history with your Google account for this purpose. This way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on any device you sign in to with your Google account.
To support this feature, Google Analytics collects Google-authenticated IDs of users temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device ad promotion.
You can permanently opt out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account; follow this link: [Link].
The aggregation of the data collected in your Google Account data is based solely on your consent, which you can give or withdraw from Google (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). For data collection operations that are not merged into your Google Account (for example, because you do not have a Google Account or have objected to the merge), the collection of data is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing anonymous user behavior for promotional purposes.

Our website uses Google Tag Management (GTM). GTM allows us to manage website tags via an interface without having to modify the source code. The tool itself (which implements the tags) is a cookie-less domain and does not collect any personal data. GTM triggers other tags that may collect data. However, Google Tag Management does not access this data. It is used solely to activate other tags that may collect data. The use of GTM complies with privacy regulations and legal requirements.
5.3. Facebook Pixel
Our website uses the Facebook Pixel, an analysis tool from Facebook. This tool allows us to track the actions of users after they click on a Facebook ad and are redirected to our website. The Pixel enables an analysis of user behavior on our site, helping us make our Facebook advertising efforts more effective. The data collected by the Pixel is anonymous and does not provide us with insight into the identity of users. The use of the Facebook Pixel complies with applicable data protection regulations.
5.4. Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
This website uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States ("Google").
As part of Google AdWords, we use the so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser places on the user's computer. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify the user personally. If the user visits certain pages on this website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through AdWords advertisers' websites. The information obtained through the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by easily deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
Storage of "conversion cookies" and the use of this tracking tool are based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior to optimize both its website and its advertising.
You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies in individual cases, exclude the acceptance of cookies for certain cases or in general and activate the automatic deletion of cookies when closing the browser. If cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be restricted.
