We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”), on our websites. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies,” which are text files that are stored on your terminal device and enable us to analyze your use of our websites. The information about your use of our websites that is generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there. Because IP anonymization is activated, however, your IP address is first truncated by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other signatory states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. Google uses this information on our behalf to analyze your use of the website, to compile reports of website activities and to provide other services to us related to website use and Internet use. The IP address transmitted from your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not commingled with other data of Google.

Commonly used Internet browsers are set by default to accept cookies as a rule. This setting can be changed in the browser’s Internet options.
We use the offering of Google Adwords to bring attention to our attractive offerings with the aid of advertisements (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. Based on data from advertising campaigns, we can determine the success of individual advertising measures. We do this in the interest of showing you ads that are of interest to you, making our website more interesting for you and ensuring the fair charging of advertising costs.
Google delivers these ads via so-called “ad servers”. To this end, we use ad server cookies with which certain parameters of success measurements, such as the placement of ads or clicks by the user. If you come to our website from a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually lose their validity after 30 days and are not meant to identify you personally. Analysis values such as the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (indication that the user no longer wants to be targeted) are generally stored in this cookie.
These cookies allow Google to recognise your Internet browser again. If a user visits certain pages of the website of an Adwords customer and the cookie stored on his computer has not yet expired, Google and the customer can tell that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. A different cookie is assigned to every Adwords customer. Therefore, the cookies cannot be traced back to the web sites of Adwords customers. We ourselves do not collect or process any personal data in the aforementioned advertisement measures. We only receive statistical analyses from Google. Based on these analyses, we can determine which of our advertising measures are especially effective. We do not receive any data from the use of advertisements and in particular, we are unable to identify users on the basis of this data.
Due to the marketing tools in use, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection with the Google’s server. We have no influence over the scope and further use of data collected from Google’s use of this tool and therefore the following information reflects our current knowledge: Due to the integration of AdWords Conversion, Google receives the information that you have visited the corresponding part of our website or clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered for a Google service, Google can attribute the visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the vendor may find out and store your IP address.
You can prevent your participation in this tracking process in different ways: a) by changing the corresponding setting of your browser software; in particular, the suppression of third-party cookies means that you will no longer receive ads from third-party vendors; b) by deactivating the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser in such a way that cookies from the domain “www.googleadservices.com” are blocked,
