Optimizing our Internet presence to make it attractive to our visitors is of great importance to us. This requires us to know which parts of our website appeal to our visitors. Therefore, we use the following analysis tools:
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, text files saved onto your computer that allow your website use to be analyzed. The information on your website use generated by the cookie is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is saved. Google adheres to the privacy regulations of the International Safe Harbor Privacy Principles and is registered with the Safe Harbor program of the US Department of Commerce. If IP-anonymization is activated on our website, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states party to the European Economic Area Agreement. Only in exceptions will your full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the US and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to assess your use of this website, compile reports about website activity and perform additional services related to use of the website and the Internet for the website operator.
The IP address transmitted by your browser through Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" through which IP addresses are further processed in shortened form to exclude any personal references.
You can prevent cookies from being saved through your browser settings at any time. However, please note that doing so may prevent you from using every function of this website.
Furthermore, you can prevent the collection of cookie-generated data (including your IP address) on your use of the website and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in provided under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

Google Analytics – Order Processing Agreement–
Since, in the view of the supervisory authorities, website operators act as the client and Google serves as a contractor when using Google Analytics, we have concluded a written processing agreement with Google.
In addition, this website uses Google Conversion Tracking, a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). If you reach our website through a Google advertisement, Google Adwords will save a cookie on your computer. These cookies will be valid for 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain websites of the Adwords customer’s website before the cookie expires, Google and the customer can see that you clicked on the advertisement and were forwarded to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be traced through the websites of Adwords customers. The information obtained through the conversion cookie is used to prepare conversion statistics for Adwords customers who choose conversion tracking. Adwords customers will learn the total number of users who clicked on their advertisements and were forwarded to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, they will not receive any information through which users could be personally identified. You can also prevent participating in this tracking process by disabling the required cookies—e.g., by disabling third-party cookies in your browser settings. You can also disable conversion tracking cookies by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com." Please click here for more information about data protection when using Google's conversion tracking.
Google Tag Manager, a service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"), is a solution that provides a surface for marketers to manage website tags. The Tag Manager tool which implements tags is a cookie-free domain and does not collect personal data. However, the tool activates other tags which may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. In case of deactivation on the domain or cookie level, the deactivation will remain in place for all tracking tags implemented through Google Tag Manager. Please see this service's usage guidelines for more information.
This website uses Bing Ads (bingads.microsoft.com) which is provided and operated by the Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA ("Microsoft"). If you reach our website through a Microsoft Bing advertisement, Microsoft will save a cookie on your device. This allows Microsoft Bing and us to see that someone clicked on an advertisement that led to our website before reaching a specific target page (conversion page). We only learn the total number of users who clicked on a Bing advertisement and were forwarded to the conversion page. Microsoft uses these cookies to collect, process and use information to create anonymous usage profiles. Such usage profiles allow user behavior to be analyzed and are used to display advertisements. No personal information about a user's identity will be processed.
If you do not want Microsoft to use information about your behavior as described above, you may block the required cookies—e.g., by disabling cookies in your browser settings. You can also prevent the collection of your data generated by the cookie on use of our website and processing of this data by Microsoft by submitting an objection to the following link http://choice.microsoft.com/opt-out. Please see Microsoft's website for more information on privacy protection and the cookies used by Microsoft and Bing Ads https://privacy.microsoft.com/privacystatement.
You can use social media plugins (e.g., "Like" or "g+1" buttons) of the social networks Facebook, Google+ and Instagram (hereafter "provider") on our website to, e.g., share contents or recommend products (hereafter "plugin“).
We have no influence over the collected data or processing processes and are not aware of the full extent of the data collection, processing purposes or storage periods. Nor do we have any information about the deletion of collected data by the plugin provider.
The plugin provider saves the data collected about you in usage profiles which are used for advertising, market research and/or need-based website design purposes. Such assessments are especially performed (even for users not logged in) to offer need-based advertisements and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles which you may exercise by contacting the respective plugin provider. Plugins enable you to interact with the social networks of other users which helps us optimize our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of plugins is Art. 6(1) sentence 1 letter f of the General Data Protection Regulation.
If you open a page of our website that features such a plugin, your browser will automatically establish a direct connection to the servers of the respective plugin providers. The provider transmits the contents of the plugin directly to your browser whereby the contents are integrated on our website. This integration informs the provider that you opened the respective page of our website, even if you do not have an according user account or are not logged in to the respective service. Your browser will transmit this information (including your IP address) directly to a server of the respective provider in the US where it is saved as a usage profile and used for advertising, market research and/or need-based website design purposes.
You have the right to object to the creation of such user profiles which you may exercise by contacting the respective plugin provider. Please find the according links below.
If you are logged in to your Facebook, Google or Instagram account when visiting our website, the respective provider may assign your visit to our website to your user account. If you interact with a plugin, e.g., by activating the "Like" or "g+1" button, the according information will also be transmitted directly to a server of the respective provider in the US where it will be saved. The information will also be published on the respective social network through your user account and shared with your contacts.
Even if you are not logged in to accounts of the respective plugin providers when visiting our website, the data collected by the plugins may be assigned to your user account. When visiting our website, plugins will save cookies with an identifier. Since your browser transmits this cookie without solicitation when a connection to the provider's server is established, Facebook, Google and Instagram may use it to create a profile on which Internet pages were opened by the user with the respective identifier. This identifier could then be used to identify a specific person—e.g., when logging in to an account of the respective provider.
Data will be transmitted irrespective of whether you have an according user account or are logged in to the respective service. If you are logged in to your plugin provider account, the data collected by us will be assigned directly to your plugin provider account. If you click on the activated button and, e.g. link this page, the plugin provider will also save this information on your user account and will publicly share it with your contacts. We recommend logging out regularly after using a social network account, especially before activating the button, since this will prevent assignments to your plugin provider profile.
If you do not want your profile to be assigned to the respective plugin provider, please log out of the respective service before visiting our website. Furthermore, you can set your browser to "Block third-party cookies" to prevent your browser from sending cookies to the respective social network servers. However, this setting may also disable other functions of other providers on our pages in addition to the plugins. You can disable social media plugins entirely through special browser add-ons, e.g., the script blocker "NoScript" (available at http://noscript.net/).
For more information about the purpose and extent of data collection and processing by the plugin provider, please see the following privacy policies of the respective providers where you can also find information about your according rights and settings options for the protection of your privacy and your right to object to the creation of user profiles.
Facebook is operated by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. Please see the following link for an overview of Facebook's plugins: https://developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins. Facebook's data policy can be found at: http://www.facebook.com/policy.php.

In addition we use Critereo SA to collect data for usage-based online advertisements. This service provider collects information on activities on our website (e.g. surfing behavior, pages visited, etc.) which is summarized through anonymous usage profiles. These profiles are used to display usage-based advertisements. This service uses so-called cookies, i.e., text files saved on your computer that allow your use of our website to be analyzed. Usage data is saved using pseudonyms to prevent personal identification. Although your computer's IP address will be transmitted for technical reasons, it will not be saved or used for targeted advertisement displays.
