Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function
The information generated by these cookies, such as your IP address and the time, location and frequency of your website visits, is transmitted to Google in the United States and stored there.
We use Google Analytics on our website with its IP anonymization function. This means that Google shortens and anonymizes your IP address in member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google uses this information to analyze how you use our site, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services related to website activity and Internet use.

Use of Facebook components
On our website we use components from the provider facebook.com. Facebook is a service offered by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
Whenever you access a page on our website that features such a component, it prompts your browser to download a corresponding image of the Facebook component. As a result, Facebook is informed of the specific page on our website you are currently visiting.
If you visit our website while logged onto Facebook, Facebook recognizes, on the basis of the information collected by the component, which specific page you are visiting and assigns this information to your personal Facebook account. If, for example, you click the “Like” button or make relevant comments, this information is transmitted to your personal Facebook account and saved there. In addition, the fact that you have visited our site is disclosed to Facebook. This occurs regardless of whether you click the component or not.
If you wish to prevent the transmission and storage by Facebook of information about yourself and the way you use our website, you must log out of Facebook before visiting our site. The data privacy information provided by Facebook contains more detailed information, in particular on the collection and use of the data by Facebook, your rights in this regard, as well as the possible settings you can make to protect your privacy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/

Use of Instagram
To prevent Instagram from assigning your visit to your Instagram account, you must log out of your Instagram account before visiting our website.
Use of Google Adwords
We rely on the Google advertising tool “Google Adwords” to promote our website. Together with this tool, we also use, on our website, the “Conversion Tracking” analytics service of Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter “Google”). If you are directed to our website by a Google ad, a cookie will be stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your Internet browser downloads and stores on your computer. Such so-called conversion cookies expire after thirty days and are not used to identify you. If you visit specific pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that you, as a website user, clicked on one of our Google ads and were directed by it to our site.
Google draws on the information obtained with the help of conversion cookies to create visitor statistics for our website. These statistics let us know the total number of users who clicked our ad, as well as which pages on our website they subsequently viewed. However, we and others who advertise using Google Adwords do not receive information that can identify users personally.
You can prevent the installation of conversion cookies by making the relevant settings on your browser, such as the browser setting that generally disables the automatic installation of cookies or the setting that specifically blocks cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com.”
