Use of Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called cookies, i.e. text files, which are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of the use of our website by you. The information on your use of the website generated by the cookies is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. If IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will, prior to transmission, shorten your IP address within the Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Treaty on the European Economic Area. 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 of the website activities and to provide additional services associated with website use and internet use to the website operator.

Use of social media plugins

At the moment, we are using the following social media plugins: LinkedIn. We use the so-called ‘two-clicks solution’, i.e. when you visit our website, personal data is as a rule not forwarded to the providers of these plugins. You can identify the provider of the plugin by the marking on the grayed box with the help of the initial letter. Data that can be related to you personally will only be transmitted when you click on one of the plugins. Activation of a plugin will cause data to be transmitted automatically to the respective plugin provider and to be stored there (at US-American providers in the USA). We have no influence on the data acquired and the data processing and we do not know the full extent of data acquisition, the purposes and the storage periods. As the plugin provider acquires data in particular by means of cookies, we recommend deleting all cookies using the security settings of your browser before you click on the grayed box.
The plugin provider will store this data as user profiles and use it for advertising, market research and/or the demand-based design of its website. Such evaluation will take place (also for users who are not logged on) in particular to show demand-based advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have a right to object to the creation of these user profiles but need to contact the respective plugin provider to exercise it.
