Further personal data is only collected if the user of the website and/ or customer provides information voluntarily, for example in the context of the online application process, an inquiry or registration or for the conclusion of a contract or via the settings of his browser. The above-mentioned data is collected by us to enable a smooth connection setup as well as a comfortable use of our website. In addition, we use the above data to evaluate system security and stability and for other administrative purposes. The legal basis for this data collection is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR, whereby our legitimate interest lies in the aforementioned purposes for data collection.


Our website uses cookies. A cookie is a text file that is sent when visiting a website and is temporarily stored on the hard drive of the website user and/ or customer. If the corresponding server of our website is called up again by the user of the website and/ or customer, the browser of the user of the website and/ or customer sends the previously received cookie back to the server. The server can then evaluate the information obtained through this procedure in various ways. Cookies can be used, for example, to control advertising or to make it easier to navigate a website.

The user of the website and/ or customer can influence the use of cookies via the consent management tool "Cookiebot". In addition, if the Website User and/ or Customer wishes to completely disable the use of cookies, he/ she may do so by locally making changes to his/ her settings in the Internet browser used on his/ her computer, i.e., the program for opening and viewing Internet pages (e.g. Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Opera or Safari).

Disclosure of personal data

Your personal data will only be passed on to third parties if you have given your express consent to this in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR, if the transfer in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR is necessary for the assertion, exercise or defense of legal claims and there is no reason to believe that you have an overriding legitimate interest in not disclosing your data, if there is a legal obligation for the disclosure pursuant to Art. 6 para.1 lit. c GDPR and if this is legally permissible and necessary pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b GDPR for the processing of contractual relationships with you.

Google Analytics 4 as a web analysis tool

We use Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service of the Google Group (for users within the EU: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland; outside the EU: Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), on our website for the purposes of reach measurement, personalized online advertising, and remarketing. Google Analytics 4 uses cookies, Java Script, pixels, and device fingerprint.

The following personal information, among others, is collected and processed by default: Gender, interests (e.g. art, entertainment), the age group (e.g. 18-24, 25-34) of the users; continent, subcontinent, country, region city from which the user activity originates; device category (mobile, tablet), brand name and device model of the users; the platform on which the website or app was run, e.g. web, iOS or Android; operating system; the language set in the operating system of the device; operating system version; browser name.

We have also set up conversions. A conversion is any action by users, which is very valuable for us as a company: the cookie set by Google creates an anonymous profile of website visitors, which leads various data on their behavior and on the users themselves. We do not receive any information with which we can personally identify the user.

The data collected via Google Analytics 4 is transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google has self-certified under the EU-US Transatlantic Data Protection Framework. This means that Google is committed to maintaining a level of data protection comparable to that in the European Union.

The IP anonymization automatically activated in Google Analytics 4 means that your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area in order to ensure anonymized recording of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

The storage period of the data is two (2) months.

The legal basis of the processing is your consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR.

Use of Google Ads and conversion tracking

We use the online advertising program "Google Ads" on our website and in this context conversion tracking (visit action evaluation). Google conversion tracking is an analysis service provided by Google. Please note that Google may use personal data that you have provided, e.g. if you are logged into your Google account, have activated your location (GPS) and allow Google to access it, or are using an Android device. Google does not share this data with us. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is placed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can recognize that you clicked on the ad and were redirected to this page. Because each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie, there is no way that cookies can be tracked across Google Ads customers' websites.

The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used for the purpose of creating conversion statistics. Here, we learn the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a page tagged with a conversion tracking tag. In this context, we neither receive nor process information with which users can be personally identified. The legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR from the legitimate interest in targeted advertising and the analysis of the effect and efficiency of this advertising, whereby the weighing of interests did not result in any impairment of the rights and freedoms of the user.

Your rights: You have the right to object at any time to this processing of personal data concerning you based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR. To do so, you can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate technical settings on your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. In addition, you can deactivate personalized advertising for you in Google's advertising settings.

You can find instructions on how to do this at Further information as well as Google's privacy policy can be found at: and at

Google Tag Manager

To integrate and manage the described services of Google and, if applicable, other services of other providers listed here, we can use the "Google Tag Manager". The Google Tag Manager merely implements and manages tags; this service itself does not set any further cookies or collect any personal data.

You can access the usage guidelines of the Google Tag Manager here:

Doubleclick by Google

Since we show YouTube videos on our website, "Doubleclick by Google" is also used on the website. Doubleclick belongs to Google, just like YouTube. Doubleclick uses cookies for advertisements and measuring the success of advertisements. For this purpose, your browser is assigned a so-called pseudonymous identification number (pID). According to Google, DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information. However, Google uses the cookies and the pID to identify which pages have been visited in order to serve advertisements across pages and analyzes which ads have been displayed and which, if any, have been called up, i.e. clicked on. DoubleClick can use cookie IDs to record so-called conversions that relate to ad requests. In addition, we point out that Google can assign the website visit to your Google account if you are registered and logged in to one of the Google services. Even without registration or login, it is technically possible for Google to query and store your IP address. The information generated by the cookies is transferred by Google to a server in the USA or another EU third country for evaluation and stored there.

If you do not wish to receive personalized advertising, you can set this accordingly at To prevent tracking, you can adjust the cookie settings in your browser so that third-party cookies are suppressed. In addition, you can disable conversion tracking cookies from Google by blocking cookies from the domain "" in your browser. Please note that this setting only applies until you delete cookies. Finally, in popular browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Microsoft Edge (former Internet Explorer)) you can use a browser plugin that allows you to ensure permanent advertising settings. To do so, please visit

However, such a setting may mean that our website cannot be used without restrictions. For more information on DoubleClick by Google, please visit

Integration of YouTube videos

We use the plugin of the service YouTube, which belongs to Google (for users within the EU: Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House Barrow St, Dublin 4, Ireland; otherwise: Google LLC 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The plugin is recognizable on our site by the embedded video, which can be clicked on. When you click on the video on one of our pages, your browser establishes a direct connection with the servers of Youtube. The YouTube server thus receives information about which particular page of our website you have visited. If you are logged into your YouTube account or other Google account, you would enable YouTube or Google to associate your surfing behavior directly with your personal profile. Google also uses the data for personalized advertising, to customize its services and for market research. You can prevent this possibility of allocation if you log out of your account beforehand. You can also turn off personalized advertising in the settings in your Google account or on your Android device. For more information on this and to object to Google's use of data, see the privacy policy at Information on Google's privacy policy is also available in Google's statement on data collection and use at and at
