(1) browser types and versions used,
(2) the operating system used by the accessing system,
(3) the website from which an accessing system reaches our website (referrers),
(4) sub-webpages that are controlled via an accessing system on our website,

We do not draw any conclusions concerning you when using these general data and information. Instead, this information is needed to

(2) optimise the contents of our website and advertisements for it,
(3) ensure permanent function of our information-technology systems and the technology of our website

If there are any indications of illegal use of our website, however, we are able to subsequently inspect these data.
Due to legal regulations, our website contains information that enables quick electronic contact to our company as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data you provide will be automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis will be stored for the purposes of processing or contacting you. There is no disclosure of this personal data to third parties.
Customers can register with us
You can register on our website by stating your personal data. Which personal data is transmitted to us results from the respective input mask used for registration. The personal data entered by you will be collected and stored exclusively for internal use by us and for our own purposes. However, we can arrange for the data to be transferred to one or more contract processors, for example a parcel service provider, who will then also use the personal data exclusively for internal use attributable to us.
When you register on our website, the IP address assigned to you, the date and time of registration are also stored. This data is stored because that this is the only way to prevent misuse of our services and, if necessary, to enable us to investigate criminal offences committed. In this respect, the storage of this data is necessary for our protection. These data are only transferred to third parties if there is a legal obligation to transfer them or if the transfer serves the purpose of criminal prosecution.
Your registration is subject to the voluntary disclosure of personal data and serves to provide you with contents or services, which can be offered only to registered users due to the nature of the matter. Registered persons are generally free to change the personal data provided during registration at any time or to have it completely deleted from our database, unless the right to deletion is restricted by law.
Upon request, we will inform you at any time which personal data about you is stored. Furthermore, we correct or delete personal data at your request, unless the rights to rectification or deletion are restricted by law. The data protection officer named in this privacy notice and all our employees are available to you as contact persons in this matter.
In the context of our Internet offer, for example to find branches and/or locations of our company, interactive maps of the map service "Google Maps API" of Google LLC are used.

The EU Commission's adequacy decision 2016/1250 determines an appropriate level of data protection for the USA due to the EU-US Privacy Shield.
If you do not wish the data to be transmitted, you can deactivate the map service and thus prevent the transfer of data to Google LLC. To do this, you must deactivate the Java Script in the browser.
II. Analysis tools
Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)
We have integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) on our website.
Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis means the collection, aggregation and evaluation of data concerning the behaviour of visitors on websites. A web analysis service collects, among others, data regarding from which website a data subject came to a website (referrers), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a subpage was viewed.
The operator company of the Google Analytics component is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of the Google Analytics component is analysis of the visitor flows on our website. Google uses the data and information gained among others to evaluate use of our website, in order to compile online reports for us that indicate the activities on our websites and in order to render further services connected to use of our website.
Google Analytics places a cookie in your system. By every call of a single page of this website on which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the Google Analytics component will automatically cause your web browser to transmit data to Google for the purpose of online analysis. Within the context of this technical procedure, Google will gain knowledge of personal data, such as your internet protocol address, in order to track the origin of the visitors and clicks. The cookie is used to store personal data, such as the access time, place from which an access took place and frequency of visits to our website by you. At every visit to our websites, these personal data, including the internet protocol address used by you, will be transmitted to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may pass on such personal data collected with technical means to third parties.
You may prevent setting of cookies at any time by making the corresponding setting in the web browser used and thereby permanently object to setting of cookies.
You are also able to object to recording of the data generated by Google Analytics referring to use of this website and processing of such data by Google and prevent this. For this, you must download a browser add-on under the link https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout and install it.
For further information and the applicable provisions on data protection of Google, see https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/. Google Analytics is explained in more detail under the link https://www.google.com/intl/de_de/analytics/.
III. Online marketing
We have integrated components of Google Adwords on our website.
Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that enables advertisers to place ads in both Google's search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. Google AdWords enables an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google's search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to thematically relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.
The operator of Google AdWords services is Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
If you access our website via a Google ad, Google will place a so-called conversion cookie on your system. A conversion cookie loses its validity after thirty days and is not used for your identification. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on our website. The conversion cookie enables us and Google to track whether you accessed our website via an AdWords ad and generated revenue, i.e. completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimize our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify you.
The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites you visit. Accordingly, personal data, including your IP address, is transferred to Google in the United States of America each time you visit our Internet website. This personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
You can prevent the setting of cookies at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the Internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.
