§ 8 Google Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files that are stored on your computer, and which help analyse your use of the website. As a rule, the cookie-generated data regarding your use of this website will be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will first be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other states that are contracting parties to the agreement in the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, for compiling reports on website activity, and for providing other services regarding website activity and internet usage to the website operator.
(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with any other data held by Google.
(3) You can prevent cookies from being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser; however, we wish to point out that by doing so, you may not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (including your IP address) from being passed on to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link : http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. Alternatively, you can use the following link to disable Google Analytics. This method sets an opt-out cookie that prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website.
(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()". As a result, IP addresses are further processed in truncated form, so that reference to individuals can be ruled out. If the data collected about you is personally identifiable, it will be blocked immediately and the personal data deleted as soon as possible.
(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. Using the statistics gained, we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user.

§ 11 DoubleClick by Google

This website continues to use the Online Marketing Tool DoubleClick by Google. DoubleClick uses cookies to show relevant ads for users, improve campaign performance reports, or to avoid that a user sees the same ads several times. Google records, via a cookie ID, which ads are shown in which browser, and, in this way, is able to avoid that these ads are shown several times. In addition, with the aid of cookie IDs DoubleClick can record so-called conversions which are directly related to the ad requests. This would be the case if a user sees a DoubleClick ad and later visits the advertiser´s website and buys something from there with the same browser. According to Google, the DoubleClick cookies do not contain any personal information. Due to the marketing tools used, your browser will automatically establish a direct connection to the Google server. We do not have any influence whatsoever on the scope and the further use of the data which are collected with the aid of this tool by Google, and we therefore inform you according to our information status: Due to the integration of DoubleClick, Google receives the information that you have visited the respective part of our website or have clicked on one of our ads. If you are registered with one of the Google services, Google can associate this visit to your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in to your account, the possibility exists that the provider finds out and stores your IP address. In addition, DoubleClick Floodlight cookies enable us to understand if you complete certain actions on our website after you have seen or clicked through one of our display/video advertisements served on Google or other platforms via DoubleClick (conversion tracking). DoubleClick uses these cookies to understand the contents you have interacted with on our websites in order to be able to send you targeted advertisements in future. There are different ways in which you can prevent your participation in this tracking process: a) by setting your browser software accordingly, in particular, suppressing third-party cookies will prevent you from receiving any third-party ads; b) by disabling the cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the domain "www.googleadservices.com", https://www.google.de/settings/ads, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; c) by deactivating the interest-based advertisements of the providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation campaign via the link http://www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted when you delete your cookies; d) by permanent deactivation in your browser´s Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link http://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin; e) by setting your cookies accordingly. Please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. You will find further information about DoubleClick by Google under the following link: https://www.google.de/doubleclick, and about data privacy at Google in general under this link: https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy.

Google has subjected to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

§ 12 Social media

(1) We are currently using the following social media platforms: Facebook, YouTube, Google+, Xing, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram. This means that personal data will not be transmitted to the providers in the first place when you visit our website. You will be able to identify the providers and their platform by the corresponding company logos. The providers will only receive the information that their websites are being visited once you click on the respective links and thus visit their sites. Before clicking on one of the logos, we recommend deleting all cookies in the security settings of your browser as the providers collect data especially by means of these cookies. 

(2) We neither have an influence on the collected data and the data processing activities, nor are we aware of the entire scope of the data collection, the processing purposes, or the retention periods. We do not have any information on the erasure of the collected data by the plug-in providers either. 

(3) The providers store the data collected about you as user profiles and use these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or the demand-oriented design of their websites. This evaluation is carried out (also for not logged-in users) in particular to display 

demand-oriented advertisements, and to inform other social network users about your activities on our website. You have the right to object against the establishment of these user profiles. You must contact the respective providers for exercising this right. Through the providers´ offers, you have the possibility to interact with social networks and other users so that we can improve our offers and make them more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for this use is Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR.

(4) Data transfer takes place independently from whether you have an account with the providers and are logged in. If you are logged in to the provider´s account, your data collected by us are directly associated with the account you have with this provider. If you click on the button and link the page, for instance, the provider will store also this information in your user account and will publicly notify your contacts thereof. We recommend logging out regularly after using a social network, however, especially before visiting the site via the button, as this will prevent the providers from associating your profile accordingly. 

(5) You will find further information about the purpose and the scope of data collection and processing by the providers in the data privacy statements of these providers indicated hereafter. There you will also receive further information on your respective rights and setting options for the protection of your private sphere.

Each time one of the individual pages of this website is visited, which is operated by us and on which a Facebook component (Facebook plug-in) has been integrated, the internet browser of the data subject´s information technology system is induced automatically by the respective Facebook component to download a display of the corresponding Facebook component from Facebook. The complete overview of all Facebook plug-ins can be viewed via developers.facebook.com/docs/plugins/. By means of this technical procedure, Facebook obtains the information about which particular sub-pages of our website are visited by the data subject. If the data subject is logged in to Facebook at the same time, Facebook recognises each time our website is visited by the data subject, and for the entire duration of the visit, which particular sub-pages of our website are visited by the data subject. This information is collected by the Facebook component and associated to the respective Facebook account of the data subject by Facebook. If the data subject engages one of the Facebook buttons located on our website, for example the “Like” button, or if the data subject posts a comment, Facebook associates this information to the data subject´s personal Facebook user account and stores the respective personal data. Facebook receives a notification via the Facebook component that the data subject has visited our website, every time the data subject is also logged in to Facebook when visiting our website; this takes place independently from whether the data subject clicks on the Facebook component or not. 

If the data subjects do not want this information to be transmitted to Facebook, they can prevent this transmission by logging out of their Facebook accounts before visiting our website. The Facebook Privacy Policy, which can be viewed under de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/, provides further information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by Facebook.

This information is collected by YouTube and Google, and associated to the respective YouTube account of the data subject. YouTube and Google receive a notification via the YouTube component that the data subject has visited our website, every time the data subject is also logged in to YouTube when visiting our website; this takes place independently from whether the data subject clicks on a YouTube video or not. If the data subjects do not want this information to be transmitted to YouTube and Google, they can prevent this transmission by logging out of their YouTube accounts before visiting our website. The YouTube Privacy Policy, which can be viewed under www.google.de/intl/de/policies/privacy/, provides further information about the collection, processing and use of personal data by YouTube and Google. As far as smartphones and tablets are concerned, the above-mentioned services are often not implemented by plug-ins but by a “Share” function integrated in the device.

Google records information about your +1 activities in order to improve Google services for you and other users. To be able to use the Google +1 button, you need a public Google profile that is visible worldwide and that must include at least the name chosen for the profile. This name will be used by all Google services. In some cases, this name can also replace another name which you have used when sharing contents via your Google account. The identity of your Google profile can be displayed to users who know your e-mail address or have other identifying information about you. Use of the collected information:
