Only with your express consent are some data processing operations possible. A revocation of your already given consent is possible at any time. An informal notification by e-mail is sufficient for the revocation. The lawfulness of the data processing carried out up to the revocation remains unaffected by the revocation.
As the person concerned, you have the right to complain to the responsible supervisory authority in the event of a violation of data protection laws. The competent supervisory authority with regard to data protection issues is the data protection commissioner of the federal state in which our company is located.

Some cookies are "session cookies." Such cookies are automatically deleted at the end of your browser session. However, other cookies remain on your device until you delete them yourself. Such cookies help us to recognize you when you return to our website.
With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured so that cookies are automatically deleted when the program is closed. Deactivating cookies can restrict the functionality of our website.
The setting of cookies, which are necessary to carry out electronic communication processes or to provide certain functions you wish to use (e.g. shopping cart), is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in storing cookies for the technically error-free and smooth provision of our services. If other cookies are set (e.g. for analysis functions), these will be treated separately in this data protection declaration.
Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "cookies." These are small text files that your web browser saves on your end device and that enable website usage to be analyzed. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website
are transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The server location is usually the USA.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit.f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and, if necessary, advertising.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization function. It ensures that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before it is transmitted to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transmits the full IP address to a server in the USA and abbreviates it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.
The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, this could limit some functions of our website. You can also prevent the collection of data regarding your website usage including your IP address and subsequent processing by Google. You can do this by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by rejecting the cookie. An opt-out cookie will be set which prevents the collection of your data on future visits to our website: Deactivate Google Analytics.
You can find details on how to handle user data on Google Analytics in Google's data protection declaration: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=de.
In order to fully comply with the statutory data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing contract with Google.
Our website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. You can do this via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section “Objection to data collection”.
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
Our website uses Google AdWords. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States.
AdWords is an online advertising program. We work with conversion tracking as part of the online advertising program. After clicking on an advertisement placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that your web browser stores on your device. Google AdWords cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to personally identify users. Google and we can tell from the cookie that you clicked on an ad and were forwarded to our website.
Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. Conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who use conversion tracking. Adwords customers find out how many users clicked on their ad and were redirected to pages with a conversion tracking tag. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can object to its use. Here the conversion cookie must be deactivated in the user settings of the browser. There is no inclusion in the conversion tracking statistics.
“Conversion cookies” are saved on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As a website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and our advertising.
With a modern web browser you can monitor, restrict or prevent the setting of cookies. Deactivating cookies can restrict the functionality of our website.
