We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., for the purpose of tailoring our web pages to meet your needs and continually optimising them. (https://www.google.de/intl/de/about/) (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter referred to as “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (see also section 5) are set. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as browser type/version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited page), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. This information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website and Internet use for market research purposes and to tailor the design of these websites to meet customer requirements. Our legitimate interest in data processing also lies in these purposes. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG in connection with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
This information may also be transferred to third parties where required to do so by law, or where such third parties process the information on Google Analytics’ behalf.

Google AdWords / Conversion Tracking
We also use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” as part of Google AdWords conversion tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service provided by Google. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is placed on your device. These cookies lose their validity after 30 days, do not contain any personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, Google and we may recognize that you clicked on the ad and were directed to that page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As a result, there is no way that cookies can be tracked from AdWords customer websites. The information collected from the Conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for Conversion Tracking. This tells customers the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were directed to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users. These purposes also include our legitimate interest in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google AdWords/ Conversion Tracking is § 15 para. 3 TMG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of cookies from the domain “googleadservices.com” by setting your browser software accordingly (deactivation option). They will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
