Use of the remarketing or "similar target groups"-function of Google Inc.

The provider uses the remarketing or "similar target groups" function of Google Inc. (“Google”) on the website. By means of this function the provider can address the visitors of the website with target-oriented advertising by placing personalised, interest-related advertisements for visitors of the provider’s website if they visit other websites in the Google display network. Google uses so-called cookies in order to conduct the analysis of the website use, which forms the basis for creating the interest-related advertisements. Google stores a small file with a sequence of numbers in the browsers of the visitors of the website for this purpose. The visits of the website as well as anonymised data regarding the use of the website are recorded through this number. Personal data of the visitors of the website are not stored. If you subsequently visit another website in the Google display network advertisements will be displayed to you, which with a high degree of probability take previously called product and information areas into consideration. You can permanently deactivate the use of cookies by Google by following the link below and downloading and installing the plugin made available there: https://www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin?hl=en. Alternatively you can deactivate the use of cookies by third party providers by calling the deactivation side of the Network Advertising Initiative under http://www.networkadvertising.org/choices/ and implementing the further information stated there for the opt-out. You can view further information relating to Google remarketing and the privacy policy of Google under: http://www.google.com/privacy/ads/

Use of Google Analytics
This website uses the functions of the web analytics service Google Analytics. Provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies". These are text files that are stored on your computer and allow an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if you enable IP anonymization on this website, Google will previously shorten your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the EEA Agreement. Only in exceptional cases the full IP address is transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide further services associated with the use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all the functions of this website in full. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. For more information on terms of use and privacy, please visit https://www.google.com/analytics/terms/de.html or https://www.google.de/intl/de/policies/ einsehen. Note: on this website Google Analytics has been extended by the code "anonymizeIp" to ensure anonymous IP address collection (so-called IP masking).

Use of Google Adwords Conversion-Tracking
We use the online advertising programme “Google AdWords” and within the framework of Google AdWords we use Conversion Tracking. Google Conversion Tracking is an analysis service of Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”). If you click on an advertisement placed by Google a cookie for Conversion-Tracking will be filed on your computer. These cookies have a limited validity, do not contain any personal data and therefore do not serve for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not expired yet, Google and we can recognise that you have clicked on the advertisement and were forwarded to this site. Each Google AdWords customer receives another cookie. There is thus no possibility that cookies can be tracked via the websites of AdWords customers. The information, which is obtained with the help of the conversion cookie, serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have chosen Conversion-Tracking. The customers hereby find out the total number of users, who have clicked on their advertisement and were forwarded to a site fitted with a Conversion-Tracking-Tag. However, they do not receive any information, with which users can be personally identified. If you would not like to take part in the tracking, you can object to this use by preventing the installation of the cookies by a corresponding setting of your browser software (deactivation possibility). You will subsequently not be included in the Conversion-Tracking statistics. You can find further information as well as the privacy policy of Google under: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
