6. Online marketing/analysis tools

The tracking measures employed by us are implemented in accordance with Art. 6 par. 1 subparagraph 1 lit. f GDPR and Section 15 par. 3 TMG (German Telemedia Act). By implementing tracking measures we aim to ensure that our website is fit for purpose and to guarantee its ongoing optimisation. We also employ tracking measures for compiling statistics on our website that we may evaluate and use to optimise our web presence. These interests are legitimate in the meaning of the provisions named above.

Google Analytics
To ensure that our website is fit for purpose and to guarantee its ongoing optimisation, we use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc. ( (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter "Google"). In this context, pseudonymised user profiles are created and cookies (See also Section 5) implemented. The data pertaining to your use of this website generated by the cookie, such as browser type, version, operating system used, referrer URL (the previously visited site), host name of the accessing computer (IP address) and the time of the server request, are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information will be used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities and to render services connected to website and internet use for market research purposes and ensuring the design of the website continues to be fit for purpose. These purposes constitute part of our legitimate interests in data processing. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Section 15 par. 3 TMG in conjunction with Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If necessary, this information will also be passed on to third parties, provided that there is a legal requirement for this or if third parties have been commissioned to process the data. Under no circumstances will your IP address be conflated with your data from Google. The IP addresses will be anonymised to ensure that identification is not possible (so-called IP masking).

The opt-out cookie is only active in this browser and only for our website and will be stored on your device.

Google AdWords/Conversion Tracking
In addition, we use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and conversion tracking in the context of Google AdWords. Google Conversion Tracking is a analysis service provided by Google.

Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. As such there is no possibility that cookies can be retraced via websites from AdWords customers. The information which is gathered via the conversion cookie serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted into conversion tracking. This enables the customers to deduce the total number of users who have clicked on adverts and were forwarded to a website with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information which would enable users to be personally identified. These purposes constitute part of our legitimate interests in data processing .The legal basis for the use of Google AdWords/Conversion Tracking is Section 15 Par. 3 TMG in conjunction with Art. 6 par. 1 lit. f GDPR.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can veto this by preventing the installation of cookies from the domain “” through the corresponding settings in your browser (deactivation option). Consequently, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. Further information in addition Google’s privacy policy can be found at:,
