bases and storage period
For the purpose of analysing and optimising our websites we use various services, which are described below. For example, we can analyse how many users visit our site, which information is most in demand or how users find the offer. Among other things, we collect data about the website from which a person has accessed a website (so-called referrer), which sub-pages of the website were accessed or how often and for how long a sub-page was viewed. This helps us to design and improve our offers in a user-friendly way. The data collected is not used to personally identify individual users. Anonymous or at most pseudonymous data is collected. The legal basis is art. 6, sub-section 1, lit. f) GDPR.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service operated by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. The use includes the Universal Analytics mode. This makes it possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thus analyse a user's activities across devices.

For reasons of transparency, we would like to point out that we use the Google Tag Manager. The Google Tag Manager itself does not collect any personal data. The Tag Manager makes it easier for us to integrate and manage our tags. Tags are small code elements used, among other things, to measure traffic and visitor behaviour, to measure the impact of on-line advertising and social channels, to set up re-marketing and targeting, and to test and optimise websites. If you have made a deactivation, this deactivation will be considered by Google Tag Manager. For more information about the Google Tag Manager see: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html.
The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is § 15 para. 3 TMG or art. 6, sub-section 1, lit. a) GDPR. The legitimate interest consists in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our on-line offer.
Conversion measurement with the visitor action pixel of Facebook
With your consent, we use the "visitor action pixel" of Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA ("Facebook") within our Internet presence. It allows us to track the actions of users who have seen or clicked on a Facebook ad. This enables us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook ads for statistical and market research purposes. The data collected in this way is anonymous to us, i.e. we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, about which we inform you according to our level of knowledge. Facebook may link this information to your Facebook account and also use it for its own promotional purposes, in accordance with Facebook's Data Usage Policy https://www.facebook.com/about/privacy/. You can allow Facebook and its partners to serve ads on and off Facebook. A cookie may also be stored on your computer for these purposes.
This consent may only be given by users older than 13 years of age. If you are younger, we ask your guardians for advice.

This on-line offer includes content from Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA), such as YouTube or Google Maps. This always presupposes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third party providers") are aware of the IP address of the users. Because without the IP address they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required for the display of this content. We make every effort to use only those contents whose respective providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the contents. However, we have no influence on this if the third party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. Where we are aware of this, we inform the users. The legal basis is art. 6, sub-section 1, lit. a) GDPR. The legitimate interest consists in the analysis, optimisation and economic operation of our on-line offer.
Your data is not transferred to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so, or the transfer of data is necessary for the execution of the contractual relationship, or you have previously expressly consented to the transfer of your data.
We have taken extensive technical and operational precautions to protect your data from accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorised persons. Our security procedures are regularly reviewed and adapted to technological progress.
