Cookies are used in several places on our web pages. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer and saved by your browser. They are intended to make our offerings more user-friendly, more effective and safer. In addition, cookies allow our systems to recognize your browser and offer you services. Cookies contain no personal data.
Use of Google AdWords Conversion Tracking
We use the online advertising program “Google AdWords” and along with it the AdWords conversion tracking. Google conversion tracking is an analyzing service of Google, Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; “Google”).
When you click on a Google AdWord, a cookie is placed on your computer for conversion tracking purposes. Such cookies expire after 30 days, contain no personal data and are, therefore, not used for personal identification.
When you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, it allows Google and us to recognize that you have clicked on the ad and were transferred to a specific page. Each Google AdWords client receives a different cookie. Therefore, no possibilities exist that cookies can be monitored through the web pages of an AdWords client.
The information gathered with the conversion cookie is intended to compile conversion statistics for those AdWords clients who have subscribed to conversion tracking. Clients learn the total number of users that have clicked on the ad and were transferred to a specific tagged page. However, they contain no information with which users could be personally identified.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can set your browser software to not store cookies (deactivation option). You will not be added to the tracking statistics. Additional information as well as Google’s data protection statement can be found here: http://www.google.de/policies/privacy/
Use of Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, an analyzing service of Google, Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer which allow an analysis of your website visit. Information regarding your website use is gathered by the cookie and is usually transferred to and stored on a server at Google in the USA. If this website has activated making IP addresses anonymous, Google will abridge your IP address within members of the European Union or other states within the European economic zone that are signatories to the agreement. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to Google in the USA and be abridged there. At the request of the owner of this website, Google will use such information in order to analyze website use, to compile reports regarding website activity and to provide additional services to the owner of this website. The IP address supplied by your browser in connection with Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data. You may prevent the storing of cookies by changing your browser settings, but you need to be aware that it is possible that you will not be able to fully use all of the functions of this website. Additionally, you may prevent the collection of website use data by the cookie (including your IP address) and the processing of such information by Google by downloading and installing the following available browser plug-in [http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de].
Use of Facebook Plug-Ins
These internet pages use plug-ins of the social network facebook.com which is operated by Facebook, Inc., 1601 S. California Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”). If you click on one of our pages containing such plug-in, a connection to Facebook servers is created through a message to your browser. This will tell the Facebook server which one of our pages you have visited. If you are logged in as a member of Facebook, this information is added to your Facebook account. When using the plug-in function (for instance, clicking the “Like” button or entering a comment) that information will also be added to your Facebook account. This can be avoided only by logging off your Facebook account prior to using the plug-in. Further information regarding Facebook’s collection and use of data, your rights and your options regarding maintaining your privacy can be found in the data security policies of Facebook.
Use of Google’s “+1” Button
These internet pages use the “+1” button of the social network Google Plus of Google, Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter “Google”). If you click on one of our pages containing the “+1” button, a connection to Google servers is created through a message to your browser. This will tell the Google server your IP address as well as which one of our pages you have visited. This happens whether or not you are a member of Google Plus and whether or not you are logged in. Transmission occurs even for non-members and not logged in members. The “+1” button is not used to collect information regarding your internet visits. Google does not constantly monitor your browser activity when using “+1” or use the information in any other way. Google stores your visit data for about two weeks for the purpose of system maintenance and error correction. Such data do not contain individual profiles, user names or URLs and are also not transmitted to us.
If you are a member of Google Plus and are logged in at the time that you use the plug-in, the information regarding your website visit will be merged with your Google Plus account and be made visible to other users. Also, in case of various possible interactions through Google plug-ins, information about you will be collected, transmitted and stored by Google. For an overview of different types of Google plug-ins you may want to visit: https://developers.google.com/+/plugins
If you have made your profile public in your Google Plus settings, your “+1” can be used by Google to show your profile name and your photo in Google services, such as search results or in your Google profile or other website places and internet ads. If you do not want Google to compile your information directly in your Google Plus profile, you need to log out of your Google Plus prior to using our internet pages. Additional information regarding the collection and use of data by Google, your rights and your options for the protection of your privacy is available in these data protection policies of Google: www.google.com/intl/de/+/policy/+1button.html
