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.

Order processing

We have concluded an order processing contract with Google in order to fully comply with the statutory data protection requirements.

Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics

Our website uses the „demographic characteristics“ function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and visitor data from third-party providers. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. This is possible via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section „Objection to data collection“.

Google Analytics Remarketing/DoubleClick

Our website uses the functions of Google Analytics Remarketing in conjunction with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

The purpose of Google Remarketing is to display interest-based advertising. Google Remarketing enables us to display advertisements via the Google advertising network or on other websites that are tailored to the individual needs and interests of Internet users.

This function makes it possible to link the advertising target groups created with Google Analytics Remarketing with the cross-device functions of Google AdWords and Google DoubleClick. In this way, interest-based, personalized advertising messages that have been adapted to you depending on your previous usage and surfing behavior on one end device (e.g. cell phone) can also be displayed on another of your end devices (e.g. tablet or PC).

If you have given your consent, Google will link your web and app browsing history to your Google account for this purpose. In this way, the same personalized advertising messages can be displayed on every device on which you sign in with your Google account.

To support this feature, Google Analytics collects authenticated user IDs that are temporarily linked to our Google Analytics data to define and create audiences for cross-device advertising.

You can permanently opt-out of cross-device remarketing/targeting by turning off personalized advertising in your Google Account by following this link:

The summary of the data collected in your Google account is based exclusively on your consent, which you can give or revoke at Google (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR). The information collected about users may be transmitted to Google and stored on Google’s servers in the USA. Google is certified for the US-European data protection agreement „Privacy Shield“, which guarantees compliance with the level of data protection applicable in the EU. Further information and the data protection provisions can be found in Google’s privacy policy at:

Google Tag Manager

This website uses Google Tag Manager, a cookie-free domain that does not collect any personal data.

This tool allows „website tags“ (i.e. keywords that are integrated into HTML elements) to be implemented and managed via an interface. By using Google Tag Manager, we can automatically track which button, link or personalized image you have actively clicked on and can then record which content on our website is of particular interest to you.

The tool also triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. Google Tag Manager does not access this data. If you have deactivated it at domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags that are implemented with Google Tag Manager.

The use of Google Tag Manager is in the interest of a comfortable and easy use of our website. The legal basis is your consent in accordance with Art. 25 para. 1 TTDSG in conjunction with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a) GDPR.
