(3) Use of cookies:
a) This website uses the following types of cookies, the scope and function of which is described below:
– Transient cookies (explanation b)
– Persistent cookies (explanation c).
b) Transient cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser.
This includes session cookies in particular. They save a so-called session ID, which allows various requests your browser makes to be allocated to a common session. Your computer can be identified in this way when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted as soon as you log out or close the browser.
c) Persistent cookies are automatically deleted after a set period of time, which can vary depending on the type of cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in your browser’s security settings.

e) We use cookies so that we can identify you each time you visit our website again if you have an account with us. Otherwise you would have to log in again each time you visit our website.
f) The flash cookies used are not logged by your browser but by your flash plugin instead. We also use HTML5 storage objects that are placed on your terminal. These objects save the required data independently of the browser you use and they have an automatic expiry date. If you do not want to allow flash cookie processing, you need to install a suitable add-on, e.g. “Better Privacy” for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash Killer Cookie for Google Chrome. You can refuse the use of HTML5 storage objects by setting your browser to private mode. In addition, we also recommend that you regularly delete or clear your cookies and your browsing history manually.

§ 4 WEB ANALYTICS

(1) Scope of data processing
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”), on our website.
Google analyses your use of our website on our behalf. Among other things we use cookies to do this. You have already read about what cookies are and how to delete them in the “Cookies” section above.
The information collected by Google about how you use this website (e.g. the pages of ours that you visit) is transmitted to a Google server in the USA, where it is stored and analysed and the results are made available to us in anonymised form.
On our website we use the IP anonymisation offered by Google. This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other states which are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transfer. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.
Google has certified to the EU-US Privacy Shield, which secures an adequate level of data protection for data at Google in the USA.

The foregoing purposes provide the basis for our legitimate interest in the data processing by Google Analytics. The legal basis is provided by point (f) of Article 6 (1) of the GDPR.
