We use this information to make it possible for you to visit our web pages from a technical perspective.

Use of Google Analytics 4
This website uses Google Analytics 4, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland, which enables an analysis of your use of our website.
By default, Google Analytics 4 sets cookies when you visit the website, which are stored as small text modules on your terminal device and collect certain information. The scope of this information also includes your IP address, which is, however, shortened by Google by the last digits in order to exclude a direct personal reference.
The information is transferred to Google servers and processed there. This may also involve transmission to Google LLC, which is based in the USA.
Google uses the information collected on our behalf to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services associated with website and internet use. The IP address transmitted and shortened by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. The data collected in the context of the use of Google Analytics 4 will be stored for a period of two months and then deleted.
All of the processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies on the end device used, only takes place if you have given us your express consent to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Without your consent, Google Analytics 4 will not be used during your visit to the site. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your right of revocation, please deactivate this service via the cookie consent tool provided on the website.
We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google, which ensures the protection of our site visitors' data and prohibits unauthorised disclosure to third parties. For the transfer of data to the USA, Google refers to standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection.
Further legal information on Google Analytics 4, including a copy of the aforementioned standard contractual clauses, can be found at policies.google.com/privacy and at policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites.
Google Analytics 4 uses the special "demographic characteristics" function and can use this to generate statistics that make statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This is done by analysing advertising and information from third-party providers. This allows target groups to be identified for marketing activities. However, the collected data cannot be assigned to a specific person and is deleted after being stored for a period of two months.
Google Tag Manager
We use the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland.
The Google Tag Manager is a tool with the help of which we can integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create user profiles, does not store cookies and does not perform any independent analyses. It only serves to manage and play out the tools integrated via it. However, the Google Tag Manager records your IP address, which may also be transmitted to Google's parent company in the United States.
The use of the Google Tag Manager is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in a quick and uncomplicated integration and management of various tools on his website. Insofar as a corresponding consent has been requested, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO; the consent can be revoked at any time.
We use functions of the social network facebook.com, which is operated by Facebook Inc, 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA. These plugins are recognizable by one of the Facebook logos. When you call up a website that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection with Facebook's servers. By clicking on the button, Facebook receives the information that a user has called up the corresponding page of the offer. If the user is logged into Facebook, Facebook can assign the visit to his Facebook account. If users interact with the plugins, for example by clicking the Like button or posting a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted directly from your browser to Facebook and stored there. If a user is not a member of Facebook, there is still the possibility that Facebook will learn and store his or her IP address. According to Facebook, only an anonymized IP address is stored in Germany.
The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Facebook, as well as the related rights and settings options for protecting the privacy of users , can be found in the privacy notices of Facebook: www.facebook.com/about/privacy/.
If a user is a Facebook member and does not want Facebook to collect data about him or her via this offer and link it to his or her membership data stored on Facebook, he or she must log out of Facebook before visiting the website.
Our website uses plugins from Instagram, which is operated by Instagram LLC., 1601 Willow Road, Menlo Park, CA 94025, USA. The plugins are marked with an Instagram logo, for example in the form of an "Instagram camera". You can find an overview of the Instagram plugins and their appearance here: blog.instagram.com/post/36222022872/introducing-instagram-badges
When you call up one of our pages that contains such a plugin, your browser establishes a direct connection to the servers of Instagram. The content of the plugin is transmitted by Instagram directly to your browser and integrated into the page. Through this integration, Instagram receives the information that your browser has called up the corresponding page of our website, regardless of whether you have an Instagram profile or are currently not logged into Instagram. This information (including your IP address) is transmitted by your browser directly to a server of Instagram in the USA and stored there. If you are logged in to Instagram, Instagram can directly assign your visit to our website to your Instagram account.
If you interact with the plugins, for example, click on the "Instagram" button, this information is also transmitted directly to an Instagram server and stored there. The information is also published on your Instagram account and displayed there to your contacts. For the purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by Instagram, as well as your rights in this regard and setting options for protecting your privacy, please refer to Instagram's data protection information: help.instagram.com/155833707900388/
If you do not want Instagram to directly assign the data collected via our website to your Instagram account, you must log out of Instagram before visiting our website.
We use functions of the LinkedIn network of LinkedIn Corporation, 2029 Stierlin Court, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. We would like to inform you that when you call up our pages that contain functions from LinkedIn, a connection to LinkedIn servers is established. LinkedIn receives information that you have visited our web pages with your IP address.

We point out that we have no knowledge of the content of the transmitted data and its use by LinkedIn. If you do not want this procedure, you must log out of your LinkedIn account beforehand.
