Some types of data processing are permitted only with your explicit consent. You are entitled to revoke a previously granted consent at any time. Revocation can be issued in the form of an informal email notification. The legality of any data processing that has occurred up to the point of revocation shall remain unaffected.

You are entitled to obtain any data that has been processed automatically by us on the basis of your consent or for the purpose of performing a contract and to have this data transmitted to third parties. The data is to be provided in a machine-readable format. Insofar as you request the direct transfer of data to another data controller, this will only occur to the extent that it is technically feasible.
SSL / TLS encryption
For security reasons and for protecting the transfer of confidential content that you transmit to us in our role as the website operator, our website uses SSL (TLS) encryption.

Some of these cookies are "session cookies", which are deleted of their own accord once your browser session ends. Other cookies remain on your end device until such time as you choose to delete them. This type of cookie helps us recognise you on return visits to the website.
Modern web browsers enable you to monitor, limit or completely prevent the setting of cookies. Many web browsers can be configured such that cookies are deleted automatically when you close the program. Please note that the deactivation of cookies may limit the functionality of the website.
Our website uses some functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses "cookies": small text files that are stored on your end device by your web browser and which enable us to analyse website use. Cookie-generated information about your use of our website will be transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Such servers are generally located in the USA.
The setting of Google Analytics cookies occurs on the basis of Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR. As the operator of the website, we maintain a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour for the purpose of optimising our website and, where applicable, our advertising.
We use Google Analytics in connection with the IP anonymization function, which guarantees that Google will truncate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or other Contracting States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. In exceptional cases, Google may transmit your full IP address to a server in the USA and truncate it there. Google uses this information on our behalf to analyse your use of the website, create reports about website activity and provide other services connected with website and internet use. IP addresses transmitted by Google Analytics are never held in connection with other data collected by Google.
If you wish, you can prevent the setting of cookies by adjusting the settings in your web browser. However, please note that this may limit the functionality of some functions of our website. You can also prevent Google from collecting and processing data regarding your use of the website, including your IP address, by downloading and installing the browser plugin found at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.

Data processing agreements
We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google in order to ensure the complete fulfilment of statutory data protection requirements.
"Demographics and Interests" reporting by Google Analytics
Our website uses the Google Analytics reporting function "Demographics and Interests", which facilitates the creation of reports containing information about the age, sex and interests of visitors to the website. This data originates from Google's personalised (interest-based) advertising and from the visitor data of third party providers. You can deactivate this function at any time by adjusting the advertising settings in your Google account. You can also object in general to the collection of your data by Google Analytics by following the steps outlined in the point "Objecting to data collection".
Google AdWords and Google Conversion Tracking
Our website uses Google AdWords. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States. AdWords is an online advertising service. As part of our use of this service, we work with Google's conversion tracking tool. A conversion tracking cookie is set whenever a user clicks on a Google-provided ad. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your end device by your web browser. Google AdWords cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. The cookie indicates to us and Google that you have clicked on an ad and been referred to our website.
Every Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked across the websites of different Adwords customers. Conversion cookies are used to create conversion statistics for conversion tracking customers. They allow these customers to observe how many users have clicked on their ad and been subsequently referred to pages of their website containing conversion tracking tags. However, AdWords customers do not receive any information that could enable them to personally identify individual users. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to the use of conversion cookies by deactivating the conversion cookie option in your browser settings. If you choose to do, you will also be excluded from conversion tracking statistics.
The storage of "conversion cookies" occurs on the basis of Art.6 (1) lit. f GDPR. As the operator of the website, we maintain a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour for the purpose of optimising our website and advertising.
Modern web browsers enable you to monitor, limit or completely prevent the setting of cookies. However, please note that the deactivation of cookies may limit the functionality of our website.
