In some cases, we may transfer personal data to third countries outside the EU. In each case, we ensure an appropriate level of data protection according to European standards.
In the case of Google Analytics (USA), an appropriate level of data protection is ensured by the corresponding participation in the Privacy Shield Agreement (Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR).

3. Google Analytics
We use Google Analytics to create pseudonymous user profiles for improving and design-ing our website on demand. Google Analytics is operated by Google Ireland Limited, Gor-don House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4. Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your end device and can be read by us. In this way, we are able to recognize and count returning visitors. This data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. f GDPR or § 15 para. 3 TMG and in the interest of finding out how often our website is viewed by different users.
The information generated by the cookies about your use of the website will be transmit-ted to and stored by Google on its servers in the United States. We have activated IP-anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated within the area of Mem-ber States of the European Union. Only in exceptional cases is the whole IP address trans-ferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there (an adequate level of data pro-tection is ensured according to Art. 45 para. 1 GDPR because Google is a participant in the Privacy Shield Agreement). We have also concluded a contract with Google Ireland Limited for commissioned data processing pursuant to Art. 28 GDPR. Accordingly, Google will solely use collected data for the purposes intended, which are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on website activities.
You can withdraw your consent to the processing at any time. Please use one of the follow-ing options:

4. Retargeting Google
If you use our website, you agree to the following data processing:
We use Google Retargeting Technologies
We use Google’s retargeting technologies in order to offer you advertising, on other web-sites, that is tailored to your interests. Data processing is carried out on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 s. 1 lit. a GDPR.
How does remarketing work?
When you visit our website, recognition features of your browser or end device are re-trieved, your IP address is evaluated or a recognition feature is stored as a small text file (e. g. so-called third-party cookie) on your end device. Furthermore, it is possible that Google connects your visit of our website with your usage behavior which is recorded when you visit various websites. The characteristics are designed pseudonymously. If you are logged in with your Google account, these features can be assigned directly to your profile. Google can link and store your visits to our web pages with your features to display target-ed advertising on other Internet sites.
The aforementioned recognition features are pseudonymous and we can use Google to recognize your end device on other internet pages. Your device and your browser will be recognized by Google, e.g. when you visit a page that displays advertisements on Google’s behalf.
We can add to our website so called remarketing tags. We may add keywords to our webpages that contain statements about the content of the website, such as offered prod-ucts. Google receives these keywords which contain neither personal nor sensitive infor-mation. When you visit a page with certain keywords related to products, Google stores them and assigns them to your pseudonymous recognition features. Google can use this link to determine whether and, if so, which of our advertisements will be displayed to you.
We can therefore commission Google to place advertisements on other websites based on the pages you visited. If you visit another website that participates in Google’s display net-work, Google can use recognition features and keywords stored for this purpose to deter-mine whether and, if so, which of our ads should be displayed.
For more information on how Google Remarketing technologies work, visit https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/ads/.
What does cross-device remarketing mean?
If you sign in to Google services with your own credentials or use one or more of your own Google accounts, Google may link the recognition features of different browsers and de-vices. So once Google has created a unique identifier for the laptop, desktop, smartphone or tablet you are using, you can associate those identifiers with one another by using or having used your sign-in information to use a Google service. In this way, Google can also play our advertising campaigns beyond the end device in a targeted manner. However, Google will only do this if you have agreed to this data processing in your dealings with Google.
You Have the Option to Define Advertising Settings
You can object to this form of advertising at any time. To do this, please visit https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922 and deactivate personalized advertising. Please note that these settings may not affect all devices and browsers. Further infor-mation is also available at https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922.
5. Social Media Plugins
For data protection reasons, we do not integrate any social media plugins directly into our website. Therefore, when you access our pages, no data is transferred to social media services such as Facebook, Twitter, XING or Google+. A profiling by third parties is thus excluded.
However, you still have the option of sharing selected pages by clicking on the Facebook, Twitter, XING or Google+ buttons, and you can see how often a page has been shared in the past when you view the post. We use the so-called Shariff solution developed by the German c’t Magazine to offer a data protection compliant alternative to the classic social plug-ins.
What’s behind it? The Shariff solution means that as a first step, all the data and functions required to display Facebook, Twitter, XING or Google+ buttons are provided by our web server. Only when you decide to share a post via the corresponding button and click on it, does a data transfer to the operator of the respective social media service takes place.
6. Automated Decision-making
As a website user you have the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on auto-mated processing, which has a legal effect on you or significantly affects you. The legal ba-sis is Art. 22 GDPR. Automated decision-making may be performed, if it is necessary for en-tering into or for the performance of a contract, a national derogation exists or explicit consent is given. If any of the exceptions apply, we guarantee appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms.
