Collection of general information when you visit our website
When you access our pages, general information is automatically collected. This information includes, for example, the type of web browser, the operating system used, the domain name of your Internet service provider and the like. This is only information that does not allow any conclusions to be drawn about your person.
This information is technically necessary for the correct delivery of content requested by you from websites and is mandatory when using the Internet. In particular, they shall be processed for the following purposes:
The processing of your personal data is based on our legitimate interest in the aforementioned purposes of data collection. We do not use your data to draw conclusions about your person.

Use of Google Analytics
The purposes of data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. On the basis of the use of the website and the Internet, further connected services are to be provided. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
In addition or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our pages by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent Google Analytics from collecting cookies for this website and for this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
In the case of digital offers, so-called social plugins may be used by the social networks Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Xing. These features allow you to share or recommend content with your friends on social networks.
When using these social plugins such as Facebook Like-Button, LinkedIn, Twitter or Xing, personal data can be collected from the respective social network as described below.
If you call up a digital offer in which a social plugin is integrated, the social network immediately establishes a direct connection with your browser. This gives the social network, among other things, the information that you have visited this website with your IP address / device ID. This happens regardless of whether you are currently logged in to the social network or registered at all.
If you are logged in to the respective social network at the same time, the social network automatically assigns your page request to your profile. Even if you activate the respective social plugins and, for example, recommend articles and content, the social network can assign this information to your profile. If you do not wish the social network to assign your visit to our web-sites to your respective user account, log out of the respective network when using our digital services.
We would like to point out that the data collected in connection with the social plugins is only exchanged between your browser and the operator of the social networks. We have no knowledge of the content of the collected and provided data. Against this background, we recommend that you read the current data protection information of the social network operators listed below.
We reserve the right to adapt this data protection declaration so that it always corresponds to the current legal requirements or to implement changes to our services in the data protection declaration, e.g. when introducing new services. Your renewed visit will then be subject to the new data protection declaration.
