To make our website more attractive to visitors and to render possible the utilisation of certain functions, we make use of so-called “cookies” on various pages. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your device. Some of the cookies we use are deleted after the end of the browser session (so-called “Session Cookies”).

Persistent Cookies are deleted automatically after a predetermined period of time, which may vary depending on the type of cookie.

For cases whereby we cooperate with the aforementioned advertising partners, we shall inform you separately and individually, in the following sections of this statement, on the use of such cookies and on the scope of information that is collected in each respective case.

Please note that you may adjust your browser settings so that you will be informed when cookies are set, and will be able to decide individually whether to accept or reject them, in certain cases or in general.

5) Use of social media: videos

Use of YouTube videos

This website uses the YouTube embedding function to show and play videos from the provider “YouTube”, which is part of Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”).

Within this context, extended data protection mode is used which, according to information furnished by the provider, does not start storing any user information until a video is actually played. When the user starts playing an embedded YouTube video, the provider “YouTube” uses cookies to collect information on the user’s behaviour. According to information furnished by “YouTube”, the purposes of this information include recording of video statistics, enhancement of user-friendliness and the prevention of improper activities. If you are logged into your Google account, your data will be allocated to your account as soon as you click on a video. If you do not want your activities to be allocated to your YouTube profile, you will have to log out prior to activating the button. Google stores your data (even for users who are not logged in) in order to create and evaluate usage profiles. In particular, such evaluation takes place pursuant to Article 6 Subsection 1 Letter f of the EU GDPR on the basis of Google’s legitimate interest in showing personalised advertising, performing market research and/or ensuring that its website is tailored to user requirements. You are entitled to object to the creation of such user profiles. To exercise your right of objection, you will need to contact  YouTube.

Regardless of whether any of the embedded videos are played, a connection with the Google network “DoubleClick” is established whenever YouTube is retrieved, which may trigger further data processing activities outside our scope of influence.

Google LLC, whose registered office is located in the USA, is certified under the US-European data protection agreement “Privacy Shield”, which guarantees compliance with the data protection level applicable in the EU.

6) Web analysis services

Google (Universal) Analytics

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. text files that are stored on your computer and make it possible to analyse of the way you utilise the website. The information generated by the cookies on your utilisation of this website (including the shortened IP address) are usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

This website uses Google Analytics exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”, which ensures anonymisation of the IP address by shortening it, and rules out any possibility of your being identified by means of the information collected. As a result of the extension, your IP address is shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting countries to the agreement in the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the complete IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. In these exceptional cases, such processing will take place pursuant to Article 6 Subsection 1 Letter f of the EU GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in the statistical analysis of user behaviours for optimisation and marketing purposes.

On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, collate reports on website activities and provide us with other services relating to website and Internet utilisation. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with any other data held by Google.

You may prevent the storage of cookies by adjusting the settings in your browser software; however we advise you that, in this event, you may not be able to use the full scope of all the functions of this website. In addition, you are able to prevent the collection/transmission of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of these data by Google; you can do this by downloading and installing the browser plugin that is available at the following link:
