Automatically saved data

Server log files

The provider of our websites automatically collects and stores information in so-called server log files, which your browser automatically transmits to us. These are:

  • Name of the requested file

  • Websites from which the user's system accesses our website

  • Websites accessed by the user's system via our website access status (file transferred, file not found, etc.)

  • Web browser used (incl. version) and operating system used

  • Full IP address of the requesting computer

  • Amount of data transferred

This data is not merged with other data sources. The processing takes place in accordance with Article 6 Paragraph 1 Letter f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in improving the stability and functionality of our website.

For reasons of technical security, in particular to prevent attempts to attack our web server, we store this data for a short time. It is not possible for us to draw conclusions about individual persons based on this data. After seven days at the latest, the data is anonymized by shortening the IP address at domain level so that it is no longer possible to establish a link to the individual user. The data is also processed anonymously for statistical purposes; a comparison with other databases or a transfer to third parties, even in excerpts, does not take place. The number of page views is only displayed as part of our server statistics, which we publish every two years in our activity report.

We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google", on our website. Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on your computer and thus enable an analysis of your use of the website.

The information generated by these cookies, such as the time, place and frequency of your website visit, including your IP address, is transmitted to Google in the USA and stored there.

We use Google Analytics with the addition "_gat.anonymizeIp" on our website. In this case, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby made anonymous.

Google will use this information to evaluate your use of our site, to compile reports on website activity for us and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if required to do so by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

According to their own statements, Google will under no circumstances associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; we would like to point out to you however that in this case you can if applicable not use all functions of our website in full.

Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation add-on for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over what data Google collects about the websites you visit. The add-on tells the Google Analytics JavaScript (ga.js) that no information about the website visit should be sent to Google Analytics. However, the deactivation add-on for browsers from Google Analytics does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services we may use. Further information on installing the browser add-on is available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de

If you visit our site via a mobile device (smartphone or tablet), you must click this link instead to prevent future tracking by Google Analytics within this website. This is also possible as an alternative to the browser add-on above. By clicking on the link, an opt-out cookie will be set in your browser, which is only valid for this browser and this domain. If you delete the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted, so you will have to click the link again.

If you have consented to Google linking your web and app browsing history to your Google account and using information from your Google account to personalize ads, Google will use your information along with Google Analytics data to create audience lists for create cross-device remarketing. To do this, Google Analytics first collects your Google-authenticated ID on our website, which is linked to your Google account (i. e. personal data). Google Analytics will then temporarily link your ID to your Google Analytics data in order to optimize our target groups.

If you do not agree to this, you can turn this off by making the appropriate settings in the "My Account" area of your Google account.
