The information about your website use, generated by cookie, is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA where it is stored.

This means that your IP address will be truncated by Google within members of the European Union and other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website activity and internet usage via the website operators.

Google AdWords

We use the online advertising service “Google AdWords” on our website and, in this context, conversion tracking (visitor evaluation). Google Conversion Tracking is an analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie will be placed on your personal computer. These cookies have a limited validity, contain no personal data and are therefore not used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not expired, ourselves and Google may recognize that you have clicked on the ad and have been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Thus, it is not possible that cookies can be tracked through the websites of advertisers.

The information obtained with the help of the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics. This tells us the total number of users who clicked on one of our ads and were redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, we do not receive any information that personally identifies users.
You have the right, for reasons arising from your particular situation, to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you.
You can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting appropriate technical settings of your browser software. We point out, however, that in this case you may not be able to fully use all the functions of this website. You will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
You can also opt out of personalized advertising in Google Ads Settings. For instructions, see

and implementing the opt-out information listed there. For more information and Google’s privacy policy, please visit: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Social media Plug-Ins

The website uses programs – so-called plug-ins – from Tik Tok and Meta.
These are operated from:

  • Meta Inc., 1601 S. California Avenue, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (Facebook)
  • TikTok Technology Limited, 10, Earlsfort Terrace, Dublin, D02 T380, Irland

The plug-ins can be recognized by the corresponding social network logo or the addition of “Like” or “Share”.
In general, the social networks using the social plug-ins capture the IP address of each visitor of a page immediately when visiting the page and logs his/her other activities on the Internet. This happens even if the user does not click on one of the buttons.
If the visitor is already logged into a social network at the same time, sharing on Facebook is done without another window. On Twitter, a pop-up window appears wherein you can still edit the tweet text.
If you are logged in parallel to the social networks (for example, Facebook) while visiting our website, it cannot be ruled out that the provider will assign the visit to your Facebook account. If you use the plug-in functions (for example, clicking the “Like” button, submitting a comment), this information will also be transmitted directly from your browser to the social network and stored there if necessary. The purpose and scope of the data collection and the further processing and use of the data by the networks can be found in the privacy policy:

Third party cookies (Facebook & Instagram)

With your consent, we use the “Facebook pixel” of Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA (“Facebook”) on our website.

The data collected in this way is anonymous for us. This means that we do not see the personal data of individual users. However, this data is stored and processed by Facebook, about which we inform you according to our knowledge.
