4. Cookies & Services

4.1 Integration of services and content of third parties

In individual cases, it may happen that third-party content, such as videos from YouTube, maps from Google Maps, RSS feeds or graphics from other websites are integrated within our online offer. This always assumes that the providers of this content (hereinafter referred to as "third-party providers") are aware of the IP address of the user, because, without the IP address, they could not send the content to the browser of the respective user. The IP address is therefore required to display this content. If possible, we set up the system in such a way that initially only a preview image is displayed on your own web server, and the video is only started or opened after an extra click. We strive to use only such content whose providers use the IP address only for the delivery of the content. However, we have no influence on this if the third-party providers store the IP address, e.g. for statistical purposes. If we are aware of this, we inform the users about it.

4.1.1 YouTube

Videos from the "YouTube" platform may also be integrated into this website. They are offered through Google. You can find the current data protection declaration and opt-out options at:

4.2 Cookies

Cookies are small files that allow specific information related to the device to be stored on the user's access device (PC, smartphone, or similar). On the one hand, they serve the user-friendliness of websites and thus the users (e.g. storage of login data). On the other hand, they are used to collect statistical data on website use and to be able to analyze it for the purpose of improving the offer. Users can influence the use of cookies. Most browsers have an option to restrict or completely prevent cookies from being stored. It is pointed out that the use and especially the convenience of use will be limited without cookies. Depending on their purpose and function, cookies are divided into categories (essential, statistics, marketing). For more information, see the Cookie Consent Tool.

4.3 Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies," which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by cookies about the use of this website by users is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. We have activated the IP anonymization function on this website. This means that your IP address is shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating the use of the website by users, compiling reports on website activity, and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data. Users can prevent the storage of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in their browser software. However, this offer points out to the users that in this case, they may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent. Users can also prevent the collection of data generated by cookies and related to their use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link:

4.4 Google Tag Manager

This website uses the Google Tag Manager service from the provider Google. When you start the Google Tag Manager, your browser connects to Google's servers. This enables Google to know that this website has been accessed via your IP address. The Tag Manager is a service that allows you to manage web page tags from one interface. This allows code snippets such as tracking codes or conversion pixels to be added to websites without interfering with the source code. The data is only forwarded by the Tag Manager, but not collected or stored. The Tag Manager itself is a cookieless domain and does not process any personal data, as it serves purely to manage other services in the online offering. The Tag Manager takes care of resolving other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Tag Manager does not access this data. If deactivation has occurred at the domain or cookie level, this remains in place for all tracking tags implemented with the Tag Manager. You can find out exactly where Google data centers are located here Additional information on data protection can be found on the following Google web pages: Data privacy statement: FAQ Google Tag Manager: Google Tag Manager Terms of Service:
