- Website from which you are visiting us (referrer URL)
- Website you are visiting

Use of Google Analytics with anonymization function
We use Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as “Google”, on our website. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer and thereby enable your use of the website to be analyzed.
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 an IP anonymization function on our website. In this case, your IP address will be shortened by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area and thereby anonymized.
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 relating to website activity and internet usage. Google may also transfer this information to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on behalf of Google.
According to its own information, Google will in no case associate your IP address with other Google data. You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of our website to their full extent.
Furthermore, Google offers a deactivation option for the most common browsers, which gives you more control over which data is collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about the website visit will be transmitted to Google Analytics. Activation does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to other web analysis services that we may use. Further information on the deactivation option provided by Google as well as on the activation of this option is available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
Use of Google Maps
We use the "Google Maps" component from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter "Google", on our website.
Each time the "Google Maps" component is called up, Google sets a cookie in order to process user settings and data when the page on which the "Google Maps" component is integrated is displayed. As a rule, this cookie is not deleted when you close the browser, but expires after a certain period of time, unless you delete it manually beforehand.
If you do not agree to this processing of your data, you have the option of deactivating the "Google Maps" service and thereby preventing the transmission of data to Google. To do this, you need to deactivate the Java Script function in your browser. However, we would like to point out that in this case you will not be able to use "Google Maps" or only to a limited extent.

Use of Facebook components
We use components from the provider facebook.com on our website. Facebook is a service provided by Facebook Inc., 1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA.
Each time you visit our website, which is equipped with such a component, this component causes the browser you are using to download a corresponding representation of the component from Facebook. Through this process, Facebook is informed which specific page of our website you are currently visiting.
If you call up our site and are logged in to Facebook during this time, Facebook recognizes from the information collected by the component which specific page you are visiting and assigns this information to your personal account on Facebook. For example, if you click on the "Like" button or leave comments, this information will be sent to your personal user account on Facebook and saved there. In addition, the information that you have visited our site is passed on to Facebook. This happens regardless of whether you click on the component or not.
If you want to prevent this transmission and storage of data about you and your behavior on our website by Facebook, you must log out of Facebook before you visit our site. Facebook's data protection information provides more detailed information on this, in particular on the collection and use of data by Facebook, your rights in this regard and the setting options to protect your privacy: https://de-de.facebook.com/about/privacy/

Use of Google Adwords
We also use the Google advertising tool "Google Adwords" to advertise our website. As part of this, we use the "Conversion Tracking" analysis service from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter referred to as "Google", on our website. If you came to our website via a Google ad, a cookie will be placed on your computer. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores and saves on your computer. These so-called "conversion cookies" lose their validity after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If you visit certain pages on our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can recognize that you, as a user, clicked on one of our ads placed on Google and were forwarded to our site.
The information obtained with the help of the "conversion cookies" is used by Google to create visitor statistics for our website. These statistics tell us the total number of users who clicked on our ad and which pages of our website were subsequently accessed by the respective user. However, neither we nor others who advertise via “Google Adwords” receive any information with which users can be personally identified.
You can prevent the installation of the "conversion cookies" by setting your browser accordingly, for example using a browser setting that generally deactivates the automatic setting of cookies or specifically only blocks cookies from the "googleadservices.com" domain.
