This website uses Google Analytics, a website analysis service by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are stored on your computer to analyse your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually sent to and stored at a Google server in the U.S.A.
You may prevent the installation of cookies by adjusting the settings of your browser; however, if you do so, you may be unable to use all features of this website. Further, you may prevent the collection of data generated by cookies (including your IP address) and related to the use of these websites, as well as the processing of such data by Google, by downloading and installing the plug-in under the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en
Objection to Data Collection
You may prevent the collection of data by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. In doing so, an Opt-Out-Cookie will be placed which prevents future data collection when visiting our website: Disable Google Analytics
Our website uses plugins from the Google-operated website YouTube. The provider of the website is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA. If you visit one of our websites with an embedded YouTube-plugin, a connection to YouTube servers will be established. Information about which of our websites you have visited will then be transmitted to the YouTube server.
If you are logged on to your YouTube account, you allow YouTube to associate your browsing behaviour with your personal profile. You may prevent this by logging out of YouTube.
Google AdWords and Google conversion tracking
This site uses Google AdWords. AdWords is an online advertising program from Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
As part of Google AdWords, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click an ad delivered by Google, a cookie for conversion tracking is stored on your computer. Cookies are small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the user’s browser. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page.
Each Google AdWords advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an Adwords advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the Adwords advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. The Adwords advertisers can find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and were directed to the page with a conversion tracking tag. The advertisers do not, however, obtain any information that can be used to identify users personally. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse by simply deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

2.1 Personal Data
"Personal data" refers to all information that relates to an identified or identifiable person (Article 4 No. 1 GDPR). Information about an identified person can include their name or email address, for example. However, personal data also includes information where the identity is not immediately apparent but can be determined by combining your own or external information, thus identifying who the person is. For example, a person can be identified through their address or bank details, date of birth, username, IP addresses, and/or location data. Here, all information that allows any inference to a person in any way is relevant.
"Processing" as defined in Article 4 No. 2 GDPR refers to any operation related to personal data. This includes, in particular, collecting, recording, organizing, storing, adapting, changing, retrieving, querying, using, disclosing, transmitting, distributing, or providing in any other form, matching, linking, restricting, deleting, or destroying personal data.
