4. Tracking

eTracker

On our Internet pages data for marketing and optimization reasons are being collected and stored using technologies of etracker GmbH (www.etracker.com) . User profiles can be created from these data under a pseudonym. Cookies can be used for this purpose. Cookies are small text files that are saved temporarily by the website visitor's internet browser. Cookies enable the Internet browser to be identified. The data collected using the etracker technology will not be used, without explicit consent of the respective user, to identify the visitors to the website personally, and will not be linked to the data relating to the bearer of the pseudonym. The collection and storage of data using eTracker can be excluded for future visits at any time.

Google-Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files stored on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website (including your IP address) will be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and internet usage. Google will also forward this information on to third parties when legally required to do so, or where the third party concerned has been instructed to process the data on Google's behalf. Google will not associate your IP address with any other data held by Google. You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use the full functionality of this website. By using this website, you declare yourself to be in agreement that the data collected about you is processed by Google in the manner described above, and for the previously defined purpose. In view of the discussion of implementing analysis tools with complete IP addresses we would like to point out that this website uses Google Analytics with the extension "_anonymizeIp()" and therefore the IP addresses are only processed in a shortened format to exclude a direct connection to a specific person. The collection and storage of data using Google Analytics can be excluded for future visits at any time.

Using Google AdWords Conversion Tracking

We use the online advertising program "Google AdWords" including Google AdWords Conversion Tracking, a tool used to analyze website traffic. When you click an ad delivered by a Google ad, a conversion tracking cookie is stored on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days, do not contain personal data and cannot be used for personal identification. If you visit certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, both Google and we recognize that you clicked the ad and proceeded to the selected page. Every Google AdWords advertiser is assigned a different cookie. This prevents tracking of cookies through the websites of different AdWords customers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers, who have decided to activate conversion tracking. Google provides customers with information about the total number of users who clicked on the ad and proceeded to a page marked by a conversion tracking tag. Customers do not receive any information that can personally identify users. You can disable conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the following domain: "Googleadservices.com.”
