– 1&1 IONOS WebAnalytics
Via the tracking pixel or the reading of the log file, certain user information is collected in anonymous form, transmitted to 1&1 IONOS and evaluated there. This anonymized information includes, among other things, the IP address of the user, referrer abbreviations of the previously visited websites, the type of device used, the browser type used, the operating system used and the time stamp of access). All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the terminal device used via the tracking pixel, will only be carried out if you inform us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR have given your express consent.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the „Cookie Consent Tool“ provided on the website.
This offer uses the web analysis service Jetpack (formerly WordPress.com-Stats), which is operated by Automattic Inc., 60 29th Street #343, San Francisco, CA 94110-4929, USA, using the tracking technology of Quantcast Inc., 201 3rd St, Floor 2, San Francisco, CA 94103-3153, USA. With the help of Jetpack, pseudonymised visitor data is collected, evaluated and stored. From this data, pseudonymised user profiles can be created and evaluated for the same purpose. Jetpack uses so-called cookies, i.e. small text files that are stored locally in the cache of the Internet browser of the site visitor. These cookies are used, among other things, to recognize the browser and thus enable a more precise determination of statistical data. The data of the IP address of the user are also collected, but they are pseudonymized immediately after collection and before their storage in order to exclude a personal reference. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the pseudonymised IP address) is transmitted to a server in the USA and stored there to safeguard the above-mentioned interests.
All processing described above, in particular the setting of cookies for reading information on the terminal device used, will only be carried out if you inform us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR have given your express consent. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by deactivating this service in the „Cookie Consent Tool“ provided on the website.
Google (Universal) Analytics
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland („Google“). Google (Universal) Analytics uses so-called „cookies“, which are text files that are stored on your device and enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including the shortened IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there, which may also result in transmission to the servers of Google LLC. in the USA.
This website uses Google (Universal) Analytics exclusively with the extension „_anonymizeIp()“, which ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct personal reference. As a result of the extension, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server LLC.in the USA and shortened there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google (Universal) Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Google Analytics also enables the creation of statistics with statements about the age, gender and interests of site visitors via a special function, the so-called „demographic characteristics“, on the basis of an evaluation of interest-based advertising and with the help of third-party information. This allows the definition and differentiation of user groups of the website for the purpose of target-group-optimized orientation of marketing measures. However, records collected via the „demographic characteristics“ cannot be assigned to a specific person.
Details on the processing initiated by Google Analytics and Google’s handling of data from websites can be found here: https://policies.google.com/technologies/partner-sites
All processing described above, in particular the setting of Google Analytics cookies for reading information on the end device used, will only be carried out if you inform us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR have given your express consent. Without this consent, Google Analytics will not be used during your visit to the site.
You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future. To exercise your revocation, please deactivate this service in the „Cookie Consent Tool“ provided on the website.
The „Google Signals“ service may also be used on this website as an extension of Google Analytics. With Google Signals, cross-device reports can be created by Google (so-called „cross device tracking“). If you have activated the „personalized ads“ in your settings in your Google account and you have linked your Internet-enabled devices to your Google account, Google can monitor user behavior with appropriate consent to the use of Google Analytics in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR (see above) and create database models based on this. This takes into account the sign-ins and device types of all site visitors who were signed in to a Google Account and converted. The data shows, among other things, on which device you clicked on an ad for the first time and on which device the associated conversion took place. If Google Signals is used, we do not receive any personal data from Google, but only statistics created on the basis of Google Signals. You have the option of disabling the „personalized ads“ feature in your Google Account settings to turn off cross-device analysis. To do this, follow the instructions on this page: https://support.google.com/ads/answer/2662922?hl=de
Further information can be found here: https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/7532985?hl=de
As an extension of Google Analytics, the „UserIDs“ function can also be used on this website. By assigning individual UserIDs, we can have cross-device reports created by Google (so-called „cross device tracking“). This means that when you give your corresponding consent to the use of Google Analytics, your usage behaviour in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR can also be analyzed across devices if you have set up a personal account through your registration on this website and are logged into your personal account on different devices with your relevant login data. The data collected in this way shows, among other things, on which device you clicked on an ad for the first time and on which device the corresponding conversion took place.
We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics, which obliges Google to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties.
For the transfer of data from the EU to the USA, Google refers to so-called standard data protection clauses of the European Commission, which are intended to ensure compliance with the European level of data protection in the USA.

8) Page functionalities
On this website we use the service „hCaptcha“ of Intuition Machines, Inc., 350 Alabama St, San Francisco, CA 94110, USA.
The service checks whether an input is made by a natural person or abusively by machine and automated processing, and blocks spam, DDoS attacks and similar automated malicious access. HCaptcha ensures, among other things by setting cookies, that an action is carried out by a human and not by an automated bot on the basis of the following data: IP address of the device used, identification data of the browser and operating system type used, date and duration of the visit as well as user behavior, e.g. mouse movements or other queries. The method is used exclusively to ward off spam, DDoS attacks and similar automated malicious access.
All processing described above, in particular the reading of information on the terminal device used, will only be carried out if you inform us in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a GDPR have given your express consent. Without this consent, hCaprcha will not be used during your site visit.
hCaptcha may also transfer your data to the USA. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Intuition Machines, Inc., which obliges the company to protect the data of our site visitors and not to pass it on to third parties.

9.2 Cookie Consent Tool
This website uses a so-called „cookie consent tool“ to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications requiring consent. The „Cookie Consent Tool“ is displayed to users when the page is accessed in the form of an interactive user interface on which consents for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the box. By using the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user gives corresponding consent by ticking the box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the user’s terminal device if consent has been given.
The tool sets technically necessary cookies to store your cookie preferences. Personal user data is generally not processed.
If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in a legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.
A further legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. As the controller, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
We have concluded an order processing contract with the provider, which ensures the protection of the data of our site visitors and prohibits unauthorized disclosure to third parties.
Further information about the operator and the setting options of the cookie consent tool can be found directly in the corresponding user interface on our website.
