On our website, we offer the opportunity to subscribe to our newsletter. With this newsletter, we offer information at regular intervals about our offers. To subscribe to our newsletter, we use the so-called double opt-in procedure, i.e. after subscribing, you will receive a confirmation e-mail containing a confirmation link. We store the IP address and the date and time of the registration confirmation in order to be able to prove the subscription was done by you. Your e-mail address will not be disclosed to third parties.

Website analytics with Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Analytics uses cookies in order to analyse web pages with regard to your user behaviour. The information generated by cookies about the use of this website is sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, your IP address is abbreviated prior to the evaluation of the utilisation statistics, meaning that no inferences can be made to your identity. For this purpose, Google Analytics has been expanded on our website by the code “anonymizeIp” to provide for the anonymous capture of IP addresses.

Google will use the information gathered by the cookies to provide us with reports and statistics about the website activities and in order to provide us with further services related to the use of the website and internet usage. Where necessary, Google may also transfer this information to third parties where required to do so by law or where such third parties process this data on behalf of Google.

Google AdWords

Our website uses Google AdWords conversion tracking. This measures the performance of the advertisements provided (so-called Adwords campaigns). By means of the analysis program, Google is able to more accurately assess the performance of the ads placed and both Google and us, as a customer of Google, can increase the quality and relevance of the ads that you see. Google AdWords conversion tracking uses cookies. The information generated by the cookies is sent to a Google server in the USA for evaluation and is stored there. The cookies are normally active on your computer for about 30 days. If you visit our website during this period, both we and Google will be informed that you have seen the provided advertisement.

You may prevent the storage of the cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser. We advise you, however, that in this case, it may not be possible to make full use of all the features of this website.

Google Tag Manager

Our website uses Google Tag Manager, a solution that the marketer can use to monitor website tags via a single interface. The Tag Manager tool itself (that implements the tags) is a cookieless domain, and does not collect any personal data. The tool can result in the triggering of other tags, which could potentially collect personal data from you. Google Tag Manager does not use this data. On a domain level or a cookie level, if a deactivation takes place, this deactivation also applies to all tracking tags that are implemented by Google Tag Manager.

YouTube

Our website also uses YouTube which belongs to Google. When you visit our website containing a YouTube plug-in, a connection to the YouTube servers is established. By this, YouTube is informed which website you visited. Furthermore, in case you are logged on to your YouTube account, YouTube may also associate your surfing behaviour to your personal account. If you wish to avoid data being linked to your YouTube account, please log out from YouTube before visiting our website.
