Dear website visitor,

for your comfort and security when using our websites, we would like to inform you as to how we handle your data.


Usage data: 

For statistical purposes and to improve the quality of our websites, we store data about each individual access to our sites. This data record consists of

• The page from which the file was requested,
• The name of the file,
• The date and time of the request,
• The volume of data transmitted,
• The access status (file transmitted, file not found),
• The description of the browser type used,
• The IP address of the requesting computer, shortened to the last three digits. 

This data is stored in anonymous form in accordance with the German Telemedia Act (TMG). As a result, it is not possible to create personal user profiles.


Cookies:

We use cookies when you visit our website. Cookies are small files that are stored on a user's hard drive. They enable us to retain information for a specific period of time and to identify the user's computer. We use permanent cookies to deliver better user guidance and individual performance. We also use session cookies, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser. You can change the settings in your browser to accept or reject all cookies, or to notify you each time a cookie is stored. All browsers work differently. If you need assistance with changing the settings for cookies, please refer to your browser's help menu. This gives you a clear insight into how cookies are used.


Tracking tools:

To ensure that our website design meets all possible requirements, we create pseudonymous user profiles using Google Analytics and Google DoubleClick. Google Analytics uses cookies that allow for analysis of your use of the website. The information generated via the cookie about your use of the website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and stored there. Since we have activated IP anonymisation on this website, Google shortens your IP address beforehand within  EU member states or in other countries that are signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US before being shortened there. Google will use this information to analyse your use of the website on our behalf, to produce reports about website activities,  and to provide us with other services related to website and Internet usage.

You can object to the creation of pseudonymous user profiles at any time. You have several options for this:

1.) One option for declining web analysis by Google Analytics is to set an opt-out cookie. This cookie informs Google that it must not save or use your data for web analytics purposes. Please note that, with this solution, web analytics is only deactivated for as long as the opt-out cookie is stored by your browser. If you would like to set an opt-out cookie now, please click here.

2.) You can also prevent cookies being stored in order to create profiles by choosing the appropriate settings in your browser.

3.) Depending on which browser you use, you have the option to install a plug-in that prevents tracking. To do this, please click here and install the available browser plug-in. 

This Internet site uses the Google AdWords conversion tool to anonymously analyse the effectiveness of published advertising (online advertising banners). If you access our websites by clicking on a Reidinger banner that we have commissioned on a third-party website, the advertising banner will store a cookie in your  browser. This cookie only shows us that you accessed our website by clicking on the banner. The cookies expire after 30 days. At no point are we or the conversion provider able to identify you personally. If you do not want to participate in this anonymous analysis, you can change your browser settings to deactivate cookies.
