Web tracking

Our website uses counting pixel technology from wiredminds GmbH (www.wiredminds.de) for analysing visitor behaviour. This is done on the basis of our legitimate interests, that is, interest in the analysis, optimisation and economical operation of our website within the meaning of Article 6 Paragraph 1 (e) GDPR).

Data may be collected, processed and stored from which usage profiles are created under a pseudonym. These usage profiles are completely anonymised where possible and where it makes sense to do so. Cookies may be used for this. Cookies are small text files that are stored in the visitor’s Internet browser and are used for recognising the Internet browser. The data that is collected, which may also include personal data, is transmitted to wiredminds or else collected directly by wiredminds. wiredminds may use information that is left behind by visits to the website for creating anonymised usage profiles. The data that is obtained in this way is not used to identify the visitor to this website personally, and is not merged with personal data about the bearer of the pseudonym without the explicit consent of the person concerned. If IP addresses are recorded, they are anonymised immediately by deleting the last number block.

You may object to the collection and use of the data relating to your visit and thereby prevent website tracking. This function is cookie-based and is therefore browser-dependent.
