Our service providers may only use the data thus transferred for the completion of their task. Any other use of the information is prohibited and none of the service providers entrusted by us engage in such activities.

3. Inclusion of third-party services

We use the services of YouTube for playing videos. Our videos have been embedded in expanded data protection mode. This may not be the case with third-party provider videos to which we refer.

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses cookies, which are text files that are stored on your computer that make it possible to analyse your use of the website. The information created by the cookie on your use of this website is usually transferred and stored on a Google server in the USA. If IP anonymisation has been activated on this website, however, Google first abbreviates your IP address within member states of the European Union and in other contractual states of the European Economic Area Agreement. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional circumstances. As requested by the operator of this website, Google uses this information for analysing your use of this website, compiling website activity reports and providing further services relating to the use of the website and internet for the website operator. The IP address transferred by your browsers within the scope of Google Analytics is not compiled with other Google data. You can block cookies by adjusting your browser accordingly. However, we would like to point out that doing so may result in you not being able to fully use all of the functions on this website. You can also prevent the collection of the data created by the cookie relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser plug-in available by following this link (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de). We use Google Analytics for analysing and regularly improving the use of our website. The statistics obtained enable us to improve our content and make it even more interesting for you, the user. For exceptional circumstances, where personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has committed to comply with the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Please note that on this website, the "anonymizeIp" code has been added to Google Analytics to ensure that IP addresses are recorded in anonymised form (IP masking).

We also use the online advertising programme "Google AdWords" and conversion tracking within its scope. The conversion tracking cookie is installed when a user clicks on an advert run by Google. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer system. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification purposes. If a user visits certain pages of this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can see that the user had clicked on the advert and was transferred to this page. Each Google AdWords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies therefore cannot be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information obtained through the conversion cookie serves to create conversion statistics for AdWords customers that have decided to use conversion tracking. The customers are provided with the total number of users that clicked on their advert and were transferred to a page containing a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that could be used for personally identifying users. If you do not wish to participate in tracing, you can easily object to this type of use by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie in the user settings of your browser. Once deactivated, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics. For further information on the Google privacy policy, go to: https://www.google.de/policies/privacy/.
