4. Information about the Processing of Personal Data in connection with Cookies

a) Legal Basis

Where the placement of cookies involves the processing of personal data, the legal basis for processing personal data in connection with strictly necessary cookies is our legitimate interest in the functioning of our website. For the processing of personal data in connection with performance cookies, functional cookies, targeting cookies for marketing purposes, and social media cookies, we obtain your consent via our Privacy Policy Center where required by applicable law. You can revoke your consent at any time with effect for the future by accessing the cookie at our Privacy Policy Center and changing your preferences.

b) Use of Google Analytics

We use the function 'anonymizeIP' (so-called IP-Masking) when using Google Analytics. This means your IP address will be truncated as soon as data is received by Google Analytics, before any storage or processing takes place. Only in exceptional cases will the whole IP address first be transferred to a server in the United States and truncated there.  

During your website visit, the following data will be collected:

  • the pages you call up, your "click behavior"
  • achievement of "website goals" (conversions, e.g., newsletter registrations, downloads)
  • your user behavior (e.g., clicks, time spent, bounce rates)
  • your approximate location (region)
  • your IP address (in abbreviated form)
  • technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g., language settings, screen resolution)
  • your internet provider
  • the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this website)

Google will use this information on our behalf to evaluate your (pseudonymous) use of our website and to compile reports on the activities. 

More information about the contractual arrangements for the processing of personal data with Google can be found at: and Access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out.
