We have taken numerous technical and organisational steps to ensure that the personal data processed through this website are protected to the maximum extent possible. Nevertheless, Internet-based data transmissions can have security gaps, so that absolute protection cannot be guaranteed.

3. Recipients / Categories of recipients
We do not operate the web server on which our website runs ourselves but through the company:
Host Europe GmbH
51149 Cologne, Germany
Due to technical circumstances, it cannot be excluded that employees of this web hoster, for example, access the data.
Furthermore, the company tac office marketing, which designs and programs this website, also has access to the web server and, if necessary, to the data stored by you. In order to prevent these companies from accessing your data in an unauthorised manner, we have taken the necessary measures to preclude any illegal access.
In addition, we use tools provided by third parties (e.g., Google) who also collect and process personal data accordingly. This is described as follows:
4. Third-party analysis tools, plug-ins and tools
Cookies / Google-AdWords / Google Maps / MATOMO
Many cookies contain a so-called cookie ID. A cookie ID is a unique identifier of the cookie. It consists of a character string through which Internet pages and servers can be assigned to the specific Internet browser in which the cookie was stored. This enables the visited Internet pages and servers to distinguish the individual browser of the data subject from other Internet browsers that contain other cookies. A specific Internet browser can be recognised and identified by its unique cookie ID.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been set can be deleted at any time via an Internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all popular Internet browsers. Please note that if you disable cookies, you may be unable to use all the features of this website properly.
4.2 Use and application of Google AdWords
The data controller has integrated Google AdWords on this website. Google AdWords is an Internet advertising service that allows advertisers to place ads in both Google’s search engine results and the Google Advertising Network. Google AdWords allows an advertiser to pre-define certain keywords to display an ad in Google’s search engine results only when the user uses the search engine to retrieve a keyword-relevant search result. On the Google Network, ads are distributed to the relevant websites using an automatic algorithm and using the previously defined keywords.
The operator of Google AdWords services is Google Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.
The purpose of Google AdWords is to advertise our website by displaying interest-related advertising on the websites of third parties and in the search engine results of the Google search engine and by displaying third-party advertising on this website.
If a data subject reaches our website via a Google ad, a so-called conversion cookie is stored on the information technology system of the data subject by Google. The term ‘cookie’ has already been defined elsewhere in this document. These so-called ‘conversion cookies’ cease to be active after 30 days and are not used to identify you personally. If the cookie has not yet expired, the conversion cookie is used to determine whether certain sub-pages, such as the shopping basket of an online shop system, have been called up on this website. The conversion cookie enables both us and Google to track whether a person who has accessed our website via an AdWords ad has generated revenue, i.e. has completed or cancelled a purchase of goods.
The data and information collected through the use of the conversion cookie is used by Google to generate visit statistics for our website. We use these visit statistics to determine the total number of users who have been referred to us via AdWords ads, i.e. to determine the success or failure of the respective AdWords ad and to optimise our AdWords ads for the future. Neither our company nor other Google AdWords advertisers receive information from Google that could identify a data subject.
The conversion cookie is used to store personal information, such as the websites visited by the data subject. Personal data, including the IP address of the Internet connection used by the data subject, is therefore transferred to Google in the United States of America each time he or she visits this Internet page. The personal data is stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may disclose the personal data collected through the technical process to third parties.
The data subject may, at any time, prevent the setting of cookies through our website by means of a corresponding setting of the Internet browser used, and may thus permanently deny the setting of cookies. Such a setting of the Internet browser used would also prevent Google from setting a conversion cookie on the information technology system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google AdWords can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.
Furthermore, the data subject has the possibility to object to interest-based advertising by Google. To do this, the data subject must access the www.google.de/settings/ads link from each of the Internet browsers they use and configure the required settings there.
4.3 Usage and application of Google Maps
This website uses the Google Maps map service via an API. The provider is Google Inc. 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. It is necessary to save your IP address to be able to use the Google Maps features. This information is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The provider of this website has no influence on the data transfer.
4.4 Use of the MATOMO analysis tool
If you do not agree to the storage and evaluation of this data obtained from your visit, then you can object to the subsequent storage and usage of the data at any time by a mouse click. In this case, an opt-out cookie is stored in your browser, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data. Caution: If you delete your cookies, the opt-out cookie will also be deleted and you may have to enable it again.
Disabling complete! Your visits to this website are no longer recorded by the Web analysis.
Please note that the Matomo disabling cookie of this website will also be deleted if you remove the cookies stored in your browser. In addition, if you are using a different computer or Web browser, you must repeat the disabling procedure.
