Terms used

“Per­so­nal data” means any infor­ma­ti­on rela­ting to an iden­ti­fied or iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son (her­ein­af­ter “data sub­ject”); an iden­ti­fia­ble natu­ral per­son is one who can be iden­ti­fied, direct­ly or indi­rect­ly, in par­ti­cu­lar by refe­rence to an iden­ti­fier such as a name, an iden­ti­fi­ca­ti­on num­ber, loca­ti­on data, an online iden­ti­fier (e.g. coo­kie) or to one or more fac­tors spe­ci­fic to the phy­si­cal, phy­sio­lo­gi­cal, gene­tic, men­tal, eco­no­mic, cul­tu­ral or social iden­ti­ty of that natu­ral person.

“Pro­ces­sing” means any ope­ra­ti­on or set of ope­ra­ti­ons which is per­for­med upon per­so­nal data, whe­ther or not by auto­ma­tic means. The term is broad and covers vir­tual­ly any hand­ling of data.

Con­trol­ler” means the natu­ral or legal per­son, public aut­ho­ri­ty, agen­cy or other body which alo­ne or joint­ly with others deter­mi­nes the pur­po­ses and means of the pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data.

Rele­vant legal basis

In accordance with Art. 13 DSGVO, we inform you of the legal basis for our data pro­ces­sing. If the legal basis is not men­tio­ned in the pri­va­cy state­ment, the fol­lo­wing appli­es: The legal basis for obtai­ning con­sent is Art. 6(1)(a) and Art. 7 DSGVO, the legal basis for pro­ces­sing for the per­for­mance of our ser­vices and imple­men­ta­ti­on of con­trac­tu­al mea­su­res as well as ans­we­ring enqui­ries is Art. 6(1)(b) DSGVO, the legal basis for pro­ces­sing for the per­for­mance of our legal obli­ga­ti­ons is Art. 6(1)© DSGVO, and the legal basis for pro­ces­sing for the pro­tec­tion of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests is Art. 6(1)(f) DSGVO. In the event that vital inte­rests of the data sub­ject or ano­ther natu­ral per­son make pro­ces­sing of per­so­nal data neces­sa­ry, Art. 6 (1) lit. d DSGVO ser­ves as the legal basis.

Coope­ra­ti­on with pro­ces­sors and third parties

If, in the cour­se of our pro­ces­sing, we dis­c­lo­se data to other per­sons and com­pa­nies (order pro­ces­sors or third par­ties), trans­mit it to them or other­wi­se grant them access to the data, this will only be done on the basis of a legal per­mis­si­on (e.g. if a trans­mis­si­on of the data to third par­ties, such as to pay­ment ser­vice pro­vi­ders, is neces­sa­ry for the per­for­mance of the con­tract pur­su­ant to Art. 6 (1) lit. b DSGVO), you have con­sen­ted, a legal obli­ga­ti­on pro­vi­des for this or on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (e.g. when using agents, web hosts, etc.).

If we com­mis­si­on third par­ties with the pro­ces­sing of data on the basis of a so-cal­led “order pro­ces­sing agree­ment”, this is done on the basis of Art. 28 DSGVO.

Trans­fers to third countries

If we pro­cess data in a third coun­try (i.e. out­side the Euro­pean Uni­on (EU) or the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area (EEA)) or do so in the con­text of using third-par­ty ser­vices or dis­clo­sing or trans­fer­ring data to third par­ties, this will only be done if it is done to ful­fil our (pre-)contractual obli­ga­ti­ons, on the basis of your con­sent, due to a legal obli­ga­ti­on or on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests. Sub­ject to legal or con­trac­tu­al per­mis­si­ons, we only pro­cess or allow the pro­ces­sing of data in a third coun­try if the spe­cial requi­re­ments of Art. 44 ff. DSGVO are met. This means that the pro­ces­sing is car­ri­ed out, for exam­p­le, on the basis of spe­cial gua­ran­tees, such as the offi­ci­al­ly reco­g­nis­ed deter­mi­na­ti­on of a level of data pro­tec­tion cor­re­spon­ding to that of the EU (e.g. for the USA through the “Pri­va­cy Shield”) or com­pli­ance with offi­ci­al­ly reco­g­nis­ed spe­cial con­trac­tu­al obli­ga­ti­ons (so-cal­led “stan­dard con­trac­tu­al clauses”).

Coo­kies and right to object to direct marketing

Coo­kies” are small files that are stored on users’ com­pu­ters. Dif­fe­rent infor­ma­ti­on can be stored within the coo­kies. A coo­kie is pri­ma­ri­ly used to store infor­ma­ti­on about a user (or the device on which the coo­kie is stored) during or after his or her visit to an online offer. Tem­po­ra­ry coo­kies, or “ses­si­on coo­kies” or “tran­si­ent coo­kies”, are coo­kies that are dele­ted after a user lea­ves an online offer and clo­ses his or her brow­ser. The con­tent of a shop­ping bas­ket in an online shop or a log­in jam, for exam­p­le, can be stored in such a coo­kie. Coo­kies that remain stored even after the brow­ser is clo­sed are refer­red to as “per­ma­nent” or “per­sis­tent”. For exam­p­le, the log­in sta­tus can be stored if users visit them after seve­ral days. Like­wi­se, the inte­rests of users can be stored in such a coo­kie, which is used for ran­ge mea­su­re­ment or mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses. Third-par­ty coo­kies” are coo­kies that are offe­red by pro­vi­ders other than the respon­si­ble par­ty that ope­ra­tes the online offer (other­wi­se, if they are only its coo­kies, they are refer­red to as “first-par­ty cookies”).

We may use tem­po­ra­ry and per­ma­nent coo­kies and pro­vi­de infor­ma­ti­on about this in our pri­va­cy policy.

If users do not want coo­kies to be stored on their com­pu­ter, they are asked to deac­ti­va­te the cor­re­spon­ding opti­on in the sys­tem set­tings of their brow­ser. Stored coo­kies can be dele­ted in the sys­tem set­tings of the brow­ser. The exclu­si­on of coo­kies can lead to func­tion­al rest­ric­tions of this online offer.

A gene­ral objec­tion to the use of coo­kies used for online mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses can be declared for a lar­ge num­ber of ser­vices, espe­ci­al­ly in the case of track­ing, via the US site or the EU site Fur­ther­mo­re, the sto­rage of coo­kies can be achie­ved by swit­ching them off in the brow­ser set­tings. Plea­se note that you may then not be able to use all the func­tions of this online offer.

Dele­ti­on of data

The data pro­ces­sed by us will be dele­ted or rest­ric­ted in its pro­ces­sing in accordance with Artic­les 17 and 18 DSGVO. Unless express­ly sta­ted within the scope of this data pro­tec­tion decla­ra­ti­on, the data stored by us will be dele­ted as soon as they are no lon­ger requi­red for their inten­ded pur­po­se and the dele­ti­on does not con­flict with any sta­tu­to­ry reten­ti­on obli­ga­ti­ons. If the data is not dele­ted becau­se it is requi­red for other and legal­ly per­mis­si­ble pur­po­ses, its pro­ces­sing will be rest­ric­ted. I.e. the data is blo­cked and not pro­ces­sed for other pur­po­ses. This appli­es, for exam­p­le, to data that must be retai­ned for reasons of com­mer­cial or tax law.

Accor­ding to legal requi­re­ments in Ger­ma­ny, data is stored in par­ti­cu­lar for 6 years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 HGB (com­mer­cial books, invent­ories, ope­ning balan­ces, annu­al finan­cial state­ments, com­mer­cial let­ters, accoun­ting vou­ch­ers, etc.) and for 10 years in accordance with § 147 para. 1 AO (books, records, manage­ment reports, accoun­ting vou­ch­ers, com­mer­cial and busi­ness let­ters, docu­ments rele­vant for taxa­ti­on, etc.).

Accor­ding to legal requi­re­ments in Aus­tria, sto­rage is in par­ti­cu­lar for 7 years pur­su­ant to § 132 para. 1 BAO (accoun­ting records, vouchers/invoices, accounts, receipts, busi­ness papers, state­ment of inco­me and expen­dit­u­re, etc.), for 22 years in con­nec­tion with real pro­per­ty and for 10 years for records in con­nec­tion with elec­tro­ni­cal­ly pro­vi­ded ser­vices, tele­com­mu­ni­ca­ti­ons, radio and tele­vi­si­on ser­vices pro­vi­ded to non-entre­pre­neurs in EU mem­ber sta­tes and for which the Mini-One-Stop-Shop (MOSS) is claimed.

Busi­ness-rela­ted processing

In addi­ti­on, we pro­cess
- Con­tract data (e.g., sub­ject mat­ter of the con­tract, dura­ti­on, cus­to­mer cate­go­ry).
- Pay­ment data (e.g., bank details, pay­ment histo­ry).
of our cus­to­mers, pro­s­pec­ti­ve cus­to­mers and busi­ness part­ners for the pur­po­se of pro­vi­ding con­trac­tu­al ser­vices, ser­vice and cus­to­mer care, mar­ke­ting, adver­ti­sing and mar­ket research.


The hos­ting ser­vices we use are for the pro­vi­si­on of the fol­lo­wing ser­vices: Infra­struc­tu­re and plat­form ser­vices, com­pu­ting capa­ci­ty, sto­rage space and data­ba­se ser­vices, secu­ri­ty ser­vices and tech­ni­cal main­ten­an­ce ser­vices, which we use for the pur­po­se of ope­ra­ting this online offer.

In doing so, we, or our hos­ting pro­vi­der, pro­cess inven­to­ry data, cont­act data, con­tent data, con­tract data, usa­ge data, meta data and com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on data of cus­to­mers, inte­res­ted par­ties and visi­tors of this online offer on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests in an effi­ci­ent and secu­re pro­vi­si­on of this online offer pur­su­ant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO in con­junc­tion with Art. 28 DSGVO (con­clu­si­on of a con­tract). Art. 28 DSGVO (con­clu­si­on of order pro­ces­sing agreement).

Coll­ec­tion of access data and log files

We, or rather our hos­ting pro­vi­der, coll­ect on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests within the mea­ning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO, we or our hos­ting pro­vi­der coll­ect data about each access to the ser­ver on which this ser­vice is loca­ted (so-cal­led ser­ver log files). The access data includes the name of the web­site acces­sed, file, date and time of access, amount of data trans­fer­red, noti­fi­ca­ti­on of suc­cessful access, brow­ser type and ver­si­on, the user’s ope­ra­ting sys­tem, refer­rer URL (the pre­vious­ly visi­ted page), IP address and the reques­t­ing provider.

Log file infor­ma­ti­on is stored for secu­ri­ty reasons (e.g. for the cla­ri­fi­ca­ti­on of abu­se or fraud) for a maxi­mum of 7 days and then dele­ted. Data who­se fur­ther sto­rage is requi­red for evi­den­tia­ry pur­po­ses is exempt from dele­ti­on until the respec­ti­ve inci­dent is final­ly clarified.

Pro­vi­si­on of con­trac­tu­al services

We pro­cess inven­to­ry data (e.g., names and addres­ses as well as cont­act data of users), con­trac­tu­al data (e.g., ser­vices used, names of cont­act per­sons, pay­ment infor­ma­ti­on) for the pur­po­se of ful­fil­ling our con­trac­tu­al obli­ga­ti­ons and ser­vices pur­su­ant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit b. DSGVO. The ent­ries mark­ed as man­da­to­ry in online forms are requi­red for the con­clu­si­on of the contract.

When using our online ser­vices, we store the IP address and the time of the respec­ti­ve user action. The sto­rage is based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests as well as tho­se of the users in pro­tec­tion against misu­se and other unaut­ho­ri­sed use. As a mat­ter of prin­ci­ple, this data is not pas­sed on to third par­ties unless it is neces­sa­ry to pur­sue our claims or the­re is a legal obli­ga­ti­on to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO.

We pro­cess usa­ge data (e.g. the web pages visi­ted on our online offer, inte­rest in our pro­ducts) and con­tent data (e.g. ent­ries in the cont­act form or user pro­fi­le) for adver­ti­sing pur­po­ses in a user pro­fi­le, e.g. in order to dis­play pro­duct infor­ma­ti­on to users based on the ser­vices they have used to date.

The dele­ti­on of the data takes place after the expiry of legal war­ran­ty and com­pa­ra­ble obli­ga­ti­ons, the neces­si­ty of kee­ping the data is review­ed every three years; in the case of legal archi­ving obli­ga­ti­ons, the dele­ti­on takes place after their expiry. Infor­ma­ti­on in any cus­to­mer account shall remain until it is deleted.

Admi­nis­tra­ti­on, finan­cial accoun­ting, office orga­ni­sa­ti­on, cont­act management

We pro­cess data within the scope of admi­nis­tra­ti­ve tasks as well as orga­ni­sa­ti­on of our busi­ness, finan­cial accoun­ting and com­pli­ance with legal obli­ga­ti­ons, such as archi­ving. In doing so, we pro­cess the same data that we pro­cess in the con­text of pro­vi­ding our con­trac­tu­al ser­vices. The pro­ces­sing bases are Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c. DSGVO, Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f., Art. 28 DSGVO. The data sub­jects affec­ted by the pro­ces­sing are: cus­to­mers, inte­res­ted par­ties, busi­ness part­ners and web­site visi­tors. The pur­po­se and our inte­rest in the pro­ces­sing lies in the admi­nis­tra­ti­on, finan­cial accoun­ting, office orga­ni­sa­ti­on, archi­ving of data, i.e. tasks that ser­ve the main­ten­an­ce of our busi­ness acti­vi­ties, per­for­mance of our tasks and pro­vi­si­on of our ser­vices. The dele­ti­on of data with regard to con­trac­tu­al ser­vices and con­trac­tu­al com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on cor­re­sponds to the infor­ma­ti­on men­tio­ned in the­se pro­ces­sing activities.

In this con­text, we dis­c­lo­se or trans­mit data to the tax aut­ho­ri­ties, con­sul­tants such as tax advi­sors or audi­tors as well as other fee offices and pay­ment ser­vice providers.

Fur­ther­mo­re, we store infor­ma­ti­on on sup­pli­ers, orga­nisers and other busi­ness part­ners on the basis of our busi­ness inte­rests, e.g. for the pur­po­se of cont­ac­ting them at a later date. This data, most of which is com­pa­ny-rela­ted, is stored permanently.

Busi­ness ana­ly­ses and mar­ket research

In order to run our busi­ness eco­no­mic­al­ly and to be able to reco­g­ni­se mar­ket trends, cus­to­mer and user wis­hes, we ana­ly­se the data we have on busi­ness tran­sac­tions, con­tracts, enqui­ries, etc. We pro­cess inven­to­ry data, com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on data and mar­ket rese­arch data. In doing so, we pro­cess inven­to­ry data, com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on data, con­tract data, pay­ment data, usa­ge data, meta­da­ta on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO, wher­eby the data sub­jects include cus­to­mers, inte­res­ted par­ties, busi­ness part­ners, visi­tors and users of the online offer.

The ana­ly­ses are car­ri­ed out for the pur­po­se of busi­ness eva­lua­tions, mar­ke­ting and mar­ket rese­arch. In doing so, we may take into account the pro­files of regis­tered users with details of, for exam­p­le, their purcha­se tran­sac­tions. The ana­ly­ses ser­ve us to increase user-fri­end­li­ne­ss, to opti­mi­se our offer and to impro­ve busi­ness manage­ment. The ana­ly­ses ser­ve us alo­ne and are not dis­c­lo­sed extern­al­ly, unless they are anony­mous ana­ly­ses with sum­ma­ri­sed values.

If the­se ana­ly­ses or pro­files are per­so­nal, they are dele­ted or anony­mi­sed when the user ter­mi­na­tes the con­tract, other­wi­se after two years from the con­clu­si­on of the con­tract. In all other cases, the over­all eco­no­mic ana­ly­ses and gene­ral ten­den­cy ana­ly­ses shall be pre­pared anony­mously whe­re­ver possible.

Regis­tra­ti­on function

Users can optio­nal­ly crea­te a user account. As part of the regis­tra­ti­on pro­cess, users are pro­vi­ded with the requi­red man­da­to­ry infor­ma­ti­on. The data ente­red during regis­tra­ti­on is used for the pur­po­se of using the offer. Users may be infor­med by e‑mail about infor­ma­ti­on rele­vant to the offer or regis­tra­ti­on, such as chan­ges to the scope of the offer or tech­ni­cal cir­cum­s­tances. If users have can­cel­led their user account, their data rela­ting to the user account will be dele­ted, sub­ject to their reten­ti­on being neces­sa­ry for reasons of com­mer­cial or tax law in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. It is the respon­si­bi­li­ty of the users to save their data in the event of ter­mi­na­ti­on befo­re the end of the con­tract. We are entit­led to irre­trie­v­a­b­ly dele­te all user data stored during the term of the contract.

Within the scope of the use of our regis­tra­ti­on and log­in func­tions as well as the use of the user account, we store the IP address and the time of the respec­ti­ve user action. The sto­rage is based on our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests as well as tho­se of the users in pro­tec­tion against misu­se and other unaut­ho­ri­sed use. As a mat­ter of prin­ci­ple, this data is not pas­sed on to third par­ties unless it is neces­sa­ry for the pur­su­it of our claims or the­re is a legal obli­ga­ti­on to do so in accordance with Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. The IP addres­ses are anony­mi­sed or dele­ted after 7 days at the latest.

Cont­ac­ting us

When cont­ac­ting us (e.g. by cont­act form, e‑mail, tele­pho­ne or via social media), the user’s details are pro­ces­sed for the pur­po­se of hand­ling the cont­act request and its pro­ces­sing pur­su­ant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b) DSGVO. The user’s details may be stored in a cus­to­mer rela­ti­onship manage­ment sys­tem (“CRM sys­tem”) or com­pa­ra­ble enquiry organisation.

We dele­te the enqui­ries if they are no lon­ger neces­sa­ry. We review the neces­si­ty every two years; Fur­ther­mo­re, the legal archi­ving obli­ga­ti­ons apply.

Comm­ents and contributions

When users lea­ve comm­ents or other con­tri­bu­ti­ons, their IP addres­ses are stored for 7 days on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests as defi­ned in Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO are stored for 7 days. This is done for our secu­ri­ty in case someone lea­ves unlawful con­tent in comm­ents and posts (insults, pro­hi­bi­ted poli­ti­cal pro­pa­gan­da, etc.). In this case, we our­sel­ves can be pro­se­cu­ted for the com­ment or post and are the­r­e­fo­re inte­res­ted in the iden­ti­ty of the author.

Com­ment subscriptions

Fol­low-up comm­ents can be sub­scri­bed to by users with their con­sent pur­su­ant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO. Users will recei­ve a con­fir­ma­ti­on email to veri­fy that they are the owner of the email address ente­red. Users can unsub­scri­be from ongo­ing com­ment sub­scrip­ti­ons at any time. The con­fir­ma­ti­on email will con­tain ins­truc­tions on how to unsubscribe.

Goog­le Analytics

On the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (i.e. inte­rest in the ana­ly­sis, opti­mi­sa­ti­on and eco­no­mic ope­ra­ti­on of our online offer within the mea­ning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) Goog­le Ana­ly­tics, a web ana­ly­tics ser­vice pro­vi­ded by Goog­le LLC (“Goog­le”). Goog­le uses coo­kies. The infor­ma­ti­on gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie about the use of the online offer by the users is usual­ly trans­mit­ted to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and stored there.

Goog­le is cer­ti­fied under the Pri­va­cy Shield agree­ment and ther­eby offers a gua­ran­tee of com­pli­ance with Euro­pean data pro­tec­tion law (

Goog­le will use this infor­ma­ti­on on our behalf for the pur­po­se of eva­lua­ting your use of our web­site, com­pi­ling reports on web­site acti­vi­ty for web­site ope­ra­tors and pro­vi­ding other ser­vices rela­ting to web­site acti­vi­ty and inter­net usa­ge. In doing so, pseud­ony­mous user pro­files can be crea­ted from the pro­ces­sed data.

We only use Goog­le Ana­ly­tics with IP anony­mi­sa­ti­on acti­va­ted. This means that the IP address of the user is shor­ten­ed by Goog­le within mem­ber sta­tes of the Euro­pean Uni­on or in other con­trac­ting sta­tes of the Agree­ment on the Euro­pean Eco­no­mic Area. Only in excep­tio­nal cases will the full IP address be trans­mit­ted to a Goog­le ser­ver in the USA and shor­ten­ed there.

The IP address trans­mit­ted by the user’s brow­ser will not be mer­ged with other data from Goog­le. Users can pre­vent the sto­rage of coo­kies by set­ting their brow­ser soft­ware accor­din­gly; users can also pre­vent the coll­ec­tion of the data gene­ra­ted by the coo­kie and rela­ted to their use of the online offer to Goog­le as well as the pro­ces­sing of this data by Goog­le by down­loa­ding and instal­ling the brow­ser plug­in available under the fol­lo­wing link:

Use of script libra­ri­es (Goog­le Web Fonts)

In order to dis­play our con­tent cor­rect­ly and in a gra­phi­cal­ly appe­al­ing man­ner across brow­sers, we use script libra­ri­es and font libra­ri­es such as Goog­le Web Fonts ( on this web­site. Goog­le Web Fonts are trans­fer­red to your brow­ser­’s cache to avo­id mul­ti­ple loa­ding. If the brow­ser does not sup­port Goog­le Web Fonts or pre­vents access, con­tent will be dis­play­ed in a stan­dard font.

Cal­ling up script libra­ri­es or font libra­ri­es auto­ma­ti­cal­ly trig­gers a con­nec­tion to the ope­ra­tor of the libra­ry. It is theo­re­ti­cal­ly pos­si­ble — alt­hough it is curr­ent­ly unclear whe­ther and, if so, for what pur­po­ses — that the ope­ra­tors of such libra­ri­es coll­ect data.

Online pre­sen­ces within social media

We main­tain online pre­sen­ces within social net­works and plat­forms in order to be able to com­mu­ni­ca­te with the cus­to­mers, inte­res­ted par­ties and users acti­ve the­re and to inform them about our ser­vices the­re. When cal­ling up the respec­ti­ve net­works and plat­forms, the terms and con­di­ti­ons and data pro­ces­sing gui­de­lines of their respec­ti­ve ope­ra­tors apply.

Unless other­wi­se sta­ted in our pri­va­cy poli­cy, we pro­cess the data of users if they com­mu­ni­ca­te with us within the social net­works and plat­forms, e.g. wri­te posts on our online pre­sen­ces or send us messages.

Inte­gra­ti­on of third-par­ty ser­vices and content

Within our online offer, we use con­tent or ser­vice pro­vi­ders on the basis of our legi­ti­ma­te inte­rests (i.e. inte­rest in the ana­ly­sis, opti­mi­sa­ti­on and eco­no­mic ope­ra­ti­on of our online offer within the mea­ning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. DSGVO) to inte­gra­te con­tent or ser­vices offe­red by third-par­ty pro­vi­ders, such as vide­os or fonts (her­ein­af­ter uni­form­ly refer­red to as “con­tent”).

This always requi­res that the third-par­ty pro­vi­ders of this con­tent are awa­re of the IP address of the user, as wit­hout the IP address they would not be able to send the con­tent to their brow­ser. The IP address is the­r­e­fo­re neces­sa­ry for the dis­play of this con­tent. We endea­vour to only use con­tent who­se respec­ti­ve pro­vi­ders only use the IP address to deli­ver the con­tent. Third-par­ty pro­vi­ders may also use so-cal­led pixel tags (invi­si­ble gra­phics, also known as “web bea­cons”) for sta­tis­ti­cal or mar­ke­ting pur­po­ses. The “pixel tags” can be used to eva­lua­te infor­ma­ti­on such as visi­tor traf­fic on the pages of this web­site. The pseud­ony­mous infor­ma­ti­on may also be stored in coo­kies on the user’s device and may con­tain, among other things, tech­ni­cal infor­ma­ti­on about the brow­ser and ope­ra­ting sys­tem, refer­ring web­sites, time of visit and other infor­ma­ti­on about the use of our web­site, as well as being lin­ked to such infor­ma­ti­on from other sources.
