The information about your use of our website which is created by the cookie is generally transferred to a server owned by Google in USA and stored. The activation of the IP-anonymization on this website leads to a cut of the IP-address by Google but within the member states of the European Union or other contractual states of the convention of the European Economic Region. The full IP-address is transferred only in exceptional cases to a server owned by Google in USA and cut there. By order of the website provider Google will use this information to evaluate your user behaviour on our website for the creation of reports about website activities and to enable further service to the website provider in respect to website utilization and internet utilization of connected services.

§ 11 Use of Remarketing

This technique allows us to appeal to those internet users who have already shown interest in our products again with advertisement on websites of our partners. We are convinced that the flash of a personalized and interest-related advertisement is generally more interesting for the internet user than promotion without such a personal reference.
(2) This website uses so-called „remarketing-tags“. Visiting a page on this website including a „remarketing-tag“ will lead to the positioning of a cookie on the computer of the user by a provider of online advertisement (e.g. Google) and to an allocation to suitable remarketing-target group lists. This cookie serves also in future to switch remarketing campaigns (interest-related advertisement) on other websites.
(3) Flashing these advertising media on the pages of our partners happens also on the basis of a cookie-technology and an analysis of former user behaviour.
