In addition, the status and volume of data transmitted as part of this enquiry are recorded. We also collect product and version information on the browser used and the operating system of your computer. In addition, we record from which website our site was accessed. The IP address of your computer is only saved in shortened form for the time you are using the website and is then deleted immediately, unless you have expressly permitted the saving of the unshortened IP address. The remaining data is saved for a limited period of time. We use this data for the operation of our website, in particular to detect and eliminate errors in the website, to determine website use and to make adjustments or improvements.

3.2 Under certain circumstances, we also collect information about your use of our website through the use of so-called browser cookies. These are small text files saved on your data carrier, which save specific settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. A cookie usually contains the name of the domain from which the cookie data was sent, as well as information on the age of the cookie and an alphanumeric identifier. Cookies allow our systems to recognise the device of the user and make any available presettings available immediately. As soon as a user accesses the platform, a cookie is transferred to the hard disk of the computer of the appropriate user. Cookies help us to improve our website and to offer you a better, more tailor-made service. They allow us to recognise your computer again when you return to our website and thus:

– To save information on your preferred activities on the website and thus align our website to your individual interests. For example, this contains adverts corresponding to your personal interests;

– To accelerate the speed at which your enquiries are processed.

3.3 The cookies we use only save the above-mentioned data about your use of the website. This is not done through assignment to you as a person but through assignment of an identification number to the cookie ("Cookie ID"). There is no combination of the cookie ID with your name, your IP address or similar data, which would allow the cookie to be assigned to you.

3.4 This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. ("Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text data that is saved on your computer enabling the analysis of your use of the website. The information about your use of our website generated by the cookie is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and saved there. However, should IP anonymisation be activated on this website, then Google will shorten your IP address within the member states of the European Union or in other states which are members of 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. Google will, at the behest of the operator of this website, use this information to evaluate your use of the website to produce reports concerning website activities for the website operator and to produce additional services associated with the use of the Internet and website. The IP address transferred in the context of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data by Google. You can prevent the saving of the cookies via a special setting of your browser software; however, in that case, please be aware that you might not be able to use all the functions of this website to their full extent. In addition, you can prevent collection of the data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google, as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser link available at the following location (

You can prevent collection by Google Analytics by clicking the following link. An opt-out cookie is set, which prevents future collection of your data when you visit this website: Deactivate Google Analytics.

You can find more information on the conditions of use and data protection at and at We would like to point out that, on this website, Google Analytics has been supplemented with the code "gat._anonymizeIp();", in order to ensure anonymous collection of IP address (so-called IP masking).

When using Google Analytics, we also use the functions of Universal Analytics. Universal Analytics allow us to analyse the activities on our pages across multiple devices (e.g. for access from a laptop and later from a tablet). This is done by the assignment of a user ID to a user as a pseudonym. Such an assignment occurs, for example, when you register for a customer account or log into your customer account. However, no personal data is forwarded to Google. Even if Universal Analytics add additional functions to Google Analytics, this does not mean that there is a restriction of data protection measures, such as IP masking or the browser add-on.
