Cookies are used when accessing our website. Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer when you visit this website and help us to analyse how users use our website.

Our website uses features of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of this service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses “cookies”. These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and that allow analysis of website usage. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The servers are typically located in the USA.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Art. 6 para. 1 (f) of the GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour in order to optimise our website and marketing processes.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymisation function. It ensures that Google will truncate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or contracting Member States to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) prior to transmission to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and provide additional services associated with the use of the website and the internet to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.

The data protection regulations of the mailing service provider can be seen here. The Rocket Science Group LLC d/b/a MailChimp is certified under the Privacy Shield Agreement and thus offers a guarantee to comply with the European data protection level.
