3 SSL and/or TLS encryption
For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption. You can recognise an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the lock icon in the browser line.
If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, the data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

For this purpose, our website is supported by cookies that collect information about your IP address, the time and duration of your visit, the number of visits, the use of forms, your search settings, your display mode and your settings for favourites on our website. The storage period of the cookies varies.
You can prevent cookies from being stored by our internet site at any time by adjusting your internet browser accordingly and thus permanently deactivating the storage of cookies. Furthermore, cookies that have already been stored can be deleted at any time via your internet browser or other software programs. This is possible in all common Internet browsers.

4.3 Google Adsense
This website uses Google AdSense, a service for integrating advertisements from Google.

For uniform representation of fonts, this page uses web fonts provided by Google. When you open a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into your browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose your browser has to establish a direct connection to Google servers. Google thus becomes aware that our web page was accessed via your IP address. The use of Google Web fonts is in the interest of a uniform and attractive presentation of our website. This constitutes a legitimate interest pursuant to art. 6 para. 1 lit. f of the GDPR.
If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font will be used by your computer.
4.5 Google Tag Manager
This website uses the Google Tag Manager provided by Google. This service enables website tags to be managed on an online interface. The Google Tag Manager only implements tags. This means that no cookies are used, and no personal data is collected. The Google Tag Manager triggers other tags, which in turn may collect data. However, the Google Tag Manager does not access this data. In the event that domains or cookies have been disabled, this shall apply to all tracking tags, provided these were implemented with the Google Tag Manager.
