    The legal basis for the processing of personal data using technically necessary cookies is KVKK Art. 5/2-f.

    The legal basis for the processing of personal data using functional cookies and cookies for analysis and marketing purposes is KVKK Art. 5/1 along with the analogous provisions in accordance with the applicable data protection legislation.

    Purpose of data processing
    Depending on their intended use and function, we divide cookies into the following categories: 

    a) Technically  necessary cookies
    Technically necessary cookies guarantee functions without which our website cannot be be put to its intended use. These cookies are used exclusively by us, i.e. they are first party cookies. This means that all information stored in the cookies is returned to our website. Technically necessary cookies are used, for example, to ensure that users who have logged in always remain logged in when accessing various sub-pages of our website, and so do not have to re-enter login data every time they access a new page.

    It is possible and permissible to use technically necessary cookies on our website without first obtaining consent. For this reason, individual technically necessary cookies cannot be activated or deactivated. These purposes are also in our legitimate interests in the processing of personal data under KVKK Art. 5/2-f. Our interest in ensuring the unobstructed provision of our website and the services it offers prevails.

    b)    Functional cookies
    Functional cookies enable our website to store information that has already been input (such as registered name, language selection or a user's location) and, on the basis of this information, offer improved and more personalised functions. The way in which these cookies collect and store data ensures that user behaviour on other websites cannot be tracked.

    c)    Performance cookies
    In order to improve the website's attractiveness, content and functionality, performance cookies collect aggregated information about how it is used. These cookies help us to determine whether, how often and how long which website subpages are visited and what content is of particular interest to users. 
    These cookies do not store any information that would allow the user to be identified. The information collected is aggregated, and does not allow us to directly identify the individual. The only purpose it serves is to compile statistics in order to better tailor the content of our website to the needs of our users, to improve user experience, and to optimise our range of services.

    d)    Marketing cookies
    Marketing cookies come from external advertising companies (third party cookies) and are used to collect information about the websites visited by the user, to create targeted advertising for the user, and to display advertisements based on the user's interests. They are also used to limit the frequency with which an advertisement appears, and to measure the effectiveness of advertising campaigns. This information may be shared with third parties, advertisers for instance.

    Storage duration, right to object and right of elimination
    Cookies are stored on the user's computer, from which they are transmitted to our website. As the user, you therefore have complete control over the use of cookies. 
    Even if you have consented to the use of cookies, you can revoke your consent at any time, with future effect. Please use one of the following options to do this:
    •  You can inform us that you wish to withdraw your consent or change your settings in our Cookie Consent Manager, which can be accessed at any time via the website.
    •  You can prevent cookies from being stored by adjusting your browser software accordingly; we would, however, like to draw your attention to the fact that if you do so, this might possibly result in your not being able to use all the functions offered on this website to the full.

  3. E-Mail Communication

    Purposes for which the personal data will be used
    E-mail addresses and the personal data they contain are only processed in order to establish communication.

  5. Web Monitoring

    Purposes for which the personal data will be used
    This website that you are visiting uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). This usage includes the Universal Analytics mode. By enabling the analysis of a user’s activities on different devices, it is possible to associate a user nickname with data, logins and interaction on more than one device.

    It uses cookie data on behalf of the website owner in order to evaluate the use of this website, to compile reports about the website’s activities, and to develop other services for the website owner related to the use of the website and the Internet.

    The goal of using the web analysis service is to analyze the use of the website and to implement regular improvements. The statistics that are gathered makes it possible for us to improve our services and make them more attractive for users.

    To whom and for what purpose personal data may be transferred
    As a rule, information about your use of the website that is created and stored in cookies is transmitted to Google servers in the USA. If IP address anonymization has been activated for this website, Google leaves your IP address at the border of European Union member states and the border of other states that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.

    For exceptions in which personal data is transmitted to the U.S., see the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield at https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework or the Swiss-U.S. Privacy Shield at https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome.

    In the event that you do not disable cookie data, your data over which you have control will be transmitted outside of the country.

    Method and legal basis for collecting personal data
    This website that you are visiting uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). This usage includes the Universal Analytics mode. By enabling the analysis of a user’s activities on different devices, it is possible to associate a user nickname with data, logins and interaction on more than one device.

    Google Analytics uses the cookies stored on your computer and makes it possible to analyze website usage.

    In order to achieve the aforementioned goals, the following data that are relevant to the user are processed:

    (1)      User’s IP address
    (2)      Date and time of access
    (3)      Login data
    (4)      The amount of data transferred
    (5)      The domain name that was queried
    (6)      Type of hardware and its model, brand and screen resolution

    (13)   Search engines, search elements, websites and social networks
    (14)    Promotions and promotion keywords

    Data sent by Google and data related to cookies, user identity verification or advertising identities are deleted after 14 months. According to Google, data that has reached the end of its storage time limit are automatically deleted once per month. We would like to draw attention to the fact that we have no control over how long data is stored by Google.

    You can adjust your browser to prevent cookies from being stored, but disabling cookies may cause you to not be able to take full advantage of all the functionality presented on this website.

    Furthermore, you can prevent Google from obtaining and using data that is created by cookies and related to website usage (including your IP address) by downloading and installing the browser plugin on this link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

    Disabling cookies prevents your data from being obtained when you visit this website. In order to prevent Universal Analytics from obtaining data from multiple devices, you need to activate an exclusion for all systems being used. To disable cookies, click here: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en&text=deaktivate_google_analytics

    This website uses the "_anonymizeIp()" function of Google Analytics. This ensures that IP addresses are used in a truncated fashion, which makes it impossible to track a specific user. If there is a possibility that a direct personal connection would be created to the data that is gathered about you, it is immediately prevented, and personal data is thereby immediately deleted.

    We also use Google Tag Manager. Google Tag Manager is a solution that enables marketers to manage their website tags with a single interface. The Tag Manager tool, which applies tags, is an area that does not involve cookies and does not collect any personal data. The tool triggers other tags that can collect data themselves under certain conditions, but Google Tag Manager does not access that data. If deactivation is carried out at the domain name or cookie level, all tracking tags implemented by Google Tag Manager will remain invalid. You can access more information here: http://www.google.de/tagmanager/use-policy.html

    To disable data collection by Google Tag Manager, click here.
