The information generated by the cookie about your use of our website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. IP anonymization is active in our web service. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of our websites, to compile reports on activities and to provide us with other services related to website and Internet use.

(3) The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is - according to Google - not merged with other data from Google. In addition, we refer to the privacy policy of Google. You can prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and related to its use (including your IP address) and Google from processing this data by downloading and installing a browser plug-in.

If the data are not deleted because they are required for other and legally permissible purposes, their processing will be restricted. This means that the data will be blocked and not processed for other purposes. This applies, for example, to data that must be stored for commercial or tax reasons.

(2) According to legal requirements, the documents shall be stored for six years in accordance with § 257 para. 1 HGB (commercial books, inventories, commercial letters, accounting records, etc.) and for ten years in accordance with § 147 para. 1 AO (books, records, management reports, accounting records, commercial and business letters, documents relevant for taxation, etc.).

(2) We will update the privacy policy from time to time due to the technical progress of our offers. Insofar as the change to the privacy policy does not affect the use of existing data, the new privacy policy shall apply from the date on which it is updated on our website. A change to the privacy policy, which relates to the use of the data already collected, will only take place if it is reasonable for you. In such a case, we will notify you in good time by e-mail, on our websites or in any other form. You have the right to object to the validity of the new privacy policy within four weeks of receipt of the notification. In the event of objection, we reserve the right to terminate the contractual relationship.
