5.1. Automated processing of data
When using the areas of our website that are publicly accessible without prior registration and authentication (“logging in”), each access and each retrieval of a file deposited on the website is logged by the server on which our website is located. The storage serves internal system-related and statistical purposes, e.g. to better tailor the website to customer needs. The following are logged: Name of the retrieved file, date and time of retrieval, amount of data transferred, notification of successful retrieval, web browser, operating system and requesting domain. In addition, the IP addresses of the requesting computers and the Internet pages from which you visit us are logged. We are not able to assign this data to specific persons. This data is not merged with other data sources. The data is deleted after its statistical evaluation and is not passed on to third parties.
The legal basis for the processing of IP addresses is Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest follows from the purposes of data collection listed above
Most browsers automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or that a notice always appears before a cookie is created. However, the complete deactivation of cookies may mean that you cannot use all the functions of our website. The storage period for cookies depends on your intended use and is not the same for all.
5.3. Google Analytics & Google Fonts
For the purpose of demand-oriented design and continuous optimization of our pages, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”), on the basis of Article 6(1)(f) GDPR. In this context, pseudonymized usage profiles are created and cookies are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website, such as the

- operating system used,
- referrer URL (the previously visited page),
- host name of the accessing computer (IP address),

are transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to website and Internet use for the purposes of market research and demand-oriented design of these Internet pages. This information may also be transferred to third parties if this is required by law or if third parties process this data on our behalf. Under no circumstances will your IP address be merged with other Google data. The IP addresses are anonymized so that an assignment is not possible (so-called IP masking).

Plug-ins of the short message service Twitter Inc. are integrated on our website. You can recognize the Twitter plug-ins by the Twitter logo (a white bird on a blue background).

When using the plugin, such as clicking the start button of a video, this information is also assigned to your user account. You can prevent this assignment by logging out of your YouTube user account and other user accounts of the companies YouTube LLC and Google Inc. before using our website and deleting the corresponding cookies of the companies.
