Demographic characteristics with Google Analytics
This website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. Reports that contain statements on the age, gender and interests of the site visitors can thus be generated. This data comes from interest-based advertising by Google as well as from visitor data from third-party providers. This data cannot be associated with any specific person.

Google Ads and Google conversion tracking
This website uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online advertising platform offered by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, United States (“Google”).
Within the framework of Google Ads, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad placed by Google, a cookie is set for conversion tracking. Cookies are small text files that the internet browser stores on the user’s computer. These cookies are no longer valid after 30 days and do not serve to personally identify users. If the user visits certain pages on this website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and we can see that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page. You can set your browser so that you are informed about the setting of cookies and only allow cookies on a case-by-case basis, exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general, and activate the automatic deletion of the cookies when closing the browser. When cookies are deactivated, the functionality of this website may be limited. Each Google Ads customer receives a different cookie. The cookies cannot be tracked via the websites of Google Ads customers. The information collected with the help of the conversion cookie serves to create conversion statistics for Google Ads customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The customers find out the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and been redirected to a page equipped with a conversion tracking tag. However, they do not receive any information that allows users to be personally identified.
Google’s data protection statement
Although we declare legitimate interests in the use and storage of “conversion cookies”, we offer you opt-out options. If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can object to this usage by deactivating the Google conversion tracking cookie via your internet browser under user settings. You will then not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.
You can find another opt-out option in our cookie declaration.
