Use of cookies of the Provider for web analysis

The Provider collects and stores your data under pseudonyms in the context of statistics to measure the reach of its website. When the website is called up, the Provider sends a permanent cookie for web analysis of its telemedia (web-analysis cookie). With the web analysis cookie, the Provider gathers the usage data of the user in pseudonym form, enabling it to identify, for example, how frequently the website is visited by the respective pseudonymised internet user from what regions, and what types of devices the user uses to access the website. Having collected this information, the Provider only stores it on its server in Germany. It is not possible for the Provider to identify the natural person here.

The Provider has implemented the “do not track” process. With this process, the provider of a website or web application can receive notification of the preference that the provider should not create a use profile of the visitor's activities. You can activate the “do not track” process in many modern browsers. Further information on the “do not track” process can be found on the "do not track” website (
