We use hosting services to make our content available. This includes infrastructure and platform services, computing capacity and database services as well as security services and maintenance. All inventory and usage data, meta and communication data as well as content and contract data are processed. Our hosting provider also uses so-called server log files, which store access data (name of the website, date and time, file, transferred data volume, notification of successful retrieval, browser type and version, operating system as well as referrer URL and IP address). These are used to prevent and track fraud and are stored for a max. duration of 30 days.

Marketing
Based on our legitimate interests (Art. 6 para. 1 GDPR) we use web analysis, marketing and remarketing services (“Google Marketing Services”) of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (“Google”). These include the use of the “Google Tag Manager” to integrate analysis and marketing tools, the advertising program Google Ads and the web analysis service Google Analytics. Google marketing services use so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. You can prevent these cookies being stored by selecting the appropriate settings in your browser. However, we wish to point out that doing so may mean you will not be able to enjoy the full functionality of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by cookies about your use of the website (incl. your IP address) from being passed to Google, and the processing of these data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser plugin available at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

As part of Google Ads, we use so-called conversion tracking. When you click on an ad served by Google, a conversion tracking cookie is set. Cookies are small text files that your internet browser stores on your computer. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification of the user. Should the user visit certain pages of the website and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the website can tell that the user clicked on the ad and proceeded to that page. Each Google Ads advertiser has a different cookie. Thus, cookies cannot be tracked using the website of an advertiser. The information obtained using the conversion cookie is used to create conversion statistics for the advertisers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers are told the total number of users who clicked on their ad and are redirected to a conversion tracking tag page. However, advertisers do not obtain any information that can be used to personally identify users. If you do not want to participate in tracking, you can opt-out of this by easily disabling the Google Conversion Tracking cookie by changing your browser settings. In doing so, you will not be included in the conversion tracking statistics.

These allow our affiliate program partners to define the origin of a visitor (referral). The data is non-personal and pseudonymous and only allows online identification of a user. If a visitor concludes a purchase through an affiliate link, we receive a small commission.
