When you access a page with an integrated Vimeo plugin, a connection to the Vimeo servers is established. This tells Vimeo which of our pages you have accessed. Vimeo learns your IP address even if you are not logged in to the video portal or do not have an account there.

Vimeo can assign your surfing behavior directly to your personal profile. You can prevent this by logging out beforehand.
Our website uses functions of the web analysis service Google Analytics. The provider of the web analysis service is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
Google Analytics uses “cookies.” These are small text files that your web browser stores on your device and enable website usage to be analyzed. Information generated by cookies about your use of our website is transmitted to a Google server and stored there. The server location is usually the USA.
Google Analytics cookies are set on the basis of Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website and, if necessary, advertising.
We use Google Analytics in conjunction with the IP anonymization function. It guarantees that Google shortens your IP address within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before transmitting it to the USA. There may be exceptional cases in which Google transfers the full IP address to a server in the USA and shortens it there. On our behalf, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to create reports on website activity and to provide us with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
The setting of cookies by your web browser can be prevented. However, this could limit some functions of our website. You can also prevent the collection of data relating to your website use, including your IP address, and subsequent processing by Google. This is possible by downloading and installing the browser plugin available via the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de .

You can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie will be set to prevent your data from being collected on future visits to our website: deactivate Google Analytics.
In order to fully comply with legal data protection requirements, we have concluded an order processing contract with Google.
Demographic characteristics in Google Analytics
Our website uses the “demographic characteristics” function of Google Analytics. It can be used to create reports that contain information about the age, gender and interests of site visitors. This data comes from interest-based advertising from Google and third-party visitor data. It is not possible to assign the data to a specific person. You can deactivate this function at any time. This is possible via the ad settings in your Google account or by generally prohibiting the collection of your data by Google Analytics, as explained in the section “Objection to data collection”.
Google Web Fonts
Our website uses web fonts from Google. The provider is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA.
By using these web fonts, it is possible to present you with the representation of our website that we want, regardless of which fonts are available to you locally. This is done by retrieving the Google Web Fonts from a Google server in the USA and thereby passing on your data to Google. This is your IP address and which page you visited on our website. The use of Google Web Fonts is based on Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. As the operator of this website, we have a legitimate interest in the optimal presentation and transmission of our website.
