The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website will generally be transmitted to and stored by Google on servers in the United States.

Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services relating to website activity and internet usage to the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics is not merged with other data from Google.

Google Optimize

Our website uses Google Optimize, a Web analytics and optimization service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA. Google Optimize enables us to present new functions and content on our website to just a percentage of our users and record the changing use of our website.

The information generated by the cookies about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, we have activated IP anonymization for Google Optimize, meaning that your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA) prior to transfer.  Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information in order to evaluate your use of our website and compile reports about optimization testing and the associated website activities.
The legal basis for the storage of Google Optimize cookies is Article 6 (1f) of the GDPR. As the website operator, we have a legitimate interest in analyzing user behavior in order to optimize our website.


We use Hotjar in order to better understand our users’ needs and to optimize this service and experience. Hotjar is a technology service that helps us better understand our users experience (e.g. how much time they spend on which pages, which links they choose to click, what users do and don’t like, etc.) and this enables us to build and maintain our service with user feedback. Hotjar uses cookies and other technologies to collect data on our users’ behavior and their devices (in particular device’s IP address (captured and stored only in anonymized form), device screen size, device type (unique device identifiers), browser information, geographic location (country only), preferred language used to display our website).

We use services of the Quora service. Quora is operated by Quora, Inc., 650 Castro Street, Suite 450, Mountain View, CA 94041 (“Quora”). Quora enables us to use target-group based advertising, re-targeting and conversion measurements for online advertising through the so-called visitor interaction pixel. In doing so, offers for specific target groups are played out based on a selection of general criteria, such as demographic characteristics, regions or interests. Quora also allows us to target ads based on your previous page views. For example, if you are interested in certain services, information, or offers on our site, you may be shown ads and references to our offerings and content. Only general and technical information about pages viewed is evaluated. If you generally do not want Quora to collect any data, you can prevent the storage of cookies at any time by changing your browser settings accordingly, which could restrict their function.

You can find more information about Quora in the Quora privacy policy.

The storage of “conversion cookies” is based on Art.6 para.1 lit. f DSGVO. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the analysis of user behavior in order to improve both his website and his advertising.


Cookies are small pieces of information that web pages send to your device to uniquely identify your browser. Cookies do not damage your computer and do not contain viruses. Cookies are used to make our website more user-friendly, effective and secure.

In addition, cookie technology is also used by tools such as Google Analytics.
