The best thing to do is to search the instructions in Google using the search term “Delete Chrome cookies” or “Disable Chrome cookies” in the case of a Chrome browser, or replace the word “Chrome” with the name of your browser, e.g. Edge, Firefox, Safari.




Data protection regulations for the application and use of Matomo
Our Website uses Matomo. It is an open-source software in order to record and analyze the use of our website. Usage information is transmitted to our self-hosted server and stored for analysis purposes. The software is self-hosted, the log files, which are sensitive to data protection law, are only saved on this server. We use Matomo with the “Automatically Anonymize Visitor IPs” function. This anonymization function truncates your IP address by two bytes so that it is impossible to assign it to you or to the internet connection you are using.


Matomo is operated by InnoCraft Ltd., 150 Willis St., 6011 Wellington, New Zealand.


If you do not agree to this processing your are able to object at any time by clicking the button below. In this case, a so-called opt-out cookie is stored in your browser without usage data, which means that Matomo does not collect any session data:

Further information and Matomo’s applicable data protection regulations can be found at


Section 26 (1) of the Federal Data Protection Act (BDSG) and point (f) of Article 6 (1) subparagraph (1) GDPR are the legal basis for the data processing. The controller for processing has a legitimate interest in the defence of claims of liability under the German Equal Treatment Act (AGG).


Google Tag Manager

Google Tag Manager is a solution with which we can manage so-called website tags via an interface (and thus integrate Google Analytics into our online offer, for example). The Tag Manager itself (which implements the tags) does not set cookies and does not process any personal user data. With regard to the processing of users’ personal data, reference is made to the following information about Google services. Usage guidelines:



Data protection provisions regarding the use and application of Google Analytics (with anonymisation function)

The controller for processing has integrated the component Google Analytics (with anonymisation function) on this website. Google Analytics is a web analysis service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and evaluation of data about the behaviour of visitors to web pages. Amongst other things, a web analysis service records data concerning from which website a data subject has arrived to an website (known as the referrer), which subsites of the website are accessed, or how often and for what dwell period a subsite was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimise an website and for cost-benefit analysis of internet advertising.


The operating company of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.


The controller for processing uses the suffix “_gat._anonymizeIp” for the web analysis via Google Analytics. Using this suffix, the IP address of the internet connection of the data subject is shortened and anonymised by Google of the access to our web pages is made from a Member State of the European Union or from another signatory state to the EEA Agreement.


The purpose of the Google Analytics component is to analyse visitor traffic on our website. Google uses the data and information obtained, inter alia, to evaluate the use of our website, in order to prepare online reports for us showing activities on our web pages, and in order to provide further services connected with the use of our website.


Google Analytics places a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. The explanation of cookies was given above. By setting the cookie, Google is enabled to analyse use of our website. With each call-up of one of the individual pages of this website operated by the controller for processing and on which a Google Analytics component was integrated, the web browser on the IT system of the data subject is automatically triggered by the respective Google Analytics component to transfer data to Google for the purposes of online analysis. As part of this technical procedure, Google obtains knowledge of personal data, such as the IP address of the data subject, that assists Google amongst other things to understand the origin of the visitors and clicks and subsequently to enable commission settlements.


The cookie stores personal data such as the time of access, the location from which an access was initiated and the frequency of visits to our website by the data subject. With each visit to our web pages, these personal data – including the IP address of the internet connection used by the data subject – are transferred to Google in the United States of America. These personal data are stored by Google in the United States of America. Google may forward these personal data gathered using the technical procedure to third parties under certain circumstances.


The data subject may prevent the setting of cookies by our website, as outlined above, at any time by making the corresponding setting in the web browser used, thereby permanently refusing the setting of cookies. Such a setting on the web browser used would also prevent Google from setting a cookie on the IT system of the data subject. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be erased at any time via the web browser or other software programs.


Moreover, the data subject has the opportunity to object to recording of the data produced by Google Analytics relating to use of this website and the processing of these data by Google and to prevent same. To that end, the data subject must download a browser add-on from the link and install it. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information on the visits to web pages are permitted to be transferred to Google Analytics. Installation of the browser add-on is evaluated by Google as an objection. If the IT system of the data subject is deleted, formatted or reinstalled at a later time, a fresh installation of the browser add-on must be performed by the data subject in order to disable Google Analytics. Where the browser add-on is uninstalled or disabled by the data subject or another person attributable to their sphere of influence, the possibility exists of re-installing or else enabling the browser add-on again. As an alternative to the browser add-on, the data subject can prevent recording by Google Analytics by clicking on the following link: Disable Google Analytics. Doing so sets an opt-out cookie that prevents the future recording of data from the data subject when visiting this website. The opt-out cookie is stored on the device of the data subject, and applies only for this browser and this website. When deleting the cookies in this browser, the opt-out cookie must be set again.


Further information and Google’s applicable privacy arrangements can be downloaded from and from Google Analytics is explained in greater detail at this link


Point (f) of Article 6 (1) subparagraph (1) GDPR and section 15 (3) TMG are the legal basis in this case
for the data processing. The controller for processing has a legitimate interest in the statistical evaluation of use of the website in order to optimise the site.


The IP address and other personal data are automatically erased in Google Analytics after 26 months.
