We use tools that are necessary for the operation of the website on the basis of our legitimate interest in enabling you to use our website more conveniently and individually and to make use of it as time-saving as possible. In certain cases, these tools may also be necessary for the performance of a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. In these cases, access to and storage of information in the terminal device is absolutely necessary and is carried out in Germany on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states in accordance with Section 25 (2) TTDSG.

Our website uses the WordPress plugin “Borlabs Cookie” to collect and manage consent and any revocations. When you make a decision in the consent banner, a cookie is set (“borlabs-cookie”) that records your consent or refusal.

Access to and storage of information in the end device is absolutely necessary in these cases and is carried out in Germany on the basis of the implementation laws of the ePrivacy Directive of the EU member states in accordance with Section 25 (1) TTDSG.

We use certain tools to enable the basic functions of our website (“Necessary Tools”). Without these tools, we could not provide our service. Therefore, necessary tools are used without consent based on our legitimate interests or to fulfil a contract or to carry out pre-contractual measures. This includes, for example, “pll_language”, which stores the selected language of our website.
In order to improve our website, we use tools to collect statistics and analyse general usage behaviour based on access data (“analysis and marketing tools”). We also use analytics services to evaluate the use of our various marketing channels. The legal basis for the analysis tools is – unless otherwise stated – your consent.
