They affect the use of personal information which you provide or which is collected using cookies when you visit this website. The websites are subject to the liability of the respective operator. We assume no liability or responsibility for data protection on the websites of third parties.

By activating the IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address is shortened in advance by Google within the member states of the European Union or in other treaty states of the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is your full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the US and then shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate the use of this website to compile reports about web activities and provide services connected with the website use and internet use for the website operator. The IP address transmitted by your browser to Google Analytics will not be associated with other data held by Google.

You may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser; however, we would like to point out that you will not be able to use all functions of this website in their entirety in this case. Moreover, you can prevent capture of the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of such data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link:

You can deactivate Google Analytics for ads and adjust display in the Google display network by calling up the display settings at this link:

This information is not passed on to third parties and is used to control and manage our campaigns. In addition, profiles of users are created for market research purposes which are based on the determined interests.

With its help, we can track the action of users after they have clicked on or liked a Facebook advertisement. This allows us to measure the effectiveness of Facebook advertisements for statistical and marketing purposes.The effectiveness of marketing campaigns can be determined and, if applicable, optimisation measures can be developed based on this data. No extended comparison of customer data (comparison of Facebook data with POWERSERV customer or user data downloaded via export lists) is done in the framework of the “Custom Audience” target group function of Facebook. The data collected in this way is anonymous for us, meaning we do not see the personal information of individual users.
