On our website, we offer you the possibility to simply revoke the processing of your personal data in the context of the use of tracking cookies. To do this, you must follow the corresponding link Cookies.

By withdrawal of your consent a further cookie is set on your computer, which signals us to use no tracking cookies. If you delete the corresponding cookie, you will be asked for your consent by us again the next time you visit our website.

Alternatively, you can deactivate or restrict the transmission of cookies in general by changing the settings in your browser. You can delete already stored cookies at any time.

(3) Special case: Google Analytics
If you do not want your personal data to be processed by Google Analytics, you can also install the browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics. This add-on instructs the JavaScript of Google Analytics (ga.js, analytics.js and dc.js) executed on websites not to allow the sending of information to Google Analytics.

If you want to disable Google Analytics, go to the page below and install the Google Analytics disablement add-on for your browser. For detailed information on installing and uninstalling the add-on, please refer to the relevant help resources for your browser.

Browser and operating system updates may result in the deactivation add-on to no longer work as envisaged. Further information about managing add-ons for Chrome, see the pages listed below. If you do not use Chrome, ask your browser manufacturer directly whether add-ons work properly in the browser version that you use.

The latest versions of Internet Explorer occasionally load the add-on to disable Google Analytics after personal data has already been sent to Google Analytics. Therefore, if you use Internet Explorer, the add-on will install cookies on your computer. These cookies ensure that any data collected is immediately deleted from the server that collected it. Make sure that third-party cookies are not disabled for Internet Explorer. If you delete your cookies, the add-on will reset these cookies within a short period of time to ensure that your Google Analytics browser add-on continues to work properly.

The browser add-on to disable Google Analytics does not prevent personal data from being sent to the website or other tracking services.
