5) Tools and miscellaneous
Cookie Consent Tool
This website uses a so-called “cookie consent tool” to obtain effective user consent for cookies requiring consent and cookie-based applications. The “Cookie Consent Tool” is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access a page, where they can give their consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications by ticking a box. By using the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user gives the corresponding consent by ticking the box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the user’s device if consent has been given.
The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal user data is not processed in this context.
If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. 1 lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.
Another legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c GDPR. As the controller, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user consent.
Where necessary, we have concluded an order processing contract with the provider, which ensures the protection of the data of our website visitors and prohibits unauthorized disclosure to third parties.
Further information about the operator and the setting options of the cookie consent tool can be found directly in the corresponding user interface on our website.
