You will find more information on the individual web analytics services and the deactivation options below.

a. Google Analytics

We’re using Google Analytics. This is a web analytics service provided by Google Inc, USA. The cookie and possibly other automatically generated information about your use of our website (including your IP address) are transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. IP addresses are usually anonymised before, so that an assignment to you is not possible (IP masking). The information is used to evaluate the use of our website in order to compile reports on the website activities and to provide us with further services connected with the use of websites and the Internet. Under no circumstances will your data be merged with other data collected by Google.

The transfer of the information by Google to third parties only takes place if this is required by law in accordance with domestic or foreign regulations, to which Google is subject in the specific case, or as far as other bodies process this data on behalf of Google.

You can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie (including your IP address) related to your use of the website, as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on.

If you do not want to, you can prevent the storage of cookies by your browser settings accordingly. You can also send us an e-mail to if we are not supposed to use HubSpot in connection with your e-mail address.

This allows us to learn how to use this software solution in order to make future improvements. You can revoke your consent at any time.

We use a software technology called Hubspot, which is referred as a “tracking pixel” (alternative designation: Web Beacons / Web Bug). It helps us to understand what content is effective, to manage the website and the subscription service. Tracking pixels are tiny graphics with a unique identifier. Their function is similar to that of cookies, and they serve to track the online movements of web users. Unlike cookies, which are stored on a user’s computer hard disk, pixels are embedded invisibly on web pages or in e-mails and are about as big as the dot at the end of this sentence. We use tracking pixels in our emails in order to track which emails have been opened by the recipients. This allows us to measure the effectiveness of certain communications and our marketing campaigns. We connect the data collected by tracking pixels in emails with the personal data of our customers. If you would like to unsubscribe from these emails, please see the section “When subscribing to our newsletter”.

HubSpot is a software company from the USA with a branch office in Ireland. HubSpot is certified under the terms of the “EU – US Privacy Shield Framework” and is subject to the TRUSTe ‘s Privacy Seal and the “U.S. – SafeSafe Harbor” framework.
