    2. Purpose

      The processing of your personal data enables us to optimise the user-friendliness of our website and promote turnover by selling goods or services.

      You can revoke your declared consent to the processing of your personal data within the context of the use of Google Analytics at any time for the future by proceeding as follows:

      1. Change of the consent settings on our website

        On our website, we offer you the possibility to simply revoke the processing of your personal data in the context of the use of Google Analytics. To do this, you must click on the “cookie management” tab at the footer of the website.

        By withdrawing your consent, a further cookie is set on your computer, which indicates us not to use Google Analytics. If you delete this cookie, you will be asked for your consent again the next time you visit our website.

      2. Changing the settings of your browser

        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. This can also be done automatically. If technically necessary cookies for our website are also deactivated, it is possible that not all functions of the website can be used to their full extent.

      3. Browser add-on

        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.

        The latest versions of Internet Explorer occasionally load the add-on to disable Google Analytics after personal information 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.
