Based on our legitimate interests (i.e., our interest in the analysis, optimization, and economical operation of our online offerings in accordance with Article 6 section 1(f) of the GDPR), we use contents and services provided by third parties, integrating such contents and services, such as videos or fonts (hereinafter referred to as "contents"), into our website. Such integration of contents always necessitates disclosure of the user’s IP address to the third-party providers, who would not be able to transmit the contents to the user's web browser without the IP address, which therefore is required for the display of such contents. We make every effort to use only such contents whose providers use IP addresses solely for the delivery of the contents. Moreover, third-party providers may use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also known as web beacons) for statistical or marketing purposes. Pixel tags may be used to evaluate information such as the user traffic on the pages of this website. Pseudonymous information including, but not limited to, technical information on the browser and operating system, referring websites, time and duration of visit, and other information on the usage of our online offerings may furthermore be stored in cookies on the user's device and may be correlated with similar information from other sources.
