Content and methods of third parties
We use the content and methods of the Vimeo online video service on some websites
in order to integrate HDI videos. This service is operated by Vimeo, LLC with Head
Office located at 555 West 18th Street, New York, New York 10011, USA.
The internet pages of our internet portal are provided with a Vimeo plugin, and
if you call up the pages, a link to the Vimeo servers is created and the plugin is
displayed in this process. As a result, a message is sent to the Vimeo server informing
it which of our Internet pages you have visited by passing on your IP address. If
you are thereby logged into Vimeo, Vimeo will allocate this information to your personal
account. When you use the plugin, e.g. by clicking on the start button of a video,
this information is also allocated to your account. Other data about your usage can
also be collected, e.g. which video you have viewed when and for how long. You can
prevent this allocation if you deregister from your Vimeo account before you use our
Internet pages and delete the corresponding cookies from Vimeo.
Vimeo uses an iFrame, in which the video is called up, to call up the Google Analytics
tracker. This is a dedicated tracking system from Vimeo to which we have no access.
You can prevent the recording of the data generated by the cookie and relating to
your usage of the website (incl. your IP address) on Google and the processing of
this data by Google if you download and install the browser plugin available under
the following link http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de.
We draw your attention to the fact that we do not have any influence over the scope
in which Vimeo surveys your data and how the provider uses such data. You can find
out about this in the data protection notices of Vimeo https://vimeo.com/privacy.

to our internet pages as convenient as possible. Log reports on accesses to our websites
During your visit to our Internet portal, cookies are automatically stored on your
computer. Cookies are small text files in which we store data so as to make surfing
are able to identify you as a user by means of an anonymous identification without
your having to log in separately.
Only we are able to read these cookies. The information stored in a cookie does
not permit us to allocate it to a particular person or to draw conclusions about individual
visitors to our website.
Session cookies and persistent cookies are used on our websites.
Session cookies make navigation easier and permit specific functions such as our
proposal calculator. Your details are taken over in the proposal calculator so that
they do not have to be entered more than once. When session cookies are deployed,
technologies are not used which allow the access behaviour of the user to be analysed.
The cookies are deleted when you close the Web browser. These settings are only valid
for visiting our web pages.
Persistent or permanent cookies store information between two visits to the websites
so that you can be identified as a returning user if you visit the website again.
This is how we create a higher level of usage convenience for the use of our website.
Persistent cookies also enable us to identify which areas of our Internet portal you
visit most frequently.
Most Internet browsers accept cookies automatically. However, you can configure
your browser so that no cookies are stored on your computer or alternatively a message
is always displayed when you receive a new cookie. You can also delete cookies that
have already been stored on your computer. However, deactivation of cookies can lead
to your not being able to use all the functions on our website.
The callup history of our websites and the downloading of a file, for example a
brochure, are automatically stored by our webservers in a temporary protocol file.
These data are entered by you in the course of using what we offer on our website
and they are stored separately from other data. The data are stored separately in
anonymised form. We require the protocol files in order to enable you to visit our
website (setting up connections) and guarantee system security and stability at all
times. They also facilitate the technical administration of the network infrastructure.

is only evaluated if there are attacks on the network infrastructure and for statistical
purposes without our being able to draw any conclusions about you as a person.

storage and usage of your data for Piwik. If you want to block tracking, your computer
