6. Tracking of Website Visits/(Use of Piwik)
On this website, we collect and use data from the website visitor on their visit for marketing and optimisation purposes (such as for example the typical visit time to a specific web page, opinions on it, which web pages were visited particularly often, etc.) as well as creating a user profile for this. We use an OpenSource Web Analysis Tool (http://de.piwik.org) with Piwik software for this. However this is done without linking this to a person, but using a pseudonym. We do not use the data to identify you as a specific person. We only apply these pseudonym user profiles to a specific person if they want this or if we are legally allowed to do this.
You have the possibility of objecting to this tracking at any time, by de-activating the cookie functions in your browser. See Clause 5b above for this. Analysis by Piwik and tracking is then discontinued.
7. Use of Google Maps
We have integrated Google Maps into our website at the bottom of the Contact & Support menu item to show your a map of our location and to make your route to us easier.

The data named under Clause 3 a) of this declaration is also transferred. This is independent of whether you are logged in with a Google user account or whether you do not use a user account.
