Scope of data processingIn order to make your visit to our website user-friendly and effective and to enable the use of certain functions, we use so-called cookies on various pages. These are small text files which are stored on your device and which store certain settings and data for exchange with our system via your browser. Through the cookies, certain information flows to the place that places the cookie (here through us). Cookies cannot run programs or transmit viruses to your computer. Cookies do not contain any personal data and can therefore not be directly assigned to any user. Please note that certain cookies are set as soon as you enter our website. This website uses the following types of cookies:
- Transient cookies: These are automatically deleted when you close your browser. This includes in particular the session cookies. These store a so-called session ID, with which different requests of your browser can be assigned to the common session. This will allow your computer to be recognized when you return to our website. Session cookies are deleted when you log out or close your browser.
- Persistent cookies: These are automatically deleted after a specified period, which may vary depending on the cookie. You can delete cookies at any time in the security settings of your browser.
- Third-Party-Cookies: These cookies of some of our advertising partners help to make our website more interesting for you. For this reason, cookies from partner companies are also stored on your hard drive when you visit our website. These are temporary cookies that automatically delete themselves after the specified time. Cookies from partner companies are usually deleted after a few days or up to 24 months, in some cases even after several years. The cookies of our partner companies do not contain any personal data either. Pseudonym data is only collected under a user ID. These pseudonymous data will never be combined with your personal data.
The Flash cookies used are not recorded by your browser, but by your Flash plug-in. We also use HTML5 storage objects that are stored on your mobile device. These objects store the required data independently of your browser and do not have an automatic expiry date. If you do not wish the Flash cookies to be processed, you must install an appropriate add-on, e.g. "Better Privacy" for Mozilla Firefox (https://addons.mozilla.org/de/firefox/addon/betterprivacy/) or the Adobe Flash killer cookie for Google Chrome. You can prevent the use of HTML5 storage objects by using private mode in your browser. We also recommend that you regularly delete your cookies and your browser history manually.

VI. Use of analysis tools
Web analysis services are used on our website for the purposes of demand-oriented design and advertising.
§ 1 Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. "("Google"). Google Analytics uses "cookies", which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
We have activated the IP anonymisation function on this website. This will cause your IP address to be cut by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other countries party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area before being transmitted to the USA. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics is not merged with other Google data.
As an alternative to the browser plug-in, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent Google Analytics from collecting your data by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set that prevents the collection of your data on future visits to this website.
Disable Google Analytics
The opt-out cookie is only valid in this browser and only for our website and is stored on your device. If you delete the cookies in this browser, you must set the opt-out cookie again.
Contract data processing
We have concluded a contract with Google for commissioned data processing and implement the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities for the use of Google Analytics.
We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. For the exceptional cases in which personal data is transferred to the USA, Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 Par. 1 S. 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes.
§ 2 Econda
For the demand-oriented design and optimization of this website we work with technology web analytics of the company Econda GmbH (www.econda.de). Data is collected and stored for the creation of user profiles using pseudonyms. Cookies may be used for this purpose. These are short text files that enable the recognition of an Internet browser. Without the express consent of the visitor, no personal data will be merged with the bearer of the pseudonym. In particular, IP addresses are made so unrecognisable after their receipt that it is not possible to assign the IP address to a specific user profile. You can object to a future collection and storage of your data at any time. To do this, click on this link: www.econda.de/econda/unternehmen/datenschutz/ contradpruchscookie/. An opt-out cookie is then stored on your mobile device. The link must be clicked again if you delete your cookies.
Further information on the scope of data processing and the data protection declaration of Econda GmbH can be found at https://www.econda.de/service/datenschutz/.
§ 3 Matomo
This website uses the web analysis service Matomo to analyse and regularly improve the use of our website. We can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of Matomo is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GMO.
Cookies (more information under V.) are stored on your computer for this evaluation. The person responsible stores the information collected in this way exclusively on his server in Germany. You can set the evaluation by deleting existing cookies and preventing the storage of cookies. If you prevent the storage of cookies, we point out that you may not be able to use this website in its entirety. The prevention of the storage of cookies is possible through the setting in your browser. To prevent Matomo from being used, uncheck the following box to activate the opt-out plug-in: Piwik Iframe
This website uses Matomo with the extension "AnonymizeIP". This shortens the processing of IP addresses and prevents direct personal contact. The IP address transmitted by your browser using Matomo will not be merged with other data collected by us.
The Matomo program is an open source project. You can obtain information on data protection from the third-party provider at https://matomo.org/privacy-policy/.
§ 4 IntelliAD
In order to be able to analyze and design the use of our website according to requirements, we use the IntelliAd Tracking Tool ("IntelliAd") of IntelliAd Media GmbH. For this purpose, anonymized usage data is collected and aggregated and user profiles are created from this data using randomly generated user IDs ("pseudonyms"). The IP addresses of the users are made unrecognisable after their receipt by shortening in such a way that an assignment of the IP address to a certain usage profile is not possible. When IntelliAd tracking is used, cookies are stored locally in the visitor's browser. Cookies are short text files that enable the recognition of an Internet browser. Without the express consent of the visitor, no personal data will be merged with the bearer of the pseudonym.
You can object to a future collection and storage of your data at any time. To do this, click on this link: www.intelliad.de/opt-out-manager/. An opt-out cookie is then stored on your mobile device. The link must be clicked again if you delete your cookies.
Further information on the scope of data collection and storage as well as the data protection declaration of IntelliAd GmbH can be found at www.intelliad.de/dsgvo-konformes-tracking/ as well as at https://www.intelliad.de/datenschutzerklaerung/.
§ 5 Eventim Analytics
In order to be able to provide our website offer always according to demand we use the Eventim Analytics - Tool of the company Eventim AG & Co. KGaA ("Eventim"). The scope of data collection and storage by this tool and the data protection declaration of Eventim can be found at www.eventim.de/tickets.html and www.eventim.de/tickets.html. You can object to a future collection and storage of your data at any time. To do this, click on this link: http://www.eventim.de/tickets.html?affiliate=TUG&doc=info/dataProtectionOptout.
§ 6 Social Media Plugins
We currently use the following social media plug-ins:
We use the so-called two-click solution. This means that when you visit our site ("first click"), no personal data is initially passed on to the providers of the plug-ins. You can recognize the provider of the plug-in by the marking on the box above its initial letter or the logo. We offer you the possibility to communicate directly with the provider of the plug-in via the button. Only if you click on the marked field ("second click") and thereby activate it, the plug-in provider receives the information that you have called the corresponding website of our online offer. In addition, the data mentioned under III. §1 of this declaration are transmitted. In the case of Facebook, according to the provider in Germany, the IP address is anonymized immediately after collection. By activating the plug-in, personal data is transferred from you to the respective plug-in provider and stored there (for US providers in the USA). Since the plug-in provider collects data mainly via cookies, we recommend that you delete all cookies before clicking on the grayed-out box using your browser's security settings.
We have no influence on the data collected and data processing processes, nor are we aware of the full extent of data collection, the purposes of processing, the storage periods. We also have no information on the deletion of the data collected by the plug-in provider.
The plug-in provider stores the data collected about you as user profiles and uses these for the purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such an evaluation takes place in particular (also for not logged in users) for the representation of demand-fair advertisement and in order to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact the respective plug-in provider as the person responsible for data protection. Through the plug-ins we offer you the possibility to interact with social networks and other users, so that we can improve our offer and make it more interesting for you as a user. The legal basis for the use of the plug-ins is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO. Our legitimate interest arises from the above-mentioned purposes.
The data is transferred regardless of whether you have an account with the plug-in provider and are logged in there. If you are logged in with the plug-in provider, your data collected with us will be directly assigned to your existing account with the plug-in provider. If you click the activated button and, for example, link the page, the plug-in provider also stores this information in your user account and shares it publicly with your contacts. We recommend that you log out regularly after using a social network, especially before activating the button, as this way you can avoid being assigned to your profile with the plug-in provider.
For more information on the purpose and scope of data collection and its processing by the plug-in provider, please refer to the data protection declarations of these providers as notified below. They will also provide you with further information about your rights in this regard and setting options to protect your privacy.

VIII. Advertising partner
§ 1 Facebook Remarketing
The website also uses the remarketing function "Custom Audiences" of Facebook Inc. "("Facebook"). This allows users of the website to see interest-based advertisements ("Facebook ads") when visiting the social network Facebook or other websites that also use the process. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you in order to make our website more interesting for you.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Facebook server. We have no influence on the extent and further use of the data collected by Facebook through the use of this tool and therefore inform you according to our level of knowledge: By integrating Facebook Custom Audiences, Facebook receives the information that you have called up the corresponding website of our Internet presence, or that you have clicked on an advertisement from us. If you are registered with a Facebook service, Facebook can associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Facebook or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address and other identifying information.
The function "Facebook Custom Audiences" can be deactivated[here] and for logged in users at www.facebook.com/settings/.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GMO. For more information about Facebook's data processing, please visit www.facebook.com/about/privacy.
§ 2 Google Adwords
We use the offer of Google Adwords to draw attention to our attractive offers with the help of advertising materials (so-called Google Adwords) on external websites. We can determine in relation to the data of the advertising campaigns how successful the individual advertising measures are. We are interested in showing you advertisements that are of interest to you, to make our website more interesting for you and to achieve a fair calculation of advertising costs.
These advertising media are delivered by Google via so-called "Ad Servers". For this purpose, we use ad server cookies, through which certain parameters for measuring success, such as the insertion of ads or clicks by users, can be measured. If you access our website via a Google ad, Google Adwords stores a cookie on your PC. These cookies usually expire after 30 days and are not intended to identify you personally. For this cookie, the unique cookie ID, number of ad impressions per placement (frequency), last impression (relevant for post-view conversions) and opt-out information (mark that the user no longer wishes to be addressed) are usually stored as analysis values.
These cookies enable Google to recognize your Internet browser. If a user visits certain pages of an Adwords customer's website and the cookie stored on their computer has not expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Adwords customer is assigned a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced via the websites of Adwords customers. We do not collect and process any personal data in the aforementioned advertising measures. We only receive statistical evaluations from Google. On the basis of these evaluations we can recognize which of the used advertising measures are particularly effective. We do not receive any further data from the use of advertising material; in particular, we cannot identify users on the basis of this information.
Due to the marketing tools used, your browser automatically establishes a direct connection to the Google server. We have no influence on the extent and the further use of the data which are raised by the use of this tool by Google and inform you therefore according to our knowledge: By the integration of AdWords conversion Google receives the information that you called the appropriate part of our Internet appearance or clicked an announcement of us. If you are registered with a Google service, Google may associate your visit with your account. Even if you are not registered with Google or have not logged in, it is possible that the provider may obtain and store your IP address.
You can prevent participation in this tracking procedure in various ways:
- a) by adjusting your browser software accordingly, in particular the suppression of third party cookies means that you will not receive any ads from third party providers;
- b) by disabling cookies for conversion tracking by setting your browser to block cookies from the "www.googleadservices.com" domain, www.google.de/settings/ads, which will be deleted when you delete your cookies;
- c) by deactivating the interest-based ads of the providers that are part of the "About Ads" self-regulation campaign via the link www.aboutads.info/choices, this setting being deleted if you delete your cookies;
- d) by permanent deactivation in your browsers Firefox, Internet Explorer or Google Chrome under the link www.google.com/settings/ads/plugin. Please note that in this case you may not be able to use all functions of this offer in full.
The legal basis for the processing of your data is Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DS-GMO. Further information on data protection at Google can be found here: www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy and services.google.com/sitestats/de.html. Alternatively, you can visit the website of the Network Advertising Initiative (NAI) at www.networkadvertising.org Google has submitted to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
§ 3 Google Remarketing
Besides Adwords we use the application Google Remarketing. This is a process we would like to use to contact you again. This application allows you to see our advertisements after visiting our website when you continue to use the Internet. This is done by means of cookies stored in your browser, which are used to record and evaluate your usage behaviour when Google visits various websites. This is how Google can determine your previous visit to our website. According to its own statements, Google does not merge the data collected within the scope of remarketing with your personal data, which may be stored by Google. According to Google, pseudonymisation is used for remarketing in particular.
§ 4 Bing Ads
On our website, data is collected and saved using the technologies of Bing Ads from which usage profiles are created using pseudonyms. This is a service of the Microsoft Corporation, One Microsoft Way, Redmond, WA 98052-6399, USA. This service enables us to track the activities of users on our website if they accessed our website via advertisements from Bing Ads. If you access our website via an advertisement of this nature, a cookie is set on your computer. A Bing UET tag is integrated on our website. This is a code which, in combination with the cookie, saves some non-personal data about the usage of the website. This includes, among other things, the time spent on the website, which areas of the website were opened and via which advertisement the users accessed the website. No information about your identity is collected.
Furthermore, Microsoft can possibly track your usage behavior across several of your electronic devices using so-called Cross-Device Tracking and is thereby able to display personalized advertising on or in Microsoft web pages and apps. You can deactivate this behavior under choice.microsoft.com/de-de/opt-out.
Further information about the analysis services of Bing can be found on the Bing Ads website help.bingads.microsoft.com. Further information about data protection at Microsoft and Bing can be found in Microsoft’s data protection provisions privacy.microsoft.com/privacystatement.
IX. Google Maps
On this website we use the offer of Google Maps. This allows us to display interactive maps directly on the website and enables you to conveniently use the map function.
By visiting the website, Google receives the information that you have called up the corresponding subpage of our website. In addition, the data specified in § 3 of this declaration will be transmitted. This is regardless of whether Google provides a user account that you are logged in with or whether no user account exists. If you are logged in to Google, your information will be directly associated with your account. If you do not wish to be associated with your profile on Google, you must log out before activating the button. Google stores your data as usage profiles and uses them for purposes of advertising, market research and/or demand-oriented design of its website. Such evaluation takes place in particular (even for unlogged-in users) to provide demand-oriented advertising and to inform other users of the social network about your activities on our website. You have the right to object to the creation of these user profiles, whereby you must contact Google to exercise this right.

If the data controller has made the personal data concerning you public and is obliged to delete it pursuant to Art. 17 para. 1 DSGVO, he shall take appropriate measures, including technical measures, taking into account the available technology and the implementation costs, to inform data processors who process the personal data that you as the data subject have requested the deletion of all links to this personal data or of copies or replications of this personal data.
The right to cancellation does not exist insofar as the processing is necessary
- to exercise freedom of expression and information;
- for the performance of a legal obligation required for processing under the law of the Union or of the Member States to which the controller is subject or for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller;
- for reasons of public interest in the field of public health pursuant to Art. 9 para. 2 lit. h and i and Art. 9 para. 3 DSGVO;
- for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or for statistical purposes pursuant to Art. 89 para. 1 DSGVO, insofar as the law referred to under a) is likely to render impossible or seriously impair the attainment of the objectives of such processing, or
- to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to limitation of processing, Art. 18 DSGVO:
Under the following conditions, you may request that the processing of personal data concerning you be restricted:
- if you dispute the accuracy of the personal data concerning you for a period of time that enables the person responsible to verify the accuracy of the personal data;
- the processing is unlawful and you refuse to delete the personal data and instead request that the use of the personal data be restricted;
- the data controller no longer needs the personal data for the purposes of the processing, but you need them to assert, exercise or defend legal claims, or
- if you have filed an objection to the processing pursuant to Art. 21 para. 1 DSGVO (cf. Clause XI) and it has not yet been determined whether the legitimate reasons of the person responsible outweigh your reasons.
If the processing of personal data concerning you has been restricted, such data may only be processed - apart from being stored - with your consent or for the purpose of asserting, exercising or defending rights or protecting the rights of another natural or legal person or on grounds of an important public interest of the Union or a Member State.
If you have obtained a processing restriction in accordance with the above conditions, you will be informed by the person responsible before the restriction is lifted.
Right to information, Art. 19 DSGVO:
If you have exercised your right to have the data controller correct, delete or limit the processing, he/she is obliged to inform all recipients to whom the personal data concerning you have been disclosed of this correction or deletion of the data or restriction on processing, unless this proves impossible or involves a disproportionate effort.
The person responsible shall have the right to be informed of such recipients.
Right to data transferability, Art. 20 DSGVO:
You have the right to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to the person responsible in a structured, common and machine-readable format. In addition, you have the right to pass this data on to another person in charge without obstruction by the person in charge to whom the personal data was provided, provided that
- the processing is based on a consent pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. a DSGVO or Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a DSGVO or on a contract pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 lit. b DSGVO and
- processing is carried out using automated methods.
In exercising this right, you also have the right to request that the personal data concerning you be transferred directly from one data controller to another data controller, insofar as this is technically feasible. The freedoms and rights of other persons must not be affected by this.
Your right to cancellation remains unaffected.
The right to transferability shall not apply to the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a task in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority conferred on the controller.
Recht auf Widerspruch, Art. 21 DSGVO
Right to revoke the data protection declaration of consent:
You can revoke your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. Please note that the revocation will only take effect in the future. The legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation is not affected.
Automated decision in individual cases including profiling, Art. 22 DSGVO:
You have the right not to be subject to a decision based exclusively on automated processing - including profiling - that has legal effect against you or significantly impairs you in a similar manner. This does not apply if the decision
- (1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the person responsible,
- (2) the legislation of the Union or of the Member States to which the person responsible is subject is admissible and that legislation contains appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or
- (3) with your express consent.
In cases (1) and (3), the person responsible takes reasonable measures to protect your rights and freedoms as well as your legitimate interests, including at least the right to obtain the intervention of a person by the person responsible, to state his own position and to challenge the decision.
Furthermore, decisions based exclusively on automated processing may not be based on special categories of personal data pursuant to Art. 9 para. 1 DSGVO, unless Art. 9 para. 2 lit. a or g DSGVO applies and appropriate measures have been taken to protect your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests.
Right of appeal to a supervisory authority, Art. 77 DSGVO:
You also have the right to complain to a data protection supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data. You can lodge your complaint with the supervisory authority in the Member State where you reside, work or suspected infringement. The supervisory authority to which the complaint was lodged informs you as the complainant about the status and the results of the complaint, including the possibility of a legal remedy under Article 78 DSGVO.
You can exercise your aforementioned rights by sending us an informal message. This message should be sent to:
XI. Right of objection according to Art. 21 DSGVO
Right of objection in individual cases:
You have the right to object at any time for reasons arising from your particular situation to the processing of personal data relating to you, which is based on Art. 6 para. 1 lit. e DSGVO (data processing in the public interest) and Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 lit. f DSGVO (data processing to protect the legitimate interests of the data controller or a third party); this also applies to profiling based on these provisions. If you object, we will no longer process your personal data, unless we can prove compelling reasons worthy of protection for the processing, which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms, or the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
Right to object to the processing of data for advertising purposes
In individual cases we process your personal data for direct marketing purposes. You have the right to object at any time to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of such advertising; this also applies to profiling, provided that it is associated with such direct advertising. If you object to the processing for direct advertising purposes, we will no longer process your personal data for these purposes.
The objection in the above-mentioned cases can be made form-free and should be addressed with the subject "objection" if possible to:
- 1. Postal: To the contact address in the Imprint
