In some cases we make use of external service providers in accordance with our legitimate interests with regard to analysis, optimisation and economical operation of the online content. This always requires that the third-party providers of this content access the IP address of the users, due to the fact they could not send the content to their browsers without the IP address.

Third party providers may also use so-called pixel tags (invisible graphics, also called "web beacons") for statistical or marketing purposes. Using “Pixel Tags” information such as user traffic can be evaluated on the pages of this website. The pseudonymous information may also be stored in cookies on the user's device and may include, among other things, technical information similar to the logfiles. We have listed our service providers below.
