11) Tools and Miscellaneous

11.1 Cookie-Consent-Tool

This website uses a so-called "cookie consent tool" to obtain effective user consent for cookies and cookie-based applications that require consent. The "cookie consent tool" is displayed to users in the form of an interactive user interface when they access the page, on which consent for certain cookies and/or cookie-based applications can be given by ticking the appropriate box. Through the use of the tool, all cookies/services requiring consent are only loaded if the respective user gives the corresponding consent by ticking the corresponding box. This ensures that such cookies are only set on the respective end device of the user if consent has been granted.

The tool technically sets cookies that are required for the user's consent.

The tool sets technically necessary cookies to save your cookie preferences. Personal user data is not processed in this process. If, in individual cases, personal data (such as the IP address) is processed for the purpose of storing, assigning or logging cookie settings, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f DSGVO on the basis of our legitimate interest in legally compliant, user-specific and user-friendly consent management for cookies and thus in a legally compliant design of our website.

Further legal basis for the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. c DSGVO. As the responsible party, we are subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user's consent.

We are also subject to the legal obligation to make the use of technically unnecessary cookies dependent on the respective user's consent.

This site uses so-called web fonts from "FontAwesome", a service of Fonticons, Inc, 710 Blackhorn Dr, Carl Junction, 64834, MO, USA ("FontAwesome"), for the uniform display of fonts. When you call up a page, your browser loads the required web fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
For this purpose, the browser you are using must connect to FontAwesome's servers. This may also result in the transmission of personal data to FontAwesome's servers in the USA. In this way, FontAwesome becomes aware that our website has been accessed via your IP address. The use of FontAwesome fonts is in the interest of a uniform and appealing presentation of our online offers. This represents a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR. If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font from your computer will be used. You can find more information about FontAwesome at: https://fontawesome.com/privacy

This site uses the internet-based web design offer of MyFonts of Monotype Imaging Holdings Inc., 600 Unicorn Park Drive , Woburn, MA 01801, USA, for the individualization and graphic design of texts and backgrounds (fonts). When you call up a page, your browser loads the required fonts into its browser cache in order to display texts and fonts correctly.
Because MyFonts' claim to remuneration for providing the fonts is calculated on the basis of the individual access volume to the website, we use a tracking pixel, i.e. a single-pixel image file, which is stored on our website. This pixel enables access count measurement and counts page visits that have taken place.
Insofar as personal data is processed during the described processing activity, this is done in accordance with Art. 6 (1) lit. f GDPR on the basis of our legitimate interest in determining the access figures for the proper determination of MyFonts' remuneration claim.
