The aim of the usage measurement is to statistically determine the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors and their surfing behaviour - on the basis of a uniform standard procedure - and thus to obtain comparable market values.
For all digital offers made by members of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (Information Association for the Determination of the Distribution of Advertising Media), the following applies (IVW - www.ivw.eu) or to the studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (Online Research Association). (AGOF - www.agof.de), the usage statistics are regularly compiled by AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (Media Analysis Association). (agma - www.agma-mmc.de) and published with the performance value "Unique User" and by the IVW with the performance values "Page Impression" and "Visits". These ranges and statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.
1. legal basis for the processing
The measurement by INFOnline GmbH using the measurement method SZMnG is carried out with justified interest in accordance with Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) DSGVO.
The purpose of processing personal data is to compile statistics and create user categories. The statistics serve to trace and document the use of our offer. The user categories form the basis for an interest-oriented orientation of advertising media or advertising measures. In order to market this website, it is essential to measure its usage in order to ensure comparability with other market participants. Our justified interest results from the economic usability of the knowledge resulting from the statistics and user categories and the market value of our web page - also in direct comparison with web pages of third parties - which can be determined on the basis of the statistics. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making the pseudonymised data available to INFOnline, AGOF and IVW for market research (AGOF, agma) and statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW).

The INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which according to EU-DSGVO have a personal reference:
• IP address: In the Internet, every device needs a unique address to transmit data, the so-called IP address. The at least short-term storage of the IP address is technically necessary due to the functioning of the Internet. The IP addresses are shortened by 1 byte before any processing and are only anonymized. are further processed. There will be no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses.
• A randomly generated client identifier: Reach processing uses either a third-party cookie, a first-party cookie, a local storage object, or a signature created from various automatically transmitted information from your browser to recognize computer systems. This identifier is unique to a browser as long as the cookie or local storage object is not deleted. A measurement of the data and subsequent assignment to the respective client identifier is therefore also possible if you call up other websites that also use the INFOnline GmbH measurement method ("SZMnG").
The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.
3. use of the data
The INFOnline GmbH measurement method used on this website collects usage data. This is done in order to collect the performance values of page impressions, visits and clients and to form further key figures (e.g. qualified clients). In addition, the measured data are used as follows:
• A so-called geolocalization, i.e. the assignment of a website call to the location of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymous IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. In no case can the geographical information obtained in this way be used to draw conclusions about the actual whereabouts of a user.
• The usage data of a technical client (e.g. a browser on a device) is merged across websites and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical assessment of the socioinformation on age and gender and transferred to AGOF's service providers for further coverage processing. The AGOF study uses a random sample to technically assess socio-characteristics that can be assigned to the following categories: Age, gender, nationality, professional activity, marital status, general household information, household income, place of residence, Internet use, online interests, place of use, user type.
4. storage time of the data
The complete IP address is not stored by INFOnline GmbH. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in conjunction with the unique identifier are stored for a maximum of 6 months.
5. transmission of the data

If your browser does not support web fonts, a standard font is used by your computer.
We use "Google reCAPTCHA" (hereinafter "reCAPTCHA") on our websites. This service is provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA ("Google").
reCAPTCHA is used to check whether the data entered on our website (such as on a contact form) has been entered by a human or by an automated program. To do this, reCAPTCHA analyzes the behavior of the website visitor based on various characteristics. This analysis starts automatically as soon as the website visitor enters the website. For the analysis, reCAPTCHA evaluates various information (e.g. IP address, how long the visitor has been on the website, or mouse movements made by the user). The data collected during the analysis will be forwarded to Google.
The reCAPTCHA analyses take place completely in the background. Website visitors are not advised that such an analysis is taking place.
Data processing is based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in protecting its site from abusive automated crawling and spam.
