5. Google Analysis Tools
The tracking measures listed below and used by us are based on Art. 6 para. 1 page 1 lit. f GDPR. With the tracking measures to be used, we want to ensure a needs-based design and the continuous optimization of our website. On the other hand, we use the tracking measures to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our offer for you. These interests are to be regarded as justified within the meaning of the aforementioned provision.
The respective data processing purposes and data categories can be found in the corresponding tracking tools.
For the purpose of customizing and continually optimizing our website, we use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (https://www.google.com/intl/en/about/) (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA in; 94043 Following “Google”). In this context, pseudonymised usage profiles are created and cookies (see point 4) are used. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as

The information is used to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on the activities on the website and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the internet for the purpose of market research and the need-based design of these websites. This information may also be transferred to third parties if required by law or if third parties process this data by order. Under no circumstances your IP address will be merged with any other data provided by Google. The IP addresses are anonymized, so that an assignment is not possible (IP masking).
You can prevent the installation of cookies by setting the browser software accordingly; however, we point out that in this case not all functions of this website may be fully used.
In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing a browser add-on (https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
As an alternative to the browser add-on, especially for browsers on mobile devices, you can prevent the collection by Google Analytics by clicking on this link. An opt -out cookie will be set which prevents the future collection of your data when visiting this website. 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.
For more information about privacy in the context of Google Analytics, see the Google Analytics Help Center ( https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245 ? Hl = DE ).
In order to statistically record the use of our website and to evaluate it for the purpose of optimizing our website, we also use Google conversion tracking. In doing so, Google Adwords will set a cookie (see fig./point 4) on your computer, provided that you have reached our website via a Google ad.
These cookies lose their validity after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of the website of the Adwords customer and the cookie has not yet expired, Google and the customer can recognize that the user clicked on the ad and was redirected to this page.
Each advertiser receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot be tracked through the websites of advertisers. The information gathered using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for Adwords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. The Adwords customers know the total number of users who have clicked on their ad and have been directed to a Conversion tracking tag website. However, they do not receive information that personally identifies users.
6. Consent for further use

Personal data that you submit by email will be stored by WERKPATENT and used to process the email according to its intended purpose. WERKPATENT does not wish to receive unsolicited advertising and other similar offers.
Should we make any other offers on the Internet in the future, the relevant conditions for the protection of personal data will be published here or in connection with the access to the respective new offer.
WERKPATENT implements technical and organizational security measures to protect your personal data managed by us against accidental or intentional manipulation, loss, destruction or access by unauthorized persons. Our security measures are continuously improved in line with technological developments.
