Web analysis


Our website uses the measuring system (SZMnG) of INFOnline GmbH ( to determine statistical parameters on the use of our websites. The aim of the usage measurement is to determine the number of visits to our website, the number of website visitors and their surfing behavior statistically - based on a uniform standard procedure - and thus to obtain comparable values across the market. For all digital services that are member of the Informationsgemeinschaft zur Feststellung der Verbreitung von Werbeträgern e.V. (IVW - or that participate in studies of the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Online-Forschung e.V. (AGOF -, the usage statistics are regularly collected by the AGOF and the Arbeitsgemeinschaft Media-Analyse e.V. (agma - and processed to statistics about unique users, page impressions and visits. These statistics can be viewed on the respective websites.

Legal basis for processing

The use of the aforementioned analysis tools is based on Art. 6 para. 1 letter f) GDPR: the processing takes place for the analysis of the usage behavior and is therefore necessary to protect our legitimate interests. The purpose of the processing of personal data is the production of statistics and the creation of user categories. The statistics are used to understand and verify the usage of our offers. The user categories form the basis for an interest-oriented alignment of advertising. For the advertising on this website, a usage measurement, which ensures comparability with other market participants, is essential. Our legitimate interest stems from the value that the statistics and user categories and the statistics on the market value of our website, in direct comparison with websites of third parties provide that can be determined by the described statistics. In addition, we have a legitimate interest in making available the pseudonymized data of INFOnline, AGOF and IVW for the purposes of market research (AGOF, agma) and for statistical purposes (INFOnline, IVW).

Type of data

The INFOnline GmbH collects the following data, which according to GDPR have a personal reference:

IP address: On the Internet, each device for transmitting data requires a unique address, the so-called IP address. The at least temporary 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 only further processed anonymously. There is no storage or further processing of the unabridged IP addresses.

A randomly generated client identifier: Reach processing uses either a cookie with the identifier, 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 ClientIdentifier is therefore also possible if you call other websites, which also use the measuring method (SZMnG) of INFOnline GmbH. The validity of the cookie is limited to a maximum of 1 year.

Use of data

The measurement of INFOnline GmbH, which is used on this website, stores usage data. This is done to collect the performance values of page impressions, visits, and clients, and to provide additional metrics (e.g., qualified clients). In addition, the measured data is used as follows:

A so-called geo-localization, ie the assignment of a website call to the place of the call, takes place exclusively on the basis of the anonymized IP address and only up to the geographical level of the federal states / regions. From the geographic information obtained in this way, in no case can a conclusion be drawn on the specific location of a user.

The usage data of a technical client (eg a browser on a device) are merged across web pages and stored in a database. This information is used for the technical assessment of socio-information age and gender and passed on to the service providers of AGOF for further range processing. The AGOF study uses a random sample to technically estimate societal characteristics that fall into the following categories: age, gender, nationality, occupation, marital status, household general data, household income, place of residence, internet usage, online Interests, place of use, user type.

Storage duration

The complete IP address will not be saved by INFOnline GmbH. The shortened IP address is stored for a maximum of 60 days. The usage data in connection with the unique identifier are stored for a maximum of 6 months.

Social media

We maintain online presence within social networks and platforms in order to communicate with customers, prospects and users active there and to inform them about our services.

We point out that data of the users can be processed outside the area of the European Union. This may result in risks for the users because e.g. enforcement of user rights could be made more difficult. With respect to US providers certified under the Privacy Shield, we point out that they are committed to respecting EU privacy standards.

Furthermore, the data of the users can be processed for market research and advertising purposes. Thus, e.g. user profiles are created from the user behavior and the resulting interests of the users. The usage profiles can in turn be used to e.g. place advertisements inside and outside the platforms that are allegedly in line with users interests. For these purposes, cookies are usually stored on the computers of the users, in which the user behavior and the interests of the users are stored. Furthermore, in the usage profiles, data can also be stored independently of the devices used by the users (in particular if the users are members of the respective platforms and logged in to them).

The processing of the personal data of users is based on our legitimate interests in an effective information of users and communication with users in accordance with. Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f. GDPR. If the users are asked by the respective providers for a consent to the data processing (that is, they declare their agreement, for example, by ticking a check box or confirming a button), the legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. a., Art. 7 GDPR.

For a detailed description of the respective processing and the possibilities of opt-out, we refer to the following linked information of the provider.

Also in the case of requests for information and the assertion of user rights, we point out that these can be claimed most effectively from the providers. Only the providers have access to the data of the users and can directly take appropriate measures and provide information. If you still need help, then you can contact us.
