How can cookies be restricted / deactivated?
Due to the restriction / deactivation of cookies in the browser, some functions of our offers can only be used to a limited extent or not at all.

To optimize the newsletter for you, we look at how often it is opened by readers and which links the readers click. In the course of the registration process, the user's consent is obtained for the processing of data and reference is made to this data protection declaration.

A disclosure only takes place within the imc Test & Measurement GmbH group of companies. The legal basis of the processing is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR, whereby our entitlement arises from the fact that on the one hand we have an interest in central data storage and on the other hand, a person concerned can reasonably foresee at the time of the collection of the personal data, and in view of the circumstances in which it takes place (in particular the above-mentioned measures, which also serve the security of the user), that processing for this purpose may possibly take place.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyze how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on these websites, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use.
Our website uses Google Conversion Tracking. If you have reached our website via an ad placed by Google, Google AdWords sets a cookie on your computer. The conversion tracking cookie is set when a user clicks on an ad served by Google. These cookies expire after 30 days and are not used for personal identification. If the user visits certain pages of our website and the cookie has not yet expired, we and Google can see that the user has clicked on the ad and has been redirected to this page. Each Google AdWords customer receives a different cookie. Cookies cannot therefore be traced through the websites of AdWords customers. The information collected using the conversion cookie is used to generate conversion statistics for AdWords customers who have opted for conversion tracking. Customers see the total number of users who clicked on their ad and were redirected to a page with a conversion tracking tag. However, you will not receive any information that personally identifies users.
If you do not wish to participate in tracking, you can refuse the setting of a cookie required for this – for example via browser settings that generally deactivate the automatic setting of cookies or set your browser so that cookies are blocked by the “googleleadservices.com” domain.
Please note that you may not delete the opt-out cookies as long as you do not wish measurement data to be recorded. If you have deleted all your cookies in your browser, you must set the respective opt-out cookie again.
Legal basis for these Google tools
The data processed by cookies of these tools are necessary for the above-mentioned purposes in order to protect our legitimate interests and those of third parties pursuant to Art. 6 para. 1 sentence 1 f GDPR, whereby our entitlement arises from the fact that on the one hand we have an interest in evaluating the data of the website for the purposes of its optimization and on the other hand, a person concerned can reasonably foresee at the time of the collection of the personal data, and in view of the circumstances in which it takes place (in particular the above-mentioned measures), that processing for this purpose may possibly take place.
Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our websites. YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA is the operator of the corresponding plug-ins. When you visit a page with the YouTube plugin, a connection to YouTube servers is established. YouTube will be informed which pages you visit. If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behavior to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account beforehand.
If you have deactivated the storage of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to deal with such cookies when viewing YouTube videos. YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you want to prevent this, you must block the saving of cookies in your browser.
Additional information on data protection at “YouTube” can be found in the provider's data protection declaration at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en&gl=de
What rights do you have regarding your data?
The users of the website have a right of access to the personal data stored about them and also a right to correction of incorrect data, restriction of processing and deletion, as well as objection to processing and data transferability.
The person concerned has the right to revoke his data protection declaration of consent at any time. The revocation of consent shall not affect the legality of the processing carried out on the basis of the consent until revocation. The legal basis is the right of objection according to Art. 21 GDPR.
The existence of a right of appeal to a supervisory authority is pointed out.
