CCM will not pass the personal data you have provided on to third parties without your explicit consent. The details are laid down in this Privacy Notice.
The legal basis for the processing of personal data for this purpose is provided by Article 6(1)(b) GDPR.

Cookies and analytics
CCM uses so-called cookies on this website. Cookies are small files that your Internet browser saves on your PC and that contain pseudonymised data. Cookies do not damage your computer or contain any viruses.
You can withdraw your consent at any time and delete existing cookies by disabling and removing them via your web browser. You can find detailed information on deleting or
disabling cookies in the help texts for your browser or on the Internet, for example, by using the search terms “Disable cookies” or “Delete cookies”.
The legal basis for the processing of usage data is provided by Article 6(1)(a) GDPR.
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, text files that are saved on your computer and that allow your use of the website to be analysed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website (including your IP address) is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.
If IP anonymization is activated on this website, your IP address will be shortened by Google beforehand within the member states of the European Union or other signatories to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server in the USA and truncated there.
Google will use this information on behalf of the website operator to analyse your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services to the website operator relating to website and Internet use. The IP address transferred by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent the installation of cookies using the corresponding setting in your browser. We would, however, like to point out that this may prevent you from making full use of all the functions of this website. You can also prevent the data generated by the cookie related to your usage of the website, including your IP address, from being collected and processed by Google by downloading and installing the appropriate browser add-on.
Alternatively, you can prevent data being collected by Google Analytics by using a special Opt-Out Cookie, which prevents your data from being collected in future when you visit this website.
You can also find detailed information in Google’s Terms of Service and overview of privacy. We would like to point out that Google Analytics was extended on this website by the _anonymizeIp() function in order to guarantee the anonymised collection of IP addresses (IP masking).
We use the Google reCAPTCHA service on this website. The provider is Google LLC., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA (hereinafter referred to as “Google”). The purpose of using Google reCAPTCHA is to check whether form entries on our website are being made by natural persons or machine programs in order to protect against misuse and the automated sending of spam. This is a legitimate interest under the terms of Art. 6, Para. 1, lit. f of the GDPR.
For this purpose, Google reCAPTCHA analyses the website visitor’s behaviour using a variety of features. This analysis process starts automatically as soon as the visitor lands on the website. To this end, the service evaluates various pieces of information, such as the IP address, the time spent on the website or mouse movements made by the visitor. The data collected in the context of the analysis is sent to Google servers. The reCAPTCHA analyses run completely in the background. Website visitors are not informed that analysis is taking place, and we have no influence over data transmission.
On our website, personal data related to your CCM website use is collected and stored for marketing purposes using Google technologies (Google remarketing tag). Using this data, usage profiles can be created and stored in cookies. Third-party providers, including Google, display advertisements on websites on the Internet. When doing so, third-party providers, including Google, use the information in the cookies to display advertisements based on your previous visits to our website using the remarketing tag function.
This website uses the web analysis service Hotjar from Hotjar Ltd. Hotjar Ltd. is a European company based in Malta. Hotjar enables us to track activity on our website. For example, it allows us to see how far down users scroll, and which buttons users click and how often. This gives us valuable information that allows us to make our website even faster and more customer-friendly.
Hotjar gives every user the option to prevent the use of the Hotjar tool using a “Do Not Track” header, so that no data on their visit to the relevant website is recorded. The latest versions of all common browsers support this feature. To do so, your browser sends Hotjar a request with a note to stop tracking the relevant user and to therefore withdraw the consent to use Hotjar previously given to us. You can find detailed instructions with information on your browser at: https://www.hotjar.com/opt-out.
