The website operator has a legitimate interest to analyse user behaviour to enable him to optimise both his web offering and his advertising. If the corresponding consent has been requested, processing will be exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and Art. 25(1) TTDSG (German Telecommunications-Telemedia Data Protection Act), to the extent that this includes the consent for storing cookies or accessing information on the user’s terminal device (e.g. device fingerprinting) in accordance with the TTDSG.
