4. Integration of External Services

We integrate external services or content on our website. When you use such a service or when third-party content is displayed to you, communication data is exchanged between you and the respective provider for technical reasons.

In addition, the provider of the respective content or services may process Your Data for own purposes. We have configured services or content from providers known to process data for their own purposes to the best of our knowledge in such a way that either communication for purposes other than displaying the content or services on our website does not take place, or communication only takes place when you actively decide to use the respective services.

We use the following external services:


Readspeaker is a read-aloud function for Internet content that has been implemented to provide a barrier-free access possible to our website.

Readspeaker works as follows:

The content to be read aloud is either sent by the client web browser (POST) or loaded from Readspeaker's servers (GET). This depends on the chosen implementation.  The data is sent over an encrypted channel using HTTPS (TLS >=1.2).

The content is processed internally on site to convert it into speech. Once this is done, a redirect is sent back to the user, redirecting the web browser to our servers that generated the audio file.

This does not require any text content to be stored permanently, the data is only stored temporarily during the creation of the audio file and use of the same audio file by the user.

Readspeaker uses two cookies:

  • A session cookie that determines if the script is loaded when the page is loaded. This cookie is called "_rspkrLoadCore”. The cookie is set after Readspeaker has been activated. This cookie is used to tell Readspeaker that a user has activated Readspeaker on a page. The session cookie is deleted after the session expires.
  • A Cookie called "ReadSpeakerSettings". This cookie has a default lifetime of 360000000 ms (i.e. approx. 4 days), which can be changed with the configuration "general.cookieLifetime". This cookie is used to store the settings of individual users so that they do not have to reapply their preferred webReader settings on every page they navigate to.

All external services listed under Section 4 are used the interest of an optimized presentation of our online offers. This constitutes a legitimate interest within the meaning of Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f GDPR.
