We use Google Analytics to analyze and improve the use of our website.
Google Analytics is a web analysis service of Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses “cookies,” text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of how you use the website. The information collected by the cookie on your use of this website is generally transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymization is activated on this website, Google will first truncate your IP address within Member States of the European Union or in other countries that are party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the entire IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing the website operator with other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The legal basis for the processing of data with the help of Google Analytics is art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The IP address transmitted by your browser within the context of Google Analytics will not be associated with any other data held by Google.
You can prevent the saving of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly. However, we would like to point out that you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their full extent in this case. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address), as well as the processing of this data by Google, by downloading and installing the browser add-on available at the following link:
We use Google Analytics with the extension “_anonymizeIp()”. The IP addresses are truncated by this (called IP masking). A reference to certain people can thus be eliminated. Google takes part in the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. This means that there is an appropriate data protection level, even in the exceptional cases where Google sends personal data to the USA.
