Google Analytics uses so-called “Cookies”, text files stored on your computer that permit analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However in the case of activation of IP address anonymization, your IP address will first be shortened by Google within the Member States of the European Union or in other treaty states of the Convention of 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 website operators, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports about the website activities and to render other services in connection with website use and Internet use to the website operator.

This website uses Google Analytics with the function “_anonymizeIp()”. Thus IP addresses are processed in shortened form. A personal trace to the data subject can thus be ruled out. To the extent the personal data collected about you contains a personal relationship this is immediately excluded and the personal data is thus immediately erased.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the use of our website and to regularly improve it. With the statistics obtained we can improve our offer and design it to be more interesting to you as user. For the exceptional cases that personal data is transmitted in the USA, Google is certified under the Privacy Shield Convention and thus offers a guarantee to comply with European data protection law, www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.
