Due to our interests, this website uses the “Google Analytics” service for the optimization and analysis of our online offer within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) lit. f. DSGVO the service “Google Analytics”, which is provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). The service (Google Analytics) uses “cookies” – text files that are stored on your terminal device. The information collected by the cookies is usually sent to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google LLC complies with European data protection law and is certified under the Privacy Shield agreement:
IP anonymization is used on this website. The IP address of the user is shortened within the member states of the EU and the European Economic Area and in the other states party to the agreement. Only in individual cases is the IP address initially transmitted unabbreviated to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. This shortening eliminates the personal reference of your IP address. The user’s IP address transmitted by the browser is not combined with other data stored by Google. Under the terms of the commissioned data agreement that we have concluded with Google Inc., the latter uses the information collected to create an evaluation of website use and website activity and provides services associated with internet use. The data collected by Google on our behalf is used to evaluate the use of our online offering by individual users, e.g. to create reports on website activity in order to improve our online offering.
Google Analytics has been implemented via the Google Tag Manager. The Google Tag Manager is a Google service that can be used to manage website tags. The tool itself does not process any personal data. More about this in the usage guidelines: https://www.google.com/intl/de/tagmanager/use-policy.html
