Information about data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the person responsible for data processing on this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then Google Analytics will be processed by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google."

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the computer of the site visitor and allow an analysis of the use of the website by the site visitor. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the shortened IP address) are usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension "_anonymizeIp ()" on this website. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening and excludes a direct personal reference. The extension truncates Google's IP address within member states of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be sent to a Google server in the US and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by Google Analytics within the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data provided by Google.

On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the resulting information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with additional services related to website activity and internet usage (Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f DSGVO). The legitimate interest in data processing lies in the optimization of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interests of the users are adequately protected by the pseudonymization.

Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here.) and guarantees an appropriate level of data protection on this basis. The data sent and linked with cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. Data whose retention period has expired is automatically deleted once a month.

The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the page visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with future effect. The corresponding browser plug-in can be downloaded and installed under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

The page visitor can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents the future collection of data when you visit this website.

reCAPTCHA

We use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. (Google) to protect your inquiries via the Internet form. The query serves to differentiate whether the input is made by a human being or is misused by automated, mechanical processing. The query includes sending the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, Google will shorten your IP address beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address is only transferred to a Google server in the USA and abbreviated there in exceptional cases. Google will use this information on behalf of the operator of this website to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The differing data protection regulations of the company Google apply to this data.
