Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereafter referred to as “Google”. Google Analytics uses so-called ‘cookies’, text files that are stored in your computer to enable your use of the website to be analysed.
The information generated by these cookies, e.g. concerning the time, place and frequency of your website visits including your IP address, is sent to Google in the USA and stored there.
Our website uses Google Analytics with an IP anonymization function. This ensures that Google will already truncate, and thus anonymize, your IP address within the member states of the European Union or other states party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area.
Google will use this information to analyse your use of our website, compile reports about website activities for us, and provide further services related to website use and internet use. Google will also provide these data to third parties insofar as this is statutorily required or to the extent in which third parties process them at Google’s behest.
Google has announced that your IP address will not be linked with any other Google data under any circumstances. You can prevent the installation of cookies by providing your browser software with the corresponding settings, but we need to point out that you may not be able to make full use of all our website’s functions in this case.
For the most commonly used browsers, Google furthermore offers a deactivation option that gives you greater control over which data will be collected and processed by Google. If you activate this option, no information about your website visit will be provided to Google Analytics. Its activation will not prevent the provision of information to us and/or web analysis services we may use, however. For more information about the deactivation option provided by Google and its activation, please use the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=de
