Responsible entity for users in the EU, the EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ('Google').

Google Analytics uses cookies that provide insights into your use of our websites. The information collected by these cookies about your use of this website is or can be transferred to a Google server in the USA and kept stored there. We use Google Analytics by application of an anonymized IP address in the process.

With IP anonymization, your IP address will be shortened by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in in very occasional circumstances the full IP address will be transmitted to a Google server in the USA to be shortened there.

According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

By Google Analytics we can statistically analyze the use of our website for a given time but cannot draw any conclusions about a specific person and their user behavior. We need this information for the continuous improvement of our services and optimization of marketing (purpose).

During your website visit, your user behavior is recorded in 'events', such as visiting time, page views, click path, scrolls and interactions. Google Analytics also records your approximate location (region), IP address (in shortened form), technical browser information, internet service provider and referrer URL.

We have entered a processing agreement with Google and fully implemented the strict requirements of the German data protection authorities when using Google Analytics. Google Analytics has committed to the EU standard contractual clauses with regard to an eventual cross-border transfer of data to the USA.

Data stored by Google at user and event level that is linked to cookies, user identifiers (e.g. User ID) or advertising IDs (e.g. DoubleClick cookies, Android advertising ID) is anonymized or deleted after 26 months. For details, please see the following link:

You can prevent the setting of cookies by our website at any time by means of an appropriate setting of the internet browser used and thus permanently object to the setting of cookies.

Furthermore, you have the option to object to and prevent the collection of data generated by Google Analytics and related to a use of this website as well as the processing of this data by Google.
