Google Analytics


We use the tool Google Analytics by Google (Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA). Google Analytics works with text files that are stored on your device (so-called “cookies”) in order to obtain information on your website use. Google uses this information on our behalf in order to provide us with evaluations of your website use, reports on activities on the website and further services. The data regarding your website use, collected with the help of “cookies”, are usually transferred to the servers of Google in the USA and are stored there. Data that may otherwise exist about you and is deposited at Google will not be combined.


Moreover, we use the masking function “anonymizeIP“. Before your IP address is transferred to the Google servers in the USA, it is shortened in the EU. Unshortened IP addresses are transferred in rare cases only and are subsequently shortened on servers in the USA. You may avoid this processing by means of the following measures: It is possible to set your browser so that no “cookies” are stored. This may, however, cause our website to not function properly. Furthermore, it is possible to prevent data collection by means of a browser add-on by Google. This add-on can be found here: tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout

This will set a cookie that prevents data collection. If you revisit our website with a different device or browser, or if you have erased your cookies, you have to set the cookie again.
