Section 7 Integration of Google Analytics and Universal Analytics

(1) This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (‘Google’). Google Analytics uses Cookies, text files which are stored on your computer and enable the analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website will as a rule be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, if IP anonymisation is activated on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and provide other services relating to website activity and Internet usage to the website operator.

(2) The IP address transmitted by your browser within the scope of Google Analytics will not be combined with other data held by Google.

(3) You can prevent the storage of cookies by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that, in this case, you may not be able to use all functions of this website to their fullest extent. You can also prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google and the processing of these data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en.

(4) This website uses Google Analytics with the extension ‘_anonymizeIp()’. This has the effect of truncating IP addresses before further processing, so that the data cannot be related to any specific person. If the data that is collected about you allows conclusions about you as a person, this is immediately prevented and the relevant personal data are thus erased immediately.

(5) We use Google Analytics to analyse and regularly improve the usability of our website. We use the statistics obtained to improve our site and make it more interesting for you as a user. For those exceptional cases where personal data is transferred to the USA, Google is subject to the EU-US Privacy Shield, https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework. The legal basis for the use of Google Analytics is Art. 6 (1)(1)(f) GDPR.
