How are Your Data Processed and Used in the Context of Google Analytics?

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Irland ("Google").

You can find further information on how Google uses information from sites or apps that use its services here:

https://www.google.com/policies/technologies/partner-sites/

Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, which are text files placed on your computer, to help the website analyse how users use the site. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website such as pages visited and

  • browser type and version,
  • operating system of your computer,
  • referrer URL (i.e. the page last visited),
  • host name of accessing computer (IP address),
  • date and time of server request

is usually transferred to a Google server and stored there.

It is possible that such data processing may take place in certain so-called third countries outside of the European Economic Area, in particular in the USA. You should be aware that in such third countries not only the recipients may process your data in manners, or for purposes, not compliant with European legislation, but also public authorities may have access to your data in a scope, or for purposes, not compliant with European legislation. In such third countries there might not be a supervisory authority and/or data processing principles and/or the statutory data subject rights described in this Privacy Policy might not be provided for.

For your protection, we have chosen settings based on which the IP addresses of users of Google within Member States of the European Union or in other signatory states to the Agreement on the European Economic Area will be truncated beforehand.

Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and truncated there

The data listed above can be captured and used across devices through identification, e.g. login to Google services. This makes it possible for Google to capture that you start your visit of our website on a PC and continue it on a mobile device and the data from both devices can be combined. We have not activated the User-ID adjustment and thus do not collect this data.

On our behalf Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website and Internet use.

We have chosen settings to erase analytics data after 26 months in order to be able to compile and compare statistical data.

The IP address transmitted by your browser in the context of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

Disabling add-on: You can prevent the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings on your browser, however, please note that if you do this you may not be able to use this website’s full functionality.

In the version of our website optimised for mobile browsers we have provided a special deactivation option.

Finally, please note that on this website, Google Analytics has been supplemented with the code "gat._anonymizeIp();" to ensure anonymous collection of IP addresses (so-called IP masking).

You can find additional information on the use and protection of your data in connection with Google Analytics on the Google Analytics help pages (https://support.google.com/analytics/answer/6004245?hl=en).

We have concluded a data processing agreement with Google to ensure that personal data are processed only on our behalf and in accordance with our instructions.
