Google Analytics / Google Tag Manager
We use Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google, Inc. ("Google"), for the purpose of statistically evaluating access to our website. Google Analytics uses "cookies", text files which are stored on your computer and which enable an analysis of your use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored based on our legitimate interests within the meaning of Art. 6 (1) f) of GDPR. We have added the "anonymizeIP" code to Google Analytics on this website. This guarantees the masking of your IP address so that all data are collected anonymously. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the US and shortened there.
Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity, and provide other services related to the use of the website and the Internet to the website operator. The IP address provided by your browser to Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
You can prevent cookies from being saved by setting your browser software accordingly; however, we would like to point out that in this case you may not be able to fully utilise all the functions of this website.
You may also prevent Google from tracking the data generated by the cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) and the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available at the following link (http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en).
The legal basis for the processing of personal data of users is Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR.
The processing of users' personal data enables us to analyse the browsing behaviour of our users. The analysis of the data helps us to put together information about the use of the individual compenents of our website, enabling us to continue improving the website and making it more user-friendly. For these purposes, our legitimate interest also lies in the procesing of personal data in accordance with Article 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The anonymisation of the IP address sufficiently takes account of the interests of users in their protection of personal data.
The data will be erased as soon as it is no longer required for the purpose for which they were originally stored.
