Data Protection

Notes on the data protection declaration

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service from Google Ireland Limited. If the person responsible for data processing on this website is outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC. Google LLC and Google Ireland Limited are hereinafter referred to as "Google".

 

Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", text files that are stored on the website visitor's computer and that enable an analysis of the website visitor's use of the website. The information generated by the cookie about the use of this website by the site visitor (including the abbreviated IP address) is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there.

 

Google Analytics is only used on this website with the "_anonymizeIp ()" extension. This extension ensures anonymization of the IP address by shortening it and rules out any direct personal reference. As a result of the extension, Google's IP address will be shortened beforehand within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. The IP address transmitted by the relevant browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

 

On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the resulting information to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the site operator with other services related to website and internet use (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f GDPR). The legitimate interest in data processing lies in the optimization of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interests of the users are adequately protected by the pseudonymization.

 

Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here ) and guarantees an appropriate level of data protection on this basis. The data sent and linked to cookies, user IDs (e.g. user ID) or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has expired takes place automatically once a month.

 

The collection by Google Analytics can be prevented by the page visitor adjusting the cookie settings for this website. The collection and storage of the IP address and the data generated by cookies can also be objected to at any time with effect for the future. The corresponding browser plug-in can be downloaded and installed from the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout .

 

The page visitor can prevent Google Analytics from collecting data on this website by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set which prevents future collection of data when you visit this website.

 

Further information on the use of data by Google, setting and objection options can be found in Google's data protection declaration (https://policies.google.com/privacy ) and in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google ( https: // adssettings. google.com/authenticated ).

reCAPTCHA

To protect your inquiries via the Internet form, we use the reCAPTCHA service from Google Inc. (Google). The query is used to differentiate whether the input is made by a person or improperly by automated, machine processing. The query includes the sending of the IP address and any other data required by Google for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. For this purpose, your input will be transmitted to Google and used there. However, your IP address will be shortened beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The full IP address will only be sent to a Google server in the USA and shortened there in exceptional cases. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of reCaptcha will not be merged with other Google data. The different data protection provisions of Google apply to this data. Further information on Google's data protection guidelines can be found at: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=de
