Analytics

The controller has integrated the component Google Analytics on this website.

Google Analytics is a web analytics service. Web analysis is the gathering, collection and analysis of data about the behavior of visitors to websites. Among other things, a web analysis service collects data on which website a data subject has come to a website from (so-called referrers), which subpages of the website were accessed or how often and for which period of time a subpage was viewed. A web analysis is mainly used to optimize a website and for the cost-benefit analysis of Internet advertising.

The operator of the Google Analytics component is Google Inc., 1600 Amphitheatre Pkwy, Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA.

Google Analytics uses cookies. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server and stored there. Google might transfer the personal information collected via this technical procedure to third parties.

Your IP address is sent to a Google server, but is not viewable by the operator of this website. Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compile reports on website activity and to provide further services related to website and internet use. The IP address transferred through your browser to Google Analytics will not be combined with other data held by Google.

You may prevent the collection of the data generated by Google Analytics cookies and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) by Google as well as the processing of this data by Google by downloading and installing the browser plug-in available under the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en. This browser add-on informs Google Analytics via JavaScript that no data and information about website visits may be transmitted to Google Analytics. In addition, a cookie already set by Google Analytics can be deleted at any time via the Internet browser or other software programs.

Further information and Google‘s applicable privacy regulations can be found at https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en and https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/. The following link provides a further explanation of Google Analytics https://marketingplatform.google.com/about/.
