Use of Google Analytics

Type and purpose of processing:

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA (hereinafter: "Google"). Google Analytics uses so-called "cookies", ie text files that are stored on your computer and that enable your use of the website to be analyzed. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there. However, due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, 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 is only transmitted 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 the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide the website operator with other services relating to website activity and internet usage. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.

The purpose of data processing is to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the Internet, further related services are then to be provided.

Legal basis:

The data is processed on the basis of the user's consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Receiver:

The recipient of the data is Google as the processor. For this purpose, we have concluded the corresponding order processing contract with Google.

Storage period:

The data is deleted as soon as it is no longer required for our recording purposes.

Third country transfer:

Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Provision Mandatory Or Required:

The provision of your personal data is voluntary, based solely on your consent. If you prevent access, this can lead to functional restrictions on the website.

Revocation of Consent:

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 full extent. You can also prevent Google from collecting the data generated by the cookie and relating to your use of the website (including your IP address) and from processing this data by Google by downloading the browser plug-in available under the following link and install: Browser add-on to deactivate Google Analytics.

Additionally or as an alternative to the browser add-on, you can prevent tracking by Google Analytics on our website by clicking this link. An opt-out cookie will be installed on your device. This will prevent future collection by Google Analytics for this website and for this browser as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.

Profiling:

With the help of the tracking tool Google Analytics, the behavior of the website visitors can be evaluated and the interests analyzed. To do this, we create a pseudonymous user profile.

Use of script libraries (Google Web Fonts)

Type and purpose of processing:

In order to present our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use “Google Web Fonts” from Google LLC (1600 Amphitheater Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043, USA; hereinafter “Google”) to display fonts.

The privacy policy of the library operator Google can be found here: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/

Legal basis:

The legal basis for the integration of Google web fonts and the associated data transfer to Google is your consent (Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. a GDPR).

Receiver:

Calling up script libraries or font libraries automatically triggers a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible - but currently also unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes - that the operator collects Google data in this case.

Storage period:

We do not collect any personal data through the integration of Google web fonts.

You can find more information about Google Web Fonts at https://developers.google.com/fonts/faq and in Google's data protection declaration: https://www.google.com/policies/privacy/.

Third country transfer:

Google processes your data in the USA and has submitted to the EU_US Privacy Shield https://www.privacyshield.gov/EU-US-Framework.

Provision Mandatory Or Required:

The provision of personal data is neither required by law nor by contract. However, the correct representation of the content using standard fonts may not be possible.

Revocation of Consent:

The JavaScript programming language is regularly used to display the content. You can therefore object to data processing by deactivating the execution of JavaScript in your browser or installing a JavaScript blocker. Please note that this can lead to functional restrictions on the website.

SSL encryption

In order to protect the security of your data during transmission, we use state-of-the-art encryption methods (e.g. SSL) over HTTPS.
