Google Analytics

To the extent that you have given your consent, this website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service provided by Google LLC. The responsible party for users in the EU/EEA and Switzerland is Google Ireland Limited, Google Building Gordon House, 4 Barrow St, Dublin, D04 E5W5, Ireland ("Google").

Scope of processing
Google Analytics uses cookies that enable an analysis of your use of our websites. The information generated by the cookie about your use of the website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the US and saved there.
We use the technical enhancement "Google Signals", which allows cross-device tracking. This enables an assignment of an individual website visitor to different end devices. However, this only happens if the visitor has logged into a Google service when visiting the website and at the same time has activated the "personalized advertising" option in their Google account settings.
IP address anonymization is enabled. Due to IP anonymization, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or another state party to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transmitted to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. According to Google, the IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
Purpose and legal basis of the processing
On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, and compiling reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our website and the success of our marketing campaigns.
Storage period
The data sent by us and linked to cookies are automatically deleted after 14 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached, takes place automatically once a month.
Recipients of the data are/could be
  • Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland (as processor according to Art. 28 GDPR).
  • Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
  • Alphabet Inc, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043, USA
It cannot be ruled out that US authorities may access the data stored by Google.
Third country transfer
Where data is processed outside the EU/EEA and there is no level of data protection equivalent to the European standard, we have concluded EU standard contractual clauses with the service provider to establish an appropriate level of data protection. The parent company of Google Ireland, Google LLC, is based in California, USA. A transfer of data to the USA and access by US authorities to the data stored by Google cannot be ruled out. The USA is currently considered a third country from a data protection perspective. You do not have the same rights there as within the EU/EEA. You may not be entitled to any legal remedies against access by authorities.
Right to withdrawal
You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future by changing the DATA PRIVACY SETTINGS. The lawfulness of the processing carried out based on the consent until the revocation, remains unaffected.
You can also prevent the storage of cookies by changing your browser settings to prevent the saving of cookies. However, if you configure your browser to reject all cookies, this may result in a restriction of functionalities on this and other websites. In addition, you can prevent the collection of data generated by the cookie and related to your use of the website (including your IP address) to Google and the processing of this data by Google, by
