Information regarding data processing in connection with Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Ireland Limited. If the controller of this website is located outside the European Economic Area or Switzerland, then 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 page visitor’s computer and that enable an analysis of the website’s use by the visitor. The information generated by the cookie regarding the use of this website by the page visitor (including the abbreviated IP address) is generally transmitted to a Google server and stored there.
Google Analytics is only used with the “_anonymizeIp () " extension on this website. This extension ensures anonymisation of the IP address by reducing it and excludes direct personal reference. The extension will result in Google’s IP address being shortened beforehand within Member States of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases is the full IP address transferred to a Google server in the USA and shortened there. The IP address transmitted by the corresponding browser as part of Google Analytics is not combined with other data from Google.
On behalf of the website operator, Google will use the information generated in order to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other services related to the use of the website and the internet to the website operator (Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR). The legitimate interest in data processing is the optimisation of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interests of the users are adequately safeguarded by pseudonymisation.
Google LLC. is certified according to the so-called Privacy Shield (list entry here) and therefore guarantees an adequate level of data protection. The data sent and associated with cookies, user IDs or advertising IDs are automatically deleted after 50 months. The deletion of data whose retention period has been reached shall occur 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 future effect. The corresponding browser plugin can be downloaded and installed at the following link: https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en-GB.
The page visitor can prevent the collection by Google Analytics on this website by clicking on the following link. An opt-out cookie is set, which prevents the future collection of data when visiting this website.
Further information on the use of data by Google, settings and objection options, can be found in Google’s Privacy Statement (https://policies.google.com/privacy) as well as in the settings for the display of advertisements by Google (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).
