Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics on our website. This is a web analytics
service provided by Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow
Street, Dublin 4, Irland (hereinafter: Google).

The Google
Analytics service is used to analyze how our website is used. The
legal basis is Art. 6 Para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest
lies in the analysis, optimization, and economic operation of our
site.

Usage and user-related information, such as IP address,
place, time, or frequency of your visits to our website will be
transmitted to a Google server in the United States and stored there.
However, we use Google Analytics with the so-called anonymization
function, whereby Google truncates the IP address within the EU or the
EEA before it is transmitted to the US.

The data collected in
this way is in turn used by Google to provide us with an evaluation of
visits to our website and what visitors do once there. This data can
also be used to provide other services related to the use of our
website and of the internet in general.

Google states that it
will not connect your IP address to other data. In addition, Google
provides further information with regard to its data protection
practices at

https://www.google.com/intl/de/policies/privacy/partners,

including options you can exercise to prevent such use of your
data.

In addition, Google offers an opt-out add-on at

https://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout?hl=en

in addition with further information. This add-on can be installed
on the most popular browsers and offers you further control over the
data that Google collects when you visit our website. The add-on
informs Google Analytics’ JavaScript (ga.js) that no information about
the website visit should be transmitted to Google Analytics. However,
this does not prevent information from being transmitted to us or to
other web analytics services we may use as detailed herein.
