    Insofar as you have given your consent, Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google LLC, is used on this website. The responsible service provider in the EU is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland ("Google").

    Scope of processing
    Google Analytics uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on your computer and enable an analysis of your use of our websites. The information collected by means of the cookies about your use of this website is generally transferred to a Google server in the USA and stored there.

    The use includes the Universal Analytics mode of operation: through this it is possible to assign data, sessions and interactions across multiple devices to a pseudonymous user ID and thereby analyze the activities of a user across devices.

    We use the function 'anonymizeIP' (so-called IP masking): Due to the activation of IP anonymization on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within member states of the European Union or in other contracting states of the Agreement on the European Economic Area. The IP address transmitted by your browser as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other data from Google.

    During your website visit, the following data is collected, among other things:

    • achievement of “website goals” (conversions, e.g. newsletter sign-ups, downloads)
    • your user behavior (for example, clicks, length of stay, bounce rates)
    • your approximate location (city, country)
    • your IP address (in truncated form)
    • technical information about your browser and the end devices you use (e.g. language setting, screen resolution)
    • your Internet provider
    • the referrer URL (via which website/advertising medium you came to this Website)

    Purposes of processing
    On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website and compile reports on website activity. The reports provided by Google Analytics are used to analyze the performance of our application and the success of our marketing campaigns.

    The recipient of the data is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland as a processor. We have concluded an order processing agreement with Google for this purpose. Google LLC, based in California, USA, and, if applicable, US authorities may access the data stored by Google.

    Storage period
    The data is automatically deleted after 14 months. Data whose retention period has been reached is automatically deleted once a month.

    Legal basis and possibility of revocation
    Your consent, Art.6 para.1 first sentence lit. a GDPR is a prerequisite for such processing of data. You can withdraw your consent at any time with effect for the future; to do so, you can follow the link provided under point 4.2 "Cookies".
